Litigious Vampire Weekend Cover Model Says She Never Met the Photographer


The Fairfield Citizen has a profile of Ann Kirsten Kennis, the woman on the cover of the new Vampire Weekend album who is suing the band for using her likeness without her consent. Kennis says that she has never met the photographer, and the release submitted to the band — which she claims was forged — has her name spelled two different ways and only offered her one dollar in payment. If that wasn't depressing enough, the article reveals that Kennis recently underwent chemotherapy and has lost the locks on display in said contentious album cover photo.
