"It was a mutual decision," Gaga said as she arrived for the Billboard Women in Music Event, where she is receiving this years Rising Star Award. "Kanye's going to take some time off. But the good news is that I'm going on tour in a few weeks." [Billboard]

this is just speculation...but kanye has been touring A LOT for a such a large touring act. he did the glow in the dark tour and then did another tour in the last couple years. If you notice most arena acts (pearl jam, U2) only hit a market every 2-3 years. It doesn't seem like most bands who play venues bigger than clubs hit markets more than once every 2 years. maybe tix just werent selling?

this is just speculation...there's no arena in the world large enough for Kanye West's ego so they had to cancel the tour...what a fucking tool, how does this asshole have fans?

Kanye should definitely take a break from spotlight. He needs an image makeover.

I'm not sure if any Arena or Stadium would hold BOTH of their humongous egos.

Plus the mixing of Gaga Fans and Kayne fans would have not been a pretty sight.

id buy a ticket, but only to watch kanye play to a half empty arena. what a loser

Poor ticket sales. You still could pull great seats a week after they went on sale in most every market.

because letterman was having sex with gaga.

Ahhhs. Been too immersed in the indie world to realize that if an arena concert doesn't sell out in a week, it's a failure.

I would want to see Kanye fans react to a bunch of dudes dancing around with panties on their heads and people in wheelchairs and on crutches running around Lady Gaga for no reason.

That's pretty shocking.

They would cancel due to poor sales when the tour is this far off?

I wonder who would cook a better hummus... Lady GaGa or Kanye West? That is the important issue here.

Posted by Anonymous | October 3, 2009 5:26 AM

i heard it was because kanye kept interrupting lady gaga's rehearsals for the show.
I'ma letchoo finish.....

Kanye West hasn't cooked a thing in his life, while you know GaGa loves cooking food because of dat ass. So Lady GaGa is the better hummus cooker no doubt.

You're all fucking idiots. Kanye cancelled because of the backlash he got from the VMA incident with Taylor Swift. That's the only reason this thing was getting poor sales.

Lady Gaga is still dominating the charts, so you can't say she's failing at anything unless you're a dumb twat who doesn't know anything.
