Kanye West’s latest music video has all the characteristics that pertain to him. Featuring nudity, famous people and commentary, it leaves every viewer wondering what the f*ck is up – just think back to “Bound 2” featuring his wife, Kim K, naked a motorbike.
Titled “Famous”, from his latest album ‘The Life of Pablo’, you may have heard the track already.
It’s the one where he (in)famously disses Taylor Swift:
I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,
I made that bitch famous.
Using the title “Famous” as inspiration, the music video features himself, Kim K, Taylor Swift and Rihanna and Chris Brown in the bed with Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Bill Cosby, and George Bush.
As the camera pans across their sleeping faces, you may pick up that they are indeed wax figures, although Kanye has been quiet on exactly how the video was created. The other figures featured are Kim K’s sex-tape partner, Kanye’s ex Amber Rose, and Caitlyn Jenner.
Premiering live on Friday at the Forum in L.A., it was simultaneously streamed on Tidal (owned by Jay Z), the video takes its art direction from Vincent Desiderio’s 2008 “Sleep”.
You can go ahead and watch that video HERE – it does contain a little nudity so you have been warned.
The Daily Beast has more information:
In an interview with Vanity Fair just before the video made its debut, West made clear that the piece is “not in support or anti” anyone depicted, but is instead meant as a “comment on fame.” He also said that he previewed the video for some famous friends who didn’t make the cut. “Guess what the response is when I show it to them?” he said. “They want to be in the bed.”
While Swift (although reports coming in say she is furious) and several others depicted in the video have yet to make public statements, Kanye West tweeted this on Saturday – but it was later deleted:
Lawsuits could be coming Kanye’s way – and Trump and Cosby have a history of suing for defamation. So far, only Chris Brown has responded – you can see his Instagram on the matter HERE.
We eagerly await Trump.
