Kanye West’s controversial video for ‘Famous’ has now been released… as a Tidal exclusive.
‘Famous’ is the fourth track on West’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’ album. The album was exclusively released on Tidal six weeks prior to being more widely available on other streaming services.
Now, the video has been released exclusively on Tidal.
The video is 10 minutes and 44 seconds long, and 5 minutes out of the video consists of heavy breathing and nude screen play. In the video, several celebrities including Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Amber Rose, Taylor Swift, Ray J and others can be seen laying in bed, ‘naked’ alongside one other.
But, the celebrities are not actually physically in the video: they are wax-like replicas that look convincingly real.
The social media reaction has been mixed. Many people have dubbed the video as ‘tasteless,’ but some are saying Kanye’s a ‘genius’. Unsurprisingly, not all those present in the video are in favor of the ‘artistic’ choices. Taylor Swift sure isn’t: according to unconfirmed reports Swift is ‘furious’, and now, Ray J has also fired back.
Below are just a few of the responses on Twitter…
