Be afraid, Kanye, be very afraid: Rapper collaborates with American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis
When Kanye West decides to collaborate with someone it often garners mixed results.
For every Watch the Throne (his well-received album with Jay Z), there’s a clothing line with APC (plain white T-shirt for £70, anyone?). So what to make of his latest cohort? Novelist Bret Easton Ellis has opened up about the American Psycho spoof promo he wrote for West’s album Yeezus and also revealed that the pair are working on a script together.
Perhaps it’s unsurprising to hear that two such egotistical big-mouths have been drawn together but you do have to question West’s actions. Love him or hate him, the rapper is making some seriously groundbreaking music and is one of the most talked about entertainers on the planet.
Meanwhile, Ellis continues his long stroll towards cultural irrelevance, making one gaffe after another. Since chucking his toys out the pram for not getting the 50 Shades of Grey screenwriting job, he’s insulted Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, and now his new film, The Canyons, is being monumentally slated. Run away fast as you can, Kanye.
