You Can Breathe Easy Now – Kanye Has Finally Joined Instagram


The moment the world has been waiting for finally happened. Kanye West has joined Instagram (@kanyewest).

Excited? Not so fast: the 39-year-old rapper has uploaded just one picture so far. The photo (see above) is some kind of futuristic looking car next to a futuristic building taken at dusk.

In March, Kanye revealed in a series of tweets that he was considering joining Instagram.

He wrote: “My tweets are a form of contemporary art only compromised by people trying to tell me what to tweet and not to tweet…

“on another note… I was thinking about getting an Instagram but only on one condition….

“no one can ask me or try to tell me what to Instagram… It’s my art… (sic).”

It’s unclear how he will be posting his pictures though as Kanye recently admitted he had gotten rid of his phone as it hinders his creativity.

He tweeted: “I got rid of my phone so I can have air to create.”

Kanye amassed 406,000 followers in the hours after he joined Instagram and now is up to 1.2 million. And there’s still only one photo on his account.

Kanye has a long way to go before he reaches his wife Kim Kardashian West, who has over 82 million fans. Kim, 35, often posts selfies on the app and has many to choose from as she recently took 6,000 selfies on a holiday in Mexico.

The television personality was never without her phone during her four-day holiday in the resort of Punta Mita last month, and she has revealed that she used the device to take a staggering 1,500 snaps of herself every day.

The mom-of-two – whose daughter North, three, and nine-month-old son Saint joined her on her trip – made the announcement of her excessive picture taking on her half-sister Kendall Jenner’s app in a post called: “Kim-Digits: The Breakdown of My Mexico Vacation.”

The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star also revealed that she wore nine different bikinis on her holiday, but didn’t spend much time in the sun as she was “busy doing photo shoots” or it was “overcast”.

She did, however, reveal that she managed to spend four hours on the beach with her two children and drank 10 watermelon smoothies with her daughter.
