Kanye West is furious with celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz because she ditched a gig as his wedding photographer one day before his wedding. West claims that Leibovitz backed out because “She was afraid of celebrity,” which makes no sense since she’s a celebrity photographer.
The rapper said he spent four days working on what’s now the most liked image ever on Instagram: an image of he and his wife Kim Kardashian kissing at the altar in Florence in front of a wall of roses.
“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.”
That handwork paid off. Kim and Kanye’s wedding photo has more than 1.93 million likes, and more than 35,000 comments.
