Kanye West scored a major payday over the weekend. The hip-hop mogul traveled to Kazakhstan to perform at a private wedding. According to TMZ, West was invited by President Nursultan Nazarbayev to provide the entertainment at his grandson’s wedding Saturday night at Almaty’s Hotel Royal Tulip. He was reportedly paid around $3 million to perform his biggest hits including “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.” Guests took photos in front and with Yeezus, posting the footage on Instagram.
Nazarbayev, who is considered by some to be a dictator, is reportedly worth billions and has stirred controversy for human rights violations and corruption.
Basketball Hall-of-Famer Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea Tuesday to begin his second visit to that country this year, but the man nicknamed "The Worm" said earlier in the day he will not try to negotiate the release of an American held by Kim Jong-un's regime since late last year.
"I'm not going to North Korea to discuss freeing Kenneth Bae," Rodman told Reuters from Beijing, the traditional jumping-off point for flights into Pyongyang. "I'm just going there on another basketball diplomacy tour."

I find it odd that you seem upset with an American taking $3 million dollars out of this supposedly horrible man's pocket and bringing it home.\
