George W. Bush Responds to Kanye West's 'Famous' Video: I'm in 'Much Better Shape'
You can add former President George W. Bush to the list of people who had something to say about being included in Kanye West's controversial video for "Famous." In the clip, the country's 43rd commander in chief is depicted lying naked in a giant bed alongside 'Ye, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian and a number of other celebs and famous folk.
"In case there was any doubt, I'll state the obvious: That is not President Bush," the former president's communications director and personal aide told Billboard in an email, adding, "He is in much better shape."
The response comes a day after Chris Brown weighed in as well, writing in an Instagram post, "Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure?" Though West jokingly tweeted (and since deleted) on Saturday morning, "Can somebody sue me already?" at press time it seemed like none of the video's subjects (which also included Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Anna Wintour and Donald Trump) have taken any action against Kanye.
The video is available now on Tidal.
