“I’ll tell you a little story about the Kiss photo that my girl put up.
In case you didn’t know, I recently became the third husband of Kim Kardashian, Duchess of Instagram. Obviously, we did it before we got married, and that’s why we’re now married. In case you’re one of the 6,999,984,573,075 people who don’t follow Kim on Instagram, our wedding photo just became the most liked photo on IG ever with over 2.3 million likes. That’s a lot of likes, but it also means that over 12 million of Kim’s followers didn’t “like” it. That’s not loyalty. Kim deserves better.
She was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much because Annie Leibovitz pulled out of the wedding, because I think she was scared of the idea of celebrity.
Annie Leibovitz has been around celebrities for a very long time and for some reason, taking the photo of the best rapper/ humanitarian/ Jesus love alive/ ever, and the Armenian with the least amount of body hair, intimidated her. She’s photographed celebrities before, it should seem normal that I asked her to wear leather jogging pants, to speak only in a French accent and take wedding photos from the ceiling a la Tobey Macguire in Spiderman.
But because Annie pulled out, I was like ‘I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz’s photos’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for four days – because the flowers were off-colour and stuff like that.”
Granted, the first 3 days and 20 hours were spent showing Kim how to turn on her MacBook. Kim also learned the photo starts with a “ph” and not “f”, after we had already spent a good 2 hours looking for Photoshop in the F Section. After we finally figured out Photoshop, we realized it would be way easier to just use X Pro II on IG because it enhanced the flower color and was way easier than this Photoshop thing. We also enhanced the picture using sharpen, because I’m a huge fan of it.
