Travis Scott is gearing up to release his third studio album Astroworld on Friday, but not without controversy. The Texan rapper came under fire for appearing to remove NYC nightlife legend Amanda Lepore from his album artwork.
The trans model appears in a version of the artwork that photographer David LaChapelle uploaded to his Instagram, while Lepore is absent in the version on Scott’s account.
There are no hard feelings from Lepore though, as she posted on Instagram: “A girl can’t help it??I’m too distracting for the eyes??I upstaged everyone in the photograph ?? Oh well…I love David Lachapelle and Travis Scott ??Love and kisses –??–”
