But it wasn't for lack of trying - it was lack of funds!
A boy's bar mitzvah is a special day in that young man's life and he deserves for it to be a very memorable day. However, it doesn't have to be a day that costs your dad $1 million dollars for the entertainment, even if your day is Jeff Zucker, former NBC CEO.
Jeff's son had really wanted Kanye West to play at his party on Friday night, but had to settle for Drake when Ye insisted he be paid $1 million dollars for the gig and his father turned the offer down. Still, even without Kanye's melodies, the night was a huge success. We hear Drake was pretty incredible, the food was "tremendous" and as the guest left the swinging back at the Four Seasons, they were each given customized Converse sneakers as party favors.
Sure beats the hell out of LaffyTaffy and sticker books!
