I don't get the video. What does tribal African dance have to do with Love Lockdown?

The song is hot though.

I have to admit, I am impressed with his style. He actually managed to look chic and sharp and totally himself, unlike the rest of the hip hop community.

i'm thinking the tribal african bit had more to do with the actual music than the lyrics..

the drumming during the chorus has a sort of tribal vibe to it...

yeah I think it's that and could be way off base here, but I think the tribal stuff (at least earlier on) is supposed to represent the repression of love. It is animalistic/tribal/natural/humanistic, and his life is superficial/bare. There is also the white/black contrast. He said the white minimalistic parts were based on American Psycho so again, the idea of the repressed human nature. Anyway, I don't get understand how that translates to the neon bits but :p

the neon bits were just cool and vibrant...
i'm not sure what to make of it either... maybe an explosion of love and energy?

i think your analysis is good and makes sense meg...
it has definitely expanded my interpretation of the video anyway... :p

^^How was the show?

Little gossip from fadedyouthblog:
Quote:
The downward economy is hitting everyone hard ó even Kanye West.

The rapper is reportedly seeking a second job as an intern in London.
After conquering the music world, Kanye is ready on trying his hand out at fashion. In preparation of launching his own fashion line, Pastelle, heís seeking an internship at Louis Vuittonís luxury goods HQ.
ďIím going to go and take an internship and just do something thatís like completely normal, and just rap at the weekends or something,Ē he says.
Say what you will about Mr. West, but you have to admire the manís work ethic!
