Kanye West is going to be including five album covers in his new album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” that will drop on November 22, reports MTV. The first album cover Kanye wanted was deemed too racy. Family oriented stores would refuse to sell it.
Thus the record label Def Jam convinced Kanye to change the cover. The NY Daily News reports that Kanye tweeted on Twitter “They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix.!” He also joked “In response to the reaction of my album cover, I’m deeply worried if I haven’t offended everybody.”
Did George Condo Create Kanye West’s 5 Album Covers?
No word yet if they new covers were created by same artist who created the first cover, George Condo. Will the new covers create new controversy? Kanye does seem fond of riling up the public and getting his name all over the new.
Condo has an intriguing artistic style. He uses lots of deep exotic colors and a surreal style that creates a vivid fantasy scenario.
Kanye West: Diamond Teeth
Kanye West claims he has replaced his bottom row of teeth with diamonds. He told Ellen DeGeneres “I guess there’s just certain things that rock stars are supposed to do,” reports the Daily Mail.
That’s a lot of diamond bling bling on display. Let’s hope a criminal doesn’t knock Kanye out to retrieve the teeth. Is this display of ostentation repulsive in these tough economic times or is Kanye just enjoying his success?
Since his debacle involving Taylor Swift at the MTV awards, Kanye spent some time away from Los Angeles to relax and work on music. He lived in Japan and Rome and then spent time in Hawaii.
And now he is back in LA with diamond teeth. Will this start a new trend? Perhaps diamond earrings are out and the style big wigs of the music world will be flaunting diamond teeth.
Kanye West: Will Not Give Up on Life
Kanye also talked to Ellen DeGeneres about feeling suicidal in the past. He told her “There were times that I contemplated suicide. I will not give up on life again,” reports CWD. And now Kanye West is moving on with his life. He has had time to mourn the loss of his mother. He has recharged his creativity.
It will be fascinating to watch the future of Kanye West. His career sparks controversy, drama and some great tunes too.
