Kanye West’s ‘Famous’ Is on YouTube, So Now Everyone Can Debate Its Naked Merits Again


Hold off on that Tidal subscription — Kanye West’s infamous "Famous" music video is on YouTube. If you’ve been a living human with an internet connection this past week, there’s basically no chance that you’ve avoided the pictures and the controversy surrounding the video, in which a camera pans over a giant bed filled with wax figures of nude sleeping celebrities. Now you can experience for yourself the close-up frames and grainy visuals of the 12 lifeless models — Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Caitlyn Jenner, Amber Rose, Anna Wintour, Ray J, Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, George Bush and, in the middle holding court, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. You’ll have plenty of time to gather your thoughts on each of the public figures, since the camera sweeps slowly over their frames while the sound of nothing but breathing scores the experience for a full four minutes. "Goddamn," for sure.
