Was Kanye West Inspired By Elizabeth Hendrickson's Young and Restless Character?!

Publish date:

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!
