Not that the world didn’t thoroughly enjoy seeing Teyana Taylor slay the “Fade” video into oblivion, but this might explain why Kanye West chose to remain behind the camera for that particular project. Apparently, Yeezy is so over making music videos that when it comes to being in front of the lens, he’s all the way dunzo.

We’re going to take the liberty of filing music video star under “Stuff That’s So Not Cool, According to Kanye West,” but what gives with Yeezy’s disappearing act? In a video (ha) interview with W Magazine, West explains why he simply cannot with music videos anymore.

Welp, welcome to a new Kanye West era, folks. Clearly, the Kanye-less videos he’s released haven’t suffered at all. While “Famous” only featured his wax figure likeness, it was apparently so intriguing that someone placed it in an art exhibit. We can accept the fact that “Wolves” might’ve been the last time we’ll ever see West in a music video, but we’re secretly hoping he goes the same route with nude celebrity wax figures (sleeping or otherwise) and scary cat faces.
