Kanye West released a full-length film
In honor of the highly anticipated release of “Watch the Throne,” here is my shout out to Yeezy. Last October we were blessed when Kanye West released his debut film titled, “Runaway.” It’s 34 minutes of highlights off of Yeezy’s album, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” The songs off West’s album help us follow the story of these two ill-fated lovebirds…no pun intended. Such songs included “Dark Fantasy,” “All of the Lights” and “Runaway.”
The film begins with West running like an animal down a deserted road. At this point, we have no idea where or why he is running. Then we are taken back to the beginning when a mysterious, but beautiful creature flies into Earth on a comet and Kayne West takes her under his wing (of course).
At first I thought this storyline was quite odd, but as I watched this film for a third time, I felt that Kanye was trying to say something more. Not that I figured out what that was, but atleast the thought is there. I think the only person who could fall in love with a phoenix (aka a Victoria Secret model Selita Ebanks) would be Kanye West. Below are some of my favises from the film:
Favorite image: The gigantic light up Michael Jackson head.
Favorite scene: Without question when Kanye is rapping on top of the piano and the dancers come in. I’m glad ballet/pointe dancers got a chance to show of their amazing skills.
Favorite Kanye moment: When a fellow guest during the dinner party scene says, “Your girlfriend is really beautiful. Do you know she’s a bird?” “Nah I never noticed that,” Yeezy replies.
Favorite Quote: “First rule in this world baby, don’t pay attention to anything you see in the news.”
In the end, we find out why Kanye was running like a crazed animal. He was trying to stop his phoenix girlfriend from leaving him. Who knew he could run so fast.
As a society, we are rarely shocked these days. We have become immune to seeing celebrities flip out at the paparazzi, party till the wee hours of the morning and even some stars accidently showing their ‘Britney’ while getting out of a car. But there are some stories that really get us talking.
Below is a list of a few of those stories that put the shock back in shocking.
Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift
This shocking moment occurred on an evening that was supposed to be full of happiness for Miss Swift. Last year at the MTV Video Music Awards, Swift won for Female Video of the Year.
As she was accepting her award, Kanye West jumped up on stage and announced “Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.” Seemingly ruining Taylor’s night, Beyoncé saved the day by letting Taylor come up on stage and finish her acceptance speech.
Tiger Woods hitting multiple “holes in one”
It seemed to be a match made in heaven. In 2004, Tiger Woods married former Swedish model and nanny, Elin Nordegren. They had two beautiful children and a life that others dreamed of having.
Late one Thanksgiving evening, Woods was found lying on the ground next to his Escalade with injuries to his face. Why? According to “Us Weekly,” his wife found out that he was cheating on her with not one, but up to 13 women. Elin, he totally deserved to be beaten with that golf club…you go girl!
Larry, you are the father
Larry Birkhead was the former boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith. When Smith unexpectedly passed away in 2007, the main question that arose was who would get custody of Dannielynn, Smith’s young daughter. There were many contenders: Howard Stern (Smith’s lawyer and longtime partner) Larry Birkhead (Smith’s ex-boyfriend) Howard Marshall (Smith’s ex-husband) and Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt (Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband who had an affair with Smith) among many others.
After a long court battle, Birkhead was proven to be Dannielynn’s real father. His name is now listed on Dannielynn’s birth certificate.
Britney and Justin: The Breakup
Even though this couple has been separated since 2002, I am still impacted by this breakup. Britney and Justin were the couple next door. They met on the “Mickey Mouse Club” and both stepped into the role of pop stars. Dating for two and a half years, the couple broke up because Spears allegedly cheated on Timberlake with her chorographer, Wade Robinson.
As a result of the breakup, Timberlake decided to spill the beans and tell the world that he slept with Spears before marriage. Remember, Spears wanted to wait until she was hitched? Timberlake also went on to write the song, “Cry me a River,” which had a guest appearance of a woman who was a striking resemblance to Spears in the music video. This breakup also produced Spears’ single “Everytime,” in which she attempts to apologize to Timberlake. Even though these two have gone their separate ways, I still dream of the day when they will reunite.
