This is the recent video released for Kanye West's 'Monster', taken from his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album. In true Kanye style, this freaky video has met with a lot of controversy due to the amount of dead models everywhere (Kate Moss is in the video, not dead), zombies eating people, a lot of blood and gore - here's something from the Daily Mail: "With foul language and graphic scenes it is too offensive to post on this websitee [sic]."

It's not too offensive for this websitee though. Here you go.

This song also features a lot of people. Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Bon Iver, and the wonderfully MPD-affected Nicki Minaj. Best lines in the song for sheer absurdity and extremism come from Kanye himself - "Have you ever had sex with a pharaoohh uhh? Put the pussy in a sarcophagus, now she claiming that I bruised her oesophagus" - and Nicki's first line for her part: "Ok, first things first I eat your brains, then I'ma start rockin gold teeth and fangs." Ok, Nicki...

The originality here may be questionable for some, but for me, it's a great way for each of these stars to write some seriously dark, over the top lyrics. It's fun for everyone.
