It all started on Sunday with Kanye West saying his new CD cover was being banned in several places including Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart has released a statement that they did not even see the artwork in question and did not ban it.
Here is Wal-Mart's official statement they gave to Entertainment Weekly;
“We’re excited about Kanye West’s new album and we look forward to carrying it in our stores on November 22nd,”
“As always, it’s our standard practice to carry the edited parental advisory version. We did not reject the cover artwork and it was never presented to us to view.”
Well, regardless if Wal-Mart did ban it or not, Kanye has been getting a lot of publicity for the CD by saying the cover was banned and it has been rumored there might be 7 different CD covers.
So did Kanye lead us to the "Runway" with saying the CD cover was banned to drum up publicity or is Wal-Mart lying?-Dr.FB
Katt Williams is back in the news again. The comedian was arrested at a Wal-Mart earlier this week in the parking lot. Someone said that Williams or one of his entourage whipped out a shotgun at that Wal-Mart. The charge was not true which was found after Williams was detained.
The other arrest stemmed from a burglary charge from early November. Katt was not having this many issues when he lived in Woodland Hills, California. Just saying.-Dr.FB
Despite a horribly crappy McCrappers Economy, Wal-Mart still made a fricken profit last month!
The jobless claim is at a 26 year high. Now this.
Taylor Swift, who's new CD drops tomorrow in stores, made an appearance on David Letterman last night.
The CD, entitled "Fearless", is the 2nd for the 18 year old who will be turning 19 next month. This cd will be going against Christina Aguilera's CD which will sold only at Target stores. So far, the direct marketing approach has worked for Best Buy and Wal-Mart, producing a slew of number ones.
Something tells me you will see Taylor number one on the charts and Christina somewhere in the top 5. Having less to do with Target's marketing scheme than it being a greatish hits cd with a few new songs.-Dr.FB
