Kanye West and Spike Jonze's 'We Were Once A Fairytale': Sex, knives, and a 'small furry rodent'

West-jonze_l The Music Mix was pretty psyched to learn back in March that Kanye West and Spike Jonze were collaborating on a short film. Well, Kanye dropped by the Los Angeles Film Festival last night to surprise-debut the product of that meeting of the minds, a piece titled We Were Once A Fairytale. Aw, fairytales! Love those. So we’re talking about something from the same general kid-friendly world-of-wonder territory as Jonze’s upcoming Where the Wild Things Are movie, right?

Not exactly. We’ll let the eyewitness report of The Daily Swarm’s Alex Sherman speak for itself:

“In the film, Kanye plays himself drunk at a club acting belligerent and boastful, telling starstruck club-goers that the song playing in the club is his. He wanders into a side room where he encounters a beautiful woman. They start having sex and then he passes out on her leopard print dress. When he comes to, he finds himself in the VIP room with his pants down — he was hallucinating and f—ing the pillow.The realization startles him and he rushes to the bathroom where he vomits what look like rose petals.

“Then it gets weird.

“Kanye finds a bowie knife in the bathroom and cuts into his stomach,spilling a torrent of more petals. He digs in the knife deeper and then with his hand rips out a small furry rodent, like a demon, only it’s quite cute. When Kanye realizes it’s connected to him with an umbilical cord, he pulls it hard, ripping it out of him for good. He then puts the demon on the sink and hands him a tiny bowie knife to fit the critter’s scale who then uses it to commit hari kari.”

Um…wow? That sounds fairly disturbing, and also possibly awesome. Sadly, We Were Once A Fairytale isn’t viewable online yet, but I can’t wait to experience this super-bizarre work of art for myself. I think. How about you?
