Kanye Did Not Whine or Bully His Way on to Vogue, Says Anna Wintour

Responding to gleeful internet speculation that Kanye West whined his way on to the cover of Vogue, Anna Wintour explained (with flawless imperiousness) that it was "entirely our idea" and she can NOT BE BULLIED. So don't get any ideas.

"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," Wintour, 64, wrote. "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?)"

"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 fiancee on Vogue's cover. He did nothing of the sort," she explained. "The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn't true."
