In a recent interview with Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, Pop sensation Lady GaGa provided insight into the cancellation of ‘The Fame Kills’ tour on which she was to embark with rapper Kanye West. The singer, whose album re-release, ‘The Fame Monster’, hits stores on November 24th, discussed how she and Kanye came to the decision to cancel one of the most anticipated events of the year.
This interview demonstrates that behind all the gimmicks and the glamour, GaGa is indeed an intelligent business woman (although still possibly insane lol). Indeed, I sense that both parties made the right decision for her to hit the road on her own in light of the recent public indignation with Mr. West. Furthermore, the fact that she played an active role in the decision certainly says something about her weight as an artist. Other acts (who will remained unnamed…) would rely on direct intervention from their labels and simply go with the flow like the puppets that they are.
