Kanye West, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

The cover of Kanye West's 2010 opus My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was a bizarre illustration by artist George Condo featuring a scowling Kanye West holding a bottle while being straddled by a naked, armless, winged female creature of some sort. West tweeted that some retailers had banned the cover, but a Wal-Mart spokesperson insisted that wasn't true. Later, a New Yorker article reported that Kanye had specifically sought an image that would be banned. Either way, alternate covers with tamer artwork were released as well.
