By Jane Reed

Kanye West never fails to make his mark. Now, his new music video "Famous" has hit a nerve in some areas of the industry. It is highlighted that he is asking for lawsuits after the release of his new music video on Tidal.

The music video features nude celebrities. Though they were not personally represented by these individuals, Kanye West opted for lifelike models. Some took the news lightly. Chris Brown laughed it out on social media. While others, took a different approach. According to reports, West invited celebrities such as Bill Cosby, Taylor Swift and George W. Bush to sue him ASAP.

"Can somebody sue me already," West wrote on Saturday, in a tweet that has since been deleted. "#I'llwait."

Chris Brown laughed at his life-like model, saying "Why I gotta have the plumbers butt / crack showing WAX figure?" He also called West "CRAZY, talented, but crazy." In a humorous way, a representative of former president George W. Bush said that that is not him, in case there was doubt.

It was a controversial video that showed other artists as well. It featured naked celebrities such including Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, Rihanna, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, Anna Wintour and Ray J. Taylor Swift is reportedly horrified by the shot.

West was inspired by the artist Vincent Desiderio. Kanye West got in touch with him and told him that he was a fan of his work. Then fast forward, a risque work of art was born for "Famous" showing all of the aforementioned celebrities on the same bed.

Is Kanye West going to get his career burned by the lawsuits? Some say it will just give his career some unneeded attention boost.

On the lighter side of the news world, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel poked fun by making their own spoofed segments.
