Kanye West considers himself a god in many ways, but now wants his fans to look like one, too. In his new interview for GQ, out July 29, Kanye promises to teach the secret of “how to dress like a god.” Seems like he’s just the man for the job, as GQ calls Kanye a “style god of epic proportions.”
“Man of many talents, style god of epic proportions, new father, devoted husband, and now, a GQ cover. Kanye West tells us how to grow up, survive a wedding, stay outrageous, and dress like a God.”
Fashion god status aside, Kanye reveals that first and foremost, he wants to be a man. “My goal is just to be respected as a man when I walk down the street. You’re not gonna try to get a rise out of me. I’m a man first.” In addition to being a man, he also wants to be… a blowfish? Kanye tells GQ, “I’m a blowfish. I’m not a shark. 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.”
Kim showed support of her new hubby, posting an Instagram pic of Kanye’s cover shot, writing, “So sexy! My husband on the cover of GQ!”
Looks like things are all peaceful in the Kanye-Kim world, though rumors circulate aplenty. As we’ve previously reported, a source close to the couple claims Kim has changed too much for Kanye and is truly unhappy:
“From demanding Kim overhaul her wardrobe, to forcing her to hang out with his friends, Kanye has just completely taken over her life. Kim doesn’t have any interests of her own that Kanye doesn’t approve of. By all appearances, Kim looks like she has it all — a perfect husband, and a beautiful daughter — but the light and joy in her eyes is gone.”
Rocky marriage or not, Kim and Kanye still have baby North to think about, a daughter for whom they’ve recently hired a baby double for. According to the NY Daily News, the couple held auditions in Los Angeles to find the spitting image of North, so as to protect their year-old baby from the paparazzi. Kim and Kanye shelled out half a million for the baby double in hopes that the baby double will keep photographers at bay.
