(Newser) – Kanye West just wants a little, tiny, eensy-beensy favor from Anna Wintour: for her to put his fiance on the cover of Vogue. He so badly wants Kim Kardashian to grace the cover that he recently got editor Wintour and the magazine's creative director, Grace Coddington, seats to his Tuesday night concert at the Barclays Center, Page Six reports. Of course, they had to sit with Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner, so we're not sure how great of a bribe that was. Amusingly, Page Six notes that Wintour wore her dark sunglasses the entire time.

West recently bemoaned the fact that Michelle Obama has been on two Vogue covers even though Kardashian is "more relevant to fashion." And that's not his only recent feud: He slammed Zappos on Bret Easton Ellis' podcast Monday ("I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he's trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he sells all this s--- product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling s--- product.") Zappos responded yesterday, the Wire reports—by listing a so-called "S--- Product," aka a toilet plunger, for sale. (Read more Kanye West stories.)
