The Fug Girls caught up with Mr. West at today’s Rodarte show to ask him why he hadn’t been on his Twitter game as of late. In which Kanye responded, saying he’s been working on his Runaway film. A 40-minute noir piece based on his new album.
I’m color-correcting this film I shot in Prague a couple weeks ago. I want to edit the film on a boat. Where are the good editing boats? It’s the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend, and people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world. I’ve been feeling the idea of the phoenix. It’s been in my heart for a while. It’s maybe parallel to my career. I threw a Molotov cocktail on my career last year, in a way, and I had to come back as a better person.
