Kanye West is running his mouth off again, this time in a new cover story for the August issue of GQ magazine.

Kanye also explained that he's not the predator when it comes to the paparazzi, he's simply out to protect wife Kim Kardashian and their daughter, North, from those getting too close for comfort.

Kanye West is the latest celebrity to compare paparazzi intrusion to rape, and actress Stacey Dash has singled him out for his remarks. During the Wireless Festival in London, West complained about the people who take photos of his family and compared it to rape.

Kanye West Isn't Doing Road Work For His Community Service
Kanye West found a pretty cool way to earn hours towards the community service sentence he was given for attacking a photographer.

West has been spotted at the L.A. Trade Technical College Monday, according to TMZ, to make his third appearance and speak to students about the fashion industry. He was there to speak to student for three hours about designers, but we bet no one was sleeping at their desk.

Kim Kardashian Wears Weird 'Rope Dress' To Cannes Lions Yacht Pa
Kim Kardashian has been fashion forward at times, but we can't remember a look as bizarre as the "rope dress" she wore to the MailOnline yacht party during Cannes Lions.

A white dress would have done just fine, but instead the reality star wore a tight gown completely covered in ropes knitted into the fabric and adorned with golden rings – we daresay it looked more like a rug. A gold zipper ran down along the entire length of the back of the Balmain dress. To top it all off, she stacked several golden rungs for necklaces. However, we will give her props for showing off her curvy figure and...

Kim Kardashian had the perfect Father's Day photo to share: Kanye West enjoying a nap with his daughter North on her birthday.

North turned one on the 15th, the same day as Father's Day, and she ended the day relaxed with her father to watch the NBA Finals game that evening. Judging by the photo, it looks like neither of them made it through the game.

The two rappers made history when they became a "superduo" for Watch the Throne, but any ideas of a follow-up could be long gone. During his concert for the X Games in Austin, fans noticed Kanye was omitting Jay-Z from his lyrics.

West refers to Jay-Z in several songs, including Blood on the Leaves. ConsequenceOfSound reports he intentionally skipped a word during the lyrics, "I don't give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z / He ain...
