Kanye hired Kenny G to play jazz amid a sea of roses for Valentine’s Day—and it’s a meme


It will come as no surprise that Kanye West went all out for Kim Kardashian’s Valentine’s Day present this year.

“NO BIG DEAL KENNY G IN MY LIVING ROOM!!!” Kardashian tweeted Thursday. The accompanying video showed famed saxophonist Kenny G apparently trapped in a land mine of roses in vases while he played jazz in the Kardashian-West household.

The clip begs a few questions: Did Kenny G have to stand there while the roses were placed? Or did he tip-toe carefully around them to get to that spot? And if that’s the living room, where is the furniture?


But those are minor details, and the real story here is that West’s grand Valentine’s gesture puts any of your romantic holiday plans to shame. And of course, the whole ordeal has inspired memes and jokes on Twitter.

This reaction shot of West is particularly hilarious. Seriously, what’s he thinking?


Please just tell us Kenny G is OK.
