Kanye West: Here's The Real "Paranoid" Video

Kanye West: Here's The Real

Finally, here is the final version of Kanye West and Rihanna‘s “Paranoid” music video.

It’s much more polished and less gratuitous than the incomplete version that leaked last week.

Kanye had been devastated that fans had been exposed to a “video [that] was not up to my standards.”

Kanye had written, “It hurts me to see the old and very wrong version of the ‘Paranoid’ video get leaked all over the net while I was on an 11-hour flight and couldn’t do anything about it. It’s just frustrating when this stuff happens because I really care about the product and, since videos never get played anyway, you might as well tweak them and make them as special as possible.”

How many times is this guy going to release this video?

# 2

It’s ok, nothing special.

# 3

thriller, much?

mr. west likes to talk about how much of a genius he is. frankly, i enjoy the music he makes and he videos and his style. but it’s all REHASHED. NOTHING he does is original. he is CLEARLY dressing, and making beats and videos straight up 80′s style. i enjoy it, but tone the arrogance down, kanye. you’re just a good imitator, is all.

Not bad, not great — Please post Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi video. It’s fantastic — leak or not.

This video will not get played due to the fact it’s whack!

This one or the one before does not make a difference..

She was dancing to the best of her ability I see though, cause that’s about the best she can do when dancing. Again I say; what was she suppose to do to this video to make it better?

Remember when RiRi was a star?
Now she’s just another video ho.

I don’t believe the original version was “accidentally” leaked. I think Kanye leaked it, like a lot of music labels do to test the waters, but changed it when he released people didn’t like it too much.

^ typo ..realized.

Rhianna has the prettiest eyes daum

Agree with# 4, please give us the Paparazzi vid. It has hunky Alexander Skarsgard from True Blood. Yum!

Yeah, she does have nice eyes, but Rughanna’s hair has got to go. She looks like a shemale with pretty eyes.

It’s more style than substance, just like Kanye.

The beat is catchy. Not too bad, but not too original either.
I would watch this if it came on.

i dont even notice the difference that much tbh
good song, i never pay attention 2 the actual content of music videos
all i want is the music, not the video
idk why he’s in love with trannies
he’s dating 1 and he has another 1 in his video

It looks about the same as the first one.

I don’t see what she added to the video. It looked like she was a little bit mental and spazzing out here and there.

Is that Rihanna? I thought it was one of those dudes from the Single Ladies video.

The video has had as many incarnations as Rihanna’s GGGB album.

Thriller copycat.

I guess it’s ok. Kanye must like butch looking chicks.

the song suits Riri. she was so paranoid over Chris B. that’s why she got beaten up.

beautiful skin but the girl cannot dance.

I don’t see a huge difference between the first version and this one – they both suck. lol
