Kanye West / Lady Gaga’s Fame Kills Tour Cancelled

October 2, 2009 Leave a comment


Kanye West and Lady Gaga’s co-headlining Fame Kills Tour has been canceled, according to a press release from tour promoter Live Nation. No explanation given for cancellation of tour, which was scheduled to launch on November 10.

No reason was given for the cancellation. The press release stated that refunds are available at the point of purchase, and that tickets purchased online and via phone will be refunded automatically.

Rumors about the tour’s possible cancellation have been swirling for days, largely related to the negative publicity stemming from West’s interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards last month. The tour, which West abruptly announced during a television appearance in the spring and was scheduled to launch on November 10 in Phoenix, was oddly not confirmed by either of the artists’ reps until mid-September.

50 Cent slammed the tour — which he called “the gay tour” — in an interview on New York’s Hot 97 on Wednesday, but apologized for his comments on Thursday (October 1) after a wave of negative feedback in the media. Read more…

Topics: Kanye + Gaga tour (= “gay tour”), Jay-Z (“coolest punk in hip-hop”), Eminem (speculates that Em isn’t happy with the mix of Forever), Kim Kardashian perfume business venture, how he feels his career hasn’t peaked yet (“I think I got another 5 years left”), MTV Hottest MC list (“I think I’m #1”), Banks’ double-disc mixtape (“I heard him say that, and I’m making sure it’s not 2 CDs. I can’t even listen to me that much.”), Lil Wayne and more.

Curtis has mastered passive aggression. Still as entertaining as ever.

Lady Gaga Used To look (somewhat) Normal?

Who is this human mortal, with the long dark hair and the Yamaha keyboard and the … regular-people pants? Surely, not Lady Gaga as we know and love/loathe/love to loathe (multiple choice!) her.

Where is the red lace face monster? The goth-Victorian Phantom of the Opera with the friendly neck pigeons? Nary a casual-Friday hair-bow ‘n nipple-tape combo to be found here, friends.

Watch the Artist Formerly Known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta performing the song “Hollywood” at a small New York Club in January 2006, and marvel at the transformative power of leotards, peroxide, and major-label dollars:


What do you think, Music Mixers — can you read her Poker Face better now, or back in the brown-haired, basement-y days? (Spoiler alert: She still says “F—” a lot.)
