Kanye West Speaks On Beyonce And Jay Z Not Attending His Wedding

Ten days after his nuptials to Kim Kardashian Kanye West sat down for an interview with GQ. It is inside the mag that he speaks on what all of us have been wanting to know deep inside: How he feels about his friend and mentor Jay Z along with his wife Beyonce missing his big day.

But if you read a lot of the tabloid coverage, the implication is: Kim and her family are bringing you down. Jay Z and BeyoncĂ© didn't show up at your wedding because of them. That kind of thing. 
All that, I wouldn't even speak on. It doesn't even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that's all that matters to me. I had to fight for that for seven years. But the fact that these other people showed up that are from such different worlds but have done such dynamic things—they're all, in a way, equal to what Kim has done in TV or what I had done in music. I was so moved that I just wanted people to stop and think they weren't sitting at a table full of fashion people, they weren't sitting at a table full of celebrities, they weren't sitting at a table full of movie directors. It really was a representation of the way we receive information today, post-Internet. And so Page Six can't overshadow the main point: Carine Roitfeld was sitting next to Kim Kardashian. That alone to me is like the same moment when I brought Mos Def to the studio with Jay Z. It's about the people, and the fact that they're from different walks of life, and that they're working together and not discriminating against each other. There was a class system, and now there's a creative class system, and I think that's what you were talking about a bit—the class system of creativity.

The interview is pretty decent and very true in Kanye fashion. He even opens up about him walking into a sign while being hassled by know, his usual celebrity complaints.

Two thangs:

He could be mad. He doesn't sound understanding.
Or he knows the elevator incident (and Rachel Roy) was the reasoning as to why they didn't show.

He's not as unmoved as he's coming off but thanks for the opportunity to post about it, 'Ye!!
