LOS ANGELES, LA – Jesus, Yeezy! We know Kanye West likes to spark controversy, but his new music video “Famous” is begging for it. Mr. West premiered his new video for a crowd of 8,000 people in L.A.

The video goes from a beautiful sunrise, to naked celebrities laying and snoring in bed together real quick.

Donald Trump laying nude next to Taylor Swift?

Rihanna side by side with her ex-boyfriend and abuser, Chris Brown?

Kanye’s ex-girl, Amber Rose sleeping next to Kim K’s ex-man, Ray J?

Caitlyn Jenner? That’s your family, man!

Bill Cosby? Remember, Yeezy thinks he’s innocent.

Vogue editor, Anna Wintour? Is this because she cried at his fashion show?

And wait a minute, George Bush? Who could forget when West said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”.

The naked celebs, made of wax, are mimicking artist Vicent Desiderio’s 2008 painting, “Sleep.” West told Vanity Fair the video is a comment on fame.

In the video, Kanye West thanks all the celebrities whose naked bods he put on display for nothing other than “being famous.”

So far, no reactions from any of the celebrities features, except Chris Brown.  C-Breezy took to Instagram saying “Why I gotta have the plumber’s butt.”

Kanye tweeted and later deleted: “Can somebody sue me already? #i’llwait!”

Any bets on who the first to try and take down Yeezy is going to be?

Our money is on T-Swift, because we know she is not about the “bad blood.”
