  2. thekiddz August 4, 2010

    Damn. You could warn a brotha’ about the random s** scenes and boobs…Ugh..LOL this looks like it’ll be real good.

  3. kevin August 4, 2010

    THIS LOOKS SICK!

  4. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 4, 2010

    Wow! This looks very visually interesting!

    *Devil Worshipping talk in 5, 4, 3, 2,…..*

  5. alex August 4, 2010

    looks amazing
    the one video that can copete against gagas
    it looks a bit dodgy though with the stanic imagery, sort of like satan saying he has power over civilization…

  6. Nothing But My Opinion August 4, 2010

    This is gonna be crazzy!

  7. MB August 4, 2010

    I try to be a fan of people like him, Jay-Z, and Gaga, but they use too many subliminal messages and imagery that does not sit well with me.

    I don’t care if ppl get mad at me for calling him a “devilworshipper”… I don’t know WHAT he believes but the blasphemy has gotten out of hand.

  8. DC ALL MY LIFE August 4, 2010

    ONE OF THE BEST VIDEO OF ALL TIME. NOT EVEN SEE IT BUT I KNOW IT ALREADY

  9. Tiff August 4, 2010

    I got my holy water…and I aint afraid to use it!!

  10. Nothing But My Opinion August 4, 2010

    @TIFF
    lmaooo!

  11. Topman August 4, 2010

    Haha oh Kanye, you and Gaga really need to rearrange that tour!

  12. Soulful Roses August 4, 2010

    Yeah….Looks Demonic….

  13. bye bye August 4, 2010

    wow he”ll do anything for attention. i used to listed to his music but i stopped a while ago, like a year.

    you would think that someone who almost died would see a certain light.

  14. CLR August 4, 2010

    Is he referring to the fall of an empire due to corruption, deprivation, excess, and degradation? If so, I see where the imagery is coming from. There is nothing new under the sun. All these images are from ancient empires of old such as Greece, Rome, Persia etc. They all fell due to the overwhelming corruption the desire for more and no moral restraint. So it is only fitting that some of these images appear “satanic” bc isn’t that what satan’s about? This will spark major controversy. I know he is using the sword of Damocles which is fitting because he was granted by Dionysus, power, riches, and fame but realized the cost of such things and did not want it anymore. Dionysus is the god of drunkeness, orgies, madness etc…the opposite of the Greek god Apollo which is order, light, music etc. Kanye knows his mythology.

  15. Blasian August 4, 2010

    I’m not feeling this DARK look

  16. Blasian August 4, 2010

    I’m Kanye West his a JERK!

  17. CLR August 4, 2010

    However, with that being said he needs to realize that these mythical gods will not save him. Its cool if used as art and used to portray the message that degradation only destroys but if he is trying to say this is how civilizations should be he is delusional.

  18. Robier August 4, 2010

    OH LORD….. OH YEWAH!!!!!

  19. Myway August 4, 2010

    Don’t care what the haters say, I love me some KANYE WEST …yeah BABY! Please leave Jay-z’s camp soon! THANK YOU!

  20. Hazel August 4, 2010

  28. CIARADABESS August 4, 2010

    Make sure to give the director the credit though, because he’s the one that’s really putting this together.

  29. Tiff August 4, 2010

    I see the Devil is hard at work in these comments sections because there is some powerful deviltry going on here! I dont like it! IT AINT RIGHT!

    Devil I rebuke you in the name of Jesus,allah,Buddah and Beyonce! You can have Rihanna but I will not let you take these innocent kids! They dont know what they do!

  30. CIARADABESS August 4, 2010

    @TIFF excuse me? How are going to judge others and call yourself holy when you are on this blog in the first place. You absolutely makes no sense. WHAT A FAIL!

  31. Tiff August 4, 2010

    @ Ciaradabess

    If you take what I say personally then you need to take a good look at your self hun. Did I say your name? NO. So it is not I that fails…it’s YOU. I will let that marinate

    *splashes Holy water in your face* Good day to you sir!

  32. Beysbetter August 4, 2010

  33. A* August 4, 2010

  34. CIARADABESS August 4, 2010

    @TIFF you’re a joke and obviously you are not headed the right direction with God, since that’s what you seem to be worked up about. But whatever, as I said you are a joke!

