This Is Why There's a Naked Taylor Swift in Kanye West's New NSFW Video Watch the video for "Famous," which also features naked Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian, and others.
Here's what he did: West put naked effigies of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Caitlyn Jenner, Amber Rose, Anna Wintour, Ray J, Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, George Bush, himself, and his wife in a giant bed.
An homage to the "Sleep" painting by Vincent Desiderio, the bodies—tangled in sheets, their bodies peacefully at rest—are being filmed by an intrusive, voyeuristic third party. It's uncomfortable, shot with a scratchy, dated, night vision camera. It's fascinating: Are any of them playing themselves? Who in this bed is real? It's aggravating. (Bill Cosby? WTF?) But more importantly, it shows our—and West's—obsession with celebrity culture. Even at their most vulnerable, even when we hate them or love them, we can't bring ourselves to look away.
