Kanye Westâ€™s controversial video for â€˜Famousâ€™ has now been released, as a Tidal exclusive.
Famous is the fourth track on Westâ€™s â€˜The Life Of Pabloâ€™ album. The album was exclusively released on Tidal 6 weeks prior to being more widely available on other streaming services, and 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 consist of heavy breathing and nude screen play. In the video, severalÂ celebrities including Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Amber Rose, Taylor Swift, Ray J and several others, can be seen laying in bed, â€˜nakedâ€™ alongside each other.Â But, the celebrities are not actually physically in the video, they are wax-like replicaâ€™s â€“ that look convincingly real.
The social media reaction has been mixed â€“ many people haveÂ dubbed the video as â€˜tastelessâ€™, but some are saying heâ€™s a â€˜geniusâ€™. However, not all those present in the video are in favour of his â€˜artisticâ€™ choices. Taylor Swift sure isnâ€™t â€“ according to reports she is â€˜furiousâ€™, and Ray J has also fired back.
Below is the response on Twitterâ€¦
