Kanye & Lady Gaga's FAME KILLS Tour CANCELED!!

This ish was over before it started.  And Fame Kills ironically got killed.  MTV is now reporting that Kanye West's and Lady Gaga's "Fame Kills" tour has been CANCELED!  No reason has been given by tour promoter LiveNation just yet.  The official press release states that folks can get refunds where they purchased the tickets. 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 during 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. Just last week, Gaga revealed details about the tour during interviews with Las Vegas radio station KLUC and San Diego's Star 94. Hmmm...maybe Kanye's about to use his time to go to rehab/counseling/anger management afterall...

I like kanye west and lady

I like kanye west and lady Gaga. I dont think that their tour should be canceled. I think they should do it. Uhmm. Kanye does not need rehab or whatever they said that he needs.

keish: ^^^that’s cuz whites

keish: ^^^that’s cuz whites are still the majority I agree with you...maybe most of his ticket sales are usually from White, Hispanic, and others...obviously. Just because he did what he did to o girl doesn't mean that you cant buy tickets, he is the person that was going to make the tickets sell more anyways so maybe he is starting to lose a lot of his fans and the ticket sells are proving that, maybe majority of his fans are another race then black. He has been tripping for a minute now anyway, he needs to take a time out before he messes up his career totally.

keish: ACTUALLY there are

keish: ACTUALLY there are more diverse races but THEY (the white ppl) have the most money that is concentrated. for example we are lower class and our money is divided but their money is longer and more focused on certain issues…..think about who has the POWER with their $$$. Black ppl can’t even agree on being called black or African American. Well people of color are not a monolithic group of people. We can identify any way we please. We are not all of the collective mind and that for many reasons can be a very good thing. Blame imperialism and colonialism for the shift in power. Obviously there are more diverse races, ethnic backgrounds, and cultures that can totally be attributed to our human race, but we are talking about people of color and I forgot the middle east, what with all the billionaires they have over there. The said thing is people don't even see "black and white" anymore all they see is green. We live in a capitalist society and it's all about the money you can dish out. So even though it is safe to say that white people have most of the money and the majority of the power, people of color (from all "diverse races") some of the money and some of the power (there is such thing as a black middle class). I just think it's dangerous when people speak in such general terms. Like that heffa that kept yelling about slavery. We are on the same side, just with different view points.

d: 50 aint take nobody mic.

d: 50 aint take nobody mic. he went up cuz he though he should have won. and it was the grammys he’s lost the 9 categories he’d been noded in. kanye’s gone up many times for himself on some nonsense grabbing people’s mic and then now when he’s not even nominated. he goes up and embarrases himself and a lil girl. don’t compare the 2. there’s a method to 5th’s madness. kanye is just an idiot Right...stupid comparison. Anyway, I wouldn't have paid to see this crap anyway bcuz I can't stand Lady GaGa...she's just lame to me. Kanye needs to get his shyt together...spend some time with Dr. Phil... U r supposed to be a grown ass man but u go around acting like a 5 year old, destroying cameras, arguing with the paps; tantrums worse than my 2 yr old...

I actually think this is a blessing in disguise, he needs some private time just to think and recoup! I wasn't planning on going to the tour but I'm sure it would have been fab cos they are both great performers and artists!

Down Right:

Down Right: QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!….Why are people saying Kanye acted out because of his Mother’s passing???? Am I missing something???? In all honestyWasn’t he like this before she passed as well??? Didn’t he get up on stage @ a Grammy show and complain that he should have won for his Touch The Sky video??? I have always said the same thing. I am a pretty large Kanye fan but he was like this before his mother passed. Its just that now, since her untimely passing, he has gotten a little worse. Nonetheless, still the same Kanye. He does need help though, he has to learn to deal with his issues and he has to address things instead of ranting about them. First things first though, he needs to get rid of a VAST majority of his "circle". His girl and some of his "friends" need to go because they are poison in his life. IMO

Being the huge Kanye fan that

Being the huge Kanye fan that I am, I have to say I was literally almost in tears when I went to livenation yesterday and saw this. I was waiting for the tickets for Houston to go on sale in a couple weeks for his show in Janurary. I am happy that Kanye has decided to seek professional help in dealing with the problems he has going on internally (that is, if the rumors of rehab are true). I wish I would have gotten a chance to see him again in concert but I do understand that his mental health is more important. Another rumor that is going around is that Gaga pulled out. Honestly, that has got to be one of the dumbest things she could have done, speaking from a promotional point of view. Im not doubting that she can sell out a concert but she wouldnt make nearly as much money as she would if she was to continue to tour with Kanye. All the cities who had tickets for sale were already sold out completely. Im not a huge fan of Lady Gaga since her performance on the VMA's. If it was me, I would have rode it out with him and did the show. She could use that extra fame and review do get her further in the music industry. I personally was going only to see Kanye. Either way, I hope Kanye gets it together and comes back even better and stronger.

That's ok...both fame-whores anyways! They need to peace out. Esp kanyes foolish ass.

