Kanye West Thinks Instagram Needs to Be Cleaned Up
|June 23, 2014 Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, KISS|
Kanye West believes he should redesign the wildly popular photo-sharing app.
While speaking at the 2014 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity this week, the rapper recalled speaking with Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom and asking, "Why don't you let us redo Instagram? Now, you know, Instagram is nice. It's nice looking—I'm not knocking it. But in general, everyone spends all of their time looking at their screens or their phones."
Although Kim Kardashian's man didn't offer a concrete solution, he suggested, "Just as a simple task, we could clean that up."
The rapper also spoke about how he spent four days adjusting the photo of Kimye's first kiss as a married couple.
"I'll tell you a little story about the kiss photo that my girl put up," North West's papa said before admitting that the reason "we worked on the photo so much" was because photographer Annie Leibovitz "pulled out of the wedding" the day before it took place. However, the groom still wanted his "wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz's photos.'"
"We sat there and worked on that photo for four days," he said. "Because the flowers were off-color and stuff like that."
"Can you image I'm 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,' or the idea that it's a Givenchy dress, and it's not about the name Givenchy, it's about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci—and how important Kim is to the Internet," he explained.
And in Kanye's eyes, his mission was accomplished.
"The fact that 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," he said.
