In Touch magazine reports that Kanye shot a video inspired by the early 2000s classic American Pyscho with fellow Kardashian impregnator Scott Disick and Kim’s bestie Jonathan Cheban:
“Kanye spent the weekend shooting an American Psycho-inspired video in Brooklyn with Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban,” an insider tells In Touch. “Jonathan actually gets killed in the end.” The video, which was shot at Brooklyn Fireproof soundstages, is supposed to be released later this week in anticipation of his new album. “Kanye wants the video to go viral and drum up more publicity for his album,” the insider reveals.
Disick of course is the walking embodiement of the immaculately dressed serial killer Patrick Bateman, whom Christian Bale famously portrayed in the film. His resemblance to the character is so similar that he even dressed as the character for Halloween last year and Brett Easton Ellis, author of the book on which the film was based, once suggested that Disick should portray the killer in the rumored remake. And so to cast Disick as a character inspired by Bateman in a video seems a little too on the nose for a Kanye concept, but I guess if anybody can execute the idea it’s Donda’s baby boy. No word on what track the video will accompany.
