Like everyone in Hollywood, Kanye West has always wanted to direct, and now he has. Check out the premiere of his visually ambitious musical short film Runaway above and read on for more details about his operatic hip-hop mini opus...

Between toasting the D-bags and A-holes and maybe replacing his teeth with diamonds, West has been putting together this 34-minute film to show people that he's not going anywhere!

Runaway tells the story of a phoenix, played by sexy lingerie model Selita Ebanks, who seems to be a metaphor for West's return to the spotlight.

JustJared reports that while discussing the purpose of this film at the New York premiere, West mentioned all the hate he received after his Taylor Swift interruption at the 2009 VMAs. 

"The next day I wake up and people are saying, 'die n-gga die,' only cause you tried to make a change," he said.

"I lost my tour, I lost my clothing line, my mother passed... Even this film was shot down, but we're rockstars– f--ck your opinion. My swag is so one hundred million trillion."

The people have spoken and not only is Kanye currently the trending topic on Twitter, he's also making some new fans!

"@kanyewest you rock kanye.. i wasn't a fan now im a HUGE FAN. BRILLIANT WORK. EXCELLENT. L.O.V.E." Kanye re-tweeted.
