It’s been a week or two since Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got engaged, and while they’d like to pretend they’re living private lives now instead of, say, going on Twitter to talk about how much they enjoy sexing each other’s genitals, they’re still pumping out stories about their big publicity engagement. Like this one from RadarOnline about how Lana Del Rey refused to play at their engagement, because apparently even she has standards

Kardashian is apparently a huge fan of Lana’s and is obsessed with her song “Young & Beautiful” from The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Yeezus “asked Lana to perform for Kim at surprise marriage proposal in San Francisco,” a source told Radar exclusively. “Lana politely declined, and didn’t give any reason for not being able to perform. It was a very firm no from Lana and her camp. Kanye did try to push it, but didn’t get anywhere. Kanye decided to hire an orchestra to perform the song for Kim, and he was much happier with how it turned out,” the source said.

Here’s what I love about this: Lana has made a career out of singing about shallowness and superficiality, and the moment she has the chance to sing for what is essentially the epitome of shallowness, she’s just like “You know what? Nope. Not gonna happen.” That’s gotta be the point where Kim and Kanye start questioning whether or not they actually have any depth to them. HA! Nah, just kidding. They probably just wrote mean things about her in their burn book.
