Kanye is no stranger to controversy and with his sixth album Yeezus due to drop June 18th with no pre-order available for his fans, controversy is all he has been receiving.
The album was originally available for pre-order on KanyeWest.com but the pre-orders since has been taken down. Earlier this week this image leaked along with the artwork of his album courtesy of his baby mama Kim Kardashian’s instagram. Seems familiar doesn’t it? The image is a Kanye West rendition to the to Jesus Christ on the cross.
There’s more below.

What do you think of the Yeezus vs Jesus controversy ?
Twitter was in an uproar when Miguel snapped on a fan for accusing him of selling his soul in his new song “Use Me”. In the song Miguel sings:
Crucified thoughts, tender moments on a ricochet. urging my mind of the power I own, Fall into forever. Jut forgive me. I was faithless. Danger in your eyes. Baby, you can devour me! Defile me.Sedate me… Salacious, salty, & sweet.I’m overwhelmed by tasty thoughts of you.Daydream… my body’s waving a white flag.Take me, yeah, baby!
The fan used the lyrics against Miguel accusing him of selling his soul.
The real know you’ve already sold your soul, you proved it in your prayer “Use Me” clearly wasn’t to God! Can’t fool us all. You even sent warning in “Dont look back” you did what you thought you had to, just know the rewards are only temporary! You might need to read the words to your own song, exactly who were you asking to “Sedate you? Give control? To curse you?” Nothing self righteous at all about what I said, the lyrics are crystal clear! Just pointing out the obvious. Deception is real! Soon we will all believe right is wrong and wrong is right!
Read Miguel’s response below.
Dont be an idiot, there is no “prayer” in use me. take that over zealous self-righteousness elsewhere. I’m proud of my heritage but honestly, black people are the most judgmental people in the world. Sh-ts sad man. We’ve been conditioned, pre-programmed to hate ourselves. that’s why I appreciate those who choose to think and act for themselves regardless of ethnicity or culture. the problem can not be fixed until the problem is recognized.
Not everyone is the same thank goodness. And obviously, I love all my fans. Of course EVERYONE is judgemental. I just PERSONALLY believe WE are the most critical of our own.
This Illuminati “thing” has gone really far so artists have to really watch what they sing about if they want to stay away from the constant backlash.
Are black folk judgmental ? Was Miguel wrong for saying that ?
50-Cent sponsored a horse and carriage for the funeral of D’aja Robinson this past Friday. D’aja, a 14 year old female from Queens, NY, was boarding a bus with some friends after leaving a sweet 16 and when bullets let off sadly D’aja was hit by one and lost her life. 50 got word of the incident and reached out to the family wanting to help and he did. See what the rapper wrote on facebook below.
People always try and paint negative images about me I’m the most genuine down to earth person and I didn’t forget where I came from I came through for baby girl by providing a horse and carriage for her.She was pretty, innocent and didn’t deserve to die like that R.I.P D’Asia Robinson.
Kudos to Fifty who attended the funeral as well.
The NY Daily News reports:
The white horse drawn carriage carried D’aja’s white casket from the Friday service, which drew 2,500 people including hundreds of teenagers.
Police believe the girl was not the target of the shooting. A 16-year old was questioned in the case but released with no charges.
Prayers go out to the Robinson family.
Yesterday, Janet Jackson was spotted out looking super fab in a white pant suit at Amfar’s 20th Annual Cinema against AIDS event in France. The 47 year old was the center of attention as she posed flawlessly for the camera.
The singer/actress is working on a new album and has just been pegged amongst billionaires like Madonna and Oprah after raking in over a billion dollars last year from concerts, acting roles and sponsorships. With her hubby being a billionaire himself Janet can definitely rest well at night.
See more pics below.
Talk about fountain of youth. Janet you look great honey !
