Kanye West is known for his epic rants. He did not disappoint with his wedding speech on Saturday about himself, wife Kim, and the Kardashians, who he called an “industry.” In a nearly 20-minute speech, West went off on one of his favorite topics… celebrity. The rapper told the 200 guests, “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,” he added. West reportedly crowed at the wedding, “The Kardashians are an industry!”

“We are warriors!” he is said to have further exclaimed. And of his new wife, West said she’s the “ideal celebrity… the ideal art.” Mostly, though, he said touchingly that he’s excited about “spending every single day of my life with Kim.” We presume daughter North was mentioned somewhere in there, too.

As Gossip Cop reported, Kardashian and West’s wedding ceremony was held in Florence, after a multi-day celebrating with family and friends in Paris. Attendees included both their families (sans Rob Kardashian and Brody Jenner), along with famous pals ranging from John Legend and Chrissy Teigen to LaLa Anthony and Carmelo Anthony.
