Score 1 for Anna Wintour in the Vogue war with Drake and 21 Savage — a judge is forcing the rappers to shut down all their album promotions using a fake magazine cover … at least for now.
As TMZ Hip Hop first reported … Vogue publishers Condé Nast slapped the duo with a lawsuit over the promos they plastered around several cities and online. The phony Vogue, featuring 21 and Drizzy, was used to hype their new album, “Her Loss.”
Now, a federal judge is siding with Vogue by issuing a temporary restraining order to shut down all current and future use and display of the mocked-up cover. The order also blocks them from using Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s likeness.
Prior to the album’s release, Drake had posted the fake Vogue, and even shouted out Anna … thanking her for putting them on the cover. Of course, that was all made up … and, in fact, Condé Nast says it had explicitly told Drake and 21 they did NOT have permission to do the Vogue stunt.
There’s a court hearing scheduled for Nov. 22 on the matter, when both sides can present their cases. Condé Nast also sued for $4 million in damages, but the court hasn’t addressed that yet.
