Vogue Magazine Sued Over Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Cover Shoot...

Anna Wintor made a bold decision by putting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the cover of the latest issue of Vogue , and she’s seen her fair share of backlash as a result. Here’s one more thing to add to that list, her company is now being sued over it. 

A forgotten boy-band crooner from the 1970s who sued West last year, claiming the rapper swiped one of his songs for a track on his album “Yeezus,” is now going after Vogue for using the tune in a behind-the-scenes video.

The “exclusive video,” posted on Vogue’s website , “takes you on set with the happy family,” with images of a canoodling Kimye posing with baby North for celebrity photographer Annie Leibowtiz.
Rickey Spicer — who sang lead vocals as a 12-year-old Michael Jackson wannabe for the one-hit-wonder group “The Ponderosa Twins Plus One” — was shocked when he heard his voice in the West title “Bound 2.” 

His Manhattan civil suit against Vogue publisher Condé Nast says “Mr. Spicer’s voice is used
substantially throughout the video, comprising approximately 44 percent of the lyrics.”
The Ohio man says the magazine “knowingly used the voice audio recording of Mr. Spicer without his authorization or consent.”

He wants unspecified compensation.
