Ladies, Kanye West isn't interested in your mind. Or your soul, for that matter.
A sneak peek at the Kanye West video for his new single “Monster” revealed that there is no place this sick “artist” won’t go. The macabre 30-second trailer shows the rapper making sexual advances to a dead or drugged female corpse in his bed, and several dead, lingerie-clad women are seen hanging with chains around their necks.

The trailer, which is available for viewing on YouTube, has gotten the attention of the Culture for Life Foundation, a “social policy research institute that exists to reveal and present the truths about the human person at all stages of life and in all conditions.” The Culture for Life Foundation has drafted a petition against the official release of the full length video and the petition is sponsored by the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women Australia, Collective Shout, and Adios Barbie.
Dolled up and sexually provocative corpses are plentiful in the trailer and West is seen making sexual advances toward one female in his bed. In the trailer, West moves the hand of one female corpse onto the private parts of another female corpse. He then takes the face of the first corpse and begins to kiss her cold, dead lips.
West has objectified women in his videos before such as the 2005 hit “Gold Digger,” in which attractive young females were seen throughout the video in provocative lingerie dancing around West. But none have gone so far as “Monster,” which sexually objectifies a woman to the point of death. Even the cover art for the single’s release, which depicts an illustrated version of West with a naked, winged Phoenix, caused a stir last year when Wal-Mart refused to stock the album for its “objectionable content.”
West is no stranger to controversy – in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, West, who was frustrated with the federal government’s slow response to the disaster, stated that then-president Bush, “doesn’t care about Black People.” At the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, West stormed the stage during country/pop artist Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video, grabbed the microphone from Swift, and obnoxiously told the audience that Beyonce’s video was “one of the best videos of all time.”
West is a world renown rapper and producer with 5 platinum-selling albums and 12 Grammys to his name.
