Looks like we weren’t the only ones expecting more of a fallout from Kanye West’s insane “Famous” video! The rapper himself is apparently stunned that no one has yet spoken out against his work — at least as far as its “stars” are concerned — or better yet, sued him.
Kanye took to social media this morning practically begging for someone to notice his antics, tweeting “Can somebody sue me already? #I’llwait.”
Wow! It’s slightly unclear if Kanye is being facetious here, knowing the giant can of worms he’s likely opened, or if he’s genuinely nervous and/or trolling for attention.
Either way, we’re not so sure that inviting more drama is your best move right now, ‘Ye.
Though he has spoken to Vanity Fair to say that the video was not intentionally malicious (“It’s not in support or anti [any of the people in the video]… It’s a comment on fame”), it’s clear he’s at least self-aware enough to expect backlash on some level.
In a very un-Kanye-like move, he also had the foresight to delete the Tweet from his account (though it lives still on the Internet). Maybe let the air clear a bit before looking for more (legal) troubles, mmm?
Oh, Kanye. Whatever are we going to do with you?
Do you think Kanye is desperately pandering for attention? Let us know over @BritandCo.
