Kanye West: 'Power' Video Preview!

Kanye West dons an oversized necklace with a giant pendant in this new still from his upcoming “Power” music video, which will be released next week. (The pendant is of falcon-headed man Horus, an Egyptian deity.)

“[The video is] a very exaggerated hyper-sensational version of what the song is saying,” director Marco Brambilla tells NY Times. “But at the same time, it has this fallibility to it. Because built into the story is that there is an ultimate fallibility, in bringing someone back down to earth at the end of the piece. That kind of contradiction, hopefully, will create the tension within it.”

Yesterday, Kanye joined Twitter and he already has 240,000 friends!

    I’ll be interested to read the lyrics. I did hear him say “in this white man’s word” & I don’t that helps to heal our USA. You can’t blame “the man” when the man is President of the USA.

    We are in the 20th century and people can not do enought research despite all the the resources we have: Those who have study the greek mythology will know the story of “Sword of Damocles”.
    The story
    The Damocles of the anecdote was an obsequious courtier in the court of Dionysius II of Syracuse, a fourth century BC tyrant of Syracuse. Damocles exclaimed that, as a great man of power and authority, Dionysius was truly fortunate. Dionysius offered to switch places with him for a day, so that Damocles could taste first hand that fortune. In the evening a banquet was held where Damocles very much enjoyed being waited upon like a king. Only at the end of the meal did he look up and notice a sharpened sword hanging directly above his head by a single horse-hair. Immediately, he lost all taste for the fine foods and beautiful companions and asked leave of the tyrant, saying he no longer wanted to be so fortunate.

    Dionysius had successfully conveyed a sense of the constant fear in which the great man lives. Cicero uses this story as the last in a series of contrasting examples for reaching the conclusion he had been moving towards in this fifth Disputation, in which the theme is that virtue is sufficient for living a happy life. Cicero asks

    “Does not Dionysius seem to have made it sufficiently clear that there can be nothing happy for the person over whom some fear always looms?” see wikipedia
