Correction: Kanye West Is NOT Mad At Annie Leibovitz!

Published

on

Once again, Kanye West has been misunderstood. The rapper claims his recent comments about famed photographer, Annie Leibovitz were “taken out of context and sensationalized.”

During the 2014 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, West spoke about being upset that Lebovitz backed out of shooting his and Kim Kardashian’s wedding at the last minute.

“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,” Yeezy stated.

But, now the rapper is singing a different tune. In a joint statement obtained by HipHollywood, Kanye and Annie’s reps are painting a much different picture about what really happened.

Although Kanye expressed frustration that he was not able to collaborate with Annie Leibovitz at his recent wedding, he is not assigning blame, and is not accusing Annie in any way. Kanye and Annie’s representatives were in negotiations for weeks that were not completed by the time of the wedding.

“Annie would have been happy to do the portrait but she was never confirmed,” said a representative for Leibovitz.

Sounds like Yeezy’s doing a bit of back tracking.

It was Kanye’s dream to bring together for the wedding his favorite creatives – Ricardo Tisci on the dress, Vanessa Beecroft on the experience, and Andrea Bocelli – Kim’s favorite singer – singing Kim’s favorite song as she walked down the aisle. The first choice to capture one of the most special days in Kim and Kanye’s life: Annie Leibovitz.

Annie Leibovitz – the legendary photographer responsible for Kim and Kanye’s recent Vogue cover – is not known to shoot weddings. But Kanye West dreams big. He loves and respects Annie as a true artist and wanted to bring her eye for beauty to the imagery of the event. In his Cannes Lions panel with Steve Stoute and tech guru godfather Ben Horowitz, Kanye was referencing Annie as an example of how to merge culture and tech.

“Picture this,” said Kanye. “The most-liked Instagram photo of all time, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Oh, I’m sorry for dreaming out loud. Again.”

So, Kanye just wants to clear the air. He’s not mad…just disappointed.

Tamar Braxton Fires Stylist Over $40 Outfit

Published

Ya’ll already know Tamar Braxton is not the one to try. But her stylist must not have gotten the memo. Apparently he thought it was ok to belittle her for wearing a jumper from Forever 21 during a recent interview and she had to hand him his walking papers.

Braxton let her fans know what went down via her Instagram account and also encouraged women to be confident in whatever they wear.

“The stylist today tried to make me feel “less than” because he didn’t agree that I should wear @forever21..well.. I FIRED him because NO ONE should make you feel “less than” because you have on a $40 outfit!!,” she wrote.

“You are AMAZING and don’t let ANYONE bully you into spending what you have.. or NOT..,” she added. “It doesn’t make you ANY LESS FABULOUS!! You make the clothes!! Your SPIRIT makes you!! EMBRACE YOU!! YOU ARE PERFECT!! NO MATTER WHAT!!

Braxton rocked the City of Angels Camo jumpsuit and a pair of suede Christian Louboutin booties while appearing on Essence Live to promote her new (and final) studio album “Blue Bird Of Happiness”.

Honestly we liked the look and that she mixed high and low end labels so effortlessly. But thats just our two cents.
