David Lynch Almost Directed the Video for Kanye West’s “Blood on the Leaves”
Yes, you've read the headline correctly. Famed director David Lynch was in talks to direct the music video for Kanye West's Yeezus standout, "Blood On The Leaves." In a conversation with the Daily Beast, Lynch shared that he was in preliminary talks with 'Ye, but that he couldn't find an appropriate idea that would fit the song's energy.
"I didn’t come up with any ideas that I thought he would like. Kanye came up to the house one day. Kanye’s a good guy, and a great musician. I loved the song, and that’s what brought us together, but I couldn’t come up with ideas that thrilled either one of us. I feel I let him down a little bit."
As for why Lynch likes the song so much, he said: "He's just ridin' the wave and not takin' no for an answer."
