Kanye paid $85000 to use 'Whitney Houston drug' photo

Share

Kanye West dropped $85,000 on a photo of Whitney Houston's drug-strewn bathroom to use as an album cover.

Just last month, Kanye also made headlines when he revealed on Twitter that his album cover may include a picture of the plastic surgeon who performed his late mom's final surgery.

The image West bought the rights to was secretly taken in Houston's Atlanta mansion in 2006 after an alleged drug binge. You can see the room covered in what looks like drug paraphernalia and bottles of alcohol.

Pusha also explained that using the picture was a last minute idea, and it cost West a whopping $85,000 out of his own pocket for licensing.

"1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller-ID. Well MAGA hats let me slide like a drive through", he rapped. And as for the latter, Pusha has clearly seen some shit in his life so I don't think a 71-year-old pile of cholesterol and skin is gonna get to him.

"Looking at that cover, I'm sure whoever frequents that bathroom or area knew whatever they wanted to find and knew where it was". "[But] I absolutely did not want to pay for it". And I like this other artwork. "I'm really proud of what we put together. We picked what we picked, it's here, it's ready"'. I said, 'Hey, I don't want to pay for that. Another urged the rapper to "change the cover before you release the album" while a third wrote: "This is disgusting". His online outbursts led people to question if he was of sound mind, and his wife Kim responded by insisting her husband wasn't mentally ill.

One of the most absolute bold and attention attracting tracks on all of DAYTONA is without a doubt Pusha T's collab with Kanye, "What Would Meek Do?". - Edashwhy (@edashwhy) May 24, 2018Its not provocative or thought provoking, it's just really bad taste, I mean what was Whitney to him?
