So who exactly is in Kanye West's 'Famous' vid?

It should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that Kanye West's music video for Famous was going to ruffle some feathers.

In fact, if there isn't a lawsuit from at least one of the parties portrayed in the video, we'll be very surprised. The music video shows a string of celebrities - some real, some not (we can't be sure, to be honest) - lying naked, asleep, in a long bed whilst Kanye West's track, Famous, plays loudly.

The video appears to be filmed on video and regularly jumps and scratches, giving it the appearance of a sex-tape of some kind.

As you can expect, West and his team haven't commented on who's really in the video and who isn't. Moreover, West stresses that the video isn't "in support or anti any of [the people in the video]... It’s a comment on fame."


The video, which is exclusively on Tidal, features George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Ray J (Kim Kardashian's former partner), Amber Rose (Kanye West's former partner), Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby (yes, really) naked and in bed alongside Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West.

While Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West both assuredly appear in the video, it's not exactly known if Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Anna Wintour or Donald Trump are in the video - or, more importantly, if they gave permission for their likeness to be used in such a controversial video.

Either way, it's mission accomplished for Kanye West - people are talking about it.
