Is Lady GaGa pulling out of tour with Kanye West?!

In an exclusive posted on its Website, celebrity chronicler MediaTakeout.com is reporting that Lady GaGa wants out of her tour with Kanye West. Read the complete scoop here.

An official announcement could come on Friday, according to the site. Apparently, the rising pop star is receiving blow-back from fans who are still irked with West’s ungentlemanly-like antics on the recent MTV VMAs.

The double bill is scheduled to hit Atlanta’s Philips Arena on Dec. 11. Tickets are set to go on sale Saturday at noon. Buzz is contacting folks at Live Nation for any possible updates they may have received.

Buzz readers certainly let their voices be heard on the planned tour when we broke news of the tour at Buzz Central this week.

Check back later for updates.

So, what do you think? Smart move by Lady GaGa to distance herself from the opinionated rapper? Or should the show go on as planned with the VMAs now in the rearview mirror?

hmmmm, interesting. In my world, I don’t know of any Lady Gaga fans anyway, so who would be going to see her on tour? As far as Kanye West, why are they on the same tour, their music is so very different that one or the other is going to lose out anyway. I don’t believe Kanye West fans care that much about what he did at the awards show. They don’t condone it and thought he behaved badly, but I don’t think it would stop them from attending his show. I don’t think either of them have a big fan base.

Surely she knew what he was when she signed on…He has always been the under the tail, major elimination spot, on a beast of burden. So what difference does it make?

Lady Gaga may seem odd… much as Elton John did… Madonna, and so many others. But she is amazingly talented. If you have never heard her sing with just a piano… do yourself a favor… go to youtube.com and enter a search for her singing Poker Face on piano. It’s pretty amazing.

who cares? they both suck. AC/DC will be here on Oct.23 and I guarantee there will be more people at that show than at some show that features a drag queen and a narcissistic dochebag. And you guys can save your AC/DC sucks comments. Record and ticket sales don’t lie.

Um…..AC/DC DOES suck…..when will the rest of those old fossils die off?? I would definitely pay to see Kanye and Lady Gaga…you would have to pay me to see a bunch of 60 year has-beens trying to jump around in a schoolboy’s uniform and knee socks…..losers…..

Kanye’s actions go beyond “behaving badly”. It was in poor taste and I’m sure racially motivated. Can you imagine the backlash if Kanye was white, Taylor Swift was black and Beyonce was white . . . his career would get completely derailed and the music community would banish him . . . and Al and Jesse would be on the war path! Jay-Z’s comments defending Kanye’s actions as “passionate” simply puts Jay-Z on Kanye’s level!

I think that her being on tour with Kanye can only help her *RISING* career…I think this is ONLY rumor, it’s like free publicity for her and to be on tour with such a musical giant, is definitely a plus.

Lady Gaga is not amazingly talented. You can see people just as “amazingly talented” all over Atlanta. They just don’t get signed because they haven’t got the marketing machine of Lady Gaga. Saying that Lady Gaga is talented indicates that you don’t go to many (or any) shows.

Lady Gaga is Peaches minus good writing with an MTV gloss. It’s “sexy and artistic” for the Alpharetta teen set.

Kanye West and Lady Gaga are connected business wise, there will be no separation and I can’t believe you’re using Mediatakeout as a source when you know they make up their own stories so in the off-chance it comes true, they can say they had it first. Of course, if it doesn’t happen, no one remembers what was said.

@Kanye is getting off lightly – although i agree with you that it goes beyond behaving badly – i DO NOT think it was racially motivated just as I don’t think the congressman calling the Prez a liar was a racially motivated – both can be contributed to behaving stupidly…as for Jay Z – He needs to learn to mind his OWN business – he puts his two cents in his artist’s private battles and it only brings his face negatively into the limelight.
Kanye is known for his antics – whether negatively or positively (very rare) – he keeps himself in discussions. At the end of the day – a dedicated fan is a dedicated fan – R KELLY proves that

How is Kanye’s actions racially motivated?? The guy just jumped on stage and protested what he (and others) thought…that Beyonce had the better video!! It has nothing to do with race and Kanye is a passionate artist who does speak his mind….was he rude and wrong to do what he did? Yes…but racist? Not hardly…..

Lady Gaga is just in the rest of the pack when it comes to talent. She’s nothing special. What she does have it a mac daddy marketer. I honestly don’t know a single person that like Ga Ga or doesn’t say “What’s the big deal about her?” when she comes on the tube. Do something that stands out besides what you wear and how you act. Those are a dime a dozen.

I have been a HUGE fan of Kanye West since he broke out in 2001 and have seen him in concert during his Glow in the Dark tour – in L.A. and here in Atlanta – and he is absolutely amazing.

I’m not a Lady Gaga fan nor am I familar with her music since I am more a Hip-Hop fan but I would recommend, from a business perspective, that she drop out of the tour for her own sake. Kanye is way too controversial right now and needs to step away from the spotlight. Even though he has apologize several times, time heals wounds. He needs to do the right thing and pull out of the concert for “personal reasons” rather than have Lady Gaga pull out of the tour. this would show that Kanye is doing something that is not self-serving.

