Kanye West appears to already be anticipating controversy over his music video for “Famous,” which features the likenesses of 12 celebrities sleeping nude together, daring “somebody” to sue him following the video’s release.
West tweeted, “Can somebody sue me already #I‘llwait” on Saturday afternoon.
The song comes from his album The Life of Pablo, and includes the nude likenesses of Donald Trump, Taylor Swift, Bill Cosby, Caitlyn Jenner, Amber Rose, Ray J, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Anna Wintour and George Bush.
Chris Brown joked on Instagram saying, “Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure?” He praised West, saying he was “talented, but crazy.”
A representative for former President Bush also confirmed that Bush did not participate in the “Famous,” Entertainment Weekly reports.
West previously drew controversy for his reference to Swift in the song: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b—- famous.” West and Swift both clashed over whether Swift approved the lyrics.
The “Famous” video will be available for Tidal subscribers only for a week, and non-subscribers can see a 30-second preview. See it here.
