Author Bret Easton Ellis says Kanye reached out to him to write "pornographic content for 'TLOP'."
It appears Kanye West wanted to make some pornographic videos in support of The Life Of Pablo a couple years ago. Author Bret Easton Ellis revealed in his latest podcast episode that Kanye West had asked him to write pornographic video content for tracks on The Life of Pablo.
Ellis said that Kanye had gotten in touch with him a few years ago in order to make “pornographic videos on tracks he had recorded during The Life of Pablo sessions.” He also added that “Kanye is, yes, a genius, and every hour I spent with him was more than worth it, even if the project never happened.”
While those porn videos never happened, Ellis would go on and say that Kanye recently reached out to him a few months ago about turning a show the two worked on a couple years ago into a movie. Ellis said he wasn’t sure if it would work, but he didn’t want to disappoint Kanye, so he took time out to visit the rapper’s house in Calabasas, California, adding that he felt “hesitant and didn’t know what to expect.”
When he arrived, Ellis says he was ushered into a meeting room where Kanye was busy multitasking, meeting about the movie with several other people he had invited over, overseeing his new fashion line, and about to rehearse new material. “In the five years I had known him, I had never seem him this focused, this together,” Ellis said. He goes on to mention that the Kanye he saw that day suggested ’Ye was “sane, his own man” and not some “drugged-out freak gibbering on Twitter as the media suggested.”
Now of course the pornographic videos never saw the light of day, but Kanye did get rather risqué with his “Famous” music video, which featured a number of life-like wax dolls of celebrities (including West himself, his wife Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift) lying together in a bed naked.
