Kanye West Gushes
About New Wife Kim
Kanye West thinks the Kardashian family are "the most remarkable people of our time."
The New Slaves hitmaker gushed about his new wife, Kim Kardashian, and her famous family during several lengthy speeches at their wedding at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy on Saturday.
During one 20-minute "public warfare" rant, the opinionated rapper talked about the perks and pitfalls of their celebrity status, saying: "They feel like it's okay to put you on the tabloid covers to sell your image, to use you in an SNL spoof. We don't negotiate. We're not like that. We're not stupid. The Kardashians are an industry!"
"At this table...the combination of powers...can make the world a better place. The most remarkable people of our time."
An insider told UsMagazine.com the couple's 200 guests weren't surprised by Kanye's decision to speak several times, adding: "We all knew those would be coming. It would have been disappointing if it didn't happen."
The Blood On The Leaves hitmaker also repeatedly praised his "beautiful" bride, calling her "the ideal celebrity... the ideal art," and said he was looking forward to "spending every day of my life with Kim."
The couple, who have 11-month-old daughter North, partied until 2.30am after tying the knot in front of a wall of flowers at sunset.
Guests included rappers Common, Big Sean and Tyga, and John Legend provided the entertainment at their reception.
The insider said, "It was just the most perfect night. And for all the talk about it being over the top or crazy -- it really wasn't! It was just the most beautifully put together, chic, intimate celebration. I don't think anyone will forget it.
"[The ceremony] was beautiful. Absolutely magnificent. The music was perfect - Kanye was very happy!"
