Kanye West debuted the music video for “Famous,” the first single off his latest album, The Life of Pablo, on Friday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. The event sold out in 20 minutes on Ticketmaster and it streamed live exclusively on Tidal.
The video is inspired by Vincent Desiderio’s 2008 “Sleep” painting, Ye strips down 12 of the biggest pop culture figures — some who were involved in the biggest media scandals ever.
From left to right he has George Bush, Ana Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, Ray J, Caitlyn Jenner & Bill Cosby.
It’s a simple and very direct video, it’s doing exactly what it is supposed to – garner attention.
Celebrities were in attendance joining Kanye for his, his wife Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Rick Rubin, Scott Disick, French Montana, Desiigner, Travis Scott, Che Pope, The Game, 2 Chainz, Yo Gotti and Post Malone.
