Vampire Weekend Sued Over Their Album Cover!

Well, shiz! These guys are NOT going to be used to dealing with a mess like this!

Hipster band Vampire Weekend is being sued for $2 million by the model on the cover of their latest album, Contra, who claims that she never signed a release on the photo!

The woman is named Kirsten Kennis, and she apparently took the pic back in 1983!

The band bought the photo from the photographer, Tod Brody, but Kennis alleges that her signature on the photographic release was forged and she didn't even know her image was being used until Vampire Weekend started promoting the album!

Poor guys! We bet that they just wanted to be original and use some old, unknown photo, and had no idea they were doing anything wrong!

Sucks!

Thoughts??
