Love him or hate him, every once in awhile Kanye does something you have to notice—and "Famous," his latest music video, is a super NSFW example of just such a must-see event. Even though his latest album, The Life of Pablo, has been out since Valentine's Day, "Famous" is the only official single and the only video off the album. Although, to say it's a music video of the song would be disingenuous. It's a music video interrupted by 8 minutes of nude celebrity wax figures and at least one if not more actually nude celebrities (heads up: NSFW images below).
Before we get to the "what," let's clear up the "why." As Kanye himself told Vanity Fair, “It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video],” West said. “It’s a comment on fame.” As far as reaction to the video, only Chris Brown has responded publicly (see below), complaining about his plumber's crack. But West says that when he shows the video to his superstar friends who aren't pictured in it, "They want to be in the bed."
