Spike Jonze’s Bitchslaps Kanye West

October 29, 2009

To promote yesterday’s iTunes release of the pair’s new short, We Once Were a Fairytale, Spike Jonze posted this medium-funny behind-the-scenes video of him pretending to slap a distracted Kanye West on the set. Given Kanye’s popularity these days, this seems like pretty smart marketing. Also, bear in mind that this clip was shot before Kanye pissed Spike off for real by leaking Fairytale on his blog last week, so it might be the first in a series.

“We Were Once A Fairytale” Kanye West Dir:Spike Jonze

October 19, 2009

Beautiful piece of Art : this is what happens when you put two of the most creative thinkers in entertainment in a room and lock the door for a few days.Spike Jonze understood perfectly how to portray ¬†egomaniacal¬†artist Kanye West- and render him with some fragility, we ‘re thrown into a place where we could only ¬†understand, pardon,give him credits.We’re touched emotionally,we all battle with ourselves.

update : Kanye West has apologised to fans after he removed the video directed by Spike Jonze from his website.West’s blog says: “Sorry I had to take it down.” It is not known why the video was removed.
