Stars of Kanye’s Famous video not especially happy

Kanye West - Famous

Hey, so that Kanye video‘s gone down well then. Everyone represented in it is dead chuffed that the rapper would consider them for his big budget version of ‘photoshopping heads onto naked bodies’.

Let’s start with Taylor Swift, with whom West had already fallen out over lyrics in the song suggesting that she might have sex with him because he “made that bitch famous”. A source now tells HollywoodLife that she feels “livid”, “horrified” and “betrayed” over her ‘appearance’ in the video, lying naked next to Kanye himself.

A source told the same website that Rihanna wasn’t best pleased either, saying: “Ri doesn’t appreciate laying in the same bed as George Bush or Donald Trump. She’d rather lay next to the devil while drink boiling hot water in hell than to share sheets with either of those two”.

You’d think she might also be angry about her waxwork being placed next to a lookalike of Chris Brown. The former boyfriend convicted for beating Rihanna up and leaving her unconscious in the street merely commented that West is “talented, but crazy”.

Ray J, who ‘appears’ in the video lying next to West’s wife Kim Kardashian was apparently worried about the effect the video would have on his engagement to be married. “My fiancĂ©e tripping”, he told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s all bad in my world, and that ain’t cool. Don’t put me part of nothing that’s weird, that don’t make no sense”.

In case you forgot who he was, there is a sextape online featuring Ray J and Kardashian. And you might think this pop video might be slightly less of a problem than that. His manager Wack 100 certainly thinks so, telling TMZ: “If they didn’t show Ray J with his dick in Kim Kardashian’s mouth, then tell Kanye to go back and reshoot that shit”.

He sounds like a nice guy, doesn’t he? And this seems like an appropriate time to bring in comedian Lena Dunham, who does not appear in the video but is a friend of Swift’s. She described the video yesterday as “one of the more disturbing ‘artistic’ efforts in recent memory”.

“Make a statement on fame and privacy and the Illuminati or whatever is on your mind”, she said, addressing West. “But I can’t watch it, don’t want to watch it, if it feels informed and inspired by the aspects of our culture that make women feel unsafe even in their own beds, in their own bodies”.

Finally, a rep for George W Bush reportedly said: “In case there was any doubt, that is not President Bush [in the video]. He is in much better shape”.
