    Let’s talk about Kanye West‘s wedding speech, shall we?

    If there’s one thing Yeezy loves, it’s expressing his views – so it makes sense that he’d take the opportunity to make a somewhat long-winded speech at his own wedding to Kim Kardashian on Saturday. Instead of simply thanking his guests and complimenting his beautiful bride, the groom took the mic and let loose with a barrage of Kanye-isms that were born to be quoted.

    The resulting 20-minute speech was one part romance, one part genuine emotion and three parts audacious self-congratulation. Here are some of the Kanye quotes, as reported by various attendees, that we’re eager to archive.

    1. ‘The Kardashians are an industry!”

    2. ‘[Kim is] the ideal celebrity… the ideal art.’

    3. ‘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.’

    4. ‘We are warriors! There is not one person at this table that has not had to defend us at some point or another.’
