There's been a lot of Kanye buzz in Boston this week since the hip-hop artist and producer performed a show at TD Garden Sunday night as part of his "Yeezus" tour, with opening act Kendrick Lamar. Kanye's fiance, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, was spotted at the show that was full of elaborate sets, costumes, and outrageous moments.
But today Kanye debuted something that puts Kim in the spotlight more than his own song: the new video for "Bound 2," in which Kim appears topless, seductively riding a motorcycle with Kanye (her nude silhouette is shown rather than a full frontal view). The video premiered on the family-friendly TV talk show "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" with Kanye as the show's guest.
Kim, mom to daughter North West with Kanye, previously revealed on her E! show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," that she wanted to pose nude after getting back in shape post childbirth:
"As soon as I pop this thing out -- as soon as I get in shape -- the first thing I want to do is Playboy or some nude shoot. I just wanna walk down the street fully naked," Kim told her sisters. "I’m gonna be the sexy hot mom.”
What do you think of Kim's role in the video? Should it have been debuted on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" or somewhere else? Let us know what you think in the comments.
