In an interview with MTV, author Bret Easton
Ellis talked about working with Kanye West.
Ellis and Kanye teamed up for the American Psycho
spoof that was used to promote Yeezus.
“I just got a text one day… it said, ‘It’s Kanye, do
you have time to rap?’” said Ellis. “And then
suddenly my phone rang and someone said,
‘Kanye got your number and he wants you to
write this promo for Yeezus.‘”
The spoof starred Scott Disick, who bears a
striking resemblance to the Patrick
Bateman character played by Christian Bale in
the film adaptation of Ellis’ novel American
“I had tweeted many times about Scott Disick
and ‘American Psycho’ and we had gone back
and forth, and so it all kind of just came together
very, very quickly,” said Ellis, who claimed the the
clip was written and recorded in just a few days.
The author also revealed that he’s been meeting
with Kanye about writing a script for him. Guess
we’ll have to wait and find out what the two are
