Right after the latest episode of the Italian renaissance performance art piece that is Jersey Shore aired last night, MTV hung up another work of HIGH!!!AR!!!!T when they premiered the 142-second long for Kanye West’s video for “Power” directed by artist Marco Brambilla. Let me pull off my CAPS LOCK key and shove it up my culo as punishment (wink wink) for calling this a video. As Kanye says, it’s a moving painting! It’s like egotry in motion!
My abuelita used to have this lit painting thing of a Jesus near a waterfall hanging in her bedroom. When you plugged it in, it would light up and the waterfall would start flowing. It was the classiest thing I had ever seen (I didn’t know about velvet paintings back then). I actually like this mess from Kanye, because it reminds me of that elegant flowing waterfall. I also like Kanye’s moving painting, because he’s wearing one of Kelly Bensimon’s owl necklaces.
Fun fact: 142 is also the number of times Kanye jizzed into his silk Versace chonies while watching this for the first time.
