In recent light of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian suing YouTube founder Chad Hurley over leaking their proposal video, more details of Kanye‘s planning process for the proposal have surfaced.

According to, Kanye had asked Lana Del Ray to perform her song “Young & Beautiful” from The Great Gatsby soundtrack, as it’s one of Kim’s favourites. The source told Radar, “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.” We have to agree…a full orchestra is much more impressive than Lana Del Ray, but who knows, maybe she will perform at the wedding.
