At the LA premiere of his ‘Runaway’ film, Kanye talks to MTV and breaks down the banned cover for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. He also reveals that there will be 5 different album covers and you get all of them when you buy the album.
“I told [Condo] I wanted a phoenix, and that’s what he came up with,” said West. “And what I love about it is, both me and George express ourselves with our truest vision, not based on what society or culture feels is right, but what’s truly in our heart, and I just know if George was in my class back when I was in kindergarten, and he came up with something like that, I would’ve been envious, like, ‘Man, how did you come up with that character with no arms and the wings, man? That’s cool!’ … And it’s simply like that. I just really love the colors. I thought the colors were just amazing, and the imagery was amazing. I thought it was a cool, awesome cover.”
