Kanye West Bought Whitney Houston Death Bathtub Photo For $85K For Pusha T Album Cover

Pusha T and Kanye

Pusha T reveals that Kanye West downed $85,000 for Whitney Houston’s death bathtub photo and here is why.

Pusha T new album Daytona is only hours away from release and the artwork is a bathtub photo. Now we are learning that the bathtub is the same tub that Whitney Houston died in. The late singer’s fans are currently going HAM on Kanye West and Pusha for this one but it’s already a done deal. Ye already shelled out the $85,000 licensing fee to acquire the photo and now it’s all over the internet.

Perhaps this is another clever marketing move on the part of Kanye or could be another dumb controversial move, depending on how it will impact the album sales. Pusha T says Kanye West called him in the middle of the night telling him he has plans to change the artwork and to get the artwork he like cost $85,000 and he already paid for it.

Pusha says he wasn’t about to pay 85 grand for a new artwork when he already had one, but Ye insist that this artwork goes better with the music. “It’s just a picture that to license it worldwide is 85 grand,” Pusha told Angie Martinez in an interview today. “I’m not really too, too, too entrenched in the art world like that. I’m just going to let him do that thing. And he’s paying for it.”
