‘He Did Nothing Of The Sort:’ Anna Wintour Says Kanye Didn’t Beg For Vogue Cover
Kanye has been on a campaign to get his fiancée, Kim Kardashian, on the cover of Vogue for as long as we can remember. And as we previously reported today, he can now rest because his dream has finally come true. Of course, we all know how bad Kanye wanted that Vogue cover, so it’s not surprising that rumors about him begging the fashion magazine’s EIC, Anna Wintour, for the cover are resurfacing. However, according to Daily Mail, Anna says those rumors are completely false.
“Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it,” Anna writes in the issue’s Letter From The Editor. “I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)”
Though she admits that the gossip probably makes the issue more enjoyable for the reader, she affirms that Kanye did not beg for the cover.
“As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.”
Her letter continues:
“There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”
And there you have it!
