Last week, rapper Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian, his girlfriend and the mother of his child (North West – really), by renting out the entire San Francisco Giants stadium and using the scoreboard to say, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” Again, I’m completely serious.
In a move which is truly ridiculous, they are suing Chad Hurley, their videographer, for posting the video of Kanye’s proposal on the internet. Guess why? “Hurley proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else.” That’s what they said. I couldn’t make this stuff up.
So it was a private event, meant to be exploited only by Kim and Kanye? That would appear to be the case, especially in view of the fact that Kim publicized it immediately.
Kim posted this picture on her instagram herself, with the caption, “YES!!!” just after the big event at AT&T Park.
I don’t think romance is dead, but it is certainly sick or injured. Maybe it just has the flu. I can only hope that it recovers quickly, but then, I’m a hopeless romantic.
I wanted to tag this “Marrying Well for Fun and Profit,” but that’s Laura Hile’s domain.
