See Why Everyone's Talking About Kanye West's 'Famous' Music Video

See Why Everyone's Talking About Kanye West's 'Famous' Music Video

The surprising cameos are hard to miss.

Published June 25th

Kanye West gave his fans a treat last night, dropping the video for his controversial Life of Pablo track "Famous" on Tidal. While premiering it live in Los Angeles, fans who were in the building to catch the exclusive first look saw the rapper's interesting video treatment that has some stratching their heads in confusion and others praising his artistry and boldness.

The clip shows a series of 12 static famous bodies lying very closesly on a bed, and chances are, you know every one of them for one reason or another.

As Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian lie in the middle, to their left and right are several familiar faces, lying naked, only barely covered by a white sheet. They included George W. Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby.

They all appear to be asleep in the clip. You can catch the music video exclusively on Tidal.

In true Kanye fashion, the live video premiere ended up having an encorse screening for $25.

Remember to catch the MC at the BET Awards tomorrow night.
