‘My feelings don’t matter anymore.’

Kanye West, in a GQ interview with Zach Baron:

Kim is this girl who fucking turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around. And then people would try to say, "Well, you know, if you're a musician, you should be with a musician, and if you want to design, you need to be with a girl from the design world." I don't give a fuck about people's opinions. Because when a kid falls in love with an airplane or a bike or a dinosaur—especially if you're an only child and it's not because of the book that the sibling was reading—it's like, fuck, you mean to tell me that the dinosaurs walked the earth and stuff like that?! That's amazing! You mean to tell me that these giant multi-ton crafts can fly that fast and that loud, and they can flip, and there's danger, the possibility of them exploding? That's fucking cool! You mean to tell me that this girl with this fucking 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 fucking fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen.

I don’t begrudge anyone for disliking Kanye West—he’s obnoxious. But for those of us who are endlessly fascinated by his endless supernovaing in public (as well as his music, of course), I think the next few years, as he has clearly become comfortable with his role in life, are going to be the most interesting yet.
