Kanye West Album Cover Banned!

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

As Kanye West gears up to release his fifth studio album, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, the controversial rapper has come across a little erm, controversy. Ye took to his twitter yesterday to unveil the artwork for his highly anticipated new LP – which hits stores on November 22 – and also revealed the cover has been banned in the US…

The artwork is of a thick red frame, with a picture of a paint-like image in the centre, which seems to be of a nude Kanye and a fellow naked female in a sexually charged position. Both characters look like a mix between a human and an animal, with the male sporting what can only be described as a ‘strange’ face and the female sporting wings and a tail – well the album is called ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ after all.

An angry Kanye tweeted:  “Banned in the USA!!! They tried to play me fam! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!”

The controversial artwork was illustrated by artist George Condo.

Well it’s definitely dark and twisted, but I’m not too sure about beautiful though…

  2. Kanye is always looking for contraversies, it maybe good sometime but sometimes people might be put off even checking his album. So Kanye, you do not have to go over the top, you are a talented musician.
