If you have 34 minutes to spend on Kanye West, then you’re in for a treat. The rapper just released his music video for Runaway, and in true Kanye fashion, he really outdoes himself.

The video, more like a mini-movie, is full of symbolic themes: ballerinas, feathers, and beautiful Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks, who is semi-nude in her depiction of a phoenix who falls to earth.

The hit-you-over-the-head parable is all about the rebirth of West after last year’s VMA incident with Taylor Swift.

There are comets hitting cars, baby deer and sheep, and a giant glowing Michael Jackson head.

In an interview with MTV, Kanye confessed that he wanted to make sure that every girl he has ever dated was somehow represented in his video.

The controversial star has been building up the release of his new album My Dark Twisted Fantasy on Twitter. The fifth studio album hits stores November 22 – check out the banned album cover here.
