As the video for his new song “famous” was released on Friday the 24th of June 2016, the rapper had hoped that the name of the video inspired it to fame. Fast forward and it’s actually the contents of the music video and the lyrics of the song that have touched the heights of fame. The self styled Yeezus released the video on Friday and it left a number of celebrities reeling.
The song Famous shows a number of celebrity wax works naked in bed together. The greatest criticism to the video has come from Taylor Swift who’s nude wax work was shown on the right hand side of a nude Kanye, with the words “that b***h” used for her in the lyrics. Ms. Swift who is hot on her romance with Tom Hiddlestone is not new to treading the war path against Kanye with the pair coming to an altercation back in the year 2009 when Kanye interrupted the star’s acceptance speech by jumping on stage and rudely interjecting that the award should have instead been given to Beyonce.
Kanye West has been his trademark self about this latest celebrity feud with Swift even tweeting only to later delete it how no one has yet sued him for his latest video. In fact according to the other half of Kim Kardashian, he has been getting positive responses from all the celebs that have seen the video….barring Taylor Swift of course.
This celeb feud is nothing new in the eventful life of Kanye West. The singer who is the husband of Kim Kardashian and was previously in news for his bizarre choice of name for his new born son “Saint West” has had a history of getting into bitter spats and feuds with celebrities publically. The singer’s preferred feud destination is twitter where he is prone to come out all guns blazing against fellow celebrities.
Some of the famous Kanye West feuds include those he had with:
- Justin Timberlake over the title of his song “Suit and Tie”
- Taylor Swift as previously mentioned in the 2009 Best Female Video Award presentation
- Wiz Khalifa and later Amber Rose with the former accusing Kanye of stealing the rappers title name for his album.
- Jimmy Kimmel over the comedians sketch based joke on Kanye’s behavior.
In the most recent row that threatens to boil over, Taylor Swift was the first to initiate the feud by claiming that she was never contacted for the video and that she took offence over the use of her wax work and her depiction in the video. Before Kanye could properly weigh into the fight, Kim K came at the forefront to protect her rapper hubby by claiming that Taylor Swift knew about the lyrics and the depiction and gave a go ahead herself.
Taylor Swift’s team has been swift to react back adding that the West Kardashian power couple are confused. As the feud picks up speed, other Hollywood celebrities have started to weigh into the fight and it seems its one fight that is sure to boil over in the coming days…definitely not a first for Kanye.
