“Yoooo they banned my album cover!!!!!,” West tweeted this past Sunday.
The image of an apparent sex scene was obviously the cause of Kanye West’s album cover for his new album Fantasy being banned from Walmart, but what does Kanye do once again? Correct! The rapper once again took to Twitter to vent, going on later to tweet “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,” 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!!!”
“In all honesty… I really don’t be thinking about Walmart when I make my music or album covers #kanyeshrug!”, the loquacious Grammy winner ranted on. “I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.”
Kanye, it’s Walmart. It’s understandable that the company doesn’t want five year olds leaving the entertainment section with that image in their heads…but really, after the Taylor Swift apology, we all thought the constant ‘angry and apologetic’ Twittering rants were over.
