The most hated rapper in the world, Kanye West, was spotted Tuesday leaving a recreation center in L.A. after shooting hoops with some pals, who all look very suspect. Especially the chile with her hands on her hips and the tall queen in the red shorts. How They Doin?
Anyway, Kanye was supposed to be gearing up for his Fate Kills tour with Lady Gaga (and her fake British accent). But tickets that were set to go on sale September 19 are no longer available, leading some to speculate that Kanye is making good on his promise to take a break.
According to the LATimes blog, a smattering of Fame Kills tour dates that appeared on Ticket Master on Monday were gone by Tuesday morning. As of 6 p.m. Tuesday, Ticketmaster currently lists no upcoming dates for West.
Additionally, The Times noted that “West and Gaga were set to play the Staples Center on Nov. 16 in Los Angeles. But AEG Live, which owns the downtown arena, declined to comment about the tour details, and instead referred questions to Live Nation, which is promoting the tour.”
The Times speculates that “It’s unlikely an arena tour of this magnitude would be called off; it’s more likely that West and Lady Gaga are waiting for the controversy to die down.”
But West was still trending high on Twitter.com last night with hundreds of thousands of hateful and racist tweets directed at him. And late yesterday, CNN released the raw video footage of Barack Obama calling West a jackass. So it’s doubtful that the controversy will die down anytime soon.