What gets me is people who come on a particular blog and disassociate themselves by saying, “who cares, I don’t like either of them”…which leads me to this question; then why the heck are you on this blog reading and responding, if what you say is true? Sheeesh….

The only problem is that it’s hard to believe what you read on MediaTakeOut. I read MTO everyday but they are the king of making things up or making something out of nothing. Maybe it’s true or maybe it’s not when it comes to MTO.

With all the gays in atlanta im sure lady gaga has a HUGE fan base here so lets be real. Also Kanye has a fanbase here due to the hip hop environment in ATL and he’s gay friendly so this duo makes a lot of sense esp here in ATL. business is business people stop putting personal feelings in this and understand that this is about making money.

@cookie monster that was hilarious…also true. they are soooo 2000 and LATE. @whiteboy how do u know she’s a drag queen….maybe u should stop parading around spring street late at night and actually do some research about someone b4 u put out dumb rumors about people..

@Steve0, that’s exactly what I thought when I first saw her, a mainstream and palatable version of Peaches.

Don’t be so quick to judge Lady GaGa based on the singles from her first album. Do some research, she went to NYU Tisch School of the Arts (although she didn’t finish) and actually got started as a song writer for just about every pop star out right now (Britney Spears, Akon, etc.). I’m not a big fan of her music but I have respect for anyone who is that talented and can make the transition that she did. As for Kanye, in the words of our president, “He’s a jerk.”

I wonder how the idiot felt when Beyonce’s video won an award later in the show???

Kanye is a narcissistic idiot anyway. WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY overrated, he’s his biggest fan.

Who cares what Kanye or anyone else thought about the awards? The award was given to who they thought deserved it, and it wasn’t up to Kanye to jump up and disagree. He makes me sick, and I wouldn’t give ONE PENNY to see him.

I was wondering why she was still going to perform with the idiot called Kanye. Hopefully she will come to her senses and pull out. At this point she is so much bigger than him anyway. He is such a drunk loser.

i just wondered not 5 minutes ago if lady gaga was going to be doing any concerts in my area, then i found out that kanye west was on tour with her and that bummed me out because i stand him. i think lady gaga SHOULD back out of the tour for what he did. if that’s how he is going to be all the time, than he doesn’t deserve to perform with people who are actually talented. and i’m sure there are plenty of people who wouldn’t go see just kanye because lady gaga really does have a large fanbase and most of the people i know thinks he’s a huge douchebag.

Hey @itamazesme, you have missed my point. I would bet a huge sum of money that if the roles had been reversed, you can be sure that it would have been called a racist act!!! Believe it, if Kanye was white, Taylor black and Beyonce white, it would have been a HUGE racial issue and the media and the music industry would have crucified Kanye . . .

BTW Beyonce, once again, revealed how much of a class act she is!

Kanye…lightly – I got your point I was just making a statement that it wasn’t racist just stupid – and Beyonce (yes the class act she is and was that night) paid with that statement – that husband of hers was angry with her for that – she wasn’t “loyal” to the camp….go figure

although i am not a big fan of lady gaga – TEENAGERS & young adults lover her and that is part of her success – and if you actually listen to her and get passed her outfits – you’d find she actually has a decent voice

WHY??

Dan you are a freaking idiot why do u even bother putting up comments so because he raps he is a thug? Seriously?? Soooooooo ignorant. Don’t know why people are so quick to throw the racist flag up. It is time for people to get over that crap. For white people other skin toned are here to stay there is nothing you can do to change that. For black people don’t be quick to blame all your problems on “white” people jeesssssssshhhhhh. Kanye was an idiot for doing what he did but he is still a very talented musician and it doesnt matter what u idiots say.
Have u guys ever stopped to think that he could be going through things?? He is human u know. He just lost his mother unexpectedly and they were really close. And he could be under so much pressure.

PLEASE don’t bring Jay into this. They are friends and he was asked a question so he answered Kanye did not kill anybody. He acted stupid tho.
Give this crap a rest please

AJC relying on MTO for gossip and a headline with a question mark…sad day for journalism, and gossip journalism. Turn to Wendy Williams to have all the chatter that matters, fresh, accurate and with a dash of flavor.

Kanye (and the camp: Jay-Z, Rihanna & Beyonce) never get a dime from me. Lady Ga-Ga is visually entertaining for about 5-minutes (she’s Madonna meets Cheer meets Cyndi Lauper) there’s a market for her brand of whack and she’s milking it. Stay or leave the tour she’s got pay days on queue.

Ya’ll can say what ya want about AC/DC, but they’re up there with Michael as far as album sales. I’m with “whiteboy” on this,the numbers don’t lie. Btw, Beyonce looked far from “horrified”. Most of us don’t have a big stupid grin on our faces when we’re “horrified”.

Personally, whether I like them or not is purely beside the point. But it seems to me that Lady Gaga may be worried that touring with Kanye might not be the positive publicity she needs. His little episode with Taylor Swift, whether racially motivated or not, was downright WRONG. Seems to me that may put her in the position where morally she has to pull out.
