Vampire Weekend Sued by Model

The model used on the cover of Vampire Weekend's latest album, Contra, is suing the band for using her image without her permission. Apparently, the band purchased the photo from the photographer, who took the shot back in 1983. The photographer has the model's signature to release the rights, but she claims that the signature is fake. Now, she's suing the band for $2 million... I don't know. Part of me says, sure, maybe this chick deserves SOME money (NOT $2 million), but can't she just be happy that her mug made it a successful band's album cover? What else was this photo doing before, besides sitting in a drawer?
