Was Kanye West Inspired By Elizabeth Hendrickson's Young and Restless Character?!
What do Kanye West and The Young and the Restless' Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) have in common? Try the Yeezy track "Blame Game". MTV.com dissected the cut from West's highly-anticipated album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The site claims West's "Blame Game" is the most personal tracks from the album and makes a few references to some of pop culture's trend-setters. According to the site:
Just before Rock's (Chris) cameo starts, West blurts out the name "Chloe Mitchell," which doesn't rhyme with anything and doesn't seem to have much context. A quick search shows that Mitchell is a character on the soap opera The Young and the Restless. According to Wikipedia, Chloe is said to have rejuvenated the dying breed of classic soap opera vixens."
Y&R's snagged some free publicity without even trying to pull a stunt casting!
