Kanye West Famous video: What does it all mean? All the theories revealed

Kanye's offering is a homage to Vincent Desiderio's painting "Sleep," which according to Vanity Fair "offers a voyeuristic look at an orgy post-coital".  Desiderio is an American painter and sculptor, who currently works as a senior critic at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the New York Academy of Art.

His work is featured at collections in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Museum of American Art, and elsewhere. Desiderio's work deals with perceptions of reality and making the abstract concrete.  "When we make a painting we are building a psychologically charged sensual space of possibilities," Desiderio said in a 2014 interview, "We can build it as a prison or as an observatory.

I prefer the latter." What Kanye said According to Vanity Fair, Kanye spewed the following: “It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]. It’s a comment on fame.”  Kanye also added famous people were begging him to be on the bed - "Guess what the response is when I show it to them?” he said. “They want to be in the bed.” 

Which is a comment on fame - or what Yeezy thinks of fame. On first look, Kanye appears to have 12 of the most famous in the world on the bed. But a closer look reveals some of the figures have enabled others to become "famous".  Ray J - his wife Kim's sex tape co-star. Taylor, Kanye says he made her famous. The list goes on and on. Whereas other figures are political, Bush, or could be charged with changing perceptions - Caitlyn Jenner
