Kanye West Blasts Annie Leibovitz for Missing Wedding
He’s always interesting and usually pretty thought-provoking, and Kanye West definitely made an impression at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity today (June 17).
The “Gold Digger” rapper showed up in Cannes, France and discussed some beef he’s had with famed photographer Annie Leibovitz regarding his wedding with Kim Kardashian last month.
Kanye explained, “Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that my girl put up … this was pissing my girl off during the honeymoon, she was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much because Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding. I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity.”
“Because Annie pulled out, I was like, ‘Okay, I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz,’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for, like, four days because the flowers were off-color. Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the No. 1 person on Instagram, ‘We need to work on the color of the flower wall,’ or the idea that it’s a Givenchy dress, and it’s not about the name Givenchy, it’s about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci — and how important Kim is to the Internet.”
“And the fact the No. 1 most-liked photo [on Instagram] has a kind of aesthetic was a win for what the mission is, which is raising the palette. It was a long time. Why did Annie Leibovitz pull out one day before the wedding?”
