(Newser) – Kim Kardashian will become "Kim Kardashian West" when she marries Kanye West, she revealed to E! last night. "I will" take West's last name, Kardashian said, adding that she'll make her current, famous last name into her middle name. As for when that will happen, it could be next year, the New York Daily News reports. In an interview with Power 106, West revealed that the wedding will happen "sometime next summer," and said he wants "fighter jets" there. (Yes, really.)

Vanity Fair highlights another amusing part of the radio interview: West had no specific reason for proposing to Kardashian at San Francisco's baseball stadium, he just "thought it would be dope," he said. Once there, "they didn’t have the lights exactly like I wanted it to be," he recalled. "I’m arguing with the guy who put it together for me. He’s talking about, 'Man it need to be more romantic.' I said, 'It’s a baseball field. What you talking about? If I wanted to be romantic, I would have gone to a small restaurant or something.'"
