It wouldn't surprise too many people to hear that Kanye West took the opportunity to preach to the captive audience of his guests at his wedding, much like he does when he takes the stage for a concert. He recently revealed what he said during his wedding toast, which is not much different from his other rants about being a celebrity victim, reports MSN Wonderwall on July 22.
In a recent interview Kanye said that in his wedding toast he talked about "celebrities being treated like blacks in the '60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name." Apparently Kanye doesn't realize that he could be his own worst enemy when he breaks out in these rants, as people are tired of hearing them.
The New York Daily News reports on Kanye's latest interview with GQ Magazine and as usual, the man had plenty to say. He loves Kim like nothing else in this world and she's the one he wants next to her. He is in awe of Kim like a kid is when they first hear about a "dinosaur" or a "fighter jet," Kanye said during the interview.
His constant whining about being a victim of society, which became the theme again during his wedding toast, is just a bit hard to comprehend. He has had more opportunities in life than most people, but for some reason he stills sees himself as coming out on the bottom of the heap.
His wedding toast went on to also include Kim as a victim and now their daughter North West is also a potential victim, according to Kanye. He said she didn't ask to be a celebrity, but she was born into it. He wants to fight to make this a better place for celebrities in the future for his daughter. His gripe is with the things people say, with many of the reports being less than accurate that make the headlines.
Maybe he needs to look at the situation with both eyes wide open. His wife has made millions upon millions tossing her modesty to the wind and letting cameras film every aspect of her life. Many credit Kim's sex tape for starting the ball rolling in her seemingly unquenchable thirst for fame for her.
Kanye married Kim, so now that he is a big part of her life, he too is now part of this huge and bizarre voyeurism gig that Kim supplies for the masses. She's invited fans into just about every personal aspect of her life, it's not as if they were peeping in her windows.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have become a multi-million dollar conglomerate through their marriage and a big part of that conglomerate is Kim's willingness to share more than the average celebrity will share on air or on the social networks.
It is hard to fathom how Kanye sees his wife as a victim after her celebrity gig consists of nothing more than living life willingly in a fishbowl. Watching the couple living in their mansion, riding in their expensive cars and taking their elaborate trips does not seem like a setting that coincides with a victim of society. Not to mention that their combined money is probably more than some small nations of the world have at their disposal. With all this taken into consideration it is hard to see Kanye and Kim as celebrity victims.
Did the interviewer hit a nerve when asking Kanye why his good friend Jay Z and his wife Beyonce were no-shows at his wedding? Kanye answered with "All that, I wouldn't even speak on." He said it didn't matter to him who showed up as long as Kim did. When talking about Kim he said he "had to fight for that for seven years."
It looks like the invited guests at Kim and Kanye's wedding had to sit through one of his rants, letting everyone know how he is a victim. One of Kanye's last rants about being a victim centered on how he was shut out of the fashion industry as no one would take him seriously. He mentioned some big names in fashion that were to blame for this, but he never once thought that he might not have what it takes to be a fashion designer.
ABC News reported on that 20 minute rant during a performance that got him boos from the crowd. It was during the July 4th Wireless Festival that Kanye spouted out about another wrong done to him. Not being awarded a place in the fashion industry started a rant that included:
“I’m not going to call no names, I’m not going to say Nike or anything,” West added.
“I’m not dissing Louis Vuitton, I’m not dissing the Gucci group,” West said. “I’m just saying don’t discriminate against me because I’m a black man or because I’m a celebrity to determine that I can’t create.”
People were heard cheering him on when he first took the stage, but a couple of minutes of the poor-me-type of speech, didn't sit well with the audience who started to boo his rant. It is too bad the man doesn't put that energy into being thankful for all he does have in life.
