Kanye West has been delusional for a long time now, comparing Kim Kardashian to Kate Middleton and acting as if she's an acclaimed, talented person instead of a reality star with a sex tape.
But now his insanity has reached new depths with the admission that he spent FOUR DAYS editing a photo for Instagram - because Kim is apparently sooooo important to the internet.
“Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding. I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity,” Kanye said during a panel at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity Monday.
“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 [above] for, like, four days because the flowers were off-color. 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. Can you imagine telling someone … 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.”
Ok, just putting aside the astounding amount of bullshit Kanye manged to spout in that one paragraph, how HILARIOUS is it that he accused Annie Leibovitz, one of the most acclaimed photographers in the world, who has worked with the creme de la creme of the fashion and art world, of pulling out of his wedding because she was intimidated by star power?Oh, Kanye. Adorable.
