Have you seen the new Kanye West album cover? Well, Kanye West is at it again, and this time he’s ranting about his new album cover being banned! Kanye took to his twitter account on Sunday to complain that his latest album cover has been banned.
“Yoooo they banned my album cover!!!!! Ima tweet in a few…,”
“Banned in the USA!!! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!,” West wrote.
And as soon as that tweet went out, he tweeted a picture of said album cover. Yeah, um, ok. I guess that’s just kinda…weird. Not sure that it’s really ‘ban worthy’ though. He went on still;
“In the 70s album covers had actual nudity…It’s so funny that people forget that…Everything has been so commercialized now,” West went on to say. “I know that cover just blew yall minds…I wish yall could see how hard I’m smiling right now!!!”
So really – are we getting all bent out of shape over nothing? Or should we worry about images like this on the shelves at the local Walmart where, let’s face it, lots of kids will be able to see it. Kanye responded with
“In all honesty…I really don’t be thinking about Walmart when I make my music or album covers #kanyeshrug!”,
”I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.”
Hmmm, is this really ‘art’ or another example of Kanye having a bit of a temper tantrum because he’s not getting his way? What do you think about the new album cover – should it really be banned in the USA?
