Fresh off the release of his acclaimed new album, ‘Yeezus,’ Kayne will take the stage this year at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on August 25. After his performance of “BLKKK SKKKN HEAD,” Kayne will make history by tying Madonna for the most VMA performances!
Superstar Kanye West is set to perform live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in his record-tying seventh VMAs performance, MTV announced on August 5. With just one more performance, Kayne could dethrone the Queen of Pop! Will Kayne’s baby mama Kim Kardashian be there to cheer him on? Read on for more details!
Kanye West Performing At VMAs — Will Kim Kardashian Attend?
The three-time VMA award winner — and proud new papa of baby North West — has given some of the most triumphant and talked-about performances in VMA history, including the first look at Watch The Throne — “Otis” with JAY Z in 2011; “Runaway” in 2010; “Love Lockdown” in 2008; the Daft Punk-sampling “Stronger” and “Good Life” with T-Pain in 2007; the chart-topping “Gold Digger,” featuring Jamie Foxx in 2005; and his VMA debut with a medley of “Jesus Walks/All Falls Down/Through The Wire,” featuring Chaka Khan in 2004.
We wonder what Kayne has in store for his performance of “BLKKK SKKK HEAD!” Based on the track’s innovative, controversial video, it’s bound to be something spectacular!
Kayne is in good company at the show — Lady Gaga is also set to perform the new single from her upcoming album, ARTPOP.
But will Kim also be there? We told you she has been eager to get out of the house, and this could be the perfect opportunity for the new mom to pop out in style. Perhaps even baby North will hit the red carpet! The VMAs are always good for a few surprises, so anything’s possible!
Kanye West Releases New Music Video For ‘BLKKK SKKK HEAD’
Kayne released his music video for “BLKKK SKKK HEAD” on July 22, and “dark and twisty” doesn’t even begin to describe it!
The video “is a step towards the possibilities of internet based video,” according to the rapper. Viewers can actually take photos during the video, as well as speed up or slow down the video.
The shocking video opens with three hooded figures, whose black robes serve as the backdrop for the video. It then transitions to an animated Kanye moving amidst crazy black-and-white flashing lights. Kanye is shirtless throughout and looks particularly ripped.
One more thing to note: When you hold your cursor over the video, the normal index-finger pointer is replaced by the middle finger. Kanye’s attention to detail on this video is meticulous.
