When you've got a career like Lana Del Rey's, performing at the wedding of the year is no big — it's also something you do for free. Forget that she's got plenty of money in the bank, those in her inner circle reap wedding singer-esque benefits.

While rumors swirled that Del Rey was paid nearly $3 million for her three-song set during Kimye's pre-wedding party at the Palace of Versailles, in reality there was no such fee.

"I'd do it for free just like I did this one," Del Rey told a TMZ cameraman when he asked how much it would cost for her to sing at his wedding. "I would never let a friend pay me to sing at a wedding."

PSA: Our wedding dreams now revolve around getting chummy with Del Rey. Her new album, Ultraviolence, drops June 16 and you can preview it here.
