Lady GaGa and Kanye West ‘Fame Kills’ dates announced

 

Lady GaGa

Lady GaGa

Live Nation just slipped word to Buzz Central about potentially the weirdest, wildest concert tour of the fall: Billboard magazine’s just-selected “Rising Star” Lady GaGa is touring this fall on a double bill with rapper  and the MTV Video Music Awards’ “I’mma let you finish” Beyonce sympathizer Kanye West.

 

The tour hits Philips Arena Friday, Dec. 11 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Saturday at noon through Ticketmaster and will range from $39.50 to $129.50.

The pop star behind the omnipresent radio and club hits “Poker Face” and “Just Dance” is no stranger to odd double bills. Last fall, the dance diva cut her arena stadium venue teeth opening for New Kids On The Block in front of thousands of screaming soccer moms.

Will you go to see a Kanye and GaGa concert mash up? Is it an odd coupling or a brilliant musical move?

Why does anyone care about Kanye anymore? Both made fools of themselves at the MTV awards.

Very unfortunate because I like Lady Gaga, but I will not go because of Kanye West – he is just a big tool and I cannot support him.

Will not go

This is not a weird movement. It’s just stupid. Why would anyone want to be related to such an unkind, immature person? I am sure that even the most devoted Lady Gaga fans will not go to her concert because of Kanye West appearance in it… Kanye who?

I wouldn’t waste my money to see Kanye. He was a rude arrogant hothead before the Taylor Swift incident. That incident just allowed the rest of the world to see what I already knew. I don’t support rude, arrogant hotheads!!!!!!!!

Hate Kanye all you want, his tours and live performances are a drop in the bucket of dough he pulls in from being one of the most sought after producers out right now. Keep your 39.50 and go buy a clue! LOL

DAMN Lady GaGa and that SIDESHOW!!! The deal breaker for me is her being included on the ticket. HELL YEAH I will go see Kanye West!!! Yall will never understand GENIUS. And for the LAST TIME, he was talking about the AWARD itself and how MTv VMAs are supposed to recognize innovative and creative videos. LET IT GO EVERYBODY!!!

NO to Kanye. YES to Lady GaGa. Kanye, you need to learn some class and manners. Ugh. I don’t care what your talent is when that is your persona.

GaGa is AWESOME!

I wouldn’t walk across the street to see the thug West. I truly don’t understand why anyone would pay money for ANY of his products.

yeah atltiger he is “worthless ghetto trash” – of course, i mean – his mother was the chair of a college english department – nothing says “ghetto” like college professor. and he grew up in a 90% white middle class area of chicago. sounds like the “ghetto” to me. h8 how when you disagree w/ someone’s actions or when you consider someone to be tactless that you ascribe economic sterotypes 2 them. Wish U would stop being so “classist”

Some people don’t have a clue. Kanye is not ghetto Mr. AtlTiger(alien) nor is he a thug Mr. Satan(hater). This man was born of an educated woman who was a college university professor. Okay, he was unprofessional and did something he regrets. I am sure glad I won’t and don’t have to answer to some of you. Make that money Kanye and for the rest of you don’t hate. I’m so glad I’m not a hater. Forgive and move on. Move on however you want to.

Yes I would go and see the both of them if I was into them. But I think Lady GaGa has talent and so does Kanye. If feel that he is just misunderstood.

I would not go to see either if they were across the road from me. Weird, stupid and rude. I have also read many times about other rude stars like Whitney, Julia just to name a few. Will not waste a dime on any of them. I would rather pay to see and help animals and people in need.

Get a life people – He is not a dumb person he just made a mistake. All of you are prefect I guess – I don’t think so.

Lady GaGa is awesome! Kanye does not know when and how to address his issues. Taylor Swift is talented and this is not the first time he did something like this. He was thru a fit at the UK VMA’s when he won an award and thought Lil Wayne should have gotten it. So, he does not mean this toward Taylor and most of you know its about him being a dedicated artist, song writer, music producer…..If your really not going to the concert in order to hurt Kanye ; might as well through 80% of your pop music because he has contributed by writing or producing on just about every other song that comes on the radio…..For the record he’s not a thug or ghetto. He doesn’t rap about volience or drugs nor does he dress this way….Irogant , yes….OH! and you would have to flush your Ipod…..I’m going to the concert, yall can kick rocks.

This is a commentary on the SAD state of American popular culture…it is decrepit, tasteless, ignorant (ignit!), and rotten to the core.

I guess that makes me a “hater”…what a stupid, moronic, 2nd grade-simplistic loaded word. Anyone who uses it probably grew up in a trailer…home skooled!

Not even if the tickets were free. I wouldn’t go see him nor will I listen to anymore of his music. BTW I agree he is not a thug or ghetto by far. Ignorant, rude and inconsiderate YES! He’s an A DOUBLE ESS and I won’t be listening to him anymore.

All words are made up of small words and some of the most successful people came from poverty. The world and music will always change only ignorance hates change…..Obviously, this has been a vehicle for some of you to try and bring Kanye down, but its out of your control. You will continue to hear of his success because music needs him and you guys don’t realize how much is involved in your everyday music choice…. Yes, he did something stupid and we all have, but he has helped way more people and more successful artist than you people realize. He has paid the price for his success and still paying. He has been the underdog and has been taken advantage of many times and gone unrecognized in his career. There is a very big piece of his life missing and thats his MOM.

Kanye West is nothing but a racist piece of crap!!!!!!!!! Nobody cares what comes out of his mouth! So much for “taking a break”…. he doesn’t deserve what he has. Plus, he really has no talent!

Man, there are some uptight overly righteous folks up in here tonight. Get over it already. These are JUST entertainers, what they do is not important enough to be this worked up over. I want to be entertained, if I wanted to be morally stiff- I’d sit next to you hypocrites in church.

Nothing Kanye did is nowhere near as bad as listening to hypocrites spew hateful statements like “Kanye needs to be shot” just because the dude was a rude jerk. Yes, it was not anywhere near cool what he did, but to say the things you all are saying is way worse. Pot meet kettle…lames.
