Did You Hear?

:: Was Kanye West just creating a publicity stunt when he angrily tweeted that his album artwork would be censored? Turns out he specifically asked artist George Condo for an album cover for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy that would be banned. We assume he also asked for one that would make our year-end Worst Album Covers list. [Vulture]

:: Britney’s “Hold It Against Me” single sleeve — a work of art? One Britney fan thinks so. [MTV Buzzworthy]

:: Trent Reznor, who scored David Fincher’s The Social Network, will next write the score for Fincher’s adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. [Spinner]
