Kanye’s ‘Runaway’ Video Will Be 40 Minutes Long

"I'm color-correcting this film I shot in Prague a couple weeks ago," Kanye told the Fug Girls at today's Rodarte show. It's called Runaway and it's a "40-minute noir piece based on his new album." Says Ye: "It's the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend, and people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world. I've been feeling the idea of the phoenix. It's been in my heart for a while. It's maybe parallel to my career. I threw a Molotov cocktail on my career last year, in a way, and I had to come back as a better person." [The Cut]
