Kanye West Made $3 Million at a Kazakhstani Wedding

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.

From TMZ:

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.
