Video: Kanye West, “Love Lockdown”

October 07, 2008


Premiered this morning on "Ellen," Kanye's new video smashes through a couple different walls in our brains' capacity to comprehend shit. First, it was debuted on "Ellen" (audience expansion). Second, it was co-directed by Roisín Murphy's stage director, Simon Henwood (artistic credibility). And finally, it references American Psycho, Coming to America and, uh, spaceships (we have no idea, but we're with it). And at the end of the clip, you can see the confused elation in Ellen's eyes and Kanye's just like "yep, that's it." We're flabberghasted. Try to make sense of it if you want. Kanye will be back on "Ellen" tomorrow for a live performance.
