There's a reason why chocolates and a dozen stemmed roses are the quintessential declarations of love on Valentine's Day. But when you're Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, you've got to kick convention to the curb.

For Valentine's, Kanye arranged for his boo to be serenaded by Kenny G in their home.

Who's Kenny Go, you say? Well, for those of you who were born last year, "The G" is a famous American saxophonist.

Okay, so, the saxophone is a woodwind instrument frequently heard in almost every 80s and 90s ballad and is largely missing from contemporary music. Kenny G was the embodiment of smooth jazz with his Selmer Mark VI and has sold considered one of the best-selling artists of all time, with his impressive sales of over 75 million albums, worldwide.

Sadly as music tastes have evolved, his songs have since been relegated to playing in department store elevators to provide the utmost relaxation for shoppers' on their vertical journeys.

That Kenny G showed up for a live performance at Kimye's house.


Kardashian West tweeted her enthusiasm for her Valentine's present. If the all-caps tweet didn't give it away, she was ecstatic.

"NO BIG DEAL KENNY G IN MY LIVING ROOM!!! Happy Valentines Day."


The stage was set with a dazzling display of single stemmed roses in their respective vials set inches apart from the other. It confined the musician within a two foot-wide aisle, but Kanye wasn't going for providing comfort here.








Some felt for the woodwind wizard, who presumably might be missing out on a date night with his boo.



One user commented on the sparseness of the living room. On the other hand, the acoustics were fantastic!



Fans cut Kanye some slack, commenting on his pearly whites he briefly flashed for the camera.





You weren't the only one with questions.


You know things were good when "The G" himself commented on his cameo he was more than happy to make.



Phew! It's good to know he made it outta there safely.

Looks like Kanye won Valentine's Day this year.


Do I smell a musical collab between the two artists brewing in the near future? #bringsaxyback

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
