I'm not sure if I should post this thread here or somewhere but here feels right.
Just read about and watch Kanye's latest video 'Famous' the video shows numerous celebs (lookalikes i think maybe cgi) including himself and Kim in bed after an orgy. The celebs in particular that are troubling me though- he's got Taylor Swift next to him and Amber Rose further along. The whole thing is pretty grim but given the lyrics 'i made that bitch famous' and then he's got Taylor Swift just laying there bare breasts- he's violating her publicly.
Horrible

I saw this on Facebook if it's lookalikes does that mean he doesn't need consent of the people they're posing as?

He really is a vile turd.

No you don't need consent to use a "lookalike". If it was actually the celeb's face/picture super-imposed into the video, that would be different.

He tweeted and deleted 'can somebody sue me already' a few hours ago. He's just so transparent but its grim that he targets people like this- and use their celebrity to promote his own work without their permission.
Everyone in that video must feel weird about it though he's used Caitlin Jenner to fgs another family member but its that he seems to continuously target Taylor Swift and Amber Rose with hate then does this that is beyond creepy

Ah thank you for describing it.
I was interested, but unwilling to view it. Oxygen of publicity and all that.

vile turd just about sums him up IMO

I wish I hadn't watched it tbh it's pretty grim all round sad
Sad that someone who has got talent has to employ such shitty publicity seeking tactics to get people interested in his music.

Apparently Taylor is livid. And it was a waxwork. This is from The Telegraph. I know. Sorry!

'American hip hop artist Kanye West's video for his new single Famous is swiftly becoming the most provocative of his career so far. According to sources close to Taylor Swift, reported in Hollywoodlife.com, she is "furious" that the video shows a naked wax likeness of herself in bed with West and his wife Kim Kardashian, along with the sleeping bodies of nine other famous people, among them Donald Trump, George Bush, Bill Cosby, Rihanna, Caitlyn Jenner and Anna Wintour. It is unclear how many of the other figures participated willingly, in the flesh, and how many are synthesised doppelgängers like the wax figurine of Taylor Swift.

The source close to Swift reported: "She feels like she's been assaulted. She knew he was unpredictable but didn’t think he would go so far. She’s strategizing with her team as to what her next move should be. She’s weighing all her options and will then respond accordingly. Just writing a song dissing him isn’t enough payback for something like this."'
