Jeff Zucker Couldn't Get Kanye West For Son's Bar Mitzvah

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!

    Old news.
    Shame on Kanye. His arrogance is boundless, and, no, he's not worth a cool million for one night's work.
    Good on Drake. You can always count on a polite Canadian to save the day.

    usually the artist only sing half of a song soooo who gonna pay 1 mil to listen to him sing for a min?!!!



  3. 3

    i'm sure for $1 mill kanye would have been his normally insolent self. all he does is talk during a drum beat. what a talent.
    zucker knows how to spoil his kid well. i'm sure he'll be well adjusted and getting busted with brandon davis in a couple years.

    $1 million to sing a few songs at a birthday party?
    GTFO

    And for those that don't think the rich should be taxed more, this sort of BS clearly shows they are not being taxed enough.
    If you can spend million dollars on a goddamn birthday party for a child, clearly you are not being taxed enough.

    Fucking money hungry, spoiled, greedy jews.

    Jeffrey Zucker was rewarded over and over again, for failing up! Good, that he didn't get something that he wanted and could pay for!!!

    Drake's a better choice. Who knows who Kanye might've grab the mic off of?

    Didn't a bar mitzvah used to have something to do with religion or becoming a man. What the f*ck does Kanye West have to do with that. Maybe he could get the kid laid.

    GTFO! Kanye's arrogance never fails to amaze me. He's not worth a million on his best day in a full on concert. He does nothing but talk in his music, spew hate, and preen his own feathers. I can't stand Charlie-Bat-Shit-Crazy-Sheen, but I'd be more likely to buy a ticket to see him, than I would Con-You West!

    He should of pick Drake for the beginning Drake is way better than Kanye west

    Dear "Parisisburning"

    I saw this post that you made about greedy Jews, and I had to respond. What planet are you from where this is acceptable? I guess the anonymity of the Internet has enabled you to say whatever you want….well it can. I must say that the same voice inside your head ghat told you that this was appropriate, is the same voice that second guesses for you, and makes excuses why you don't get everything in life that you want. I actually feel sorry for you…although I shouldn't.
