Kanye + Gaga= Controversial Dave La Chapelle Photo Shoot

Urban Chameleon news

And the King Kong image is BLack I mean back. It's like a Black hair movie, every few years one comes out. Remember Lebron and Gisele on the cover of Vogue?

Boy did this bring about some major controversy with Lebron portraying the stereotyped, animalistic black man, white-woman-obsessed beast. However, the difference between Vogue and LaChapelle is that you expect controversy from LaChapelle. If you know LaChapelle's work you would know it kind of wouldn't be a LaChapelle photo if it weren’t provocative and controversial. Now whether or whether not the images are always successful is another question. What do you think?

Personally I would have found it more interesting if Gaga was carrying Kanye...
