Kanye West Talks 'Famous' Visual, Invites Lawsuits

Prior to the arena-filling premiere of Kanye West‘s provocative, voyeuristic “Famous” visual, the rapper spoke to Vanity Fair about the video, which features synthetic versions of West and wife Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Donald Trump and more naked in bed together. “It’s not in support or anti any of [anyone in the video]. It’s a comment on fame,” West said of the video.

“Famous” was crafted over three months and was developed with several different collaborators, the rapper admitted. While the “Famous visual” was perhaps most indebted to Vincent Desiderio’s “Sleep” painting, West name-checked another chief influence, saying that visual artist “Matthew Barney is my Jesus.”

Before the Forum premiere, broadcast over a Tidal live stream, West screened the “Famous” video for some of his celebrity pals. “Guess what the response is when I show it to them?” West told Vanity Fair. “They want to be in the bed.”

Considering the uproar over the “Famous” video, even West was surprised by the lack of fallout from the controversial clip: Prolific Twitter user Trump has not commented on his quasi-cameo, while Swift, Amber Rose and Rihanna have been similarly mum on social media. The lack of response had West tweeting Saturday afternoon:

Can somebody sue me already #I’llwait

Chris Brown, however, did respond to the “Famous” video by posting a pair of Instagram photos, first one complaining about the “plumbers butt” on his wax figure and then a Barbie version of the visual:


Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure?. This nigga KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy
