Kanye West has just released the video for his song Monster, from his new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, but before you judge the video you should know this isn’t the completed version.
I don’t exactly know why the video was released if it isn’t fully finished yet but then again this is Kaney, who knows why he does anything except make good music. The song features Rick Ross, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj (who steals the video and song in my opinion).

President George W. Bush says that when he heard Kanye West say, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” “it was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency.”
Bush has taped an interview with Matt Lauer that will air on a special prime time Matt Lauer Reports on NBC Nov. 8. It’s to promote his forthcoming book, Decision Points.
The subjects of the interview are wide-ranging, but the former President is very passionate on the subject of West’s criticism of the way Bush handled the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. NBC has released some quotations from the interview.
“He called me a racist,” Bush tells Lauer. “And I didn’t appreciate it then. I don’t appreciate it now. It’s one thing to say, ‘I don’t appreciate the way he’s handled his business.’ It’s another thing to say, ‘This man’s a racist.’ I resent it, it’s not true.”
Lauer quotes from Bush’s new book: “Five years later I can barely write those words without feeling disgust.” Lauer adds, “You go on: ‘I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn’t like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to Katrina represented an all-time low.’
President Bush responds: “Yeah. I still feel that way as you read those words. I felt ‘em when I heard ‘em, felt ‘em when I wrote ‘em and I felt ‘em when I’m listening to ‘em.
Lauer: “You say you told Laura at the time it was the worst moment of your Presidency?”
Bush: “Yes. My record was strong I felt when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And it was a disgusting moment.”
Lauer: “I wonder if some people are going to read that, now that you’ve written it, and they might give you some heat for that. And the reason is this — “
Bush [interrupting]: “Don’t care.”
Lauer: “Well, here’s the reason. You’re not saying that the worst moment in you’re Presidency was watching the misery in Louisiana. You’re saying it was when someone insulted you because of that.”
Bush: “No, and I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well. There’s a lot of tough moments in the book. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”
The full interview will air on the Matt Lauer Reports special on Nov. 8 at 8 p.m., the day before the former President’s book is published.
Earlier this month it was reported that nude photos of Kanye West were being shopped around to various media outlets, it looks like someone picked them up because they have just been posted online and you can see them right here.
Apparently these photos are of when Kanye was hitting up girls on MySpace and sending the girls nude photos of himself, inlcuding ones of his peen. I’m no gonna bother talking about them, it does look like him and his tattoos match. He has yet to comment on them. Check out the photos below.
The cover for Kanye West‘s new album,”My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”, has been banned because it is too graphic. As you would expect from Kanye, he went on his Twitter account and posted the following…
“Yoooo they banned my album cover!!!!! Ima tweet it in a few…”
“Banned in the USA!!! They don’t want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix! http://twitpic.com/2ykxjk”
“In the 70s album covers had actual nudity… It’s so funny that people forget that… Everything has been so commercialized now.”
“In all honesty … I really don’t be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers #Kanyeshrug!”
“I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.”
“So Nirvana can have a naked human being on they cover but I can’t have a PAINTING of a monster with no arms and a polka dot tail and wings”
I don’t know, the album cover isn’t too bad but at the same I can see why it wouldn’t be sold at the likes of Wal-Mart. Either way I can’t wait for the album to come out on November 22nd.
At this point I want to know which celebrity hasn’t taken nude photos of themselves, anyway it seems that there are some nude photos of Kanye West being sold around to news sources.
RadarOnline claim to have seen two of the photos that are being sold around, apparently Kanye took photos of himself in the nude and was sending them to girls on MySpace. The person selling the photos said “these pics have been floating around since he hit so many girls up on MySpace. He probably sent them to many, many women.”
One of the photos show Kanye nude from the chest up wearing nothing but sunglasses and a gold chain, the other shows his mini-me poking out of his boxer briefs.
Kanye has been updating his Twitter like crazy (I had to unfollow him a while ago because he updates it too much) for the past hour but hasn’t mentioned anything about the photos yet.
