Kanye West debuted his new video for “Bound 2” today on “Ellen” to very mixed reviews.
The video features rolling landscapes cut with a wind-blown Kim, looking very shiny and not wearing much. The couple makes out on a motorcycle against the backbeat of the song, which some say is worse than the video.
West has taken a lot of criticism in the past year or so for his relationship with the most popular Kardashian sister, partly because she’s been branded as a “Yoko” who somehow stole his talent away like a succubus. The reviews of his latest album, “Yeezus”, have been pretty mixed, but it definitely did not exceed expectations. The couple have been the focus of the media quite a bit lately because of their seemingly hypocritical relationship with the press: they don’t want to be constantly photographed, especially when they have daughter North with them, yet Kim is one of the most highly photographed people in the country and shares every moment of her life on reality television (then there was the proposal, for which he rented out AT&T Park Stadium).
. @KimKardashian is @kanyewest's @yokoono; he was making amazing art & then became a shadow of himself collaborating w/a really bad 'artist'
