Kanye West Makes an Enemy of Whitney Houston’s Family
Kanye West should just go ahead and pose naked at this point.
Are we dying to see the rapper's most private of parts? No.
But if the artist is looking to make headlines and garner attention, he'd be far better served at this point to just follow the lead of wife Kim Kardashian...
... as opposed to doing all the nauseating nonsense he's been doing for the last several weeks.
It all started shortly after West confirmed he had a pair of albums coming out this summer.
From there, he returned to Twitter and rambled on and on about making America great again, while making his affectionfor President Donald Trump well known to all.
Then, he said black people chose to be slaves.
We figured this was the lowest point to which Kanye could sink, and some may understandably argue that is remains the case.
However, such an asinine comment was not personal in the way his latest actions are personal.
To what are we referring?
West actually went ahead recently and paid $85,000 for a photo that depicted Whitney Houston’s bathroom on the day she died of a drug overdose.
(The iconic singer's body was found in the bathtub of her hotel room on February 11, 2012.)
The disturbing snapshot features a sink and vanity area covered in drug-covered spoons and drug paraphernalia.
Why would Kanye want this haunting image?
Because he used it as the cover photo for for Pusha T’s album "DAYTONA."
Houston's cousin, Damon Elliott, certainly thinks so.
“To do something for a publicity stunt to sell records, it’s absolutely disgusting,” Elliott tells People Magazine of the photo, adding:
“It hurt my family and my daughter. It’s petty. It’s tacky.”
Yeah. We can easily see why.
Elliott actually worked with Kanye on a Keyshia Cole track and said he was stunned to learn the musician made this decision.
“I’ve watched the train wreck happening, but I didn’t think he’d go this far in invading someone’s family privacy,” says Elliott, referencing West’s recent rants and raves on social media.
Elliott wants West to apologize and to replace the inappropriate album cover.
And if Kanye ever calls and the two can chat? What would Whitney's cousin say?
What were you thinking? Did you think this through? And if you did, why did you do this?
Because you’re hurting people. It knocked the wind out of me last night. When someone passes, you try to mourn and move on and remember the good times.
Amen. And... obvious, right?
To everyone except Kanye West.
