Kanye West’s Valentine’s Day surprise involved roses and… a surprise from Kenny G!

Debate: while Kanye West has been justifiably canceled for his unhinged MAGA politics, should we also say that he occasionally does really romantic things? The evidence I have is that Kanye is into very big declarations of love – he is not the kind of guy who picks up flowers at the grocery store on Valentine’s Day afternoon, which I saw at least a dozen men do yesterday. No, Kanye PLANS. He puts thought into his big romantic gestures. He rents out movie theaters, restaurants and stadiums for romantic gestures. He doesn’t just buy a bouquet of flowers, he has a WALL of flowers made for his wife.

For this year’s Valentine’s Day, Kanye decided to do another big gesture. He filled one room of their house with individual roses in individual bud vases. He spaced them out perfectly. And then he hired Kenny G to come to their house and play instrumental versions of sappy love songs. Kim seemed legit surprised, but she kept it together long enough to record some videos and post them:

Romantic or creepy or both? Personally, I can’t help but obsess about the logistics and all of the sh-t that went down behind-the-scenes. First of all, how much does it cost to get Kenny G to come to your home and perform for your wife on Valentine’s Day? Second of all, what was that conversation like between Kenny and Kanye? I NEED THE BEHIND-THE-SCENES DOCUMENTARY OF THAT.

    Who comes at sets these flowers up? Did anyone see Kylie’s gift from Travis? I really wanna know where are they while people are setting up these things? Does someone keep them out of the living room? Im so curious

    • Char says:

      I wanna know what got into the room first: Kenny G or the flowers and the logistic behind it.

      As for Kylie, I think she actually get the flowers for herself and her BF just rolls with it cause it’s a good look. If you check it out, her flowers are almost the same from the time she was with Tyga and we all know he couldn’t afford.

      • Babadook says:

        Yeah, did he have to stand there while the flowers went in or did he have to pick his way over them? Both images are hilarious

      • Lightpurple says:

        I think they did most of the flowers in the front part of the room, leaving the area near the glass doors, had him enter through those doors, then filled in the space behind him and exited through those doors.

      • broodytrudy says:

        Did you watch the videos? There is a clear path in the second one that’s posted here.

      • C says:

        I think Khloe did the same….sent flowers to herself.

    • meh says:

      more than likely Jeff Leatham, the celebrity florist who is close friends with the family

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      How many fell over? Was there water spillage?

    • Penny says:

      Mindy Weiss and her team have done the last few big celebrations for them…I’m a wedding planner so I follow her and love the production that goes into everything. This is a simple set up, single rose in bud vase, anybody could do this as a proposal for example.

      • LORENA says:

        It did not look that simple to me lol it looked like each vase was perfectly spaced out exactly the same, talk about details geez

        very beautiful tho, no shade here

    • Bella Bella says:

      My first thought was the momager organized it.

  2. broodytrudy says:

    I thought it was very sweet and obviously kim enjoyed it. Kanye really loves her.

  3. Lightpurple says:

    Extremely creepy.

    This family’s relationship with flowers is extra weird.

    Is there no furniture in that large room?

    How long did Kenny G have to stand there while the maid and florists placed all those vases around him?

    How long did he have to wait until they released him by removing the vases of flowers around him?

    How are you unaware that all the furniture is being removed from one of the main rooms of your home?

    • runcmc says:

      Yeah weirdly I don’t think Kim and Kanye’s home has any furniture outside of the bedrooms I guess? They’re constantly posting stuff from inside the house and it’s one giant empty room after another. Even for Chicago’s party the way all of the props were set up, you could see all of the rooms started off as empty.

      That’s one of the least weird things about them I’m sure, but to me it makes them look like aliens 😂 like where do you relax on a couch as a family? Nowhere? Do you just go… plug yourselves in at the recharge booths?

    • Chaine says:

      Why don’t they have anything on their walls or their mantel? The house seems so cavernous and forbidding.

    • Clare says:

      Did you guys actually watch the videos? There’s a clear path to where he is standing. Stop making me defend these fools.

    • Good GRrrrrl says:

      I guess this is very dead flower pessimist, but objectify much? I hope Kenny G enjoyed some dignity during this precise OCD floral arrangement?

  4. Clare says:

    Eh, I don’t see the ‘creepy’ in this? What’s creepy about an exceedingly wealthy man buying his wife a tonne of flowers and hiring a musician to play for her?

    I mean, I know people don’t like these folks, but to brand this as ‘creepy’ is a bit of a reach.

    • cherry says:

      Read Lightpurple ‘s comment above. The logistics. That’s what’s creepy.

      • Clare says:

        Eh, I don’t find the logistics to be particularly confusing or ‘creepy’.

        He paid a florist a tonne of money, they sent their minions to set it up. What’s confusing or creepy about that? I mean, to each their own, but I feel like there are plenty of things about these fools to judge that are legitimately creepy (like Khloe’s new face), but this isn’t one of them. Shrug.

    • meh says:

      it isnt creepy. the way you explained it is 99.99% the way it happened.

    • Jo says:

      I don’t think it’s creepy; it’s performative. This isn’t about a big gesture of love for his wife, it’s all about Kanye MAKING the big gesture. Just like when he bought her a condo in Miami for Christmas (that she is now making him pull out of, and doesn’t want) or anything else he does — it’s for HIM!

  5. Ariel says:

    Yeah but, she has to be married the Kanye.
    A thousand times no.

