Kanye West has reignited his feud with Taylor Swift featuring a look-a-like model is his nearly all nude music video for Famous.

He premiered his latest video on Friday on Tidal and the bizarre NSFW video comprising of dozens of celebrity doppelgangers posing entirely nude on a bed.

It looks his wife Kim Kardashain, Caitny Jenner and Amber Rose are real, but he also hired look-a-likes for Rihanna, Donald Trump, George W.Bush, Kris Jenner and pretty much every other celebrity you can think of.

But the one that has everyone talking is Swift after their he-says/she-says battle over whether or not she approved the lyrics in his song.

"I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous," he raps in the song and soon after its release, the Bad Blood singer slammed him in her Grammy acceptance speech the next day, referencing "people who will try to undercut you along the way".

The rivalry seemed to have simmered until Kardashian brought it up again in an interview with GQ earlier this month, saying Taylor knew about the lyrics before it was released.

"She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't (know about the song)...," Kim told the publication. "I swear, my husband gets so much s**t for things (when) he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved.

"What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval...? (Producer) Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that (conversation) and knew. I mean, he's (Kanye) called me a b**ch in songs. That's just, like, what they say. I never once think, 'What a derogatory word! How dare he?' Not in a million years.

Swift has vehemently denied ever knowing about the song, saying she has only ever once spoken to him on the phone.

"Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single Famous on her Twitter account," a spokesperson for the songstress said. "She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous’.”

"Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place.

"It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term, 'that bitch' in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift.

"Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian's claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone."
