Kanye’s Provocative Music Video for ‘Famous’ Finds the Artist in Bed with Taylor Swift, Amber Rose, Donald Trump, and Other Celebs


Kanye West debuted his music video for The Life of Pablo track “Famous” during a watch party in LA, now streaming exclusively on Tidal. The video pays homage to American artist Vincent Desiderio‘s painting Sleep, but replaces the slumbering figures with people who have ties to Kanye’s life — including Rihanna, Chris Brown, Caitlyn Jenner, Ray J, Amber Rose, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Bill Cosby, George W. Bush, and Taylor Swift (whose mention in the track caused a serious uproar when it was first released). Oh, and they’re all nude. There seems to be a mix of real-life cameos (apart from Kanye and Kim . . . maybe) and doppelgängers (like Trump). The credits give “special thanks” to every celeb involved “for being famous.” When speaking to Vanity Fair, Kanye explained “it’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]. It’s a comment on fame.” Watch the full NSFW video on Tidal or below.
