Kanye West: Kim is my 'dinosaur'

Kanye West has cleared up some rumours about what really went on during his wedding day and explained why wife Kim Kardashian is his "dinosaur".
In an interview with GQ, the rapper addressed a rumour that he had taken a saw to a bar in front of the toilets at the wedding venue himself.
He said: "For the person that wrote that, were they involved with anything last year that was as culturally significant as the Yeezus tour or that album? They didn't even talk there about the photographs, or the dress, or Andrea Bocelli singing, or the marble tables. They're like: 'It's a gold toilet.' No."
Kanye explained he had not been consulted on the colour of the bar next to the toilets and suggested changing it to something else that matched the outside of the bathrooms, adding: "And anyone knows that you cannot pick up tools yourself, because of - what are those rules about the workers? Yeah, unions. You can't do that. It's illegal. That's false."
He said of the wedding: "I am a black American male from Chicago who had my rehearsal dinner at Versailles and then got married in Florence with a view of the entire city."
Talking about what he loves about reality TV star Kim, Kanye said: "Like they said in Step Brothers: Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur.
"Kim is this girl who f***ing 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 f*** 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, f***, 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 f***ing cool!
"You mean to tell me that this girl with this f***ing 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***ing fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen."
He continued: "What I had to learn from Kim is how to take more of her advice and less of other people's advice. There's a lot of Kim K skills that were added. In order to win at life, you need some Kim K skills, period."
