You see, this is the danger with weddings. Where's the line? Where's the cut off point? You have to invite so-n-so, because you actually like them, but that means you also have to invite X, Y and Z - AND their partners - otherwise there'll be WAR.
The rapper asked the the shy and retiring sort to be his wife in front of all her loved ones/the world at AT&T Park in San Francisco on her 33rd birthday last October and is now planning the big day, which will take place in Paris this spring. It kind of clashes with a(nother) big world event, but sure Kanye isn't letting that dampen his enthusiasm.
The 36-year-old mask lover has reportedly given his assistants a 600-strong list, which includes friends like Jay Z, Beyonce and Jamie Foxx, in addition to the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Lupita Nyong'o, Prince, Winnie Mandela, Karl Lagerfeld, European and Middle-Eastern royalty, and - of course - the Obamas.
An insider told heat magazine: "The wedding is during the last weekend of Cannes Film Festival. But there's no limit to Kanye's ego - he's expecting everyone to skip Cannes. When his assistants try to explain that some people aren't going to show, he won't listen. He's going to be quite shocked when the day comes and half the names aren't there." Like the President of the United States.
Kim has been the voice of reason (seriously) and wants to more intimate ceremony: "Kim has told him to be realistic. She thinks it's odd to have strangers there. She wants it intimate - just family and close friends. She's invited Nicole Richie, Ciara, Blac Chyna, Tyga and Lindsay Lohan."
Yeezus, no wonder he wants to invite the world and its ma; this is probably the one occasion he wouldn't mind getting lost in the crowd.
