    Karen O Loves Kanye West & Missy Elliott

    On Kanye Wests' My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, one of the influences on the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album:

    “It’s so soulful, and I love soul. The vibe lifted me out of the mundane and took me somewhere else, man. And it stuck out like a sore thumb. It’s a work of art. It’s a record. It was a moment of clarity. His signal was crystal clear and we all got it. One of the last records that made me feel that way was Under Construction by Missy Elliott.”
