Watch a fan-made documentary about Kanye West
Brace yourself for Kanyemania, again. Chicago's most famous rap son hits SNL this weekend, promoting his upcoming sixth solo album, the follow-up to the critically lionized My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The word is the record is a dark and progressive masterpiece with Skrillex and odes to Kim K. Though I love every (musical) thing the guy has made, I remain skeptical. I'm expecting 808s & Heartbreak II: Bass Drops & Teardrops. What I am certain of is that pop music is a far more fascinating and entertaining world with Kanye in it. A new fan-made documentary, Where the Lonely Kids Go When the Bell Rings, confirms this. A montage of studio footage, rants, speeches and interviews, the film assembles common clips from his career into a comically hubristic whole. "Everybody wanted to know what I'd do if I didn't win. I guess we'll never know," he remarked when picking up an early trophy. Ha. Oh, Kanye, don't ever change. Never ever change.
