Kanye West

DISTRAUGHT

Over Leaked Music Video

Kanye West
is PISSSSSSSSED that his new music video leaked before it was finalized -- and now he's gone public asking for anyone who published it to please please PLEASE take it down.

In case you didn't know, a very rough cut of the video for Kanye's new track "Black Skinhead" leaked online today and it's been spreading like wildfire -- but Yeezy insists it got out before it was ready ... and the leak is sabotaging the final product.

If you've seen the early cut ... you can understand what Kanye's talking about. It's very rough around the edges ... too dark, the CGI is glitchy, you can't see Kanye's face ... it obviously needs some final touches.

Now Kanye is on Twitter asking for help taking the rough edit off the web -- saying, "Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it's heartbreaking when something like this happens."

Kanye says the final video will be ready in a week or so -- adding, "To whoever leaked the video ... F*** YOU!"

I don't know quite when people like Kanye West, Kim Kardashian or any other entertainer lose site of what they deliver and start imagining that what they do actually matters (like, say, a surgeon, an airport controller, a bus conductor, a trash collector) ... but they surely do. And next thing, they're ranked right up there with abstract artists ("my artwork of a totally blank page represents all mankind" style), consultants and other people with pointless jobs no-one would ever notice had gone (if they had), let alone miss.

Consider this: IF Kanye West REALLY only cares that the "good" version of this work is seen (as is clearly implied), then ... there really is no problem, he says himself that will be released in a couple of weeks, end of story.

So clearly the creative thing is NOT the problem (so he's lying) ....

No worries, anyone who hooks up with a porn star they saw in a movie and "just had to have" is unlikely to suffer a loss of depth through something like this. Or ever, to be fair. You can't lose what you haven't got, afterall.

"F**k you" is probably not the right way to ask someone to do you a favor and delete your crappy video, you self-important moron.

He doesn't want people to talk to him, ever. I guess it's different when he needs help. I hope his stupid video stays on the internet forever.

He's A Whiner because his hard work was leaked?
He's arrogant and ignorant because he's sick and tired of having cameras shoved in his face?

You commenters on this site are just as ****ing Ignorant as the one they claim to dislike.

See if you like walking down the street having cameras flickering and flashing in your face when all you want is privacy.

*******s.
