Morrissey Disses Bowie, Gets With Rick Astley Instead

In a busy Morrissey-filled week, sometimes important Morrissey Watch news items slip through the cracks. Like Morrissey’s burgeoning feud with David Bowie. It seems Bowie wasn’t too keen on Mozzer using a previously unreleased photograph of the two of them for the cover of the reissue of “Last of the International Playboys.” We’re sure Morrissey is writing a passel of scathing songs about it, and in the meantime, The Boy With A Thorn In His Side created an alternative album cover. This one features Moz-sticks posing with unlikely friend Rick Astley. May the never gonna give up each other’s deep affection. [Pitchfork]

Lil’ Kim Chops Off Nicki Minaj’s Head On New Album Cover

Nicki Minaj has repeatedly said she doesn’t understand how the beef between her and Lil’ Kim started. (“You see Gaga, you see Madonna—but Madonna never hated on Gaga,” she said. “Why in the black community we gotta hate on each other instead of saying ‘Thank you for showing me love, thank you for keeping my name alive?’”) Well, Lil’ Kim just took the rivalry to the next level. She not only titled her new mixtape Black Friday—Nicki’s album is Pink Friday—but on the cover, she shows Nicki with her head severed. Nicki’s pink head lays on the floor a few feet away and blood is splattered everywhere. Kim, of course, is holding a bloody sword. What do you think—okay or too much? [PopEater, MTV] Keep reading »

WTF Is Up With Chris Brown’s New Album Cover?

If Chris Brown was hoping for a career comeback after he beat the crap out of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, the hot mess that is the just-revealed art for his upcoming album, Graffiti, is not going to help. Why is he holding a guitar? He doesn’t play! Is he on a spaceship? Is that a moon? Why are his pants so tight? Who are those creatures in the bottom corner? And why is he going to mace them with a can of spray paint? PopEater goes into further detail about the five awesomely ridiculous things about it. Somewhere, Adam Lambert is feeling really great right now. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Adam Lambert’s Ultra Manly Album Cover

When I saw this album cover, before my first cup of coffee for the day, I thought this was Pink going through a blue period. But nope, it’s the cover for Adam Lambert‘s first album, For Your Entertainment. Folks on the interwebs are calling it “glamtastic,” but I think it’s a few steps beyond that—homedude got in a time machine, traveled back to the ’80s, went to the mall for a Glamour Shot, and paid extra for the “extreme airbrushing” package. Do you like this cover, or think it’s way over the top? Keep reading »

The Top 50 Dirtiest Album Covers Bring Back Memories

I totally love Gigwise’s list of the Top 50 Dirtiest Album Covers. There was the stuff that automatically to mind, like The Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers, 2 Live Crew’s As Nasty As They Wanna Be, and The Black Crowes’ Amorica but then the list also had some we totally forgot about. RATT’s Invasion Of Your Privacy! Prince’s Lovesexy! Bob Geldof’s Sex, Age & Death! But my personal favorite has to be Lords Of Acid’s Crab Louse, an album seemingly named after pubic lice.
