Last night, Kanye West shared the video to his Life of Pablo single “Famous,” and it’s about as shocking as any video he’s ever put out. There may not be any verifiable cameos in the video, though it’s filled with a number of wax figures that strikingly resemble some of the more famous persons in entertainment and in politics as well. They’re all naked in a bed together, at the center of which lie an equally naked Kanye and Kim — presumably their real selves (that booty looks familiar). Already, some of the stars whose nude likenesses were used by Kanye have shared their thoughts on the controversial video.
While we eagerly await responses from George Bush, Donald Trump, and Taylor Swift — who, much to her offense, was the sexualized muse of the “Famous” in the first place, Chris Brown has gone on Instagram to comment on the way he was positioned on the bed, with the duvet covering about half of his rear. “Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/crack showing WAX figured?” he asked, seemingly amused.
“This n*gga KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy,” Brown then exclaimed, echoing what seems to be the general reaction to Ye’s latest video.
Both George Bush and Anna Wintour, the editor of Vogue, were quick to point out that they had no prior awareness of the video and that neither of them actually got into bed naked with Kanye.
Do you think any dramatic reactions to the “Famous” video will ensue? Perhaps legal action?
