Kanye West had proposed to Kim Kardashian while the two of them stood in the middle of San Francisco’s AT&T Park, which he had rented for the occasion. The stadium’s Jumbotron read “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” A 50-piece orchestra played Lana Del Rey‘s “Young and Beautiful.” Such circumstances are the reasons why a YouTube video called “Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Marriage proposal FULL” actually exists.
But if rumors are to be believed, then West thinks the proposal could have been bigger and better: According to UK tabloid The Mirror, the Ultraviolence singer will actually be flown out to Paris for West and Kardashian’s wedding this Saturday, May 24. There, she will be paid a six-figure sum to serenade the newly married couple with “Young and Beautiful.”
“I can’t get this Lana Del Rey song out of my head!” Kardashian had tweeted when she first heard it. She made sure the world knew it, as an unnamed source did for The Mirror. “Kanye knew how much Kim loved Lana’s music, which is why he tried to get her to perform at the proposal,” the source said. “So he upped the offer to perform at the wedding and told Lana that it’s his and Kim’s special song and it would mean so much to have her perform it. She couldn’t say no.” I mean, maybe West just said, “ PLEEEASE!!!”
