Some early problems...
In an interview with GQ, Kanye West admitted that he and Kim Kardashian had some communication issues early in their marriage, and he had to work harder to become more of a team. Here are highlights:
On learning to communicate with his wife: "Both me and Kim had to learn how to communicate as a team. These are two LeBrons, you know? Meaning she could do sh*t that a girlfriend in a relationship could never do. Obviously. And I could do stuff that a guy in a relationship could never do. So if you look at half my tweets back then, they were always, like, funny tweets that I wouldn't be able to say now. It wouldn't be respectful to my relationship. It's interesting as I'm delving into being married."
On his opinion of Kim: "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. 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."
On people having the wrong opinion about him: "I don't have fangs. I'm a porcupine. I'm a blowfish. Like, I'm a — what's that fish that blows up? Yeah, I'm a blowfish. I'm not a shark, I'm a blowfish . . . I'm defending my name as someone's screaming something negative at me. That's a blowfish. People have me pinned as a shark or a predator in some way, and in no way and I that. I wouldn't want to hurt anyone. I want to defend people. I want to help people."
