Kim Kardashian goes topless for Kanye West’s ‘Bound 2’ music video
The clip was premiered on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ yesterday and opens with landscape shots and wild horses running around before Yeezy starts rapping to the camera wearing two plaid shirts and alternately riding a motorbike in a ripped tie-dye top.
Things start to get interesting when his 33-year-old fiancée and baby mama is shown in silhouette on top of the motorbike, appearing to be shirtless and wearing what looks like skin-tight pants and high-heeled boots.
Next you see headshots of the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star, blonde hair blowing around her face and a lovely autumn landscape in the background interspersed with Yeezy rapping and riding his bike.
Kanye then takes Kim for a lovely virtual ride through a valley on the back of his motorcycle, where she appears to have found her shirt. Kim straddles her 36-year-old fiancée and loses her shirt again as the sun sets and the couple start making out with the desert in the background.
For the rest of the video the pair look lovingly into each other’s eyes, occasionally kissing or with Kim reclining over the handlebars of the bike.
The video was directed by fashion photographer Nick Knight and is a love-letter to Kim. Many fans have taken to social media since it premiered to express their outrage at the graphic nature of the clip.
After unveiling the music video Ellen DeGeneres asked Kanye about how having five-month-old daughter North West has changed him.
“Just being super focused. Like even more determined to get these ideas across and establish the exact foundation I want for my family,” he said.
Ellen then asked Yeezy whether he is concerned about how explicit some of his lyrics and videos are now that he’s a father.
“I’m not as concerned about the idea of profanity or nudity, it's more the messaging behind it,” he explained.
“She's gonna be in the real world and she's gonna hear things and see things, and I think she's gonna be prepared for that."
