Kanye West had the internet on tilt Saturday morning, after the release of his music video for “Famous” featuring a dozen naked celebrities all taking a nap together in a giant bed. The video — or, “visual,” as he calls it — starred the wax or flesh figures (we may never know which is which) of Taylor Swift, Bill Cosby, Anna Wintour, Chris Brown, Rihanna, George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner, Ray J, Kim Kardashian and, of course, Yeezy himself.
Naturally, the first thought that came to mind when watching the clip was when the avalanche of lawsuits would come down on ‘Ye. It seems, though, he’s prepared for it. In a tweet that has since been deleted, Kanye wrote, “Can somebody sue me already #I’llwait.”
Well, he probably won’t have to wait long. While it doesn’t seem that anybody has served Kanye just yet, the bold-faced names portrayed in his video have remained eerily silent since the clip premiered last night at the Great Western Forum in Los Angeles.
An aide for former president Bush would only tell Us Weekly, “That’s not him.” A rep for Cosby said, “At this time, no comment will be made regarding Kanye’s video ‘Famous.,’” Team Wintour had no comment, nor did a rep for Jenner.
Only Chris Brown had something to say: “Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/crack showing WAX figure?” he posted on Instagram:
Of all the celebs depicted in the video, we are most eagerly waiting to see how Taylor Swift will react. Was she in on it this whole time, or is there another sharp letter heading Yeezy’s way?
