Kanye Debuts New Video for Justice's "Stress"

It's Brand Spankin' New Week over at Kanye West's blog, as the rapper took time from his busy touring and Connect Four-ing schedule to post "Stress," the new video by dance duo Justice. The video is kind of like a real life Grand Theft Auto: random people are harassed, cars are vandalized, street musicians are beat up, cops are fought and Molotov cocktails are thrown by five or six young derelicts wearing jackets donning Justice's crucifix logo. That pretty much sums it up. Watch above.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
