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."
