Kanye West Paid Lana Del Rey HOW MUCH To Perform At Their Wedding?! You’ll Never Believe It!

Take a guess at how much Kanye West paid Lana Del Rey to perform at his and Kim Kardashian’s rehearsal dinner?

If you thought anything below $2 million, you’re wrong! And she actually made more than that!

You may remember that back in November, there was some talk about LDR turning down Ye’s request to perform at their engagement ceremony, until he made her an offer she couldn’t refuse.

The Born To Die singer reportedly performed three songs for a whopping $2.8 million!!!

It’s not clear which songs she sang, but Young and Beautiful was played by the orchestra when Yeezy asked Kim to marry him, so we’re sure that HAD to be one of them!

Regardless, that’s a TON of money to pay on top of the rest of their wedding! It just goes to show that you can’t put a price on love, right?!

    That's total crazyness, if you consider she sang only 3 songs !!!
    I would love to hear and Kardashian's to be spending this sort of money on charity and helping people, who are not as privileged….it would be much better spend money then money spend on singer, who I hardly recognise !!!

    So I see she didn't do it out of friendship. I guess we know why Jay Z and Beyoncé didn't show, they couldn't afford them.

    I personally don't like the couple but LDR is pathetic. She could have just say no again. Singing 3 songs for 3 million? That's a horrible persln

    That's half a million per minute, best job ever! I don't know why everyone keeps looking at the bill, maybe the whole thing was 5 millions, well it's not more nor less than what Justin Timberlake spent on Jessica (I think theirs was 6 millions)….these weddings are free to them, it was not extravagant, mostly it was grandiose, elegant and very touching….they chose the best from the best with very classic designs

    Isn't it kinda sad that Kanye, with all his music industry connections, actually has to pay someone to sing at his wedding. No friends that can sing? None? Not one?

    The queen deserves it. Lana is the best! Everybody's over here like "omg 3 mill for 3 songs?" Well, if I ever got that offered, I wouldn't say no… good choice Lana!

    with all that money PISSED away, there is no doubt he'll say ADIOS to that GREEDY MATERIALISTIC IGNORANT WHORE before the year is up. could you imagine waking up, every day, to that WHINEY MORON?

    Re: annainparis – Grandiose - yes. Elegant - not even close. Very touching - BAHAHAHAHAHA.

    Re: jeanmichelbasketcase – They must know something that you don't (clue? you waste thirty minutes of your day/everyday on them and they will never ever know your usename)

    if someone was that stupid to pay me 2.8 million to sing three songs, I wouldn't be that stupid and turn it down.

    Yikes Perez!! You just lost all credibility in my eyes! E! Network (who obviously works closely with the Kardashian family) reported that Lanas team didn't wouldn't comment and that the wedding in general was estimated at 2.8 million. Whoops!

    Beautiful people with a beautiful baby. Love is costly, but pay 2. 8 for a few songs, that artist is not half that good. If she did not want to sing there she should of said so! What a shame people will and do take advantage.

    The orchestra didn't play "Young and Beautiful" at the engagement they played "Lucky Ones" still by LDR and yes I am ashamed to know this :) … but it's a beautiful song.



  15. 15

    Oly an idiot would believe they spent that much on some D list singer performing 3 songs. This is the kardashians theyre all about making money not squandering $3mill on some 3 song act! Perez stealing unreliable gossip again.

    Re: Lasqueesha – She is not D list. She's one of the most sought after singers in a long time.

    I never was a fan of Kanye or his music, but he seemed to have a large fan base and seemed respected by the music industry. Since he's been with Kim, people seem to want to keep their distance. The fact that he has to overpay Lana Del Rey, tells me that she doesn't respect him. (Too bad she caved for the cash though.) He always seemed so close to Jay-Z, yet doing nothing in the Hamptons was more important.

    That woman can't sing for any amount of money. What where they thinking?

  21. Anonyabusiness says – reply to this

    Umm the whole "you can't put a price on love" would be if they settled for a small little wedding that cost nothing. They don't care about how much they spend because they're probably going to get paid more just by having the wedding. ughh…

    Re: Lasqueesha – People were hating on Lana back when she was on SNL, but she certainly is becoming much more popular. She probably will never get anywhere near as famous as Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, etc., but she's most definitely not a D list singer right now.

    Re: Katie – She's a horrible person for what? You don't know what she's using the money for. For all you know she could be giving it to people that need it. I'm not going to be quick to assume, because I don't know her. I'm just being clear that not all celebrities out there are looking to live in million dollar mansions while not contributing to any type of charity.

    So no story about Kim getting her fat ass stuck between two stalactites in a cave during her honeymoon?

    Re: rosebud99 – Extravagant can be tasteless but grandiose (it goes without saying) is rarely tasteless !!! You kind of just contradicted yourself here. Touching? He is in awe of her…and that's really touching.

    Fake story.

    Re: annainparis – Grandiose implies excessive and pretentious. It can definitely be tacky - not tasteful.

    Re: rosebud99 – Definitely not. Grandiose= royal, solemn, sublime. It's 'imposing' with taste (exactly what Kimye wedding was about), NOT the other way around, not imposing tacky, ostentuous, …..Sorry but grandiose doen't have a negative connotation.

    Lana Del Rey is so not a D-class singer. Her secondary market price for her concerts are higher than Miley and other singers out there. And she's next to Beyonce's market price.

    She didn't force anyone to pay, they** could have said no too and it's their money anyway, stop worrying about people's money and worry about what you can do to help others yourself people.

    Good for her. I say Kanye and Kim are about half as bad as someone like Khadaffi….so 2.8 million seems about right considering!

    Anyways its obvious that Lana is not a friend of the family so why the hell would she do it for free. Kanye probably had to throw in a colleb as well…sometimes you sort of can buy a bit of class….unless you try to buy Queen B (she will just shut you down).
