Kanye West may be able to take time off to think about his life after all now that his concert tour has been canceled.
Kanye West has canceled his "Fame Kills" tour with Lady Gaga. It was announced two weeks ago.

Concert promoter Live Nation said Thursday that West's concert tour with Lady Gaga, titled "Fame Kills," has been canceled just two weeks after it was announced.

The reason for the cancellation was not revealed. West told NBC's Jay Leno last month, before the tour was officially announced, that he planned "to take some time off" in the aftermath of his MTV Awards show embarrassment.

The three-month, 34-show tour across the United States and Canada was to start next month. Tickets went on sale last week.

Live Nation said people who bought tickets could get refunds at the point of purchase. Tickets purchased online and on the phone will be refunded automatically, the promoter said. [CNN]

I guess that means MSG on New Years Eve is up for grabs again. I wonder if the NYC venue will get a new show for that date (it was never announced, but I heard if was definitely supposed to happen).

In related news, Lady Gaga is hosting Bootleg at Santos Party House this Saturday.

In unrelated news, "David Letterman shocked viewers when he confessed on his Late Show Thursday night that he was a victim of an extortion plot for $2 million dollars. Someone tried to blackmail him for having sexual relations with female members of his staff."

That does open the door for Phish to take the slot. But by now they must have already booked something. Doesn't hurt to hope...

i would hope Fame would kill him. Kanye is a piece of sh&!. To blame his low life animal behavior on his mother's death does nothing but prove his lack of concern for anyone but him. Yep, "PIECE OF SH&!."

This should grow up his mother has been dead for two years how long does he need maybe he should ask the bottle of Cognac he as drinkking at the MTV awards.
This guy need an attitude adjustment and reality check. Now that the Fame Kills tour has been canceled I guess there will be no money coming so he won't be able to pay all his lakeys. Who ever is consulting Kanye should be arrested for bening stuiped.
Well Kanye next look before you leap.

How sad. Lady Gaga just made it to S-N-L and it was starring w/Madonna. I found this website by a girl named Aisha which has long lists and photo comparisons that portray Madonna as a plagiarist and con-artist, people are so mean and materialistic, Madonna’s not a capitalistic wanna-be or entertainment tyrant-she’s a mother of Christ or I mean the messiah, anyway its all confusing, I’m better off not saying anything more about this controversial subject matter. I guess though Lady Gaga gets booed off stage every once in awhile, maybe she shouldn’t perform live for people who understand music and art- she should stick to the New Kids On The Block fans and nursing homes she started playing at before MTV. Anyway- that mean old Kayne doesn’t like “gays”, he would have been uncomfortable with Gaga’s new fan base. We need to be nice, these are commercial success stories here.
