Look, we all know Kanye West is full of wisdom [1]. But his latest quotes about Instagram fandom might just be his best yet. For one, he just revealed that he and Kim spent four days editing one wedding [2] photo for Instagram.

Speaking at a panel [3] at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, he told the tragic tale of how famed photographer Annie Leibovitz decided not to shoot their crazy elaborate wedding [4] just one day before the event.

You'd think that would bring them down, wouldn't it? Ha!

"Because Annie pulled out, I was like, 'OK, I still want my wedding [5] 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."


Wait, did you get that? Kim and Kanye's secret to posting the most popular photo ever [6] on Instagram with nearly 2.3 million likes:

Sit there for four days editing the photo.

He went on . . . "Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who's the number one 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.

"And the fact the number one most-liked photo [on Instagram] has a kind of aesthetic was a win for what the mission is, which is raising the palette."

Maybe they used the new Instagram features [7] to get those flower colors juuust right.
