Kanye West Premieres “Famous” Video at L.A. Forum
As previously announced, Kanye West premiered the visual to his The Life Of Pablo single, "Famous", at the L.A. Forum on Friday (June 24).
In addition to those in attendance, fans could see the event streamed live on the Internet, via TIDAL.
The video carries a clear theme: an exploration of the human body... and is definitely NSFW.
It opens with a camera passing over celebrities sleeping in the nude, all in the same massive bed covered with white sheets and pillows. Kanye is placed in the middle, surrounded by the likes of Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Bill Cosby, Caitlyn Jenner, George Bush, Amber Rose, Ray J, Rihanna and others.
The visual was inspired by American realist Vincent Desiderio's painting called "Sleep". The eight-feet high and 24-feet long piece portrays the naked bodies of 12 anonymous people lying on a bed asleep, or unconscious.
