Mr. Yeezus himself, Kanye West, rented out AT&T Park on Monday night in order to propose to his girlfriend and the mother of his baby, Kim Kardashian. According to CBS 5, the proceedings took place on Kardashian's 33rd birthday, and included a 50-piece orchestra and a 15-carat diamond ring. AT&T Park's big jumbotron flashed the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" as Kanye took one knee and proposed, demonstrating once again that Kanye is just as emotionally intense in real life as he is in song.
West is in town for two Yeezus live dates in the Bay Area: the first tonight at SAP Center in San Jose, and again Wednesday at Oracle Arena in Oakland. (Tickets for which are still available.) E! reports that the orchestra at AT&T Park last night played versions of Lana Del Rey's "Young & Beautiful," along with Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down," featuring Ne-Yo and Kanye himself.
Here's a question: Do you think his new engagement will soften a little of Kanye's live intensity tonight, as he performs songs from his abrasive new album?
