A Hot Mess: Nick Cannon ft. Akon “Famous” (Official Video)

October 14, 2009

Nick Cannon premiered the music video for “Famous” ft. Akon today; a song off his forthcoming album. And truthfully, the video couldn't possibly get any goofier.

In the video, Cannon imitates icons including Michael Jackson, KISS’ Gene Simmons, Fred Astaire, and MC Hammer, as well as those with fleeting fame such as “Bed Intruder” Antoine Dodson and “Golden Voice” Ted Williams.

Cannon's Motive: “I always say, everybody in a nightclub is famous. Everybody getting their shine on, everybody ballin’,” he tells Rap-Up.com. “It’s one of those songs that when it comes on, you can dance like you famous, drink like you famous, party like you famous.”
