Kanye West explains concept behind controversial ‘Famous’ video

A number of very famous figures are shown lying together naked in Kanye West’s provocative new ‘Famous’ video, which premiered on Friday night, June 24 and, according to the rapper, plenty of other celebrities told him ‘they want to be in the bed’ when he showed them a preview of the visual.

‘It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video],’ West, speaking to Vanity Fair, said of the video, which was worked on with various collaborators and took three months to complete. ‘It’s a comment on fame.’
‘Maybe in some alternative universe me and George Bush could have been friends,’ he commented. ‘I could have been his O.J. Simpson black friend on the golf course.’
Of the visual’s artistic inspiration, West who, according to Thenetng findings, claims he was inspired by American realist painter Vincent Desiderio – added: ‘Matthew Barney is my Jesus.’
Despite the nudity featured in his ‘Famous’ video, the rapper says he was ‘very careful with shots that had [something] sexual to take them out.’
On Saturday morning, West joked, ‘Can somebody sue me already’ along with the hashtag #I’llwait. He has since deleted that tweet.
‘Famous,’ is a single off of West’s The Life of Pablo album, which features a controversial reference to Taylor Swift in its lyrics.
