Kanye West took to Twitter over the weekend to clarify his intentions behind his recent controversial music video for the song “Famous,” which seems to depict a number of prominent celebrities in the nude (though it’s become clear at least a number of them are not the actual celebrities).
After calling the video a “comment on fame,” West tweeted out an invitation for those depicted — including Bill Cosby, Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, and George W. Bush — to sue him immediately.
“Can somebody sue me already,” West wrote on Saturday, in a tweet that has since been deleted. “#I’llwait.”
A few of the people portrayed in the video — with, it’s been speculated, lifelike wax models — have commented on West’s latest attention-grabbing stunt.
In the caption for an Instagram post showing a shot from the video, singer Chris Brown wrote, “Why I gotta have the plumbers butt / crack showing WAX figure?” He also called West “CRAZY, talented, but crazy.”
A representative for former president George W. Bush responded to the video, telling TMZ, “In case there was any doubt … that is not President Bush.”
None of the celebrities featured in the video has sued West yet, despite his request.
