According to Page Six, Kanye and Kim spent four days working on their infamous wedding instagram because Annie Leibovitz backed out at the last second. Can you believe she would do that? Or better yet, can you imagine these two slaving over Photoshop, trying to get the perfect shade of off-white for their flower wall? It must be nearly as hard as filming a reality show.
Here are some of our favorite Kanye quotes from the piece:
“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.” I'm sure Annie Leibovitz, who's been photographing celebrities longer than we've known of the existence of Kanye and Kim, was afraid of celebrity. Also, their honeymoon sounds like it was extremely fun. Guess you had to be there.
“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." OH NO THE FLOWERS ARE OFF COLOR WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THEIR MARRIAGE???
“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." ...I love when Kanye gets super eloquent.
“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." The mission!?!? He's making this sound like the Crusades. It's only an instagram Focker!!!
