Kanye West takes his topless fiancé, Kim Kardashian, for a scenic motorcycle ride past mountains and desert landscapes throughout the American West in his new video for “Bound 2,” unveiled today (Nov. 19) on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
West again enlisted Nick Knight (“Black Skinhead”) to direct the clip, a blue screened affair featuring West (and at times, Kardashian) in front of the camera while sped-up vistas rush past.
West and a backwards-sitting Kardashian straddle the bike (and each other) in the steamy clip for the “Yeezus” track, which includes romantic lyrics like, “I wanna f— you hard on the sink. After that get you something to drink.”
Asked by DeGeneres whether he’s worried about the explicitness of his music and how it will affect North West, his 5-month-old daughter with Kardashian, when she’s old enough to hear it, West was adamant. “I’m not concerned about the idea of profanity and nudity,” he said. “It’s more of the messaging behind it. She’s gonna be in the real world, she’s gonna hear things and see things. I think she’s gonna be prepared for them.”
A generally cheery West also showed off his comedy chops during banter with Ellen. “Had you been planning? Did you want to have a child so soon?” DeGeneres asked West about North. “I mean, we were just practicing all the time,” he responded.
