If things weren’t interesting enough…
Last Friday (May 25), Pusha T released a brand new album titled Daytona which included some controversial cover art. The artwork for the cover is a photo of an alleged hotel bathroom Whitney Houston once used that was full of drugs and drug paraphanelia.
Kanye West allegedly paid $85,000 to use the photo, and Houston’s former husband Bobby Brown and is not happy at all about it.
During an interview with Rolling Stone, revealed how he really felt about the usage.
“That’s really disgusting that he would do that,” Brown said. “That’s in really bad taste. Something should happen to Kanye. He’s already crazy. I knew that when I first met him. Now he’s pushing the bar a little bit. He needs somebody to slap him up or something. And I’m just the person to do it.”
The Whitney Houston estate was also not very pleased about its usage as they expressed to Entertainment Tonight.
In an exclusive statement to ET’s Kevin Frazier, the estate of the late singer says they are “extremely disappointed in Kanye’s choice” to use a photo of Houston’s drug-filled bathroom as the cover of Pusha T’s new album, DAYTONA, which dropped last Friday.
“Even in Whitney’s death, we see that no one is exempt from the harsh realities of the world,” the statement continues.
No rebuttal from Kanye West as of yet.
