Kanye filming in Qatar

YEEZY ON A CAMEL? Kanye West has been filming a secret project in Qatar, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Yeezy and his crew were seen late last week filming at the spacious ceremonial court in Education City, a vast complex on the outskirts of Doha, the country’s capital. Students living in the area reported seeing camels and horses on the set, while Twitter was awash with Kanye sightings around town. One source suggested that the Doha Film Institute, the government-backed cultural organization behind such events as the Doha Tribeca Film Festival, was involved. Many assume the video will be in the same vein as 2010’s Runaway" which served as a lengthy art-house teaser video for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. “It’s going to be approximately 30 minutes long, in between a long form music video and short film,” said a source. “Kanye conceived the story, which is set in the Gulf. It’s supposed to showcase the beauty of the region, a piece that’s culturally sensitive and embraces the customs and traditions of the region.” (4/26a)
