“Officially contracted” to appear between 2am and 3am certainly provides an interesting insight into how packed Kim Kardashian West’s schedule must be. The reality-TV star treated us to an appearance at the VIP Room at the Radisson Blu on Yas Island – the place to be seen on the closing night of the Grand Prix.
Kardashian, who reportedly gets paid US$500,000 (Dh1.84 million) for an appearance, was reasonably prompt. At 2.25am, a crowd assembling at the entrance alerted us that the star had swept in. And what better way to welcome her than with a classic Kanye West track, All Falls Down?
She looked slightly tired but completely unfazed by all the attention, which brought to mind the phrase “I don’t know how she does it.” While she was stunning in a clinging white dress with a choker collar, we didn’t get to witness much of her personality. After posing for a few pictures, she retired to a VIP table with her party. The night was completed with sets by Future and French Montana.
