Kanye West paid $85,000 of his own money to use an infamous photo of Whitney Houston's drug-filled bathroom vanity as the cover art for Pusha T's new album, Daytona. FYI: (The most expensive piece of art I own costs $500 - I still can't believe that I spent that much money) That's what Pusha revealed Thursday in a radio interview, adding that 'Ye (who produced Daytona) made the decision at the last minute. "One a.m., my phone rings. No caller ID. [He says,] 'Hey, yeah, I think we should change the artwork. And I like this other artwork. And this other artwork is 85 grand,'” Pusha explained. "I said, 'Hey, I don’t want to pay for that and I wasn’t even going to ask you to pay for that.' [West said], 'No, this is what people need to see to go along with this music. Imma pay for that.' I say, ‘You my man! You my man!'" (My husband and I had a huge fight after I spent that money. He gave me a whole speech about how my impulsive purchases might be the end of me. We fought about it for like 10 minutes, then quickly made up because that's healthy) People notes that the pic was secretly snapped by one of Houston's relatives in 2006 as she was struggling with drug addiction. Meanwhile, Daytona dropped today. (I once dropped my baby. Actually, she rolled off the bed. She was 10 months old. I cried for like seven days and gained 5 lbs)
