Kanye West took part in a panel discussion in Cannes yesterday and obviously used the event as an opportunity to rant about the many, many things on his mind. From Samsung (baaaad) to the Internet (the new Rome appaz), the newlywed rapper covered a lot of ground. His main target though? Fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz.
Yeezus told the audience that Annie - who's previously shot Miley Cyrus, Ellie Goulding, Helen Mirren and Kim and Kanye themselves - pulled out of being official wedding photographer a day before the event because 'she was afraid of celebrity'.
'Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding. I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity,' he said before telling the crowd that he spent FOUR DAYS of his honeymoon perfecting that Instagram snap of him kissing Kim infront of the flower wall.
'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 said.
'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.'
Seems his hard work paid off though: with more than 1.93 million likes, and more than 35,000 comments, Kim and Kanye’s wedding photo is the most-liked image ever on Instagram. '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,' said Kanye.

Meanwhile self-proclaimed 'best dressed guest at the wedding' André Leon Talley has been oversharing some saucy details about the event. He chatted to Bravo about the happy couple's 'long' first kiss.
'It was extremely long, which is always a good sign,' said Andre. 'I would say there was probably tongue engagement. I think I'm looking forward to the next baby, which will probably be called South or South West.'