I'm not one to talk about

I'm not one to talk about folks but have you noticed that after a little while, whenever ANYONE in Hollywood is alluded to be "Gay" or "Homosexual," either male or female people lose interest real quick? Can you say..... Kanye west Lady Gaga Amber Rose Lindsey Lohan Doogie Howser George Michael Tevin Campbell Elton John Shemar Moore (sorry Boo) I can go on and on with this list but you get the point? This tour being cancelled and countless other reasons regarding GaGa and Kanye should be no surprise. I say...save all your money boo's, I think you are going to need it.

Chilover15: ACTUALLY! When

Chilover15: ACTUALLY! When you think about it in a global sense instead of a United States of America sense, People of Color are the majoity. BUT People of Color are too busy trying to nitpick on who is and isn’t a person of color as well as too busy being predjudice against each other and in our own walks of life that we don’t see that we are the majority (Latin America, South East Asia, Asia, the Southern Pacific, Africa, some parts of the United States and some parts of Europe too)Start thinking on a gobal sense, I feel like we are limiting ourselves to this American mind frame that we are the minority. We are doing a diservice to ourselves. ACTUALLY there are more diverse races but THEY (the white ppl) have the most money that is concentrated. for example we are lower class and our money is divided but their money is longer and more focused on certain issues.....think about who has the POWER with their $$$. Black ppl can't even agree on being called black or African American.

Oh and the show was cancelled

Oh and the show was cancelled because Kanye's ass is homophobic and insecure about being a hetero. He didn't want anyone calling him a gay fish. And 50 Cent's fool self was trying to put him on blast and make him feel hella insecure. What he needs to do is realize it is not that serious and get himself paid (some more) and do this tour. Some men kill me with that homophobe mess. Then again he is dating a bi girl. They are probably one henney sip away from a Kanye's bisexual "slip up". HATE!!

This is not the first time

This is not the first time Kanye did this to some white folks ya'll. This is like the third time. His show being cancelled has nothing to do with that girl being white, it has to do with the masses just being tired of his antics! Too bad for Lady Gaga though. But don't trip all you Kanye lovers... all he has to do is put out another bomb ass album and he'll be back on top. Hopefully this time he'll learn that arrogance is ugly and nobody like ugly.

Man...I was looking forward

Man...I was looking forward to seeing Fame Kills and was actually more juiced to see GaGa than Kanye. Divine intervention. Maybe now he will deal with his egocentric lifestyle and the demons which were there long before his mother died. I LOVE Kanye but he fell off since Graduation. Tired of seeing him and the femmebot everywhere too.

Honestly, I'm not surprised.

Honestly, I'm not surprised. I mean, he even said that he really hasn't took tim eoff to reflect about what he did and figure out how he can get better as a person. Underneath all the arrogance, is a human being that knws he has a problem. He just really needs to take time out and really get some anger managment, therapy, or some kind of help. I dont care to much about lady gaga, I'm sure she'll find another tour to be on

Lili: DAMN! I know someone

Lili: DAMN! I know someone who just charged 4 tix on the credit card…$286 PER TICKET= approx. $1200. The show was going to be amazing, no doubt…but that price was way too steep for me. That was me!!! Got an email this morning at 10:00 that my tix printed and were on the way and I could track them through UPS. Just yesterday the city was buzzing with the possibility of them adding MSG on New Year's Eve. Oh well. Hurry up and give me my damn money back!!!

Really??!?: This tour

Really??!?: This tour cancellation is nothing but divine intervention. Kanye is free fallin’ and if he doesn’t do something to turn this ish around right now, he’s going to become another sad tragic story of a talented musician who couldn’t exorise his demons and paid the ultimate price.I too lost my mother suddenly and unexpectedly 4 years ago this November, and the feeling of listlessness and void is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. Fortunately, I didn’t have to grieve under the bright glare of the media and gossip blogs. I don’t think I would have made it….I’m prayin’ for you Kanye - god bless. I am sorry for the loss of your mother and I totally agree with what you said. Go get help Kanye, before it's too late.

It needed to be canceled!

It needed to be canceled! Kanye has no business gettin' out there in that "tour" environment. He needs help and if rehab is it, then hopefully he'll be checkin' in soon. I know it's been a while, but I don't think Kanye's dealt with his mom's death properly. Think about your career next year kanye.

Miss. Tiandez Jones:

Miss. Tiandez Jones: honestly, I understand that Kanye hasn’t had time to grieve, and I’m all for him taking time off to relax a bit, and although I don’t know the extent of his “drinking problem” and “anger ” issues, I can tell you that there are more ppl in the industry that need way more help then him. Ugh, so what he did was wrong by running up on the lil girl like that but who cares, its done n over with, 50 cent did that shit to evanescence in like 03, its been done, I don’t know why everyone cares so much. Get over it. Now this whole thing is snowballing into some bigger thing about him needing help, which I don’t particularly think he does, cuz Kanye’s always been overly ambitious, arrogant and pretty much out-spoken…dont act like ya’ll don’t know! That’s just Kanye. I’m not excusing his I’m just saying, ppl shouldn’t be so surprised. So for the tour to get cancelled off of some speculative shit about his actions at the MTV awards is some bull! If he seriously needs to take some time off to get ish together, than I support that and wish him the best. But I hope he’s not cruumbling over some media pressure to conform to “Mr. Niceguy”. Ugh, my ranting and raving is over, and I don’t care what anyone wants to say.
