George Bush Confirms He’s Not In Kanye West’s “Famous” Video
Early on Saturday morning (June 25), Kanye West released the controversial video for his smash hit "Famous." Today (June 27), TMZ reports that a George W. Bush representative has responded to the former president's "appearance" in the video.
The Bush rep tells TMZ, "In case there was any doubt … that is not President Bush. He is in much better shape."
In case you missed it, the Chicago rapper's newest music video features 'Ye, Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Amber Rose, Ray J, Caitlyn Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Bill Cosby all naked in a bed together. In a statement to Vanity Fair, Kanye says, "It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]. It’s a comment on fame," he said.
This isn't the first response to Kanye's video. On Sunday (June 26), sources close to Taylor Swift's camp told Hollywood Life that the singer is pissed at her likeness appearing in the "Famous" visual. Of course, she's also the focus of the song's most well-known line, "For all my South Side niggas that know me best/I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous."
Chris Brown also responded to his wax figure's appearance in the video, taking to Instagram and commenting, "“Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure? This nigga KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy 😭😭😭🏆."
Kanye West and George Bush's past beef is well-documented. Keep it locked to XXL to see if more people featured in West's "Famous" video decide to respond.
