Kanye West's “Monster” Video: Not Gonna Do Kanye's Public Image Many Favors

The new final clip for Kanye West's “Monster” — or what may become known as the dead-model orgy video — makes the rapper look every bit as conceited and shallow and tone-deaf as his detractors say he is. And the disclaimer at the beginning doesn't help one bit. Maybe decorating a video set with the supposed corpses of skinny beautiful women would be less cringe-inducing if it served some larger point. But it doesn't here — and as Eric Harvey and others have noted, West essentially shrugs off any statement the video could make by slapping that awkward disclaimer on the front of it.
