Kim Kardashian is apparently the “most important person on the internet”

Half the time, I don’t even know what it is that’s coming out of Kanye West‘s mouth. It’s just a bunch of bullshit gibberish that means nothing and yet still somehow manages to shock and offend people. His latest foray into insanity is his revelation at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on Monday was claiming that a) Annie Leibovitz is “scared of celebrity”, b) that Kim Kardashian is the most important person on the Internet and c) that she was distraught over how the flower wall behind them in their wedding photo was all the wrong colour or whatever the fuck.

From The New York Post:

“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.

“It was a long time,” he added — drawing laughs from the audience, before later adding, “Why did Annie Leibovitz pull out one day before the wedding?”

I’ve never liked Annie Leibovitz more, to be honest. Also, she’s made a living out of shooting celebs, so… what Kanye is saying makes literally zero sense. Maybe she just didn’t want to be part of your bullshit spectacle?

  • Pulling out 3 days before a wedding is ridiculous. Even normal people would be ticked off at a photographer for pulling that. Annie should have turned them down initially or cancelled farther ahead of time. Kanye is predictably a foot in mouth type of guy. Does Annie need publicity? Is that why she did this? It’s so unprofessional of her to do that!

  • I get what he’s saying, he’s just being honest about the PR machine. When you live off your likeliness, such as Kim K, you need to maximise views and impact to turn it into revenue. The most-liked photo on Instagram, which is a social network used by millions, turns into real money for Kim K and Kanye. We may like it more or less, but he’s being honest about how it works. You need the best photo you can get, and if you live off that, there’s no coming back after a bad photo. Also, I would be pissed off too if my wedding photographer pulled out three days before the wedding, whether I was super rich or not. Super unprofessional indeed.

  • Anybody who agrees with this guy is also fucking insane. Why would you give this lunatic the benefit of the doubt or take what he is saying seriously? Super unprofessional? This turkey is the most unprofessional egomaniac that exists on this planet right now.

  • this man is DILLUSIONAL and has no idea how retarded and ignorant and ghetto and NACISSTIC he is. He and the KarDASH family are attention desperate (with nothing important to do but “BE SEEN” in crazy over the top clothes. It’s so so funny and how embarrasing for them.

    Sad sad and also great comical relief in this world.
    He’s a moron and Kim world revolves around twittering pics of her butt. It’s soooo sad

  • He’s a JOKE! and has no idea how dumb and desperate he sounds. All the words he says MAKE no sense..
    does this man have dementia????
