If every photo like this there’s always a Joe Francis in the background falling in love with the birthday boy.
For his next music video, Kanye West – I’m sorry, Yeezus. West is his “slave name.” – wanted to have James Franco recreate the scene in American Psycho where Christian Bale talks about Huey Lewis & The News before murdering the shit out of Jared Leto. Apparently, this wasn’t pretentious enough for dicknose, so now Kanye’s using Scott Disick because he doesn’t give a shit anymore which is the only way to read this. Page Six reports:
Sources further say the video, shot in Brooklyn, will re-create Christian Bale’s famous “Huey Lewis” monologue, but with Lewis’ name substituted by references to West and his forthcoming album “Yeezus.” Bale famously asked a colleague played by Jared Leto in the film, “You like Huey Lewis and the News?” before slipping on a raincoat and killing him with an ax. (Bale also quips that the album “Sports” “has a clear, crisp sound and a new sheen of consummate professionalism.”) The role of Leto in West’s video is reportedly played by Kim Kardashian’s pal Jonathan Cheban.
I don’t even have a small satchel of fucks to give about how this is clearly an effort to save a few grand in child support, so I’ll just embed this video below and point out that Funny or Die released it two months ago:
Does “Yeezus” mean unoriginal bastard in Kanye? I’m still waiting on my Rosetta Stone CDs.
