In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Bobby Brown had a few harsh things to say about Kanye West choosing a photo of the late Whitney Houston's drug-filled bathroom for Pusha T's DAYTONA album cover art. 

Before Brown spoke to the publication, he actually had no idea that West chose such a picture for his G.O.O.D. music artist's project. The New Edition singer has been too busy working on his two-part biopic, The Bobby Brown Story, to notice. So, the Rolling Stone interviewer broke the news to the ex-husband of the iconic songstress that West licensed the photo for $85,000. Needless to say, Brown was not happy about it. "Why would he post that on his album cover?" he asked. "That's really disgusting that he would do that. That's in really bad taste." 

The singer continued: "Something should happen to Kanye. He's already crazy. I knew that when I first met him. Now he's pushing the bar a little bit. He needs somebody to slap him up or something. And I'm just the person to do it."

Houston's estate also isn't happy with West using the picture for Pusha's album. In a statement given to "Entertainment Tonight," the estate said that they are "extremely disappointed in Kanye's choice." The statement continued, "Even in Whitney’s death, we see that no one is exempt from the harsh realities of the world."
