On Wednesday night, Kanye tweeted an image of himself mocked up to be a Rolling Stone cover and said, "ROLLING STONE SHOT BY TYLER THE CREATOR." According to a tweet from Rolling Stone, the cover is not real: "While we love Kanye, and have many mustard-related questions for him, this is not an actual cover of Rolling Stone."

A rep for Kanye West did not immediately return a request for comment.

Kanye has tweeted that while his Rolling Stone cover is a fake, it still could be a real cover. He's also set up a Twitter poll asking his followers to vote on whether or not Rolling Stone should print it. Maybe a Marvel-style variant on next month's print edition?
