Kanye West - Famous

Kanye West premiered his latest video – for ‘Famous’ – in LA on Friday. And guess what, it’s sparked some controversy.

Intended to be “a comment on fame”, according to West, it features the rapper and his wife Kim Kardashian naked in bed with lookalikes of George W Bush, Donald Trump, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby.

Swift, whose lookalike takes up position next to West, features in the lyrics too, the rapper proclaiming: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous”. Lying by the side of his wife, Ray J is of course the man who stars opposite her in a sextape.

“[I say] a lot of lines other wives would not allow a husband to say,” he told Vanity Fair, when quizzed on getting his wife’s approval for the video. “But my wife also puts up photos that other husbands wouldn’t let them put up. One of the keys to happiness in our marriage is we’re allowed to be ourselves. Our life is walking performance art”.

And to ensure it stayed dead arty, West added that he had worked hard to ensure that there was nothing sexual about the video. “We were very careful with shots that had [something] sexual to take them out”, he said.

You can, or more likely can’t, watch the video on Tidal.
