Kanye West wants to redesign Instagram. Not entirely, just tweak it a bit. “Why don’t you let us redo Instagram,” he asked the social media photo sharing destination’s CEO during the 2014 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. “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. Just a simple task, we could clean that up.” Presumably, the “we” West is referring to is he and his wife, Kim whose wedding photo is the most liked Instagram of all time. Quite the feat, considering that the couple spent four days editing it during their honeymoon. [E! Online]
