Kanye West and Korn would usually never be put in the same category considering they sit in different genres. However, the California-bred metal band is bringing the ‘Yeezus’ creator into their conversation by showcasing his recent media coverage for their new video ‘Spike in My Veins.’
If you’re wondering why a metal band would do such a thing, Korn wants to bring everyone’s attention to their theory that the government uses celebrities like West, Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber to take our attention away from what President Barack Obama has been doing while in office. Basically Yeezy is being used to fool you, according to Korn frontman Jonathan Davis.
“I think that our government uses those people to detract from what’s really going on,” Davis told TMZ. “The thing with the whole Miley Cyrus stuff at the VMAs, when that went down Obama passed a law that made him basically a dictator. He can imprison whoever he wants. He doesn’t have to charge them, he can hold them as long as he wants.”
The law Davis refers to is the National Defense Authorization Act, which Obama signed on the same day of Miley’s 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance and pointed out that the latter got the most media attention.
While Davis doesn’t comment on his use of Kanye news footage, the video does feature a number of the rapper’s big moments over the past year including his ‘Bound 2′ video, his televised proposal to Kim Kardashian and his fight with a photographer.
The juxtaposition between these clips and videos of the numerous violent protests around the world, Edward Snowden and Obama’s speeches regarding civilian surveillance presents two sides of the news that people see everyday, and this supports the band’s conspiracy theory that we’re more likely to know what celebs are up to as opposed to Obama’s agenda to become America’s dictator.
