Kanye West Naked Models

Kanye West used forty naked models to help promote his new album '808's and Heartbreak'.

Guests at the launch party were treated to an open bar and DJ before "walking up a driveway illuminated by fluorescent lights to a darkened room where we say 40 nude women. Most of them were wearing strange masks made of wool." 

The models who West said were, "live performance artists" then stood in the middle of the room while the new album was played.  Apparently the naked models were part of a art show put together with the help of Vanessa Beecroft.

After the album was played West said, "These are pieces of real life that I'm putting out for people to judge. It's from my heart. I don't give a f**k if someone rates it 'hot' or 'not'. I'm here to bring positivity that cannot be judged. It's like judging a grandmother's love!"

Sounds to me like he was not expecting good reviews so he got his attack in first.
