Kanye West Uses Picture of Whitney Houston's Drug Strewn Bathroom for Album Cover Artwork


Back in 2006 Bobby Brown's sister Tina sold pictures to a British tabloid that she claimed were from the bathroom of Whitney Houston's drug den [click here if you missed that].

Kanye West just licensed the pictures for Pusha T's new album cover...

Pusha T spilled the tea in an interview with Angie Martinez,
“1 a.m., my phone rings, no caller-ID. 'Hey, yeah, I think that we should change the artwork. I like this other artwork.’ Now this other artwork is 85 grand. I said, ‘Hey, I don’t want to pay for that. And I wasn’t even going to ask you to pay for that. We picked what we picked. It’s here, it’s ready. No, this what people need to see to go with this music. I’ma pay for that.’”
“It’s a picture. … It’s just a picture that to license it worldwide is 85 grand. I’m not really too, too, too entrenched in the art world like that. I’m just going to let him do that thing. And he’s paying for it.”

I guess I have to hear the album to get the meaning behind exploiting the dead. With all the drugs in Kanye and Kim's house I don't know why they couldn't use a pic of his medicine cabinet

Fake ass deep niggers.

This is a ploy to sell. Pusha T knew to get in front of it cause he don't want the backlash. Controversy is cute until somebody pull up.

DISGUSTING. Everybody is exploiting Whitney’s memory. Is he gonna use his mama’s image gasping her last breath for shock value.

Kanye nor Pusha whatever ain’t shit. SO they exploit WHitney cause even in death she’s BIGGER THAN either of these assholes.

Nothing good is going to come for either of these demons. COSMIC RETRIBUTION. COME THRU GIRL. COME THRU.

This is a marketing ploy all the way around. Pusha T strategically stated this, because he knows that people are going to want to listen to the album just to find out the correlation between his lyrics and that picture. Having a crackhead for a daddy, he can't tell me shit about being strung out that I haven't witnessed first hand. I'll pass on this album.

Kanye, let Whitney rest in peace. It is bad karma to turn the knife of sorrow in those loved ones who still grieve. Nothing good will come of it.

I truly miss Whitney Houston, grieved for her as if she was a family member. This is just pure evil, to make fun of her weakness. Karma is real. I will never buy anything from Kanye or Pusha T.

Y’all made some good comments. I don’t understand how this pic would make anyone curious or want to listen to the album. I don’t give a damn about Pusha, but this is a turn off either way.

And yes, he should use his mama autopsy pic if her really wants attention.

Stupid idea, stupid move, stupid person.

Im glad they had fun buying that artwork for 85 Grand cause im not playing, or listening to this bullshit. They couldve gotten self creative with it. Instead they exploit and disrespect Whitney. She was legend. She was fucked. She was a human, but regardless of her drama she had a beautiful voice and made great music that continues to be played to this day. She is an icon and using this photo isn't going to get me, a fucking consumer to purchase this shit on itunes.
