Kanye West revealed on Tuesday that he spent most of his honeymoon trying to perfect the iconic picture of him kissing his new wife, Kim.
Kanye said the reason he spent four days editing that picture was due to the famous photographer, Annie Leibovitz pulling out of the ceremony at the last minute.
“Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that my girl put up… (it)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.”
But a source close to the famous photographer said she did not pull out of the ceremony, as she was never confirmed to photograph it in the first place.
But now both Annie and Kanye have released a statement revealing that there are no hard feelings between them both, and Kanye’s comments at Cannes were taken completely out of context.
“Kanye West’s comments about Annie Leibovitz while speaking at the 2014 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival have been taken out of context and sensationalized. 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.”
The statement went on to say that it was Kanye’s dream to have Annie photograph his wedding but it also revealed that Annie doesn’t usually photograph wedding ceremonies.
“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.”
Annie may have not taken the iconic shot of Mr. and Mrs. West kissing in front of a wall of flowers, but the picture has still managed to break Instagram records with having the most likes on a image to date.
