Kanye West may have lost out on a few million by giving Kris Jenner first access to the first pics of North West, but he made up for it by performing at a wedding in Kazakhstan, where he apparently made $3 million at the president’s grandson’s ceremony on August 31. He had to play some of his… less abrasive hits for the occasion, but hey, he cashed in.
Our Central Asian sources tell us … Kanye was invited by President Nursultan Nazarbayev to perform at his grandson’s wedding Saturday night in Almaty at the Hotel Royal Tulip. Very nice.
We’re told Kanye was paid a hefty sum — in the neighborhood of $3 mil — to perform his big hits, including “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”. One of the wedding guests posted this video of KW on stage.
Well, that’s nice, I guess – but what’s with political leaders in that part of the world wanting to pay celebrities to perform at their private parties? I suppose it’s a good deal for the stars because they are basically getting paid over a million bucks an hour, but it all just seems a bit strange.

and they call Kim a whore….lol
Fuck it, $3 million?? I’d sing too, and laugh all the way to the bank. Also, calling a woman a whore is pretty horrible and sexist, just sayin’
You dumb fucks do no that this guy is a dictator who keeps his foot on the throat of his own people. Kanye is a scumbag. What a fagg.
Easy on mireee there anon. She’s probably more versed on world matters than you are…. Celebs have done this shit for years! Mariah, Beyonce, Jay-z, Usher, Lionel Ritchie, Nelly Furtado all played for the Qaddafi family. Hillary Swank went to a birthday celebration for the Chechen dictator Ramzan Kadyrov. Linda Ronstat played in South Africa while Mandela was imprison on Robben Island….. I say fuck ’em all… We all bow to the dollar sign, it’s just a matter of how far you’re willing to prostrate yourself.
Doh…. In prison!
Mireee is right kimcheee, you ought not be calling slut-skanks whores!
uhm willing to be a whore is different from being forced into whoredom.
