The Independent spoke with Andrew WK about the controversy surrounding the cover of his new album, I Get Wet, which critics charged suggested drug use and violence. He’s since been forced to withdraw the cover by the ASA. When asked if he thought it was distressing, Andrew said, “I don’t find it distressing. You’d have to ask them. I never thought of drugs or violence until I read what they said… Actually, I think it’s beautiful… I just think it’s a cool picture, it made sense with the title. It’s wide and vast and open, and ready to go.”
