Taylor Swift has kept quiet ever since Kanye West featured a naked version of her in his music video for ‘Famous,’ but one of her BFFs has publicly come to her defense. See what Lena Dunham had to say about Kanye’s ‘sickening’ video right here!
Lena Dunham, 30, is absolutely disgusted by the message Kanye West, 39, is sending in his new music video for “Famous.” The actress took to Facebook to rant over ‘Ye’s decision to feature her BFF, Taylor Swift, 26, among other strong women, naked in the shocking vid — check it out!
“The Famous video is one of the more disturbing “artistic” efforts in recent memory,” Lena begins her post, after confessing her love for Kim Kardashian, 35, and even giving Yeezy credit for usually coming up with some “next level s***.”
“I have to see the prone, unconscious, waxy bodies of famous women, twisted like they’ve been drugged and chucked aside at a rager?” she continues. “It gives me such a sickening sense of dis-ease.”
What really got to Lena, though, was seeing her pal, Taylor, as one of these women. “I don’t have a hip cool reaction, because seeing a woman I love like Taylor Swift (f*** that one hurt to look at, I couldn’t look), a woman I admire like Rihanna or Anna [Wintour], reduced to a pair of waxy breasts made by some special effects guy in the Valley, it makes me feel sad and unsafe and worried for teenage girls who watch this and may not understand that grainy roving camera as the stuff of snuff films,” she explains.
In conclusion, the Girls creator points out that she finds Kanye “cool,” but admits she “can’t watch it” and doesn’t “want to watch it.” “It feels uninformed and inspired by the aspects of our culture that make women feel unsafe even if their own beds, in their own bodies,” she writes. Amen!
For his part, Kanye has explained that the video is “not in support or anti any of [the people in the video]. It’s a comment on fame.” Will Taylor comment next?!
