Kanye West is Kurt Cobain Now

October 18th, 2010 // 77 Comments

Kanye West‘s upcoming album Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy has officially been banned from Wal-Mart thanks to the appearance of abstract art nipple, the true vessel of Satan. But don’t let me be the one to tell you. Let’s hear it directly from Kanye – in spectacular crazy-vision. Via Twitter:

- 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 yall minds … I wish yall 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

I’m sorry. Did I miss the memo where Kanye announced he’s going to start attaching his name to random actions essentially creating his own Kanyelanguage? Because that seems like something I should’ve been made aware of before I got Superficialdickedintheye with my pants down.

(It’s not as laughably egotistical when I do it, is it? Kanyedammit.)

NOTE: Album cover is slightly NSFW.

    He has horrible grammar.

    • Burt

      He’s trying hard to make us forget that he grew up in an upper middle-class household, raised by a mother who was an English professor.

    • You can find me on Facebook

      Sadly, the only people that would buy this shit are the ones that shop at Walmart..BAD marketing strategy Ray Walton..

    • More

      All the hate talk don’t matter, he is about to rack up another cool million.
      More publicity behind his name will make more money for his bank acct.

    oh. i thought he killed himself.

    • I was hoping that’s what the title meant too.

    • I was hoping it meant Courtney Love killed him. And they put her trashy ass behind bars for it this time. Dammit!!

      On a side note, how come TI is back in jail for violation of probation and Lindsay Lohan got away with essentially pooping on the judge’s favorite nephew?? Not that I am a fan of either one, but isn’t that interesting?

    • lol

      Same here, But when I scroll down and saw the picture i was like, Not likely, Besides Fish has a dark sense of humor but He wouldnt have name the title that, I really thought at first Kanye was screwing Courtney love

  7. allmyrivals

    He’s Kurt now? Well good ………does that mean he’s going to kill himself soon? Thanks fucking god.

  8. Ash Bones

    albums are dead anyway

  9. icu

    Damn! I thought Courtney Love did a good thing and killed this worthless motherfucker. Nope! He’s just banned from walfart.

  10. Brooke

    Well, it is the act of a thing and another thing with a nipple having sex, I think… so I kind of don’t blame Wal-Mart for using that as their excuse. It’s a pretty fugly cover.

    I love how one of his followers is apparently insane, though: “Im still getting this tatted regardless of the bann..i have all 5 tatts of YE(Your) albums so far. Not stoping now for the U.S.”

    Someone tattooed his albums onto their body? Kanye has put out five albums???

    • joey

      “YE” is kanye’s nickname not “your”
      “YE” as in kanYE
      its among an assortment of short form that fans call him
      no offence
      just didn’t want YE(you) using the wrong insult

    I don’t know much about art, but I know that looks like it was done by an 8 year old schizo huffing paint! (That means it sucks).
    I guess in this case the artwork matches the “art” in the album: SHIT.

  23. sasha

    My true creativity? You mean create a minor scandal so everyone will notice an album that would otherwise be ignored?

    Yo, Kany, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you release your album, but Nirvana had one of the best album covers of all time.

    • chelsea

      i love you

    • Guy Rossi

      You’re so dumb!! I Ibet you also think Smells like Teen spirt is the best song and video ever. I bet you are either 18 and dumb or 40 and dumb. Just cause Cobain died it doesn’t make him a music saint

      • anon

        or just being sarcastic?

      • elence

        I bet Arska is 18 :D But i believe hi is joking, i bet he doesn’t even knows whats on the nirvana cover
        and yes Nirvana sucks! The doors forever! :)
        About the cover-let Kanye be Kanye!

  25. Yo, Kany, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you release your album, but Nirvana had one of the best album covers of all time.

    Naked human being? This: http://www.solarnavigator.net/music/music_images/Nirvana_In_Utero_album_cover.jpg ? There’s no nipple there Kayne. You know the rules jackass. Ironically that same album had a song called Rape Me changed to Waif Me only on the Wal-Mart copies.

    WTF? As a designer and artist, all I can say is what a piece of crap. It is SO crappy, it just pisses me off. In a see red sort of way. WTF?

  28. The Observer

    So the album cover is him with Amy Winehouse humping his leg,..what’s the big deal?

    R-tard, Illiterate, no talent, fish dick sucking, media whore. So few people are more deserving of a Crystal Drain-O milkshake.

    Seriously–is that his rebuttal? Please don’t ever try to imagine Kanye as being any sort of intellectual–Nirvana can have a naked human being on it’s cover–what a tool. He has a black monster fucking a white monster–it’s not so much that nipple–Nirvana had a cute naked baby..does he really need this spelled out for him or is he being profoundly deep again?

    Maybe it’s because they don’t like your ignorant, arrogant ass Kenya, or Kenye, or Kanya, or whatever the fuck your retarded name is… and it’s not the cover of your earbleed inducing “music” ( I use the term music loosely) that is causing the problem. You see, that’s probably their polite way to keep your produced shit off the shelves. You see, SOME people have coothe and dignity.

  31. lol

    That has to be THE GULIEST anything I have seen, Piece or art? album cover, What ever it is is the Freaking Ugliest thing I have ever seen, I am glad they banned it, because that means I don’t have to look at it? WHO the hell painted that? I bet a million it was Kanye
    Ugly UGLY UGLY

    Gay Fish yo

  32. Ksurfiws

    listening to his album will be like Ear Rape

  33. jenn

    nirvana had a naked baby. naked babies arnt sexual, naked people riding other naked people can probably be taken sexual. what a fucking douche.

    • jenn

      plus it was actual art on that cover, it makes you think. his was just a creepy drawing of his gf on top of him.

    FUCKIT! When I saw the Kurt Cobain reference I figured Kuntye did the music world a favor and put his head into a blender and pushed puree. Do not ever, ever get me that excited and then jerk me off like that. Unless there is dinner involved. Fucker.

  37. he's GAY

    Has Kanye come out of the closet yet?

  38. joke

    Thank God I don’t listen to his music, I would hate to buy an album with a cover that disgusting, that is one fugly drawing, that this is horrible,

    I don’t get this Moron, he says that He Doesnt Care and that He doesnt think of Walmart when making music, like Who gives a fuck attitude, Yet he is winning like a bitch that the Album is banned,
    WTF is his deal

  39. joe blow

    Do you need to borrow my 12, negro?

    No birdshot for you either. Nothing but the best buckshot for you.

  40. See Alice

    Looks like he still hates white people ……

    Um. Does he really think the only wrong with that cover is the nipple.

    Fuck kanye west, but seriously, please burn your local wal-mart to the ground, preferably during busy hours.

  43. Dhruv

    Wow, sometimes it gets annoying when you people don’t see the message people try to send, and get picky on stupid stuff, like the Kanyeshrug thing. He’s talking about censorship, and how commercialism has ruined creativity…and if you couldn’t figure that out – you don’t deserve to insult anybody or listen to any music.

    Haa ha ha. ha ha ha.heyheyhey. I cannot point out the obvious because I am white as a ghost but this looks like he drew it himself and thought it was a “good” thing. Nice to see he is trying to keep his lips closed recently.

  45. Haha

    Kill yourself, mope

    What a fucking loser. He gives blacks a bad name…

    He is obviously letting it slip that the only reason he is famous is because he made a deal with the devil and that deal was sealed when he banged a succubus who implanted his “creativity” into him.
