The Kardashian clan klan just can't help themselves. The latest news about the reality TV family is the much anticipated release of Kanye West's new album "Yeezus." To create even more hype around the rapper froth-coming album, Kanye West has released a promo-video starring another Kardashian baby-daddy, Scott Disick. Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend plays Patrick Bateman in the parody of "American Psycho."

Disick is shown wielding an ax, while wearing a clear plastic raincoat and bearing down on Kim's friend Jonathan Cheban. Cheban, the intended victim, sits on a white sofa surrounded by pages of Billboard magazine. Disick has a scary/psychotic monologue while re-enacting the Huey Lewis and the News scene from the film.
While the Disick's appearance is all Bateman, his whiny voice makes the scene more comical than powerful. He asks, "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."
Disick goes on and describes "Yeezus" as "the most exciting record so far." "There's the song 'I'm a God,'" he adds, regarding the album, which drops Tuesday. "The title practically speaks for itself, but of course the insecurities of the mainstream music press will never understand its true meaning because it's about me."
And while the video has garnered approval from "Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis, I'm still a bit skeptical. I have also enjoyed Kanye's over-the-top theatrics. But I think I'm missing the objective here, is "Yeezus" going to brutally murder the musical competition? Or is Scott Disick attempting to branch off into another form of method acting?
