Kanye Won’t Be Covering Bowie

The rumor that Kanye West will do a cover album of David Bowie’s songs got so out of hand that Yeezus had to publicly address it, saying that he never planned anything of the sort. The thing we’re talking about, of course, is the internet furor over something that turned out to be nothing but rumor – that Kanye will be covering Bowie’s hits for his next project.
Bowie has been one of his role models and sources close to Kanye say that he never even considered covering his tunes.
Considering the fact that Kanye would have probably just dismissed the outrage and the petition that was started in the UK, we are pretty sure this is not just him going back on his plans. We honestly believe Kanye never wanted to do the cover album.
David Bowie was one of my most important inspirations, so fearless, so creative, he gave us magic for a lifetime.
