So, you’ve got your ‘L’ plates, your costume veils and matching T-shirts all made up. There’s just one more thing every hen party needs: Kanye West, of course.
The rapper took a break from his busy schedule of Mr Kardashian-ing and awards-cermony crashing to make a welcome (yup, welcome) interruption at a hen party at a New Orleans restaurant last night – sending champagne over to a bride-to-be and friends, who were celebrating at a nearby table.
And Kanye – who, let’s face it, isn’t usually noted for his gracious and friendly persona – further surprised the party (and us) by wishing the bride well and saying that getting married was ‘the best thing that’s happened to him’. He even allowed the ladies to crowd in for a picture – though not too close, of course (let’s not get silly). Still, it was all enough for the partygoers to be feeling the Kanye love, with the hens describing it as 'the best night of our lives'. Blimey.
Reports that Kanye will now be available for hire for hens, stags, weddings and bar mitzvahs remain unconfirmed. Watch this space, though.
Which got us to thinking... Which rapper would you like to crash your hen party? A quick straw poll at ELLE HQ puts Snoop Dogg in poll position (for obvious reasons), closely followed by Coolio (for the nostalgia factor - plus, he's got good form with parties), and Jay Z (we'd keep our fingers crossed Beyoncé came too). We also wouldn't be averse to having Missy Elliot show up - she knows how to get her freak on. But the ultimate would, of course, be Tupac - proving the Internet right, and that he's still alive after all.
