POTW: Gwen Stefani, Shakira, Kanye West, Jennifer Lopez
Kanye West dresses classy but relaxed in slippers on the red carpet of the 2010 New Yorkers For Children Fall Gala in NYC on Sept. 21.

Kanye West's recently-revealed provocative album cover may have gotten "banned" by the powers that be at Def Jam, but he's got a back-up plan: four other covers.

That's right, 'Ye has a total of five covers for his upcoming "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" album, due Nov. 22. "Well, actually, it's five covers," he told MTV News on Monday (Oct. 18) at the Los Angeles screening of his short film "Runaway." "And you get all five of them when you buy the album."

Meanwhile, Kanye appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show yesterday (Oct. 19) and touched on the Taylor Swift incident, moving to Japan, Rome and Hawaii to get away from all the hoopla and take a break from music, his internship at Fendi, being a "soldier of culture" and his new Diamond teeth. He also gave an exclusive sneak peak of his "Runaway" video. Watch the clip below:

My question is, now that Kanye has repented, do you still hate him (that is if you hated him to begin with)? Leave your comments below.
