The rapper recently sat down for an interview with GQ in which he explained the reality of his relationship with Kim versus what gets talked about in the press — and dinosaurs.
Kanye explains that, while many people expressed their feelings that he should have married a fellow musician or designer, Kim was the embodiment of something he’d never seen before, and he knew that he wanted her in his life for good.
“Kim is this girl who f—king turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around,” says Kanye. “You mean to tell me that this girl with this f—king body and this face is also into style, and she's a nice person, and she has her own money and is family-oriented? That's just as cool as a f—king fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen.”
While Kanye is known for his vocal criticisms of anyone who tries to tell him what to do, he says that his wife is the one exception to that rule.
“What I had to learn from Kim is how to take more of her advice and less of other people's advice,” he says. “There's a lot of Kim K skills that were added. In order to win at life, you need some Kim K skills, period.”
Despite his reputation as a hothead, Kanye says that it’s never his plan to unleash his anger on anyone — he just wants to live a normal life while.
“My goal is just to be respected as a man when I walk down the street with my family,” he says.
