'Kardashians' Star Scott Disick Goes 'American Psycho' for Kanye West's 'Yeezus'
Scott Disick is going psycho. But this time, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star (and father to Kourtney Kardashian’s two young children) is doing it all in good fun.
Kim Kardashian’s beau Kanye West enlisted Disick, as well as Kardashian pal and E! personality Jonathan Cheban, for a new video promo shilling the rapper’s forthcoming album, Yeezus. In the clip, Disick channels Christian Bale’s iconic American Psycho character, re-creating the infamous Huey Lewis and the News scene.
“Hey, do you like Kanye West?” Disick asks Cheban. “The early work was a little too hip-hop for me and my taste, but when Dark Twisted Fantasy came out in 2010, I think he really came into his own both musically and lyrically.”
From there, Disick goes on to sing the praises of Yeezus, out Tuesday, dubbing it “the most exciting record so far.”
“There’s the song 'I’m a God,'” he says, wearing Bale’s unmistakable clear raincoat. “The title practically speaks for itself, but of course the insecurities of the mainstream music press will never understand its true meaning because it’s about me.”
And, well, things get bloody from there.
The spoof is a pretty spot-on, if poorly acted, re-enactment of the 2000 thriller, with one laughable tweak: On the floor of the spotless apartment lie pages of Billboard magazine, rather than the film’s newspaper style section.
