David Bowie Fans Sign Petition To Stop Kanye West Tribute Album
The mere rumor of a Kanye West tribute album to David Bowie was enough for the late rocker's fans to start a petition against it.By Ryan Biek | January 20, 2016
Thousands of David Bowie fans are so opposed to Kanye West recording a tribute album to the late singer, they've signed a formal petition to try to prevent that from happening. Ever.
Kanye hasn't even officially announced plans for the album, but that hasn't stopped more than 8,000 people from signing a petition on 38 Degrees to stop the rapper from recording any Bowie covers. (Video via Def Jam Recordings / Kanye West)
The rumor stems from a Daily Star article in which anonymous sources say he's recorded a few songs, singing straight covers on some and adding raps to others.
