Love is patient, love is kind, love is… a bit weird sometimes, especially when it’s coming from Kanye West. Yeezy shows his strange-yet-beautiful love for fiancée Kim Kardashian in his sexy ‘Bound 2’ video, which perfectly captures the superstar’s feelings for his voluptuous wife-to-be.
We knew we were in for a treat when Kanye West, 36, promised a smokin’ hot appearance from Kim Kardashian, 33, in the video for his love song “Bound 2.” We were finally given that treat Nov. 19, when the very sexual video debuted on Ellen. And despite its inherent shock value, “Bound 2” is actually a sweet, romantic gesture from Kanye — and a huge departure from his typical braggadocios fare.
Kanye & Kim: ‘Bound 2’ Shows Off Their Love
Saturday Night Live‘s recent “Waking Up With Kimye” skit definitely got one thing right: Kanye is absolutely crazy about his lady. “Bound 2” may not feature fun games like “What Kim Made” and “Kim Wore It Better,” but it shows Kim through Kanye’s eyes — and boy, does she look beautiful.
“Close your eyes and let the words paint a thousand pictures / One good girl is worth a thousand b–ches,” Kanye raps as Kim gazes back at him with adoration.
The video, which was directed by Nick Knight — who also helmed Lady Gaga‘s “Born This Way” — may be a bit strange with its boob-heavy imagery, simulated sex and CGI horses, but it also shows Kanye in a way we’ve never seen him before: completely and totally in love! Many of Kanye’s songs (like, you know, “I Am A God”) are all about the man, myth and legend himself, but “Bound 2” is completely about Kim, and it shows Kanye in a vulnerable light that we’ve never seen before. Honestly? It’s pretty refreshing.
Kanye & Kim: ‘Bound 2’ Talks About Their Future
Of course, Kim seems to be just as in love with Kanye as Kanye is with her. While Kanye professes his love with lyrics like “Maybe we could still make it to the church steps,” a female voice purrs back, “Uh huh, honey,” proving that this crazy love is absolutely reciprocal. Maybe gyrating on a motorcycle against a green screen isn’t how the rest of us show appreciation for our significant others, but for larger-than-life figures like Kim and Kanye, it works.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is “Bound 2” a show of love, or does it go too far?
