Last week, Kanye West stirred up a lot of controversy with the premiere of his “Famous” music video. The visuals feature many familiar celebrities as wax figures in bed with the super producer, which ruffled up feathers with some big names. One person who was portrayed as a wax figure was Ray J, who is the ex-boyfriend of Yeezy’s wife, Kim Kardashian. While the singer has yet to respond to being included in the video, his manager hasn’t been shy of providing a response of his own.
Kanye West’s “Famous” visuals are stirring up tons of controversy.
The music video was premiered at the L.A. Forum last week, where fans were able to purchase tickets to see it stream in the theater via Tidal. The visuals show West in a large bed, alongside celebrity wax figures of familiar faces that the producer claims have had a major impact on his life. His wife, Kim Kardashian, lays next to him, as the two are surrounded by the likes of Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Bill Cosby, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Amber Rose, and more.
Taylor Swift and Chris Brown have allegedly responded to being included.
While Chris Brown thought his inclusion in the visuals were funny, and treated it in a very light-hearted manner, Taylor Swift reportedly felt differently. According to sources close to the singer, she was “livid” about being in the video, and did not pre-approve it. Many are wondering if `Ye will be hit with multiple lawsuits from some of the names he included.
Ray J was also portrayed in the video next to Kim.
Ray J’s wax figure was also in bed with `Ye, which made sense as he is the one who helped Kim Kardashian initially rise to fame with their joint sex tape together that released in 2007. Since the tape made Kim a sensation all over the Internet, and helped her grow her brand to extraordinary levels today, it helped Kanye to notice her, and eventually pursue her.
