Kanye West begs to be sued for new naked celebrities video – CNET
Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that’s taken over our lives.
If you’re currently eating, may I request you pause?
You see we’re about to discuss Bill Cosby, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Anna Wintour, Ray J., Amber Rose, Chris Brown, George W. Bush and Kanye West.
All in bed together.
This is the scenario of West’s new video for his song “Famous.” It was released by livestream on Friday night and is available exclusively on Tidal for the next week.
You, though, will still be digesting the orgy of luminaries.
Technically, these famous people aren’t real (when are they ever?). These are quite passable effigies of these larger-than-life figures.
Other than West himself, of course, who turns to camera at the end as a title thanks all the people “for being famous.” This presumably includes himself. Sometimes, it’s easier to remember his fame than his music.
The video — which you can gander at here (not safe for work, especially if you work for Taylor Swift) — makes it appear that they’ve all enjoyed either a big orgy together or that they’ve been discussing the ins-and-outs of Brexit, until their brains and bodies could take no more.
Clearly, this wasn’t enough controversy for West. He took to Twitter on Saturday to muse: “Can somebody sue me already #I’llwait.”
His patience ran out fairly quickly, as the tweet has now been removed.
West did not immediately respond to a request for comment but insisted to Vanity Fair that this was art, not smut: “We were very careful with shots that had [something] sexual to take them out.”
On Twitter, however, some mocked West and his wife.
For example, Zakaria Ahmed posted an image of Kardashian staring ahead and the caption: “Kim realizing she gonna lose her fortune after these celebrity lawsuits.”
Giuseppe Anthony offered images of all those depicted, on the phone and the words: “Calling a lawyer.”
Should he indeed get sued, perhaps West can renew his appeal to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for $1 billion.
For him, though, this is all in a day’s work. Controversy doesn’t follow him around. He chases it.
Well, he does at least think different.
