Even Kanye Can’t Pitch to Vogue

We know how tough it can be to score press placements for your clients—especially when they have their hearts set on a feature in nose-in-the-air publications like Vogue.

Like every good PR pro, Kanye West knows that his client…err, his newborn daughter, North, should only get the very best publicity. He won’t have any of that “sure you can take ‘intimate’ pictures of me and my infant for $20 million” nonsense.

But even the reigning champion of completely unearned media mentions can’t seem to get Anna Wintour to put his kid on the cover of her magazine, despite the fact that his latest album drew more influence from Versace’s 2014 collection than Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt.

RadarOnline writes that Wintour is somehow “nonpulsed” about the prospect of featuring a little West on her cover even after Kanye “compiled the latest … statistics” demonstrating that reality stars still sell magazines. Two things we learned from that last sentence: Kanye knows how to create a spreadsheet with scissors and glue and RadarOnline’s editorial staff doesn’t trust the auto-correct feature.

Thanks to FishbowlNY for making us feel a little smarter today.
