Kanye West is Upset with Annie Leibovitz

BREAKING: Kanye West is upset. Again. According to Page Six, West’s latest beef is with Annie Leibovitz. West told a crowd at the Cannes Lions Festival that his wedding shot with Kim Kardashian took four days to produce because Leibovitz pulled out of his wedding the day prior to the event.

According to West, Leibovitz dropped out because “She was afraid of celebrity.” Now, this is an odd thing to think — considering all Leibovitz does is work with celebrities — but hey, maybe West was right. Whatever the reason was, we do agree with West that it was a shitty thing for Leibovitz to do.

West said that because Leibovitz cut out of their plans, he spent time during his honeymoon perfecting the photo. “Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that my girl put up,” explained West. “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.”

Four days seems insane — perhaps (maybe!) an exaggeration? But we’re buying it. West is probably the only celebrity that is so self-involved that he’d spend that long altering a picture of himself.

West added that in the end, everything worked out because the picture is so now the most popular photo ever on Instagram. He described it as “a win for what the mission is, which is raising the palette.”

Consider your palettes raised. Whether you like it or not.
