Kanye West:

Just call him Kanye West, film director.

His short film/music video just debuted…and FYI before you watch, it’s 34 minutes long. Guess we should have expected that as part of West’s infamous comeback.

Seriously, Lady Gaga made a nine-minute music video with Beyonce for her song “Telephone” earlier this year, so Kanye’s automatically had to be bigger and better. The short film stars Selita Ebanks as a phoenix and Kanye himself, as the bird’s keeper.

Kanye believes he is better received by his fans now as compared to last year. "And now it's completely changed and turned around,” he told MTV. “People, it's like they understand me better. They understand that my emotions come from a really honest and true and childlike innocence and honesty. And with 'Power,' I think people were happy to hear a rap song with that level of dynamics when I came back."

Do you agree? What do you think of Kanye’s short film?
