Drama, drama, drama, when will it ever end? After hyping up Lady Gaga and Kanye West’s upcoming "Fame Kills" tour, Live Nation has just confirmed that the concert series set to start on November 10 has been canceled! What? What happened? What are the pop divas up to now? Could this be just another publicity stunt to hype up the tour even more, or will fans really have to go and get a ticket refund? While no reason has been given as to why the tour is no longer taking place, Lady Gaga's choreographer, Laurieann Gibson, tweeted that it was due to "creative differences."
Rumors also have it Kanye’s highly controversial interruption of country singer Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards has something to do with it. Maybe Kanye’s behavior and subsequent negative publicity had an impact on ticket sales? After all, even the President of the United States, Barack Obama, called him a 'jackass.' Who wouldn’t lay low after that?
Gagita on the other hand couldn’t stop talking about the tour just days before the announced cancellation. During interviews with Las Vegas radio station KLUC and San Diego's, the "Paparazzi" star chatted about everything from the stage setting to the kooky couple’s love for the fans.
"The stage is called a traverse. It's something that we designed together. Instead of being on just one end of the arena, the stage traverses the entire arena. We're on each end of the stage, and I want to get to where Kanye is, which is 'the fame.' He wants to get where I am, which is home and humble beginnings," the Lady explained.
And Gaga went on the say: "We did not do this tour for each other. We did this tour for everybody else. We wanted to do something that no one has ever seen. We wanted our fans to feel like we were doing something special and we wanted to merge two groups of fans — two different [groups of] music lovers into one room."
Well it’s a sad day for Lady Gaga and Kanye West fans. What can we say? Fame Kills.
