Kanye West Releases Music Video for "Famous"

BY GRACE BEAL

Kanye West has released the music video for “Famous”, and people are losing their minds over it.

The video features twelve naked celebrities all laying in bed together, and is referred to as “a comment on fame” by West during an interview with Vanity Fair. West also noted that he was “directly inspired” by a painting from Vincent Desiderio.

The celebrities featured in the video include controversial figures such as Bill Cosby and Donald Trump and also Taylor Swift, who is referenced in the song during a sequence of misogynistic lyrics. Kanye notes that though the video features naked celebrities flung out alongside each other in bed, the vibe shouldn’t be perceived as one that is sexual in nature.
