Kanye West might be known for his artistic talent (and inflated sense of self). But today he is literally out of this world. And Katy Perry’s wants him. This morning the remix to the pop songstress’ “E.T.” hit the internet. As soon as Kanye’s spaceship hovers into Katy’s life, she hopes to be the only one he abducts.
Kanye refuses at first, saying his is a life crazier than she can imagine. “Welcome to the danger zone,” he raps. “Step into the fantasy/ You are not invited to the the other side of sanit.y” Katy won’t take no for an answer, though: “[I] Wanna be your victim/ [I’m] Ready for abduction,” she coos on the hook. And of course, Kanye gives in (who wouldn’t?), promising they’ll hit “a bar out in Mars.” Then he’ll “disrobe” and “probe” her. Intense stuff, right?
Like Ke$ha’s now-Andre 3000-assisted single, “Sleazy,” “E.T.” originated as a guest-free album track. But once it became a single, Perry enlisted the services of a top-notch rhymer. It’s a pretty savvy move on her part; the track benefits from a male’s perspective.
What do you think of “E.T.”? Happy Kanye jumped on it? Let us know.
