Would You Book Kanye and Jay-Z for Your Event?

Before you answer this, let's just assume money isn't an issue. Because it is. But don't think Kanye West and Jay-Z are too good for birthday parties. According to The Sun, the "Watch the Throne" duo was paid $6 million to perform a show in Dubai for a girl's sweet 16. That's the equivalent of half a million iTunes album purchases. That's a lot of dough, even for pop royalty.

The Sun reports they actually performed "several sets" to a "packed party," although the details are scarce. The girl they played for is apparently the niece of Sheikh Mansour, billionaire owner of Manchester City Football Club and brother to the current president of UAE, Sheikh Khalifa. It's unclear whether Khalifa is the one whose daughter they performed for, though some sources suggest it was. If you had the dough, would you book Kanye and Jay-Z for your personal party?

    Due to the fact that your forum consists mostly of people of Anglo Saxon descent, I'm not a bit surprised at the response to your polls results. But be assured and know this; the individuals in your polls does not in any way make up the majority of those people from all parts of the world, that like and contribute to the popularity of Kanye or Jay-Z's success or that fills his coffers. It may be that you are in the minority when it comes to people outside of these boundaries. sometimes we may pride ourselves that what we think is all that matters, but in effect; it is just the opposite. That said; Good day.

    But simply because I don't like their music. There isn't any alive singer who I would book for a party. Really. Usher, Rihanna or Beyonce could be on my list, though.

    Rap music is terrible. It's no surprise that the majority of people who listen to it are either young, uneducated, or a combination of both.

    What a couple of slobs. If my daughter wanted that for her birthday...she might just wind up with nothing. Those two are dangerous enough already without someone handing them 3 million each.

    I hate rap. If you want real music and I mean REAL music, try listening to BOTDF or if your not into such sexual songs Lilly Allen, perfect circle, evanescence, the agonist, vocaloid, most songs from other countries, I could go on. But I won't.
