kanye1 How Dare They Ban Kanye Wests Album Cover In The U.S.!!!

Yes. [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm]’s album cover for his upcoming LP My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is banned.

We can’t show you the album cover because it’s a bit much, but you can check it out HERE.

Kanye tweeted this after finding out the news…

Yoooo they banned my album cover!!!!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 [lastfm]Nirvana[/lastfm] 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

I know that cover just blew yall minds … I wish yall could see how hard I’m smiling right now!!!

What do you think of the cover??? Too much???

    I dont think its too much — it is a effn cartoon !! It has parental advisory on it — they should just put one of those black plastic wrappers on it like they do the magazines! haha

    Yes. I don’t mind it at all, but being a parent of young children that really likes his songs I don’t think this is a good representation of his music. Parental advisory or not, if you’re walking through the music store, that’s a bit much for a child to walk up on unless that child is used to seeing dirty magazines or porno flicks. I still don’t think it should be banned from the US, just selective about where it’s sold.

    I think Kanye is a nut and he needs to lay on somebody’s couch SOON before he self-destructs. If he calls this album cover and his music art, he’s sadly mistaken. I’d use it to prop up a leaning coffee table.

    I see where hes comming from and dont think it should be banned but it is a little much

    I honestly dont think that there is anything wrong with the cover but it is a bit much. If u examine the cover closely it depicts a black man and a white woman. Now let a white artist create the EXACT same cover but reverse the images (white man and black woman) and let’s see if that cover gets banned also.

    I think its too much. Hes jus tryna make monsters and sex cool. He even said him self that he sold his soul to the devil. so what do expect from this clown. Any one that has jesus in their life even a little doesnt do the things this guy does.

    I am a huge Fan of Kayne West and I respect him as solely an artist, however his album cover is more than just a cartoon, for those educated minds out there, put it to work, I will not go into full detail about what I get out of it, but some of you should really know your history! There are more than enough representation and symbolism in this piece that a lot of you are even thinking about, why you think it’s only nudity and a cartoon, try to look deeper think outside the box, after all isn’t that why the Greats became the Greats because they dared to be different!
