All the sickening ways your favourite music stars celebrated Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a great equaliser: it’s hard to not to come across as a bit saccharine amidst all the rose petals and heart-shaped chocolates.

Celebrities are no different, and if you ever thought “I wonder how my favourite musicians spent V Day?” then wonder no longer. We got you covered…

Kanye West

Kanye doesn’t really do things by halves, so you know when it’s Valentine’s Day, he’s bound to go big. In recent years, he’s built massive walls of flowers and spent 9 hours posting photos of famous historic couples (including Pete Doherty and Kate Moss) to Instagram.

This year, he got curly-haired sax legend Kenny G to play an intimate set for Kim Kardashian, who also posted throwback photos of the couple to Instagram. As people pointed out though, it looked like Kenny G was trapped in a minefield of roses, which isn’t so romantic.

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber isn’t super active on social media these days but his wife, model Hailey Baldwin, gave the singer a shout-out with this soppy snap.

Chance The Rapper

Chance The Rapper‘s V Day tribute to fiancee Kirsten Corley was sappy but sweet, with the Chicago star admitting: “I had a hunch back then but I took my time”. Sharing a photo of Corley wearing one of t-shirts, Chance reminisced about his soon-to-be wife modelling his merch in the early days, adding: “Who gon have yo back and yo front and yo side AND yo side??”
