Kanye’s banned album cover was deliberate ( From music-news.co.uk)


The artist who did Kanye West’s album cover admits it was deliberately concocted to be ‘banned’.

Before the release of the universally-praised My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Kanye West tweeted variants of the album cover, declaring that one was ‘banned’.

This is the notorious painting of a garish, bare-breasted angel astride a nude Kanye, although he never confirmed exactly who ‘banned’ it.

Now the artist, George Condo, has admitted to the New Yorker that West specifically asked for a version of the album cover that would likely be banned.

Condo said that when West requested a selection of artworks for the album and singles, he ensured one would be controversial enough to cause a ruckus.

Kanye West manufacturing controversy? We’re shocked and appalled, sir.
