Kanye West Says Wedding Photo Comments Were ‘Sensationalized’

Yeezy's comments about photographer Annie Leibovitz were 'taken out of context,' he says.

Kanye West feels no ill will toward photographer Annie Leibovitz, according to a joint statement released by the two on Thursday (June 19).

The explanation comes just days after Yeezy, during a panel discussion at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, commented on Leibovitz’s role — or, more specifically, her lack of a role — in what became the most-liked Instagram photo of all-time, capturing a kiss between newlyweds Kanye and Kim Kardashian.

“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,” ’Ye said earlier this week, according to the Los Angeles Times. “I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity.”
