(Newser) – Here's something you never thought you'd see: Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, Taylor Swift, and George W. Bush naked in bed together. Enter Kanye West's new NSFW music video for "Famous," which depicts 12 celebrities sprawled out in their birthday suits on a giant bed. Also included are Caitlyn Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, and more. While Vanity Fair implies at least some of the celebrities play themselves in the video, Entertainment Weekly reports most, if not all, were created using “prosthetics and visual effects wizardry.” However, a representative for Bush did confirm that the former president was nowhere near that bed.

In the video, West gives "special thanks" to all 12 "for being famous." The lineup of celebrities includes some controversial names and others who have publicly feuded with West. The rapper says there's no significance to that. “It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video],” West tells Vanity Fair. “It’s a comment on fame.” It seems West expects some of the celebrities in the "Famous" video to get litigious, Time reports. He tweeted—then apparently deleted—"Can somebody sue me already" on Saturday. The video is currently available only to Tidal subscribers, but what appears to be a bootleg version can be seen here (again, NSFW).
