Kanye West Announces “Famous” Screenings in NYC Tonight

As everyone at this time probably knows, Kanye West unveiled the music video for The Life of Pablo single “Famous” last week in an internet-breaking move that rivals his wife’s legendary reveal of her bare ass. It premiered in typically grandiose Yeezy fashion at an event in Los Angeles, one that hearkened back to his show-stopping performance art/fashion show/album launch at Madison Square Garden in February.

Now Ye’s returning to NYC for some special “Famous” screenings happening tonight.

Specific details of tonight’s screenings are scarce, with the only info being shared on Kanye’s Twitter earlier today. It will make for a great opportunity to see the visual for those that haven’t already, as it is currently only available in full for TIDAL subscription-holders.

“Famous” was making enough headlines on its own for its depiction of nude celebrities, but it has continued to churn controversial press in the days after its release. Just this morning, Lena Dunham posted a scathing letter on Facebook earlier today condemning the video for its depiction of women, and the world waits with bated breath as to the imminent response from current Kanye-feuder Taylor Swift.

For those planning on attending the screenings tonight, be sure to arrive early, as the last time Kanye planned a surprise New York event it shut down an entire city block.

The artist who inspired the “Famous” video has spoken out on his thoughts on the matter, read his opinion here.
