with Kanye’s latest video and song, Bound 2. Um first of all, what on earth.. is this even a song? Beat is bad, rhythm sucks, rap is mediocre. There’s nothing good about the song. Then I hear Kim is in the video and I’m excited because I get to see both of them together and they are the main couple in it, etc. La di da until about 1 minute into it, Kim is all caressing Kanye and about 2 minutes in, they’re basically having sex on a motorcycle. And mind you she is completely naked throughout the entire thing.
Ok I get the artistic element that Kanye always like to evoke in his music and his videos. Even his performances and tour is always some deep meaningful thing that no one truly understands, but it’s Kanye so it’s awesome. But this, this is a whole other level of weird and inappropriate.
Kanye preaches he wants to be a private person and hates the paparazzi for being on his back and harassing his family. He fights with different photographers every other day, and then he goes out and releases this “art” with his almost-wife barely covered for the entire world to see. Shouldn’t he be protecting the love of his life and keeping her out of guy’s desires? Shouldn’t he want all of that to himself?
What bothers me most is that Kim is near naked and Kanye is fully clothed throughout the whole thing. If it’s real art, wouldn’t he be half naked too? At least topless? Not that I’m dying to see Kanye without a shirt, but why is it that the women are nude and guys are fully clothed. How is that fair and how does that evoke the message you are trying to portray?
Kanye is known to be the artist who sparks controversy, so his name is written all over this. But I’m just not feeling it. Every 4:14 minutes of it.

I’ve always had this view that married couples are no longer fun. They are so consumed with their new lives, their growing families, and their other issues that they don’t really have much time for anyone or anything else.
I recently met two married couples at two different situations that completely proved me wrong.
One of the couples came out with a group of us in their twenties who was out to have a good time. Though in their 30’s, they had no problem letting loose and just enjoying a nice evening. Their daughter was home with the nanny and it was just them out and acting like a cool 20 year old couple. It was really refreshing.
The other couple I actually only had an encounter with the wife. She was able to have a good time with a group of us without having to be hassled by her husband to come home early. He didn’t actually bother her at all throughout the whole night. There was a level of trust between them. She was able to hang out with guys and he didn’t necessarily have to be there. This was another couple that proved my wrong. They made things work for them.
For some reason I always felt like marriage would sorta ruin a lot of things, but recently I’ve seen that it’s actually going to be a better time. You have a longstanding companion and you still have the time and freedom to do what you used to do.
