Seth Rogen Details Kanye West’s Wedding Offer With ‘Ellen’
Last month James Franco shared with The View that he and comedic pal Seth Rogen had been asked personally by Kanye West to perform their parody of “Bound 2″ at his wedding to reality star Kim Kardashian. Now Rogen is sharing his story. During an interview on Ellen to promote his new movie “Neighbors” the star told Ellen DeGeneres that while he appreciated being asked to perform,he’s not sure how well it would went.
“Thank God it was kind of realized that it would not be the best idea,”said Rogen, who like Franco recalled the call they received from Kanye requesting their performance of “Bound 3″ at his wedding.
“Me and Franco got a call and [West] said that he was thinking it may be funny if we performed it at the wedding and we came out on a motorcycle,” Rogen explained. “And then we were like, ‘And then what do we do?’ And then we were all like, ‘I don’t know!’ And then we were like, ‘That’s probably not gonna be very funny!’ Because then [West] is like, ‘Then I’m just rapping with you and James Franco on a motorcycle for five minutes.'”
Being a Kanye fan Rogen said,”If he wanted me there, I would have been there naked, with a shirt off, however he wanted me, on a motorcycle, doing whatever he needed.”
Rogen also shared with Ellen the origin of he and Franco’s idea for the parody and Franco need to get the “Bound 3″ spoof as perfect as possible.
“I just had to learn to stare longingly, and there’s a lot of hair tousling. I got razor burn from Franco, it’s a tough gig,” said Rogen.
The pair have also spoofed Kanye and Kim’s cover of Vogue magazine.
