Can't say we didn't see this coming. Scott Disick, meet Patrick Bateman. Though Kanye West's new album Yeezus may be "out," it's officially available for purchase today on KanyeWest.com. As a video announcement to hype the release (...as if it needs it?), Kanye teamed up with his baby mama's kinda, sorta brother-in-law, Scott Disick, to recreate a classic scene from American Psycho. Disick, of course, plays Patrick Bateman. Jonathan Cheban -- of Kardashian fame -- plays Paul Allen. The scene in question is the iconic condo discussion of Huey Lewis and the News, except Disick-as-Bateman discusses Yeezy's career as of late.
Truly a role Scott was born to play. Is Disick's voice always that high-pitched, though? Or is that something we can blame on a lot of Bolivian marching powder?
In case you don't understand what he's saying:
"Hey do you like Kanye West? The early work was a little too hip hop for me and my taste, but when Dark Twisted Fantasy came out in 2010 I think he really came into his own, both musically and lyrically."
"Kanye's been compared to Jesus, Hitler, Walt Disney and even Steve Jobs."
"It should be obvious by now that 'New Slaves' is the undisputed masterpiece on Yeezus. A song so catchy, most people wont even remember the lyrics....but they should. Then there's the song, 'I Am A God.' The title practically speaks for itself, but of course, the insecurities of the mainstream music press will never understand it's true meaning, because it's about me!"
"Try getting the Yeezus album now, motherfucker!"
How happy is American Psycho author Brett Easton Ellis? Over a year ago he tweeted about having Patrick Bateman hang out with Rob Kardashian and Scott Disick. Having Scott Disick play Patrick Bateman must be a dream come true for him.
