Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

To the surprise of absolutely no one, RadarOnline is reporting that Kanye West may be going a bit overboard with his wedding. As in, he’s turning into one big self-serving art piece about weddings, instead of letting it actually just be a wedding. I know, poor Kim Kardashian! I’m sure she wanted an intimate, private ceremony so that she could turn it into a reality TV special. She must be crushed.

“It’s just insane,” a friend told Britain’s Heat magazine. “Kanye has basically billed it as … breaking the boundaries of what to expect when it comes to a wedding.”

“This will be the event of the year,” the friend continues. “Think fashion runway, stage show performance. Think avant grade. Think nothing like you’ve ever seen.” Says the source, “Kanye’s saying ‘This is a concept event based on a wedding.’”

But what about the bride? “He’s sometimes even forgetting to involve Kim in the meetings with the wedding planner,” the insider reveals. “She feels like the whole thing might be spinning out of control.”

You know, I said it before but I’ll say it again: Kim and Kanye really are made for each other. I mean, who else would take what would otherwise be an intimate ceremony cementing two people’s love for each other and turn it into a self-aggrandizing spectacle for attention? Oh, I have absolutely no doubt their marriage will last all of four months, but they really are the best either of them will ever do.
