Kanye's Finished "Monster" Video Comes With Viewing Instructions

Illustration for article titled Kanye's Finished "Monster" Video Comes With Viewing Instructions

First Rihanna shoots a dude, and now Kanye's dangling some nice lady's bloody dome from his fingers. Why are you so dark and twisty, Music Videos? What ever happened to good old-fashioned bitches and bling?

When an unfinished cut of Kanye's ‘Monster' video leaked in December it was widely reviled for depicting all manner of crimes against women-kind, including but not limited to decapitation, hanging, and being made to look like a werewolf. Now the official video has been released, and it looks pretty much as you would expect — fanged monsters, zombie monsters, hairy monsters, Nicki Minaj monsters, Rick Ross American Psycho monsters. Get it? They're all motherfucking monsters.

The final cut comes with a very 'Ye disclaimer: "The following content is in no way to be interpreted as misogynistic or negative towards any group of people. It is an art piece and it shall be taken as such." What, you don't think we can recognize art when she's bleeding all over the floor in front of us?

Nikki by far has the best verse on this track, and she absolutely kills it - if you'll forgive the pun.

As to the misogyny in the video, dead supermodels dangling off furniture everywhere surely is saying something not awesome about women, and maybe the depiction of women as monsters isn't either. But then Kanye seems to be the one responsible for the deaths of these women, so maybe that's saying something, too?

Eh, whatever. It's a fierce-ass song, for sure.