    Anyways, cannot wait til the video!

  35. Tiff August 4, 2010

    I will excuse what you said because obviously the devil is speaking through you.
    The joke’s on you sir.

  36. LoveCB August 4, 2010

    LOL @ Tiff. It’s obvious that Tiff is joking! Why are you people getting so bent out of shape geez.!

  37. The AlexanderTG August 4, 2010

    This looks like its going to be a fantastic video – I’ve gotten out of the loop a bit over the last few weeks – been on the road – is the actual vid anywhere to be seen on the net yet?

  38. CIARADABESS August 4, 2010

    I know she is joking and that’s the sad part.

  39. Soulful Roses August 4, 2010

    LOL@Tiff

  40. JAZ0195 August 4, 2010

  41. Mel J August 4, 2010

    love the creativity..like tha fact that kanye stays true to the art of music..

  42. badd August 4, 2010

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO XD @ TIff !!!!

  43. FUTURESTARdelux August 4, 2010

    I DON’T GIVE A F*** WHAT ANYBODY SAYS KANYE IS 1000 TIMES MORE ORIGINAL AND CREATIVE THAN GAGA AND I ALSO THINK HE HAS A MORE REAL APPRECIATION FOR FASHION AND CULTURE THAN HER.

    THIS VIDEO IS GOING TO BE AMAZING AND IF GAGA AN GET 13 VMA NOMINATIONS FOR BAD ROMANCE AND TELLEPHONE THEN KANYE SHOULD BE SMASHING IT WITH THIS NEXT YEAR.

    I’M TIRED OF ALL THE CRAZY PEOPLE ON HERE TALKING ABOUT SATAN WORSHIP ETC AS SOON AS ANYBODY DOES ANYTHING THAT IS REMOTELY “ANTI CHRISTIAN” I BELIEVE IN GOD BUT HISTORY HAPPENED AND THE GREEKS AND ROMAS ETC WORSHIPPED OTHER GODS FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS SO WHAT MAKES THEM WRONG AND US RIGHT BESIDES OUR OWN FAITH?

    YOU NEED TO BE CONFIDENT ENOUGH IN GOD TO LET HIM WORRY ABOUT STUFF INSTEAD OF RUNNING YOUR GUMS 24/7.

    ANYWAY LIKE I SAID THIS LOOKS AWSOME KANYE IS TAKING IT TO ANNOTHER LEVEL.

  44. badd August 4, 2010

    ^^This had nothing to do with GaGa.
    #Sitdown.

  45. Debe August 4, 2010

    Who cares . . Flop.

    Anyway Taylor Swift is back u guys. . .Mine is amazing. I wonder is Kanye West gonna hate on her new single smh. What a d***** lord!

  46. FUTURESTARdelux August 4, 2010

    @BADD GET OF MY F****** D*** B****, I MENTIONED GAGA BECAUSE SHE WAS JUST NOMINATED FOR 13 VMA’S AND IN MY OPINION THIS LOOKS BETTER THAN ANY OF HER VIDEO’S.

    P.S HOW IS A GAGA STAN TALKING TO ME ABOUT MENTIONING SOMETHING THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GAGA? BEEN ON YOUTUBE LATELY, IF A SINGER HAS A P**** GAGA STANS WILL INFEST A VIDEO CLAIMING THEY RIPPED GAGA OFF EVEN VIDEO’S THAT WERE OUT BEFORE HER LMAO.

  47. Tiff August 4, 2010

    ohh you’re mad aint cha! I have some left over holy water *splash splash* you’re welcome!

  48. FUTURESTARdelux August 4, 2010

    THANKS FOR THE COOL DOWN @TIFF, MY POINTS STILL STAND THOUGH ^_~

  49. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 5, 2010

    I think people tend to forget that these people are merely entertainers. I don’t take what I hear or see from these people into my personal life. I listen to some of their music and watch some of their videos but that’s where it stops. I personally don’t believe he’s a devil worshipper or apart of the illumanati, but I don’t know and neither does anyone else who claims he is. If I did believe that he or ANY other artist was, I would definitely not come to a blog where I know he and other artists will be posted about. Why would I watch something that I think is satanic? It’s just illogical. I mean, people who believe so are in the same boat as those who don’t believe it because they watched the clip as well. I go to church, pray to Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and pay my tithes faithfully. And I have enough faith in God to know that if I were to come into contact with anything “satanic” he would provide me with the power of discernment. GOD is more powerful than ANYTHING and that include anything satanic/illuminatist so why would Kanye or anyone else be able to take over MY mind or any other TRUE christian’s mind?

