If you were wondering why Kanye West hasn’t been up to his regular pace of tweets as of late, it’s because he’s too busy performing in fluorescent suits and working on his Runaway movie, which will be a “40-minute noir piece based on his new album.” Says ‘Ye regarding his film: “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.” We already like it better than Avatar.
