Kanye West
has a lot to say about his wife, Kim Kardashian!

The rapper appears in the new issue of GQ magazine, where he opens up about his destination wedding, his relationship with the paparazzi and confesses his love for the reality star.

West -- who tied the knot with the 33-year-old in Italy earlier this year -- says that the big day was a bit of a disaster.

When the interviewer reads the rapper a passage from Page Six about the couple's wedding -- which claims Kanye had a meltdown and sawed the bar in half before the pair said "I do" -- the "Gold Digger" crooner says that never happened.

"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. The bathrooms—that usually would be a porta-potty—were wrapped in a fabric that was neutral to match the fort. The bar was terrible, and the wedding planner didn't approve it with me. I was having issues with this wedding planner the entire time on approvals, and I get there and they threw some weird plastic bar there. So the same materials that were used to cover the bathroom, we said, 'Let's just use that, because this is all we have to make the bar look better.' Which it did, in the end. And anyone knows that you cannot pick up tools yourself, because of—what are those rules about the workers?," the singer explains.

West says that because of the labor unions oversees, he was not allowed to personally work on the property before the big day. The report also says that Kanye gave a 45-minute toast to himself ... which he doesn't deny.

"And what I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the '60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name. I said that in the toast. And I had to say this in a position where I, from the art world, am marrying Kim. And how we're going to fight to raise the respect level for celebrities so that my daughter can live a more normal life. She didn't choose to be a celebrity. But she is. So I'm going to fight to make sure she has a better life," he explains.

The mag also asks the "Bound 2" singer about his recent headline making blow outs with the paparazzi ... specifically that time he walked into a sign and hit his head.

"I'm a blowfish. I'm not a shark, I'm a blowfish. So that perfect example about me hitting my head, it's like a blowfish. I wasn't coming out of my house going to a paparazzi's house to attack them. I'm defending my family in front of my own house. 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 am I that. I wouldn't want to hurt anyone. I want to defend people. I want to help people," he reveals.

And the analogies don't stop there -- Kanye also says that he feels like he's a boxer in the ring, and constantly has to defend himself from the media and the public.

"One of the things that I said at the speech was, anyone that's at this table has had to defend me or Kim or both of us at some point in their life. Ask a boxer: 'In the third round, when he hit you from the side on your ear, how did that specifically feel?' You wouldn't ask a boxer that. Because you know they're there to fight. Meaning now you know I'm here to fight. I'm here to fight for the re-education of what celebrity is. To say, 'Yes, we are celebrities, but yes, we're also innovators, we're also inventors, we're also thoughtful,'" he says.

And when it comes to Kim, his wife and the mother of his daughter North West, Kanye compares her to a rare dinosaur and confirms that she's definitely the right woman for him.

"Kim is this girl who f--king 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--k 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--k, 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--king cool! You mean to tell me that this girl with this f--king 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--king fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen," he explains.
