Kanye West Explains “Runaway” Concept

At the Rodarte Spring 2011 fashion show earlier today, Kanye discussed with  NY Mag his upcoming visual he shot in Prague for “Runaway” and revealed that it will be 40 minutes long. Motion picture shit.

“I’m color-correcting this film I shot in Prague a couple weeks ago. I want to edit the film on a boat. Where are the good editing boats?” — is called Runaway, and is a 40-minute noir piece based on his new album. “It’s the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend, and people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world,” he told us. “I’ve been feeling the idea of the phoenix. It’s been in my heart for a while. It’s maybe parallel to my career. I threw a Molotov cocktail on my career last year, in a way, and I had to come back as a better person.”
