A Columbus, Ohio nightclub where Trey Songz was scheduled to perform was shut down by the Ohio State Patrol for violating Covid-19 restrictions.

Club Aftermath, located on Channingway Center Drive, hosted a concert featuring Trey Songz on Saturday, Dec. 6. Hundreds of fans packed into the club to see their fave perform.

But before Songz could touch the mic, the club was shut down for "egregious violations of health orders," according to the Ohio Investigative Unit.

The Ohio State Patrol, which oversees the OIU, said in a press release that undercover agents arrived around 9:30 p.m. and saw about 500 people inside the club.

Agents observed no attempts to social distance and most of the club patrons were not wearing face masks or face coverings.

A state health order prohibits mass gatherings in Ohio, according to WBNS 10 news.

The violations will be presented to the Ohio Liquor Commission for possible penalties, including suspension of the club's liquor license.

Nightclubs in Atlanta are free from such oppressive rules -- thanks to our mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Atlanta clubs and restaurants are packed with warm bodies every weeknight and on weekends.

Thousands of freedom-loving partygoers pour into Atlanta from locked down cities to enjoy a taste of freedom before returning to their oppressive cities.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has said he will not impose Covid-19 restrictions such as lockdowns and mask mandates on Georgia residents. He did, however, give local lawmakers the authority to impose their own Covid-19 restrictions.

Thankfully, Mayor Keisha's city remains a wide open, restriction-free tourist destination.

Lizzo was forced to cancel another concert while she's laid up at home with an upper respiratory illness which she says is the flu.

The 31-year-old pop star took to social media on Monday, asking her followers to pray for her and updating them on her condition in a series of posts.

Lizzo was scheduled to perform in Boston at the KISS 108 Jingle Ball on Sunday, and then in Hartford, Connecticut at the Hot 93.7 Jingle Jam on Tuesday, Dec. 17.

Rappers Megan Thee Stallion and Saweetie were also on the bill at the Hartford concert. But the station canceled the entire show after Lizzo backed out.

The "Juice" singer took to Instagram to apologize for disappointing her fans.

"To my Hartford fans and Hot 93.7, I am so sorry I have to cancel my performance tomorrow due to the flu," she wrote. I hate letting my fans down more than anything. I hope that you all can forgive me while I recover and I promise we are doing everything we can to make it up to you," Lizzo said in a statement.

She then took to, asking her followers to pray for her. "Trying to get better for y'all," she captioned a video.

"Y'all I've never been this sick please pray for me."

She also posted Instagram photos that showed someone taking throat and nasal cultures to test for infection.

Another photo shows a humidifier pumping mist into the air to help ease her breathing and treat congestion.

She also told her fans she had to take "2 doses of codeine" cough syrup which doctors normally prescribe to suppress a dry cough and treat a sore throat.

Codeine is a strong opioid narcotic that is often abused. It is the main ingredient in lean, a concoction mixed with Jolly Rancher candy and a soda beverage.

Later that night Lizzo let her fans know her fever was down. "Finally out the 100s! 99.9 temp ain't bad!"

Lizzo, who was named TIME's Entertainer of the Year, told the magazine she was not feeling well. "I was getting sick a lot. I was like, 'What the f--- is going on? I need to fall back in love with my body.'"

She told the outlet her depression was taking a toll on her physical health and well-being.

"I didn't feel sexy, and I didn't know when it was going to end," the morbidly obese singer said. "There were times when I would go on-stage and be like, 'Y'all, I'm not going to lie. I'm not feeling myself,' Sometimes I'd break down and cry.

"Sometimes the audience would just cheer to make me feel better," she said.

Fans hope the "Truth Hurts" singer will recover in time for her New Year's Eve concert at The Chelsea in Las Vegas.

"I am so sorry I have to cancel tonight's show due to the flu," she tweeted after going to the emergency room to get an infusion of IV fluids.

"I hate letting my fans down more than anything. I hope that you all can forgive me while I recover and I promise we are doing everything we can to make it up to you."

A representative for the event reposted the tweet and replied, "We (love) you @lizzo! Feel better! #Kiss108JingleBall".

The singer last performed at the Z100 Jingle Ball concert in New York City on Friday, Dec. 13. She was seen entering the venue decked out in a Beetlejuice-inspired checkered body sleeve and black ankle booties.

Lizzo courted controversy last weekend when she wore a revealing thong dress to a Lakers game and began twerking in full view of children and little old ladies.

Amid the backlash, she half apologized while telling her fans to kiss her ass and "be blessed."

Georgetown University canceled a scheduled concert by rapper Fabolous, citing his history of domestic violence.

Colleges and universities have begun cracking down on rappers performing on campuses after the University of Kansas apologized for an offensive concert by rapper Snoop Dogg last week.

Washington, D.C. student activists protested the upcoming concert by the 41-year-old Brooklyn rapper at the school's Hoya Madness event.

On Oct. 6 Georgetown's athletic department announced that Fabolous was booked to perform at an upcoming concert. But students activists launched a petition in protest.

The students cited the rapper's history of domestic violence against his baby mama, Emily B. Fabolous, real name John David Jackson, was videotaped harassing Emily and shouting obscenities at her father last year.

"We strongly urge Georgetown to reconsider the message it sends students in booking an act who has a history of domestic violence. Georgetown Athletics, cancel Fabolous' performance to condemn his past behavior and maintain the Hoya family as a welcoming and safe space for all."

Fabolous pleaded guilty to harassment but the charge was eventually dropped on the condition that he enter a pretrial intervention program. He wasn't required to take an anger management course.

The school's athletic department formally disinvited Fabolous from performing on campus on Oct. 8.

Travis Scott is apparently still depressed after his emotional loss at the 61st annual Grammy Awards broadcast on Sunday in Los Angeles. The rapper was scheduled to perform during his "Astroworld" tour stop in Oklahoma on Monday night. Angry ticket holders rioted after the promoter announced the concert was postponed.
