Fashion Gumbo: Kanye West, Lady Gaga and David LaChapelle

These are the pictures from her deluxe edition of her album "The Fame Monster" I see where some of the pictures relate to the album. They are all exceptionally beautiful but .. Kanye is only in one photo. How does fame tie in with a black man holding a naked white girl? My first reaction when I was this particular photo was King Kong proceeded by Rambo for some reason. Then came the thoughts of Taylor Swift, black men stealing white women, monsters ect, ect. Whatever the point he's trying to make with these photos - I get it. Kinda. A picture is supposed to be worth a thousand words. Mission accomplished.

Sidebar: Rihanna's photos for GQ were released last week. Just about the same nudity, different reactions. Why her, being Rihanna naked so controversial?
