Kanye West’s ‘Famous’ Video Is Taylor Swift, Ray J, Kim & More Naked in Bed
Kanye West’s highly anticipated “Famous” video just premiered on Tidal, and it’s basically “The Last Supper” but with 12 ass-naked celebs.
I don’t want to give away too much. If you respect artistry like Yeezy tells you, you’ll close this tab and go watch the video for yourself.
But in case you’re curious and don’t mind spoilers, here are a few choice screengrabs.
The video opens on a sort of modified iPhone background.
Then, we see our celebs. We’ve got Caitlyn Jenner:
George W. Bush:
And that’s just a quarter of the celebs present.
The video, which premiered on Tidal tonight via livestream from the Forum in Los Angeles, ends with a tableau of the stars featured within it, looking just like Jesus and his disciples.
Vanity Fair nabbed an interview and sneak preview of the video, and Kanye somewhat explained himself there.
“It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video],” West said. “It’s a comment on fame.”
The video took three months to film, VF reports, and it’s meant to leave you guessing which celebrities played themselves and which ones are imposters? wax figures? clones? Who the hell can say.
One thing’s for sure, though: that is not the real Taylor Swift snuggled up next to Ye, Kim, and Ray J.
It’s unclear when the video will be available to the Tidal-less public, but for now, we’re just going to be puzzling over WTF it all means. One thing’s for sure: if Kanye’s tour is anything like this it’ll be nothing short of mind-blowing.
