Kanye West Patches Things up with Annie Liebovitz

Kanye West retreated on his position regarding shutterbug Annie Liebovitz. He said that his comments that the media publicized so much were taken out of context and are thus meaningless. 

He had said that Annie left his wedding ceremony too early. Maybe it was because she was afraid of the very concept of celebrity.

“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,” West said during a press conference at 2014 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival. “I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity.”

The wedding kiss photo of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian is a real famous image. Kim posted it on her Instagram three weeks ago and the image became the most popular in history of the social networking site. This image has gotten over 2.3 million likes and 52,000+ comments. And West said that it was because Liebovitz did not come to shoot it.

However, the two have finally given a statement together to the press. The joint statement was released by West’s Def Jam label svp media and creative development Gabe Tesoriero on Thursday morning.

The joint statement read: “Kanye and Annie’s representatives were in negotiations for weeks that were not completed by the time of the wedding.”  

Kanye said that the only issue he had was that he was unable to cooperate with Annie in any matter at his wedding. However, it was made clear that there were no hard feelings between Kanye and Annie. 

“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,” said a representative for Leibovitz. “She would have loved to have taken their wedding portrait and was disappointed it didn’t happen.”

The reps of both parties had been in contact with each other and had not been able to finalize the plans for Kanye’s wedding photos. And while Annie would have been more than delighted to have shot a portrait picture of Kanye and Kim, she was never informed regarding the job order. 

“Annie would have been happy to do the portrait but she was never confirmed," said a representative for Leibovitz.

The fact of the matter was that Kanye wanted to have the time of his life on the occasion of his wedding with Kim. Everything had to be perfect. He wanted the best of the best. From the décor to the cake to the guest list, everything had to have a halo surrounding it. 

Thus he also wanted the best photographer to shoot his wedding portrait. But Annie was not into shooting wedding photos. She clearly said that was not her job and she was not interested either. 

Of course, that did not prevent Kanye from dreaming out loud that he wished Kim and him could have a lovely photo taken by Annie. Maybe, Kanye thought just like his Vogue cover shoot which was shot by Annie, his wedding portrait too could be covered by her. 

But Kanye was to learn that life has its limits and you don’t always get everything you want even if you happen to be a rapper celebrity who is marrying a reality TV star. He should have been a little more circumspect about his opinions before airing them in public. 

“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. Unbeknownst to Kanye, she was never confirmed. Kanye and Annie’s representatives were in negotiations for weeks that were not completed by the time of the wedding,” stated a representative for West.

While some people have thought that’s been the case since Azalea signed to T.I.’s imprint back in 2012 – where she released her Glory EP before signing to Island for her major label debut The New Classic – it didn’t receive much attention until Nicki Minaj may or may not have called out the rapper during this year’s BET Awards.
