It wouldn’t be a day of the week without a little KimYe news, haaahh?!
Kanye West debuted the video for his latest single “Bound 2″ on Ellen (If only Kris Jenner’s talk show had survived a little longer) and, for lack of a better word and restful night’s sleep, it’s epic. What begins as a live-action howling-at-the-moon wolf tee (great minds, Jezebel) evolves into a spectacular, in-color Ansel Adams — all serving as a backdrop for West and Kim Kardashian to simulate sex on a motorcycle. Just go with it.
(This is the second time the vid’s director, Nick Knight, has kaptured KimYe getting koital — he shot their first steamy photo shoot as a kouple for L’Officiel Hommes back in March.)
Fashion-wise, West seems to have cast off his leather joggers and kilts in favor of a more ’90s, deconstructed, just-brawled-with-a-grizzly-bear vibe. At one point, he wears a fur vest layered over a plaid flannel layered over another plaid flannel; in another scene, he’s sporting a tattered tie-dyed tee that you know cost your month’s rent. Unless perhaps KimYe has fallen on hard times — West’s jeans are shredded in the Ellen segment as well.
As for Kardashian? She’s wearing pants. Thazz all. (Maybe one of West’s many shirts was supposed to be hers? IDK.)
But in all seriousness, I can’t even knock this video. I really, really enjoyed it. And it cements my stance that, regardless your feelings about her as a person, you have to admit Kardashian is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Hi haters. HI.
Let’s put it this way: The video demands a full-screen, HD viewing. Though we’d recommend holding off until your boss goes on lunch break.
