Kanye West Banned Artwork Cover: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Looks like Taylor Swift wasn’t available for another ‘Kanye Controversy” so he had to come up with his own solo project.

“Yooooo they banned my album cover!!!” the rapper tweeted last night.

Shocker. Have you seen the cover? Don’t worry, you don’t have to Google that far to get to it; Kanye West posted the picture, so it’s everywhere anyway.

Now why would a cover with an evil-looking Kanye wannabe, being straddled by a naked woman with white wings, a tail and sharp teeth be banned? Perhaps, like one viewer commented, “If my kid saw this on the shelves he’d be all, Mommy, why is that scary monster humping that man while he drinks a 7Up?”

Come on Kanye, are you that desperate for attention. “Banned in the USA!!” “They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix… In the 70s album covers had actual nudity It’s so funny that people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now… So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings.”

Yes you read right. He’s comparing his naked porn monster woman to the naked baby on the cover of Nirvana’s Nevermind album. Priceless.

According to an anonymous Def Jam source, his label ‘strongly urged’ him not to use the image, but of course Kanye had the final say and got his way. I mean, how else do you think he’d drum up some extra hype for the album’s release on Nov. 22nd? The naked pictures of him floating around the web weren’t obviously good enough to generate much of a buzz, so I guess this is “Plan B.’

Now Walmart has banned the cover and Kanye is trying to make it look like a ‘fight the power’ struggle to control his artistic integrity. “In all honesty … I really don’t be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers #Kanyeshrug!” he said. “I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.”

Um, I’m thinking Walmart isn’t trying to kill your creativity Kanye. Seriously.
