Chris Brown has responded to his appearance in Kanye West’s controversial new music video for ‘Famous’.
The video features West and Kim Kardashian lying naked in a bed along with a nude wax model of the R&B singer and several other celebrities.
“Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/ crack showing WAX figure?” Brown wrote on Instagram earlier today (June 25). “This n---a KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy.”

West premiered ‘Famous’ last night (June 24) before a sold-out crowd of 17,000 people at the Forum in Los Angeles.
Whilst the video will be premiering on Sunday (June 26) at 6am on TIDAL, some sneak previews have offered a glimpse into the video's themes.

Opening on a bed spread, the camera appears to reveal the likes of Taylor Swift, Amber Rose, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Anna Wintour, Ray J, and Kanye himself. All naked.
The video's aesthetic is said to be inspired by Vincent Desiderio’s painting 'Sleep'.
West's track 'Famous' caused controversy when it was released on his 'The Life Of Pablo' album earlier this year because of the lyrics: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous."
The rapper has since defended his lyrics about Taylor Swift, saying he is simply "telling the truth". Earlier this week it was also announced that West is to headline a new music festival in New York. Titled The Meadows, the event is being hosted by the team behind Governors Ball and will take place at Citi Field in the Queens borough of the city between October 1-2.
