Bowie Fans to Kanye: Don’t Even Think About That Cover Album

By Hayden Wright

In the wake of David Bowie‘s death, conversation swirled about tributes and covers—some real and others imagined. One rumor deemed a bridge too far for Bowie diehards was one that Kanye West would record an album of covers. Outraged fans launched a U.K. petition on the 38 Degrees change platform. TMZ quickly claimed West’s rep denied his plans to do the album, but the growing petition has almost 10,000 signatures.

“David Bowie was one of the single most important musicians of the 20th and 21st century, it would be a sacrilege to let it be ruined by Kanye West,” writes petition author Peter Pirhana.

West tweeted his admiration for Bowie last week but never announced formal plans to touch the icon’s discography.

“David Bowie was one of my most important inspirations, so fearless, so creative, he gave us magic for a lifetime,” he wrote.

The petition may be much ado about nothing but the message to Kanye is clear: Don’t even think about it.
