Lil Wayne Freaks Shanell On Stage

30 Mar

Lil Wayne is having one hell of a dry humping week! The other night he received a lap dance from Nicki Minaj and recently in New York, Lil Wayne got a lil freaky with Young Money princess Shanell.

It looks like the Young Money president is enjoying every bit of this!

Rihanna May Cancel Tour Dates Due To Poor Ticket Sales

23 Mar

Ri Ri may have a reason to look angry!

Rihanna consistently sits on top of the Billboard charts at the #1 spot, but for some reason the popularity of her music isn’t translating to ticket sales for her tours. According to the NY Post, she may have to cancel many of her U.S. Tour dates, which begin in June, due to poor ticket sales. She reportedly had the same issues in 2010 during her “Last Girl On Earth” Tour and had to cancel dates in Phoenix, Dallas, Atlanta, Denver and Indianapolis.

A source tells the NYP:

“It has been a big disappointment. The ticket sales in big US cities like Boston are so bad, they will barely cover basics like the lighting and other arena costs. Tour managers are begging local radio stations to do giveaways.”

Rihanna is scheduled to perform in Boston on July 24 with Cee-Lo, and while 3,700 tickets have already been sold, the source claims that 15,000 must be sold to at least break even. Allegedly the promoter is expected to lose almost a half million dollars on the Boston date alone.
Another source says:

“She should’ve been doing theaters and smaller venues. She’s not ready to headline an arena tour.”

Dang Ri Ri…guess it’s back to the drawing board!

Ne-Yo Fires Backup Dancers For Not Wanting To Perform In Japan

22 Mar

The Donald isn’t the only one saying “You’re Fired!” lately…Ne-Yo had to drop the F-bomb on a few of his backup dancers recently.  

According to published reports, the dancers didn’t want to travel to Japan where the singer has a series of concert dates lined up because they feared for their safety in the tsunami stricken country.

Ne-Yo’s manager informed the dancers that despite their safety concerns — specifically the threat of aftershocks and exposure to radiation — they were still going ahead with the Japan dates as scheduled. But four dancers decided not to make the trip to Japan. As a result, those dancers were told by the tour manager they were dropped from the rest of the tour, which ends in Korea on March 30th.

Ne-Yo has two more shows in Japan, March 22nd and 24th, with some proceeds from the shows going to victims of the earthquake.

Way to put your foot down Ne-Yo!
