Musician Kanye West is known for producing provocative works. Aside from writing controversial-yet-catchy lyrics for his songs, he’s a trendsetter who comes up with memorable videos.
West certainly shocked a lot of people his song, “Famous.” Its shock value came from the lines referring to pop star Taylor Swift.
Kanye interrupts Taylor's acceptance speech in 2009.
It may be recalled that in 2009, West interrupted Swift in the middle of her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards. Swift had won the award for Best Female Video that year. However, West didn’t think that she deserved the honor. So, West grabbed the microphone from Swift and started saying that he was protesting in support of Beyoncé.
West had declared, “I’m sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.” Swift was left speechless and baffled. The audience, which included Beyoncé, could not believe what was happening.
While critics slammed West for his nasty move, he later claimed that he made Swift famous because of what he did. Thus, in his 2016 song, “Famous,” he wrote these lyrics: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn)/ I made that bitch famous.”
The “Famous” music video features a tableau inspired by artist Vincent Desiderio’s 2008 painting, Sleep.
The "Famous" tableau was inspired by a painting.
The video shows naked wax dolls that look like George W. Bush, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour, Rihanna (who sings the hook for the track), Chris Brown, Kim Kardashian, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Taylor Swift, and West himself all laying naked in bed.
Now, the twelve life-size wax figures of the celebrities in the famous video have been put on display for a so-called “top secret art show” at the contemporary art gallery Blum & Poe in Los Angeles.

We don’t know about the other celebrities, but we can presume that Swift may not be amused by this artistic statement.

The “Famous” video is for adults only.
The video itself was shocking, but at least it only lasted a few minutes. An art exhibit, on the other hand, lasts for days.
