A day after making headline by debuting a pushing-the-envelope music video for his single "Power", Kanye West hosted a Ustream chat to answer "humanizing questions" from his fans. During the session which was conducted from Korea, he revealed his next studio installment will be released "sometime in November."

Commenting on the 90-second moving painting of "Power", Kanye said he initially wanted to make a mini movie which clocks in around 30 or 40 minutes. After the song leak however, he scrapped the plan and decided to move fast with a new treatment since a lengthy clip might take long time.

But, he is still interested to make a lengthier clip. "We vibed out in my house, and I had all these references of Renaissance paintings," he shared. "I always wanted to re-create the Sistine Chapel. This is not the full re-creation [though]. I still might want to do that."

Now that "Power" has been embraced by music fans, Kanye is gearing to move on with another single. As a follow-up, he will release either "Lost in the World" or "All of the Lights" in about 20 days. He even previewed the latter song.

Outside topic about his new album, Kanye West also responded to people calling him racist. He said, "I actually don't know a rapper before me that liked white people more than me, in all honesty. I don't know a rapper that wore tighter jeans. I don't know a rapper that collaborated with more white people."

"I know what made people put me in a box like that, but it didn't come from a place of racism," he continued, apparently referring to his clash with Taylor Swift at 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. "I won't delve into that, but, I'm in no way am I a racist."

He already moved on and now there is "no more time to be a rude a*shole celebrity." He gushed, "It's about the art. I'm not allowing my attitude to get in the way of my creation anymore. I had to change my attitude completely, and now my statement is only amazing work. That's all I want to do, is give you all the most amazing work possible."

Kanye is an aberration to music and is often distracted by his own tumid ego. See "Let's have a toast for the douchebags" in which he either absolves himself from his bad behavior or wallows in self-pity about people rejecting him due to that bad behavior, I'm not sure which.

"I had to change my attitude completely" in a desperate bid to be taken seriously again by anyone aside from white prep-school gangsta's.
