Kanye West – Bound 2Posted: November 23, 2013
Err… now I’m not going to lie; I am a fan of Kanye’s music. In fact, I agree he has done a great deal for popular music since he’s came on the scene. And in some way, I do think he’s a genius.
But, after watching this all I can say is… erm…?
So pulling in his wife/mother of his child into the video doesn’t just tug on the cheese factor, but having her practically topless, bobbing up and down on a motorbike in front of him, whilst spraying lyrics likes “I wanna fuck you hard on the sink” and “step back, can’t get spunk on the mink” feels a bit too personal. Does it not? Or just a tad bit “look how much we’re SO in LOVE with EACH OTHER!!“, whilst screaming the opposite.
It never works. Look how much the world cringed when David and Victoria Beckham released those god awful pictures of them both; her looking as through she is orgasming by sprawling out on a car bonnet, and him, not even looking down at his spasming wife, just looking like a cold and boring stone statue instead. Yeurgh!
I’m sorry Kanye. Like I said, I love his music, although this song is a hard stretch to actually like, with it’s weird “uh huh honey” interruptions and lyrics, which instead of flowing into each other trickles painfully and slowly, brings me to ask, is Kim is Kanye’s Yoko Ono to John Lennon.
Hmm… (just saying.) Your thoughts and comments please?
