Kanye West Challenges Someone to Sue Him Over 'Famous' Video: '#I'llWait'
The rapper seemed surprised at the lack of backlash after the release of his latest music video
The rapper took to Twitter Saturday after debuting his headline-making video, writing, “Can somebody sue me already #I’llwait.”
In the video – which premiered Friday evening via Tidal livestream and at the Forum in Inglewood, California – nude sculptures of celebrities lay in repose under a white sheet in a replica of Vincent Desiderio’s 2008 painting “Sleep.” Stars featured in the bed include George W. Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, West, Kim Kardashian West, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby.
“Special thanks for being famous,” the clip closes.
West explained to Vanity Fair that the video is “not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]. It’s a comment on fame.”
Few of the celebrities featured in the video have commented on their appearances so far. Entertainment Weekly reports that a representative for Bush confirmed that the former president did not participate in the clip and that Jenner’s rep had no comment about the video.
Who Does Kanye West Need to Apologize to This Time?
Brown joked about his likeness in the video, posting a screengrab of the clip on Instagram with the caption, “Why I gotta have plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure?”
Although the rest of the featured stars remained silent about the music video, Swift has already publicly called out West for “Famous,” which includes the line, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that bitch famous.”
Although Swift’s rep has claimed multiple times that she did not approve the line, both West and Kardashian West have stated that Swift was in on the lyrics from the very beginning.
