Seth Rogen, James Franco Spoof Kimye’s Vogue Cover: “It Had To Be Done”
Seth Rogen and James Franco strike again.
The duo, who hysterically spoofed Kanye West’s “Bound 2” video last year, has already managed to re-create Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s recent Vogue cover. Rogen took to Twitter to share the funny image of he and Frano’s faces photo-shopped onto the engaged couple’s bodies.
“It had to be done,” the funnyman captioned the image.
On Friday, Kimye’s photo cover was released and the couple could not have been more happy. Kim took to Instagram to share the photo, writing:
“This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can’t even breath!”
And while many believe that Kanye practically begged editor Anna Wintour to use his fiancee on the cover, Wintour says that is not the case.
“Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T.,” she wrote in a statement.
“As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.”
“There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”
