While most of the celebrities depicted in Kanye’s Famous video are yet to comment on the clip, Chris Brown appears to be pretty fine with it, taking to Instagram to say, “Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/crack showing WAX figure? This nigga KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy.”

Speaking to Vanity Fair about the Famous video, Kanye says the clip is “a comment on fame”, and “not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]”.

West says he also previewed the Famous video for some of his celebrity friends who don’t appear in the clip. “They want to be in the bed,” he said of their reactions.

Kim Kardashian recently teased that Australian dates for Kanye’s Saint Pablo tour are likely to be announced shortly for later this year, which is great news for local fans who are keen to see the internet provocateur couple in person.
