Kanye West is not gonna let Spike Jonze's short film, "We were once a fairytale," finish.
Just one day after the odd 10-minute opus was released, Chicagoan West pulled the joint from his own site without warning or explanation. The film shows a drunken rapper exorcising his demons as normal people look on.
Sounds familiar for some reason.
The beleaguered rapper debuted the clip on his Web site Monday before removing it. In it, West is shown acting drunk and obnoxious, and at the end of it, he stabs himself with a sword and pulls what appears to be a little mouselike demon out of his stomach. He then gives the demon a sword, and it stabs itself.
A rep for Jonze says the video was made within the past year. West's publicist did not respond to an Associated Press e-mail seeking comment.
