Hey Kimye? Get Over Yourselves!

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian need to take a seat instead of dissing Annie Leibovitz.


Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are so obsessed with themselves and the infamous Kimye wedding that now they're dissing legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz. Why? Leibovitz dropped out of their nuptials, leaving the kouple to Photoshop shots themselves ... for Instagram.

Dude, seriously?

West ranted in Cannes, "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."

He continued, "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."

Kardashian and West had to spend four hours Photoshopping a picture. For Instagram. For what it's worth, I hear the Holocaust was also pretty inconvenient.

Obviously, egomaniacs like Kimye will think that their wedding is the be-all, end-all of celebrity weddings. (In fact, Kardashian likely thought so of her second wedding to Kris Humphries, to whom she was infamously married for a whopping 72 days, so perhaps West shouldn't get so comfortable.)

But unfortunately, the world just doesn't care as much as they do. Seriously. It takes very little effort to "like" a photo on Instagram and much more to sit through an entire episode of K.K.'s insipid reality show and to plunk down cash for Yeezus, and it shows: They may have all the Instagram fans on Earth, but their actual numbers in terms of television ratings and album sales are dwindling.

If West and Kardashian's worst problem is having to Photoshop their wedding picture for Instagram four days later -- which, by the way, should technically be a "#latergram," but whatever -- it's safe to assume everyone on the planet wouldn't mind trading places with these space cadets. The only way they could get more obnoxious is if they Instagrammed photos checking themselves for polyps, because guess where their heads are?
