Kanye West’s highly anticipated video for “Runaway” was finally released and in typical Kanye fashion, it was dramatic. After all the controversy of his album cover being banned, there was a lot of hype about this video. I quite frankly was not disappointed. Mr. West’s music provided the soundtrack, of course. It was full of vivid imagery and I think it was better than some of the movies I’ve seen in theaters.
Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks is one beautiful woman and Kanye couldn’t have picked a better looking phoenix in my opinion. She wears only feathers throughout the 34 or so minute video (genius idea!). Kanye doesn’t have many lines, but one that I quite enjoyed was: “First rule in this world baby, don’t pay attention to anything you see in the news.”
I may have to reconsider my Halloween costume, Lovelies…
What do you think of the video? Beautiful or strange?
