As the entire world knows now, Kanye West debuted his music video for The ‘Life of Pablo’ track “Famous” Friday night at an exclusive watch party in LA. The crowd witnessed perhaps the most provocative, controversial music video intro of West’s career thus far, but not the last in our opinion. The Forum event was live streamed via Tidal (The music platform owned by several artists), where the “Famous” visual is now streaming.
Kanye has been taunting the celebrities he mentions in the video… said to be homage to Vincent Desiderio’s painting “Sleep,” to lawyer up and sue him. However, pretty much every single celebrity he mentions (Bill Cosby, Caitlyn Jenner, Amber Rose, Ray J, Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour and former president George W Bush.) has declined to even acknowledge Kanye’s special call out video. Even Donald J Trump has not even acknowledged the video if you can believe that!

ShowbizSpy got in touch with Taylor Swift’s reps who stated: “Again this just shows how Kanye is completely out of touch with reality and thinks he can do and say anything he wants about anybody. Taylor is aware of the video and is exploring her options as to whether or not she wants to move forward with any action. Though I will tell you, she is currently leaning towards not even acknowledging the video, as she understands this is just yet another attempt from Kanye to use a scandal in order to drive sales to Tidal and nothing more.”
We also got in touch with Ray J who we all know is Kim Kardashian’s ex lover, that made her so famous in the first place with the Kim K Superstar sex tape. Ray J says: “That was a great piece of art and I respect Kanye’s love of thinking outside of the box in his work.”
[UPDATE] – In a weird twist of events, Ray J was spotted outside with his manager ‘Wack 100’ by local TMZ paparazzi and asked how he felt about Kanye’s video. Ray J had no comment, but Wack tells it like it is:
Seems like Kanye’s attempt to create a year long buzz with lawsuits may be all for not, as the celebs he was representing in the big orgy are not taking the bait. We kind of figured as much after watching it live in LA. Next!…
