Kanye West Debuts Music Video For ‘Bound2′, Kim Kardashian In Tow

Hmm. So this is going to be a brief “first impressions” type of thing because my mind is honestly…boggled. In case you missed it, Kanye West‘s new video for ‘Bound2′ dropped yesterday and, whaddaya know, it stars his baby mama come fiance, Kim Kardashian. But that’s neither here nor there. Mazel Tov to them both, to be honest! My issue is “wtf did I just watch?”

The song itself is, to me, below what Kanye is usually capable of. I get the point he’s trying to make with the lyrics (being over playing the field) just fine. The different melodies in this particular song happen to clash rather badly though, instead of complimenting/doing justice to each other. I had to wince more than once and, yeah, no me gusta. I couldn’t groove or get into any sort of mood at all while listening to ‘Bound2′; all I wanted was to turn it off!

The video? Listen, let’s just call it out for what it is, which is utterly ridiculous. And I don’t mean in the that-was-so-ridiculous-that-I-need-to-watch-it-on-loop way. No, the video is actually awful. Not the whole simulated nookie on a motorcycle because, hey, who doesn’t enjoy that? My issue is that, for a man as creative as Kanye, ‘Bound2′ is one of the least inspired things I’ve ever seen. It’s just him and a very naked Kim rubbing all over each other, awkwardly, as he stoically pretends to ride off into the proverbial sunset. “Awkward” being the operative word. Maybe they fail at successfully recreating their passionate moments for the camera? Whatever. All I know is that, instead of titillating me, this music video made me cringe on both a literal and figurative level.

Ugh.

North West, revealed!

Yesterday morning, Kris Jenner went ahead and did what we long suspected she would: debuted the first, much coveted, photo of North West. Not only was the photo released via her twitter, it was also shown as part of her talk show’s season finale episode, in conjunction with an exclusive Kanye West interview. *sigh* *SIGH* What’re you gonna do, right? Kanye values family and seems committed to helping his new one in any way he can. It just so happens that the family’s matriarch is the sort of person to abuse this aspect of his character for attention/ratings. Oh, well; Kanye is certainly a big boy who can take care of himself. And, at the end of the day, it really is only his daughter that matters. Speaking of which, yes. Feast your eyes on little North West:

Now, let’s all collectively “awwww” and admit that she’s friggin’ adorable.

Kim, Kanye, and the Kase of the Klandestine Kid

Okay, so, this is straight up suspicious. The I’ll-never-need-a-GPS named baby, North West, has now been present on Earth for over a month. Yet, still, we haven’t seen images of her. Oh, and those are random baby feet up there, just so you know. This makes me wonder! Sure, I’m all about new parent/baby privacy; I think that’s extremely important during this adjustment time. I’m just really confused and KNOW I’m not the only one.

We’re talking about a woman, Kim Kardashian, who’s made a business out of splashing her personal details (ew!) on every available magazine, television, billboard, etc. I guess, after a sex tape, nothing is sacred. It’s all about fame and the almighty dollar, even if so much of what she now attains in life is given instead of earned.

So. Why the baby wait? It’s important to note that Kim’s and, by extension, Kris Jenner’s desires aren’t the only elements at play here. One mustn’t forget the ultimate trophy “baby daddy”, Kanye West and what he may want. I know. You can practically envision my eye-rolls, right?

The entire situation is farcical but, I digress. Kanye has a notorious and well-documented hatred for the paparazzi. Given the kind of disrespectful assholes they can sometimes be, I’m not going to judge him for that. *I WILL, however,  judge him for thinking it’s okay to assault them on a regular basis. That’s simply poor form all around.*

Along with my other suspicions, I’m thinking Kanye’s paternal need to protect his child, from the exposure he sees as a threat, is what’s taking precedence over any wish Kim has of debuting the tiny diva-in-training. What are my other suspicions for keeping North West under wraps? Well, I have a few.

1) The baby is hideous. Yeah, yeah, I’m going to burn in Hell, wah, wah, wah. WHATEVER. I’m not talking about having an honest to Kanyesus-deformity or something because I would never crack jokes on that. What I’m saying is…what if the baby isn’t cute enough to suit Kim and Kanye? Let’s be real! If ever two more shallow people existed, amirite?! And everyone knows that babies tend to look a little Gremlin-ish for at least a few days after birth; all the compression of the birth canal is my guess. Maybe North West’s Gremlin never went away, leaving the parents scrambling for a cover story! Just a thought.

2) Keep in mind that this one is highly likely: The entire ‘K’ tribe are waiting on the highest media bidder. This child has to be presented at SOME time and it’s better for everyone involved if it’s done in a controlled manner. Knowing said ravenous paps, it would actually be safer to get this over with as quickly as possible. You know, so we can all move on! They’ve already turned down an Australian ‘zine’s $3 million offer which, to me, seemed like a pretty sweet deal. Could be that the couple await enough money to single-handedly offset all the RIDICULOUS changes Kanye has made to their new home. I mean, a golden TOILET, people. How is that necessary?

3) Kris Jenner’s new show is going to be used as a debut stage for the infant and they’re waiting for when it’ll be most effective/beneficial. For instance, in the case of a ratings slump. It would serve the dual purpose of drawing an audience of individuals who wouldn’t normally watch daytime TV, as well as allowing everyone to keep control of what images of the baby are released. I can’t say that I see a problem with this plan, to be honest. If they haven’t thought of this yet, it’ll be somewhat disappointing.

 It’s entirely possible that Kanye was NOT kidding around when he said that North would not be “America’s” baby. You have to respect that. Though it begs the question of why the hell he decided a kid with Kim Kardashian was a smart idea in the first place.
