Even though Kanye West and Jay Z showed up to their listening party last night, we are hearing there is trouble over the "Watch The Throne" CD and tour. Even Kanye had to admit there is something going on.
Kanye said "Yea, we are butting heads a little bit but it is all good."
What is causing the trouble between the rap duo? According to this New York Post article, it is over the upcoming tour. Today, they had to shuffle tour dates. There were to be 2 shows in October at L.A. Staple Center but now there will only be one show and in December.
Kanye wants the tour to be an all out visual effect well Jay Z is trying to keep productions costs low and make his money through his Live Nation deal.
The post reported: "Jay is a stone-cold businessman. He wants to recoup all of his money from Live Nation. But Kanye wants to upstage rock stars with a blowout show. He doesn't care about costs. He has a lot less to gain from the shows."
We smell trouble. Jay Z had a problem when touring with R. Kelly several years ago and Kanye was to tour with Lady Gaga last year but it did not happen, perhaps due to the Taylor Swift heat still or his own ego that Gaga may upstage him. So that's one failed tour for each but at least Jay-Z's did get off the ground.
The Cd "Watch The Throne" drops next Tuesday as a digital release on I-Tunes. As for the tour, right now, although tickets went on sale, I would hold my breathe.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: The Blame Game
Man, it must be a slow news day. Either that, or people did not want to talk about Lindsay Slowhands Lohan today. So, the New York Post goes after the celebrity President Barack Obama for wearing flip-flops.
While vacationing in Hawaii, President Obama was spotted wearing shorts and flip flops and it seems it's a big deal. I really don't think Americans care. Just fix the damn economy and he can wear a tutu for all I care.
So we ask you; is it really a problem that Barack Obama, The President of the United States, the leader of the Free World wear an outfit like this while on vacation?-Dr.FB
Despite a report from the New York Post, (the New York Post people come on!) Debbie Rowe is NOT taking a $ 4 million dollar payout over the kids to let Katherine Jackson be their guardian.
I must admit, it seems the Debbie Rowe stories coming out, and there are a lot of them, all hit with quickness, and then within hours, there is a denial about it. Who is spreading the stories? Hmm.
Katherine Jackson and Debbie Rowe will have the first of many court dates over the custody of the children on July 20th.-Dr.FB
