Kimye Wedding Pics Took Four Days to Perfect… For Instagram?
File this one under "We Should Have Seen That Coming."
At a discussion called Technology, Culture, and Consumer Adoption: Learning to Read the Cultural Landscape at the Cannes Lions Festival on Tuesday night, Kanye West explained that it took a staggering FOUR DAYS to make his wedding pics with new wife Kim Kardashian "good enough for Instagram."
That's right. Four days. Just make them worthy, by Kimye standards, of Instagram. Apparently, the implication in the popular photo-sharing site's name is lost on the couple.
Music-News.com quotes West:
Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who's the number one person on Instagram, 'We need to work on the colour of the flower wall?' Or the idea that it's how important Kim is to the internet. And the fact the number one most-liked photo [on Instagram] has a kind of aesthetic was a win for what the mission is, which is raising the palette.
West also hinted at his own "genius" during the same discussion. But really... are we surprised?
