Kanye West’s naked montage music video “Famous” has yet to draw consequences more serious than some SMDH Tweets from fans. The video featured the likeness of George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian West, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby with West, himself, lying naked together in bed, for what he’s calling “a comment on fame.”
Following his grand reveal at the Forum in L.A. and later online through Tidal, West was waiting for the lawsuits to roll in, tweeting “Can somebody sue me already #I’llwait” on Saturday morning. But perhaps it got a little too real (or he got his wish, 11 times over) as the Tweet was deleted as of Sunday afternoon.
West chatted with Vanity Fair following the video’s Friday reveal, noting he showed friends a preview prior, noting, “Guess what the response is when I show it to them? They want to be in the bed.” He also added his artistic statement was “not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]."
No word on what the penalty for indifference toward celebrities you depict in the nude without their permission, but we guess we’ll find out.
