Kim Kardashian is completely onboard with being featured naked in Kanye West’s music video “Famous.” The reality star opened up about her husband’s controversial video admitting that she never saw it before it debuted last week, but thought the finished version was “really cool.”
Kardashian told Women’s Wear Daily that she wanted to wait to see the final version of “Famous” because she likes to be surprised. “I actually never saw the final edit of it,” she said. “I did that kind of on purpose because I love to be surprised. It was, like, three, four months in the making, so I obviously knew it was going on, but I didn’t actually see the final cut until he debuted it at The Forum. It was really cool.”
West dropped the video during an event last week in California, which was live-streamed on Tidal for fans who couldn’t attend in person. The video is also available on the music streaming service. In the music video, West is seen sleeping naked in a bed with 11 other celebrities including Kardashian, Ray J, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Anna Wintour, George W. Bush and Donald Trump.
Since the video’s debut, several celebrities have spoken out to share their thoughts on it. Brown was the first to comment, posting on Instagram that he had no problem with being featured. The “Liquor” singer also made it clear to fans that it was a wax figure of him and he wasn’t actually sleeping in the bed naked. “Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/crack showing WAX figure? This n---- KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy,” he wrote.
Ray J, who starred in a 2007 sex tape with Kardashian, also commented on the “Famous” music video, telling “Entertainment Tonight” that he was trying to “stay positive.” He explained: “I’m engaged. My marriage is all messed up ‘cause of craziness. I’m not part of nothing crazy.” The “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star also said his fiancée wasn’t happy West included him in the video. “I walk down a good path. My fiancée tripping,” he said. “It’s all bad in my world, and that ain’t cool. Don’t put me part of nothing that’s weird, that don’t make no sense. Can I grow up?”
