Inspirational Overload: Album Covers

Yeah, I know what your thinking....why is she saying Album Covers?  Okay, well there is a lot of new music coming out by some of my favorite artists and I have been really digging the album covers.  And I wanted to share with you.  I am just gonna start with my favorite and go down the line. 

Kanye West

by Artist George Condo

Not an album cover as many know but, this have to admit it captures you.  Its funny cartoon face, a little bit scary but, you have to admit, you can not help but to stare at it.  Because its staring at you.  Unapologetically.  So much like Kanye himself.   It made me want to look up who painted this.  Who's behind Kanye's Covers.  His name is George Condo.  His work speaks for itself.

He's also behind this (possibility of this album cover which still remains to be seen since it's banned in the US)

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

so I believe they opted for this one instead
And Cleveland's own Kid Cudi.

Man on the Moon 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager
I love the ol' picture finish.  Mr Solo Dolo looks amazing although somewhat depressing.  It has a lot of feeling to it.  In which from what I hear, the albums is really good.  I still have to get it.

Nicki Minaj: Pink Friday

Nicki Minaj
Look no arms.  hahahaha!  Elongated legs, funny face, pink wig. I cant help but love this chick.  She's crazy and for some reason...I find myself singing her lyrics from time to time. I can not wait to get her album.  I have a feeling she is literally Massive attacking a lot of so called Rappers out her.

I love NERD.  Always have....always will.  Great album by the way.  Photographed by Terry Richardson

And how can I forget.....Maroon Five a.k.a Seksi Music.

Hands all Over
Great album.  Period.  The multiple hands, the covers, the bed.  Enough said.  Very Seksi.

Oh, Tom. (Sigh)

I love him. No I really do. A man that knows how to dress a woman. A man that takes sexy to a whole new level. I looked forward to his collections, I am so, so, so happy he is back. Just look at him, look at him.
I mean who wouldn't want that waiting for them at home from a long days work.  Wow.  But, enough about his handsome, undeniable looks, his talent is what's a really turn on.  A director, a visionary, a fantastic designer and one of the true inspirational geniuses in the fashion world. (I love him)  I love the controversial campaigns for his men's line,  perfumes, sunglasses.

I love this one of Erykah Badu

But, man oh man when I saw the article in Vogue December magazine.....I died.

and these...

Oooooo...I got so excited.  I love the studio 54 look.  70's glamorous looks of Diana Ross and die (Rachel Zoe's voice)  I am so excited to see more from him.  My fashion lover is back.  Be still my heart.
