Today’s Lady News: MTV & VH1 Won’t Air Kanye’s “Monster” Video

  • Both MTV and VH1 agreed not to air Kanye West’s music video for “Monster,” which grotesquely eroticizes dead women, despite a new disclaimer about how it isn’t meant to be “misogynist.” I am sure he will find a way to write a song about how he’s been victimized by this. [Adios Barbie]
  • North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue vetoed an awful anti-abortion bill which would have required a woman seeking an abortion to wait 24 hours, receive counseling, and get an ultrasound before she could have the procedure. (Thanks, commenter LR52185, for the link.) [News-Observer]
  • Christine Lagarde, the finance minister of France, was selected to be the first-ever woman to run the International Monetary Fund today. She will replace Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who riddled the IMF with sex scandals and then was forced to step down after he was accused of sexually assaulting a New York City hotel maid. [NY Times]

  • In addition to these cutie-patootie galoshes, Star magazine claims Suri Cruise, age four, has a pair of mini Louboutin heels and several pairs of Marc Jacobs shoes. Let that sink in for a sec. [DListed]
  • Sean Penn allegedly told Scarlett Johansson she better go back to college, take a political science course, and better educate herself if she’s going to speak out about politics. That’s so douchey! I’ve never heard ScarJo say anything dumb about politics. She reportedly got dumped by him, but I’d be willing to bet it was the other way around. [Celebitchy]
  • Kanye West may have defiled the maidenhood of an Olsen twin. Rumor has it he was seen canoodling Mary-Kate Olsen, who is the “bad” one. This would be the weirdest couple ever. [Stuff NZ]
  • “The Undefeated,” a pro-Sarah Palin documentary, is getting a nationwide release. But first it has some salty language in it that needs to be cleaned up first. What would a hockey mom say? [NYMag.com]

Kanye West’s Video Re-Imagined With Real Monsters


I wasn’t as bothered by Kanye West’s video for “Monster” as Jessica, but I think we both would agree that it would have been better if “Sesame Street” Muppets had been involved. Keep reading »

Kanye’s Leaked “Monster” Video: Sexy Dead Girls, Decapitated Heads, And Other Violence Against Women

Kanye West‘s unfinished video for “Monster” has leaked online and it’s a disgusting display of gratuitously sexy dead women. In the opening shot, dead women in lingerie hang from nooses made of chains; the camera lingers on one’s stiletto heels. In a later scene, Kanye lies in bed with two lifeless models, moving one’s hand to her crotch like a rag doll. Later, Jay-Z raps with a woman lying lifeless on a couch behind him, ass up, and the camera lingers on her red patent leather f**k-me heels. But the most disgusting part of the video is when Kanye raps while holding a dead woman’s severed head in his hand. Keep reading »
