Kanye West wants to debut his baby in style. The rapper reportedly wants to publish the first photos of North West on the cover of Vogue magazine.
Although West is keen to introduce his and Kim Kardashian’s daughter to the world through the publication, editor-in-chief Anna Wintour doesn’t share his enthusiasm. Reports suggest she isn’t exactly thrilled with putting North West on the cover.
“Kanye is determined to make sure baby North isn’t photographed by paparazzi then splashed across the world. He knows what he wants — a professional photographer and the cover of Vogue — nothing else,” an anonymous source recently told Radar Online.
The insider added, “But clearly, trying to persuade Anna is going to be an uphill battle.”
Other sources revealed that Anna Wintour isn’t a fan of putting reality television stars on the cover of her acclaimed magazine. However, this hasn’t stopped Kanye West from stating his case. The rapper is doing a little sales research in order to change her mind.
“He’s compiled the latest magazine statistics that show reality stars on the covers of fashion publications — especially Kim — can make sales go through the roof,” the insider said.
Wintour’s passion for keeping reality TV types out of Vogue magazine is the stuff of legend. Editors reportedly cut Kim Kardashian out of photographs taken at this year’s MET gala in New York City. However, none of this really seems to matter much to Kanye in the long run.
The rapper has already contacted such noted photographers as Annie Leibovitz and Mario Testino to photograph his family. Insiders close to West claim that he’s been hitting the gym extra hard to get ready for the photo shoot. The guy apparently doesn’t know how to deal with rejection.
