Kanye West Talks About Taylor Swift in Nightclub Rant


Kanye West delivered a powerful video to hisLife of Pablosingle "Famous" on Friday night at the LA Forum in Inglewood, Calif., featuring naked figures of Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Donald Trump in bed together.

The visuals were an eight-minute short film art piece, voyeuristic and surreal entirely throughout. In it, West is shown laying in bed with his wife Kim Kardashian, Swift, Ray J, Chris Brown, Amber Rose, Rihanna, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Anna Wintour, Trump and George W. Bush, flanking him asleep on each side. All the celebrities are entirely lifelike synthetic bodies.

It's all assumedly post-coital, while shot on VHS video that gives a further sense that you should not be there. They appear to breath gently as the camera moves into their faces and around intimate details of their bodies. The effect of seeing completely realistic famous people — each of which encapsulate a piece of West's celebrity — is deeply satisfying like the accumulation of all the gossip-loving public's dreams come true.

In the piece, a four-minute break comes before the final verse that dragged on uncomfortably in a bizarrely personal moment. The audience is faced directly with Swift's naked body, laying face up with her breasts exposed. That's a controversial artistic decision, especially considering their contentious relationship (or so it seems publicly) and a nod to the most recent provocation of the "Famous" line: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex Why? I made that bitch famous."

Giving thanks for those "supporting ideas and truth," West had one question for the audience: "Would y'all like me to play that back?" Yes, and he did.

After the encore screening, West wasn't done. He turned things into a party, playing some of his songs and then turning attention to his GOOD Music partners, including 2 Chainz and Desiigner, who were both there. Behind the audio and visual equipment, they and many others helped pump things up for a short while before exiting. Desiigner threw money into the audience below, 2 Chainz lit up a blunt, the Game hung out and West looked proudly over the people, having moved them with an impressive new artistic accomplishment.
