Kanye West is fired up after learning Walmart wouldn’t sell his upcoming album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ with the current album cover. Kanye told his Twitter followers (@kanyewest):
Yoooo they banned my album cover!!!!! Ima tweet it in a few…
Banned in the USA!!! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix! http://twitpic.com/2ykxjk
In the 70s album covers had actual nudity… It’s so funny that people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now.
I know that cover just blew y’all minds … I wish y’all could see how hard I’m smiling right now!!!
In all honesty … I really don’t be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers #Kanyeshrug!
I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.
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
