West is postponing the rest of his “Yeezus” tour after a 60-foot LED screen used during his shows was damaged. A representative for the rapper says a truck that carried the screen was in an accident Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013, that has “damaged the gear beyond repair.” (Photo by Frank Micelotta/Invision/AP, File)

Utah’s Monument Valley plays a supporting role in Kanye West’s latest music video — though most people will be looking at his fiancee Kim Kardashian’s half-naked body instead.

Geez, between this and the Goblin Valley topplers, haven’t Utah’s red rocks suffered enough?

West debuted his latest video, “Bound 2,” on Ellen DeGenereres’ talk show on Monday. The video (which The Huffington Post featured) starts with lots of outdoor footage, then moves to shots of West riding a motorcycle down Monument Valley with Kardashian sitting on the gas tank facing him, apparently topless. (Don’t get too excited — the camera angles and West’s arms hide her breasts.)

The whole thing was obviously shot in a studio, with the outdoor footage added via a green screen. Gives a new meaning to “rear projection.”
