Thousands Sign Petition To Stop Kanye West’s David Bowie Tribute Album

Kanye West is making headlines again. This time, he apparently wants to record a tribute album in the wake of David Bowie’s death last week. Interesting since these two really aren’t in the same musical genre. Well, Ziggy Stardust fans got word of this and were not happy. So they started a petition to put a stop to it. It currently has over 5,000 signatures.

 

Well, Bowie fans, you can breathe, Kanye West has no plans to record a cover album. According to TMZ, Yeezy is not touching Bowie’s music. His rep tells TMZ “that it’s complete BS.” Well that’s good, because we really couldn’t imagine Kanye in some Ziggy Stardust makeup!

Although Kanye tweeted his admiration for Bowie last week, it doesn’t mean he’s going to turn this into a “Kanye show.” He said, “David Bowie was one of my most important inspirations, so fearless, so creative, he gave us magic for a lifetime.” Maybe the Bowie fans took it the wrong way and thought this was another ploy for Kanye to steal the spotlight. We know he’s done that before-remember Taylor Swift, Anne Bowen, 2015 Grammys?

Well everyone can relax, it’s not happening. Kanye won’t be taking the limelight this time.
