According to People : Kanye West has pushed the boundaries of music video visuals, completely.
The rapper debuted the NSFW music video for “Famous,” the first single off his latest album, The Life of Pablo, on Friday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. The presentation, which sold out in 20 minutes on Ticketmaster, also streamed live on Tidal.
Inspired by Vincent Desiderio’s 2008 “Sleep” painting, West literally strips down 12 of the biggest pop culture figures. The video opens with a snippet of Taylor Swift with background audio from the MTV Video Music Awards.
