Kanye West recently outdid his wife by breaking the internet with his latest music video, ‘Famous’. The video, which exclusively released on Tidal after originally premiering Friday night in Los Angeles was West’s attempt to highlight “the pervasive nature of paparazzi culture,” according to Ashleigh Shackelford in an article written for Wear Your Voice.

Throughout the video, close-ups of wax figurines of 12 famous people are sprawled out next to one another naked on a bed, taking a riff from American painter Vincent Desiderio, of those featured were Rihanna, Chris Brown, Caitlyn Jenner, Taylor Swift Bill Cosby and his former ex Amber Rose.

No stranger to criticism, West quickly received backlash from Twittersville for depicting Rihanna next to her former abuser Chris Brown, while Caitlyn Jenner, trans woman laid next to accused rapist Bill Cosby. In February, West was called out for being a rape apologist for showing support for Cosby by proclaiming his innocence via Twitter.

West also publicly slut-shamed Amber Rose numerous times post break-up, once saying his now wife Kim Kardashian-West wouldn’t touch him after dating Rose until he took “30 showers“, and credits himself for Taylor Swift’s success, as referenced in Famous:

“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous.”

Originally from the Bay, I was uprooted from my eclectic surroundings and forced to spend my formative years in conservative San Joaquin County (Stockton) after Loma Prieta. Earthquake central couldn't deter me, and in 2010, I relocated to San Francisco. After a year of not being rich or knowing how to code, I moved to Oakland, where my momma and my momma's momma were born. Oakland has changed A LOT from when I was growing up, and I love getting reacquainted with my roots. Like our city's logo, Oakland grounds me, it's where I've rediscovered myself and unleashed my creativity. If I were a tattoo, I'd be eyes on my eyelids so I can snooze the day without anyone noticing (which I do often.) If I were a street in Oakland, I'd be Skyline Blvd, because, the view. Favorite spot in Oakland? I love it all! But I'd have to say Redwood Regional Park...or Raj Indian in Piedmont.