    • ByTheSea says:

      The bitch in me also thinks that’s the only musician he wasn’t intimidated by/jealous of around Kim.

      • Chaine says:

        Is it not weird that even though he himself is a music artist, his Valentine to her is to pay someone else to make music for her? It would be much more meaningful if Kanye wrote a song and she came in and her own husband was there singing or rapping it with Kenny G accompanying in a sea of roses.

  6. Cidy says:

    One thing I will say about Kanye despite his.. mess… I truly believe that he and Kim love each other. And it’s very sweet.

    • Kristen820 says:

      I actually do, too. I feel like it’s more of a really strong platonic love than a passionate one. But it seems very real to me.

    • me says:

      But what did Kim do for Kanye on Valentine’s Day to show her “love”???

  7. grabbyhands says:

    I think if it had been almost anyone else it would have seemed a little extra, but romantic.

    But for these attention whores, it is all about the showiness of the gesture, not the gesture itself. I sincerely doubt this had much to do with being romantic and more to do with pulling some over the top stunt to prove he has money to throw around, which in his mind makes him cool and powerful.

    There’s a reason he admires Fat Nixon so much.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I’m with you, grabbyhands. He’s as bonkers as tRump, and like that loonie, this is all about appearances.

  8. RBC says:

    Personally I would prefer a recording of Kenny G and my spouse/partner holding one rose in one hand and plane tickets to Tahiti in the other hand, if we had the money Kimye has.But it is a sweet gesture anyway

  9. greenmonster says:

    Ugly. That’s the only thing that comes to my mind. Don’t care about Kenny G, but the flower arrangement is so ugly.

  10. anna says:

    The individual roses are sweet I mean at the level of staff and money these two have…all of the logistics are easy peasy. Sort of the high-end version of hiring a musician that Claire did for Phil in Modern Family 😀 What I want to know is how much dire starits is Kenny G in, to do this? Or is he a friend of Kanye and Kim is a fan etc etc???!!

    • MerryMoon says:

      Kenny G’s motive probably wasn’t money. Dude invested early in Starbucks so he’s more than fine.

  11. Lizzie says:

    i spit my coffee. this is an SNL sketch. STOP THIS. please someone build a wall around this house so no one can leave.

  12. Millennial says:

    Honk for Kenny G.

    That’s all I’ve got.

  13. PhillyGal says:

    Just another stunt to get media attention.

  14. Elena says:

    So did he DM Kenny G or something? How do you book him? I actually think this is cute and I think it’s sweet Kim seems to be stanning for him

  15. Leala says:

    If I were Kim I wouldn’t have been able to keep a straight face if I walked into any of this…I mean come on!

  16. Tiffany27 says:

    If it makes her feel loved and appreciated then good for them. This ain’t my love language so I would just be like, “Bruh…….”

  17. Swack says:

    He’s always been over the top with flowers. Remember the wall of flowers for the wedding. So not surprising. More for attention than anything else.

  18. me says:

    Just seems like they both like to show off. Kanye is all about ATTENTION as is Kim. He knows his wife is about publicity and posting non-stop on social media. If he had a more “private” wife, I doubt he’d go “all out” for Valentine’s Day. Also, yesterday on TMZ they spoke about North West having her first boyfriend at age 5. The boy is 7. He gave her a Tiffany necklace for Valentine’s Day. This family is too much. Of course they had to post it all over social media to let people know.

  19. Margo Smith says:

    That is amazing lol Kenny effing g?!?! Love it!

  20. HeyThere! says:

    I know how expensive two dozen roses are on Valentine’s week at the florist so I tell my husband: please please don’t waste money on them because they will die two weeks later!!! He got me the two dozen pink long stemmed roses for our first married Valentine’s Day, and I was like omg so much money. I’m cheap. I’d rather spend it on a nice date out of town at a favorite restaurant. I’m more about experience than stuff/things. So, my husband is the guy getting flowers from the grocery store on Valentine’s Day because I nicely asked him to. HAHAHA

    Some women love over the top/expensive gestures and I’m just not one of them.

  21. BB says:

    Kenny G has hit rock bottom

  22. L says:

    On Canadian talk show “the social” they were talking about this today. Apparently it’s $1500 for Kenny G and Kanye didn’t reach out to him until the night before. Kenny didn’t respond and Kanye had to get David Foster to call him and ask him to do it as a favour, so I’m not thinking he put a ton of effort into this one.

  23. Lynne says:

    How do we know he did this and not an kardashian employee?

  24. jwoolman says:

    Is it my imagination, or is Kanye sneaking a side look at the camera during that kiss with Kim? Usually Kim is the one always watching the camera during alleged bonding moments, but her eyes are closed.

    • enike says:

      that was exactly what I thought
      and the kiss seems a bit meh
      I was wondering, why Kim has chosen this pic to post, they must have tons of better pics

      I liked the single roses

  25. Nina says:

    That had to have been so awkward for Kenny G. Playing privately for a couple on Valentine’s Day. I’m sure they were all lovey-dovey and at some point, he’d be like.. ‘I’ll, uh, just see myself out, I guess?’

  26. DenG says:

    The important thing is not that this happened, but that You All see it. Whatever is done must be viewed, or it does not exist.

  27. Harryg says:

    Morons. Go away morons.

  28. Anare says:

    My hubby put a Kenny G cd on while we ate dinner on VD. LOL! Does that count? The yellow roses he gave me are all in one vase however because we actually have furniture in our house. I know that’s probably considered really gauche. Oh well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
