Kanye West Talks My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Cover
by Brian Willett
Kanye West caused a big stir with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy – and not just because the album has earned countless five-star reviews (read Bloginity’s review right here). Kanye West also caused a big stir with the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album cover, which features some artistic nudity. But the rapper insists he didn’t choose the cover to cause a stir, but because it spoke to him, artistically.
“It definitely relates to everything I’ve been through, like burning to the ashes, and rebuilding, and becoming a better person,” West explained. “And then delivering better product.”
No doubt about that – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy finds a more mature Kanye West pushing the limits of his creative abilities; you can find out for yourself by downloading the album right here.
West also said that he related to the piece of art personally, and explained that he could see the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy cover as similar to something he’d have drawn as a child.
“I love characters in general, but just how colorful the bird is,” said West. “And just the design, it’s just something I would have picked or drawn as a 5-year-old.”
