At the 2016 MTV VMAs, Kanye West was given four minutes to do whatever he wanted. He went a little over his allotted time limit, but for good reason: He premiered the video for “Fade”, the latest single from The Life of Pablo. Starring singer-model Teyana Taylor, the video is essentially a modernized version of Flashdance — but with a very strange twist involving sheep. Watch the extremely NSFW video via TIDAL, or below.
Prior to the video’s premiere, Kanye took the stage at the VMAs and let loose a stream of consciousness that touched on a number of random topics, including the irony of losing to Beyoncé (“Later tonight, ‘Famous’ might lose to Beyoncé but … I can’t be mad, I’m always wishing for Beyoncé to win”), violence in Chicago, and the responsibility of being a celebrity (“We are the influence, the thought leaders”).
