An unfinished version of Kanye West’s latest music video for his new single Monster has leaked its way to the Internets. The clip, which is making the rounds today, features guest appearances by Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj … and a slew of dead models. Because the clip is unfinished, there are still scenes in the clip that need to be edited … but this leaked work in progress gives us a good understanding of what Kanye is going for in the music video.
This video in its final version will most definitely be cleaned up considerably and the explicit language will surely be edited out (at least in the broadcast version of the clip). Monster is actually one of my fave tracks on Kanye’s excellent new album My Beautiful Dark, Twisted Fantasy. I understand he is also readying the release of a music video for his song All Of The Lights (which is, hands down, my fave track on the album) but for now … we have to make do with this unedited, unfinished version of the Monster music video:
Honestly, I could do without the hanging models … but the clip is kinda cool in a creepy way. I’m not sure if the disturbing sight of all of those dead models is meant to portray a message about beauty or just women in general but the sight of all of those dead (and sometimes decapitated) women is sure to rile up some folks. What do y’all think if Kanye’s music video for Monster? Do you like/loathe?
