When a fan asked the “Archer” actress at Vulture Festival on Saturday about once starring alongside Kanye in a 2004 music video, she responded, “I just want to be very specific, I knew that Kanye. This Kanye and that Kanye, they are two different people. In fact, I think there have been several different Kanyes between.”
She went on to explain that Kanye asked her to be in his “Slow Jamz” music video.
“I had a lot of requirements, like I wasn’t going to be dropping anything down or backing anything up,” she said at New York Magazine’s Vulture Festival panel on Saturday.
The video, which also features Jamie Foxx and rapper Twista, takes place at a house party, where Tyler and Kanye are dancing together. Her one line in the song is when she tells Kanye she needs him to “do it faster.”
“In a very rare, fleeting moment of self-deprecation, Kanye says, ‘I can’t do it faster, but I know someone who can’ and then we both look into the camera in a brilliant breaking of the fourth wall and it’s last time in his life that Kanye’s ever been ironic,” Tyler told the audience.
One of the other panelists then chimed in, “It was Kanye that invented the fourth wall.” Tyler retorted, “He did. That and men wearing skirts, and also self-hate.”
This isn’t the first time “The Talk” co-host took a dig at the rapper. In 2013, she told Craig Ferguson that he abandoned his talent to become “the straight, black Liberace.”
