Kanye West & Annie Leibovitz Release Joint Statement Regarding Wedding Photos!

Kanye West and famed photographer Annie Leibovitz have just released a joint statement about not teaming up for his wedding photos!

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,” the statement said. “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. Annie would have been happy to do the portrait but she was never confirmed.”

The statement added, “It was Kanye’s dream to bring together for the wedding his favorite creatives – Riccardo Tisci on the dress, Vanessa Beecroft on the experience, and Andrea BocelliKim’s favorite singer – singing Kim [Kardashian]’s favorite song as she walked down the aisle. 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.”

    Then why does he keep posting childish rants about his photos?

    Not sure why people accommodate this dude – I think he has serious mental health issues. He seems completely devoid of any real emotion or genuine feeling. He made clear that he was marrying a product, and everything about that was merely production.

    Only came here to comment. I read the first sentence and quit. Why did I quit? Because I don’t care and im sure the majority of people who read that don’t care. Kanye MO is to make something out of nothing. Just like I made this comment about this post about a joint statement..

    Kanye just needs to stop talking. Every time he opens his mouth recently he makes a fool of himself.

    So true. They are just everywhere, I have never seen anything like it. Every damn day.
    They only way we will get rid of them, is to stop watching their reality shows, stop buying their cheap @ss products, stop clicking on threads about them.

    LOL love that he basically decided Kim’s wedding dress. This was Kanye’s day…not Kim’s. Kanye is a trip and needs to get over himself, but furthermore, he needs to stop inflating Kim’s head too because the sun does not rise nor fall with either of them. Being the “No. 1 liked photo” or the “No.1 person on Instagram” are not exactly top accomplishments lol. You’d think the fact that the wedding was a success, that he’s in the position to afford this wedding, that his baby, his wife, the rest of their family and himself are all healthy, happy and together would have been the most important details to him…but no, it was all about the superficial.

    sounds like she was going to sue him for his comments or something.
    this is the only reason they would have to make a comment like this.

    @#13 – Now it’s time to post your photo so we can all judge what you look like, ok?? And believe me – Annie isn’t jealous of Kim. Annie is an educated and talented woman who actually works for a living as opposed to Kim who spends her days and nights thinking of ways to keep herself in the media headlines for doing absolutely nothing of value for anyone but herself.

    @guest 2: Why are you lapping it up then? You take the time to read and then comment. Seems strange.
