HOLY SHIT WHERE HAS THIS ARTICLE BEEN ALL MY LIFE

6. As "Runaway" plays (the song Kanye debuted to huge acclaim at the MTV awards), the guests become the "douchebags" mentioned in the song and offer themselves a toast. Things take a turn for the worst however when the main course is served up: Selita reacts in horror as the poultry course is served. Kanye retaliates by breaking into song and calling on a flock of ballerinas (dressed all in black) to assist him for a full-on version of "Runaway". As the version is extended over several minutes, we're treated to a lengthy extract where the dancers perform. Crack-obsessed rapper Pusha-T's rhymes about being "young rich and tasteless" have never sounded better than when accompanied by interpretative dance in a tutu.

14. The film will be packaged with the album in November, but in under a fortnight's time it will be transmitted in full on TV where it will simultaneously premiere on the big three American music networks. It will also be uncut.

:wom: :wom:

DAMN!!!!!! Wait will there be a new version of "Runaway". Or are they just describing the VMA/SNL performance?

1. Runaway stars Kanye as "Griffin" and former Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks as "The Pheonix" [sic]. It's directed by Kanye and based on a story by Kanye, but there's an additional writing credit for music video visionary Hype Williams.

21. He described Runaway as "one of those legacy-building moments". He wants it to be a physical thing, pointing out that despite the brilliance of Beyonce and Gaga's videos, there are just "four-minute blasts". He wants something that can loop indefinitely or perhaps be "the last option on your TV at the hotel before the porn".

71. He is clearly thrilled that "Monster"/"Runaway"/"See Me Now" are in the Hot 97 chart. He'd like to sell a million but doesn't even know if that's possible any more. "As Jay says, 'Numbers don't lie.'"

48. He thinks Illumunati would be a "really good name" for a supergroup, talking about how it would make a great moniker if he, Rihanna and Jay-Z teamed up.

:ohno:

63. When asked about which UK artists he admired, he initially remarked, "I don't do a lot of research," and had to stop his blog because of the demands on his time. It is worth pointing out that he did work extenstively with UK artists: not only Mr Hudson, but Ellie Jackson from La Roux (who appears on a track with Alicia Keys) and MIA.

So La Roux is on Lost in the World?

Seems so. And...

52. He samples Aphex Twin's "Avril 14" on "Blame Game". Intriguingly the same sample was used heartbreakingly well by Saturday Night Live comedy troupe The Lonely Island on the night Kanye appeared on the show (Lonely Island composed a Mahmoud Ahmadinejad love song called "Iran So Far"). Kanye takes the track into a more personal direction: anyone whose ever had a messy breakup will relate to "I'll call you bitch for short / You'll call me mother***er for long / And next day we'll admit we were both wrong". According to Kanye he was looking to "try and get close sonically" to Portishead territory. He called them "apartment melodies" but admitted that you often have to make "brasher bigger pop melodies in order to afford an apartment nice enough".

Also...

75. MTV wanted him to sit in the audience to watch Taylor Swift perform at this year's awards. He refused.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOB! :h5:

82. His font for the art work is hand-drawn in Milan by the same team who create Jil Sander's logo.


87. One audience member asked him if he fancied exploring another artistic avenue after music, film and fashion. He simply said, "Broadway," and moved on. Who knows if he was joking.
