A tidal wave of humanity spilled into the sold out Forum theater in Los Angeles on Friday to see the premiere of Kanye West’s new video “Famous” off of his new album The Life of Pablo.
The song received criticism from Taylor Swift and her fans after the Chicago rapper claimed her success only came after he infamously snatched the mic from her at the 2009 MTV Music Awards.
While Swift’s camp publicly condemned the lyrics, West and his wife Kim Kardashian claim they have video recordings of Swift giving the song her blessings.
In the video wax dolls of very famous celebrities are partially covered in bed sheets, lying completely still, three minute and 16 second track, and these included West, Kardashian, Donald Trump, Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, Bill Cosby George Bush, Caitlyn Jenner, Rihanna, Ray J, Anna Wintour and Amber Rose.
West previously announced that he chose to release the video in theaters after the success of his The Life of Pablo launch party in February at New York City’s iconic sports venue Madison Square Garden in Manhattan. Both events sold out in minutes.
Here is a portion of the video here with the naked wax figures “unmetionables” covered up:
