With all the hullabaloo about Kanye West’s recent album, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Monster video is sure to be just another chapter in Kanye’s saga of controversial choices. Dead girls being kissed and groped, hanging dead girls with nooses made of chains, dead girls stuffed into couches? This 30 second sneak peek gives us only a glimpse of what is to come.
And what could possibly be revealed in the full video! Will Nicki Minaj save the day and kill all the necrophilic monsters? Or will it be a step into the the fun new world of objectifying DEAD women in hip hop? And how will indie dahhhling Bon Iver enter into the video’s plot? We shall see my friends, we shall see.
I actually really enjoy the song itself, as it features one of the most charismatic and enjoyable verses I’ve yet heard from dear Nicki. Thanks to Bust Magazine’s blog for the post on the video. Check out Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy here, if you DARE.
p.s. Did i just compare Kanye to Christ in my post title? I bet he’d think I did, that narcissist!
