According to TMZ, Kanye took to the stage at the reception of the nuptials held in Almaty at the Hotel Royal Tulip and performed a selection of his biggest hits including 'Can't Tell Me Nothing,' and most likely a couple of cuts from his latest album 'Yeezus.' The website claims Kanye received a whopping $3 million for the short set.
Kanye, 36, isn't the only musician to receive an invitation to perform in Kazakhstan – in 2011, Sting was forced to cancel his show in the country citing human rights concerns. Sting was due to perform in the capital Astana but said he refused to support the country's government.
“Hunger strikes, imprisoned workers and tens of thousands on strike represents a virtual picket line which I have no intention of crossing,” Sting said in a statement.
“The Kazakh gas and oil workers and their families need our support and the spotlight of the international media on their situation in the hope of bringing about positive change.”
The Budweiser Made In America festival is going down and plenty of stars held and are holding fort at Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia. Jay Z is the founder and curator of the event so he was on hand to personally take in acts like A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz and more. Hip-Hop was well represented; besides aforementioned, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Public Enemy and the TDE clique performed. On the R&B side Beyonce closed down Saturday night while her sister Solange and Miguel had their turn on Sunday. Also, it seems like Jay Z likes doing pull ups during festival. Gotta stay in shape, eh. Apparently Wiz Khalifa rides his skateboard while prepping for a show while we are kind of jealous of A$AP Rocky's Supreme tee. Check out photos of the artists before the hit their respective stages (two in total) throughout the weekend

After tormenting the Twitterverse with her twerking routine at the VMAs, Miley Cyrus went right into the studio with Kanye West to record a remix of his song “Black Skinhead,” Page Six has exclusively learned. Cyrus skipped her own VMA after-party at No. 8 and went into the studio for what her reps described as a late-night, “top- secret” collaboration, which sources said was with none other than West. The “Yeezus” rapper was one of the few artists not spotted out at Jay Z and Diddy’s bash in New York, which went into the early hours of Monday. West was also said to have headed straight to the studio after the MTV event at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. We hear Cyrus will appear with West on a remix of “Black Skinhead,” due to be part of a remix EP that will be released later this year. West was due to perform “Skinhead” at the VMAs, but reportedly changed his mind at the last minute to perform the haunting track “Blood on the Leaves,” at which time viewers only saw his enlarged shadow rapping against a backdrop of a forest.
