Kanye West could have banked $4.5 million in just over a week if he had inked a deal to perform in Las Vegas.
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper was reportedly approached by Planet Hollywood to perform in Las Vegas for 9 days where he would be paid $500,000 per night.
The deal would make Kanye West the highest performer on the Vegas strip, but the College Dropout rapper turned down the deal according to TMZ.
Other acts in Vegas such as Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, and Britney Spears are being paid anywhere from $350,000 to $476,000 per show.
No reason was given as to why Kanye West declined the offer. Perhaps the deal wasn’t perfect for him.
Speaking of perfection, Kanye West recently spoke about his idea of perfection in a leaked video from his interview with GQ.
“Most people are just satisfied with, ‘It’s good,’ Yeezus said. “Most people are satisfied at a 10, or something. It’s not to just stop at 10. You know, 10 is ground zero; perfection is ground zero. We need to take things to a genius level. I’d rather take the chance of being hated to bring that type of creation to the world.”