  50. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 5, 2010

    typo *illuminati

  51. TOP NOTCH DIVA August 5, 2010

    Seen alot of these photos & my Humanities class last semester can I say boooooreeing… I was so tired of looking at these nekkid white men with small penises & these white women titts & ass out which make me very uncomfortable with being only a hand full of blacks in the class. I’m tryin to understand how does his song “Power” fit to these images? Hmmm…~kanye shrug~ lol gotta luv Ye’ tho he’s always tryin sumthin new & doing sumthin out-of-the-norm which is quite refreshing to see these days! Can’t wait to see the outcome of the video bcuz I just know it is gonna be a sumthin interesting to see!

  52. S*** August 5, 2010

    @ FUTURESTARdelux

    for the 1st time I AGREE 100% 🙂

  53. S*** August 5, 2010

    The song generally is just OK though.

  54. EXPOSED August 5, 2010

    NOTICE THIS PREVIEW IS NOT KANYE!!! ALL THE CREDIT GOES TO THIS DUDE TALKING, NOT KANYE. THE D***** MYSOGINIST JUST COMMISSIONED THIS GROUP TO CREATE IMAGERY FOR THE VID.

  55. YourMomma August 5, 2010

    DEVIL WORSHIPING??? Some of ya’ll sound like DUMB BABOONS.

  56. QUEEN IN ME August 5, 2010

    @CLR, THANK YOU FOR PUTTING THE REAL OUT THERE I DONT HAVE TO TYPE THAT OUT. DIONYSUS AND CUPID IS ALSO A REFERENCE TO WHEN HE INJECTS YOU WITH HIS BOWING ARROW ALL YOUR SEXUAL, BISEXUAL DESIRES ARE ACTED UPON. LIKE BEYONCE VIDEO PHONE VIDEO SHE WAS THE MODERN DAY CUPID. (DIONYSUS STATUE IS WITH HIM SITTING ON A MAN SHOULDERS, WITH THE MAN TURNED AROUND FACING HIS GENITALS, BOTH NAKED, GO FIGURE RIGHT.

    Thats why the pic depicting this song is a king with his head cut off. Also i feel it also means the rain of terror will soon end and the devil Ahriman which returns every 100 years to cause havoc on earth bringing death, murder, chaos, and anarchy. They will soon be locked away for 10,00 years. Also it ties into their plan with the New world order which has progressed due to the public ignorance, fema concentration camps over 3,000 in America. Micro chips being implanted which is the mark of the beast.(sorry to get of subject as im pretty sure you already know). I hope folks listen and don’t shone people off when they speak the truth. Stay blessed. ps if people would go listen to Lauryn hill cd The miseducation of Lauryn hill songs, lost ones, final hour, superstar, etc and see why see left the industry. Fantasy isn’t reality thats why she left the fantasy.

    This is more than entertainment, this is who the masses can easily be brainwashed without knowing, the devil was the angel of music before kicked out of heaven like a bolt of lighting hence lady gaga (gaga means overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused; senile. .) The devil controls entertainment just check out the vigilant citizen site. Thats why, tv, the news certain songs can control your mood and enhance any feelings your feeling. Music affects your Chakra which is One of the seven centers of spiritual energy in the human body according to yoga philosophy.In Hinduism and Tantra, any of 88,000 focal points in the human body where psychic forces and bodily functions can merge and interact. In Hinduism there are seven and in Tantra four major chakras, each associated with a colour, shape, sense organ, natural element, deity, and mantra. The most important are the heart chakra, the chakra at the base of the spine, and the chakra at the top of the head. Also your vibrations A rapid linear motion of a particle or of an elastic solid about an equilibrium position. This is why we can be controlled because who dont know who to operate our body temperaments.
