Kanye West's Truman Show boat has hit the wall, and on the other side of the door is a topless Kim Kardashian on a motorcycle, according to the "Bound 2" video he released Tuesday (Nov. 19) via The Ellen Degeneres Show.
In it, West and his fiancée share kisses and intimate glances whilst she straddles him on a simulated joy ride set in Arizona. Critics are calling it "softcore porn," and tweeters are likening it to an "awkward," "Michael Jackson, Lisa Marie Presley" moment.
Ellen asked outright if he thought it was "dirty."
"I'm not as concerned with the idea of profanity or nudity," West said. "It's more the messaging behind it."
The messaging — assisted by vocals from Charlie Wilson and a sample from the Ponderosa Twins Plus One's 1971 single, "Bound" — includes lyrics like, "All them other n---as lame, and you know it now" and "One good girl is worth a thousand b-----s."
"It's a confident display of love and passion with little to no narrative," wrote Eric Diep, of XXL, about the video.
“She's an important person. When I was at my lowest moments, I could get on the phone with her and she would make me feel like, you know, I was here for a reason," West told Ellen about the mother of his new baby girl. "It's incredible to have a woman like that, that you know is not using you for money."
"Bound 2" is the second official single from 'Ye's Yeezus, which debuted at No. 1 earlier this year.
