Vogue Gets Sued Over Kimye Cover Shoot Video
Sometimes, being too nice may later turn to regret- that may be the thought of Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, as she may be regretting her decision to put Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on cover of her magazine.
According to New York Post, her company is being sued over the April photo shoot.
A forgotten boy-band crooner from the 1970s who sued West last year, claiming the rapper swiped one of his songs for a track on his album “Yeezus,” is now going after Vogue for using the tune in a behind-the-scenes video.
The “exclusive video,” posted on Vogue’s website, “takes you on set with the happy family,” with images of a canoodling Kimye posing with baby North for celebrity photographer Annie Leibowtiz.
Rickey Spicer was shocked when he heard his voice in the West title “Bound 2.”
His Manhattan civil suit against Vogue publisher Condé Nast says “Mr. Spicer’s voice is used substantially throughout the video, comprising approximately 44 percent of the lyrics.”
The Ohio man says the magazine “knowingly used the voice audio recording of Mr. Spicer without his authorization or consent.”
He wants unspecified compensation.
