Walmart has apparently banned Kanye West‘s new CD over seXXXy monster cover art. “Yooooo they banned my album cover!” Kanye whined on Twitter last night. “So Nirvana can have a naked human being on the cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings.”*** Kanye, just like you I am shocked! An album titled Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with a bare nipple on the cover was banned from Walmart? You don’t say! Who could have foreseen that?
(***Um, correct me if my Nirvana history is wrong, but didn’t the band eventually cover up the baby’s penis on the Nevermind cover because Kurt Cobain really wanted to reach kids in places where Walmart and Kmart are the only places to buy music?)
