Kanye West is PISSSSSSSSED that his new music video leaked before it was finalized — and now he’s gone public asking for anyone who published it to please please PLEASE take it down.
In case you didn’t know, a very rough cut of the video for Kanye’s new track “Black Skinhead” leaked online today and it’s been spreading like wildfire — but Yeezy insists it got out before it was ready … and the leak is sabotaging the final product.
If you’ve seen the early cut … you can understand what Kanye’s talking about. It’s very rough around the edges … too dark, the CGI is glitchy, you can’t see Kanye’s face … it obviously needs some final touches.
Now Kanye is on Twitter asking for help taking the rough edit off the web — saying, “Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it’s heartbreaking when something like this happens.”
Kanye says the final video will be ready in a Randy Travis has been outfitted with a device that’s considered the “world’s smallest heart pump” … hollywoodinsight.com has learned.
Travis’ publicist, Kirt Webster, tells hollywoodinsight.com … the singer did NOT undergo heart surgery, contrary to reports, but did have an Impella peripheral left ventrical assist device placed in his heart for “stabilization while transferring hospitals.”
According to the company that makes the Impella device, the pump is commonly inserted through a “standard catheterization procedure” — in which the doctor inserts a catheter into an artery in either the arm, groin or neck and send it all the way to the heart.
We’re told the device is considered the world’s smallest heart pump — the same size as a coffee stirrer and smaller in diameter than a pencil.
FYI — according to the Mayo Clinic, a ventricular assist device (VAD) is “an implantable mechanical pump that helps pump blood from the lower chambers of your heart (the ventricles) to the rest of your body.”
Travis’ rep insists the procedure is minimally invasive — and therefore NOT considered heart surgery.
Travis has also issued a statement … saying, “We are very thankful to the fans for their love and support during this time.”
