Although Beyoncé is my favorite singer, Kanye West is my favorite artist overall. I just love how creative his lyrics are and I love the creativity of his music videos. He’s also dating Kim Kardashian so that’s a plus in my book as well. My favorite song by Kanye is “Paris,” but my favorite video is “Power.”
The video is only 1 minute and 43 seconds long and is very creative. It is almost like a moving painting that starts out with a close headshot of Kanye and ends with a widened panoramic video of all of the other chaos going on in the “picture.” I love trying to focus on a new part of the painting each time I watch the video to see if I missed something the first time.
If anyone knows me then they would know that my favorite singer is Beyoncé. That being said, the most exciting news I’ve received this year was that she will be performing at next year’s Super Bowl Halftime show! Hopefully she performs new music and I wish it was in Indy again this year so I could go see it in person! Oh well, I guess watching it on television is good enough!
The video I chose to celebrate this upcoming national holiday was for her song “Countdown.” The love the video not just because of its creativity but for the fact that she filmed it while four months pregnant. If she can dance this well with child, I can only imagine how well she will dance without one at the Super Bowl!
