Stjärnan går till rasande angrepp mot censuren och publicerar den kontroversiella omslagsbilden själv.
"Banned in the USA!!! They don't want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!" skriver Kanye West samtidigt.
Och West fortsatte att rasa på twitter, här är twitterserien om bilden:
"In the 70s album covers had actual nudity... It's so funny that people forget that... Everything has been so commercialized now.
I know that cover just blew yall minds ... I wish yall could see how hard I'm smiling right now!!!
In all honesty ... I really don't be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers #Kanyeshrug! I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.
So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can't have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings."
