Lena Dunham Thinks Kanye West’s Creepy Ass Video For “Famous” Is Disturbing

June 27, 2016 / Posted by:

Because of the whole “writing about wooing her little sister like a sexual predator, etc...” thing, you’d think that Lena Dunham would appreciate someone selling disturbing shit as entertainment, but nope! The Taylor Swift squad member watched Kanye West’s creepy naked wax figure sleep study video for “Famous,” and she too wanted to scream for a priest to exorcise the memory of watching it out of her brain. Lena said in a Facebook post that it’s “one of the most disturbing artistic effort in recent memory,” and when Lena Dunham is grossed out by some shit….

Lena writes that in the wake of the Stanford rapist getting a slap on the wrist and the Bill Cosby situation, it sickened her seeing, “waxy bodies of famous women, twisted like they’ve been drugged and chucked aside at a rager.” Lena says she’s into art that weirds you out, but she says Kanye’s brain bleach-needing art felt “different” to her and thinks that besides hurting the retinas of those who watched it, it’s hurting women.

I’m sure that Bill Cosby doll being in the bed alongside Donald Trump is some kind of statement, that I’m probably being trolled on a super high level. I know that there’s a hipper or cooler reaction to have than the one I’m currently having. But guess what? I don’t have a hip cool reaction, because seeing a woman I love like Taylor Swift (fuck that one hurt to look at, I couldn’t look), a woman I admire like Rihanna or Anna, 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 the teenage girls who watch this and may not understand that grainy roving camera as the stuff of snuff films. I hesitated a lot about saying anything cuz I figured the thinkpieces would come pouring in. But I didn’t see this angle being explored as much as I had hoped. It’s weird to feel like you’re watching alone. I bet I’m not.

Here’s the thing, Kanye: you’re cool. Make a statement on fame and privacy and the Illuminati or whatever is on your mind! But I can’t watch it, don’t want to watch it, if it feels informed and inspired by the aspects of our culture that make women feel unsafe even in their own beds, in their own bodies.

Oh, and Lena opened her piece by sticking her tongue way up Kanye and the Kardashians’ b-holes:

Like many pop culture addicted Americans, I wait with bated breath for what Kanye West will do next. Aside from his Twitter mayhem, he has created some really “next level shit” as the kids would say. I could also happily watch Kim Kardashian West chip the paint off a window ledge for hours and be fascinated. I admire that whole family, love the way they depict women as better in numbers and masters of their own destiny. I’d spend all summer at Kamp Kardashian.

You can read Lena’s entire piece here, but if you’re like me, she’ll probably lose you after admitting that she’d love to watch Kim chip off the bronze-tinted wax from Khloe’s silicone-filled window ledge ass. That’s what she meant, right?
