We all have an escape fantasy.
Every so often — when our lives are particularly crummy — we imagine getting away. Moving to some remote location, finding a guy or a girl there, and living simply. Getting away from all the bullshit.
The video for Kanye West‘s “Bound 2,” which is a totally insane video showing West riding around with a topless Kim Kardashian on a motorcycle through a Lisa Frank desert, is his escape fantasy.
We know this is Kanye’s escape fantasy because he already told us it was. Remember, if you can, back to Late Registration, on the standout track “Gone” when Kanye told us his desire to “get my advance out / and move to Oklahoma and just live at my aunt’s house.” Oklahoma, the desert, isolation…this has been Kanye’s escape fantasy since he first blew up. When he imagined running away from it all, the desert was always his ideal. It’s where he would finally find peace.
