Topless Kim Kardashian Straddles Kanye West on a Motorcycle in the Most Bizarre Video You'll See All Day

The rapper's cheesy new video for the song "Bound 2" leaves us with so many questions...

In case you've forgotten, Kanye West isn't just a hilarious quote machine; he's also a musician! Today, 'Ye is premiering his new video for the song "Bound 2" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. (Yes, the Most Important Artist of Our Time debuts his videos on Ellen. Probably just because Obama was too busy to hold a press conference.) Kim Kardashian co-stars, by which we mean she rides topless on a motorcycle while Kanye raps. Watch it below!

Yep, just two ordinary new parents, getting it on while straddling a motorcycle.

The video is pretty fun to watch, with its color-saturated images of sunsets, horses, and America's national parks. It's like one of those airbrushed posters of unicorns we had on our bedroom walls when we were 12, but with Kimye instead of a magical creature.

There's something that bothers us, though, about the way Kim is shown in this video. For the most part, she's in shadow. Even when the camera is on her, she's often looking away, or hiding behind her hair. Whenever Kanye is in the shot, she's looking only at him. And of course, while Kanye is dressed in layers, Kim is basically naked.

It's not unusual for models in music videos to be photographed like objects. But Kim is Kanye's wife-to-be, and the mother of his child. She's supposed to be the most important woman in his life, but in the video, she's less important than the motorcycle. What gives, Kanye? If this collaboration is a reflection of their relationship, then these two are in trouble.
