Just after 7 oclock tonight, Live Nation issued a tersely-worded, no-further-details statement confirming that the Kanye West/Lady Gaga "Fame Kills" tour has been cancelled. Like everyone else, we went straight to Kanye's blog to get the scoop, and he did not disappoint. If recent posts are any indication, here's why the shit fell apart, in Kanye's own words.
5. Found a freakier white girl to play with.
4. Imma let you finish, Lady Gaga, but my 2008 Grammy Performance was the best performance of all time.
3. Too busy growing 50 feet tall, laser-eye-blasting liquor store.
2. Too sad.
1. Couldn't wait two months -- wanted to be trending Twitter topic NOW, dammit.
