If you were confused by the end of Kanye West's leaked music video for "Feel Me," featuring Tyga, look no further. 

Director Eli Russell Linnetz, who directed the video as well as Kanye's "Famous" and "Fade" videos, exclusively told E! News that the shot of Kylie Jenner seemingly walking out of Kim Kardashian's nether-region is symbolic of her rise to fame. "It features Kylie coming out of Kim's vagina," he explained. "The metaphorical meaning being that there would be no Kylie without Kim."

As Keeping Up With the Kardashian fans know, the family became shot to superstardom following the premiere of their E! reality show in 2007. Of course, at the time, Kim was already a well-known public figure due, in part, from her friendship with Paris Hilton.  

And while Kim may have been the first name fans learned, there's no denying that Kylie has since made quite the name for herself with Kylie Cosmetics.

She established the makeup company in 2014, which led to her billionaire status in March 2019. Aside from her business ventures, her personal life is also a source of public fascination, from parenting daughter Stormi Webster to her romances with exes Travis Scott and Tyga.


That's actually part of the why the "Feel Me" music video, shot three years ago, didn't see the light of day until now. As Eli told E!, "The video was shot over five months but was never released because Kylie and Tyga broke up."

But it was well worth the wait. The video, which cost nearly $1 million to make, is packed with jaw-dropping visuals with the concept surrounding the notion of man versus machine. It's "the visual smashing of American iconography, man made machinery battling man-made women," Eli, who also serves as Lady Gaga's creative director, revealed, "a battle of machines set in a futuristic mysterious magic arena."
