Kanye West flooded the global headlines all weekend after exclusively premiering his most provoking work yet: Famous video off his Life of Pablo album. The video depicts naked lookalikes of former US President George W Bush, British editor-in-chief of American Vogue Amy Wintour, Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, Pop singers Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Kanye West himself, his wife Kim Kardashian, Rapper Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlin Jenner and former comedian Bill Cosby lying in one big bed.
The concept of the video premiered at L.A Forum Friday night was a collaboration of different artists which took three months to complete. Vincent Desidairo and Mathew Barney are some of the artists whose work and expertise were fused to create the ‘Famous’ bed.
The ‘cast’ of this video is an array of celebrities West has had some sort of relationship with. Kanye West had no little love for former President George W Bush who he accused on live TV of ”not caring about black people”. He commented “I could have been his O.J. Simpson black friend on the golf course.” Kanye west clashed with America Vogue Editor in Chief Amy Wintour described West’s collection as ‘migrant chic’ after his latest release in April 2016. West has previously worked with pop singers Chris Brown and Rihanna who were entangled in months long scandal after Chris Brown admitted to hitting Rihanna few hours before The Grammy’s. Chris Brown was the first to respond to the video saying ” Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure? This n—a KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy.” The Taylor Swift beef is very much fresh on our minds, the two have been at it for while, Kanye’s provoking lyrics ( I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? / I made that bitch famous) on the ‘Famous’ track attributing Swift’s success to himself further intensifies the case. The beef started when Kanye West snatched the microphone from Taylor Swift at the VMAs. Taylor Swift is reportedly furious over the video and ‘planning something’ in response.
