Barely a week after tour dates were announced, Fame Kills, the joint tour featuring Kanye West and Lady Gaga, was canceled yesterday without explanation. Us Weekly reports:
Live Nation made the announcement Thursday but did not offer any explanation, according to the Associated Press. The tour — titled “Fame Kills” — had been in the works for months and was set to kick off next month, on Nov. 10 in Phoenix and it was planned to run through at least January. After multiple apologies posted to his blog, he blamed not taking time to grieve over his mother’s 2007 death as the reason for his outburst during an interview on Jay Leno’s show. “So many celebrities, they never take the time off,” he said. “I’ve never taken the time off to really — you know, just music after music and tour after tour. I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt… But I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve.”
Man, I’m glad Kanye has put his own interests aside to deal with his issues and to get the help he so seriously needs. Only except he’s not doing that.
If Kanye West doesn’t regret hijacking Taylor Swift, he will now — we’re told his concert tour with Lady Gaga was scrapped because ticket sales sucked. And “sucked” happens to be a nicer version of the word we were told. And not only that — our insiders say another factor in the cancellation was West and Gaga’s people were at each others throats like their last names were Gosselin.When it came down do it, we’re told Gaga decided she’d be better off playing smaller venues … and far from the headache caused by Kanye’s ever present drama.
Kanye West and Lady Gaga are supposed to be two of the biggest stars in the world, but then you realize he’s a whining 3-year old in a argyle sweater and she’s the mortal enemy of the Smurfs in drag who couldn’t sell out tickets to Kidz Bop on Ice at an elementary school gym. It must suck knowing that people would rather pay to see a monkey playing the cymbals than you two freaks on stage.
Sir Gaga wearing something horrifically stupid yesterday. I didn’t see that coming:
