Kanye West has released a music video that features Kim Kardashian nude.
Okay, fair enough. This isn’t very ground breaking. But hear us out…
The rapper unveiled his "Famous" music video at a special event in Los Angeles on Friday night, but it wasn’t the people in attendance that have everyone’s attention today.
It’s the people in the video.
Aside from a naked Kim Kardashian, the footage features naked images of George W. Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby.
And also of Taylor Swift.
Wait… what?!? How?!?
Clearly, most of these celebrities did not actually appear nude in the video.
But Kanye never comes out and tells us which parts of the video can be chalked up to computer graphics and which stars legitimately made a cameo in their birthday suits.
Click on the following photo for an uncensored look at the video:
According to Vanity Fair, the MSFW music video was “filmed over a period of three months and cycled through four different formats and several different collaborators until West felt he’d achieved the result he wanted.”
The magazine adds, via its website:
“[The video] leaves you guessing as to which of the celebrities are really playing themselves and which are presumably only there by the grace of some advanced prosthetic wizardry (will the real Taylor Swift please stand up?)."
The single itself is off Kanye’s "Life of Pablo" album and West says his wife gave him permission to pose in bed with so many other naked bodies.
“[I say] a lot of lines other wives would not allow a husband to say,” Kanye explained.
“But my wife also puts up photos that other husbands wouldn’t let them put up. One of the keys to happiness in our marriage is we’re allowed to be ourselves.”
It seems pretty clear that the artist was inspired by Vincent Desiderio’s “Sleep” painting, which also depicts a dozen people laying nude in bed together, covered only by white bedsheets.
The full “Famous” music video is available to stream on Tidal.
What do you think of Kanye pretending naked Taylor Swift is lying in his bed?
Too funny or a step too far?
