Kylie Jenner is cast as a golden goddess in Travis Scott’s new video

Travis Scott has enlisted the help of his girlfriend Kylie Jenner for his latest music video.

The 26-year-old rapper dropped the visuals for his latest single Stop Trying to Be God on Tuesday (07Aug18), just three days after the release of his highly-anticipated album Astroworld.

Directed by Dave Meyers, the biblical-themed music video features a star-studded cast including the artist’s girlfriend Kylie, who gave birth to the couple’s first daughter Stormi in February.


The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star makes a cameo as a goddess covered in gold paint at the start of the video, and is later seen again dressed in a high-necked gold sequinned gown at the end holding a lamb who mouths “stop trying to be God”.

The visuals are packed with biblical references from the Antidote rapper, who can be seen walking among sheep, baptising fans who seemingly turn into mini versions of himself and acting as God in heaven while the world goes up in flames.

Musician James Blake also makes an appearance and Kid Cudi can be heard humming as Stevie Wonder plays the harmonica.

Travis took to Instagram hours after the music video was released to share a photo of his smallest supporter, the couple’s six-month-old daughter Stormi, wearing an Astroworld onesie.

“Come home my baby ready to rock and roll. !!!!” the rapper captioned the shot, which omitted the tot’s entire face.

It comes after Kylie also publicly pledged her support for the album on the night of its release by posing in an Astroworld T-shirt on social media, shortly before attending the album’s listening party at Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, where the couple was spotted enjoying a tender embrace on the dance floor.

“You didn’t have to go this hard baby,” the 20-year-old make-up mogul captioned the post. “Astroworld just dropped and it’s the craziest ride of my life.”
