Drake London tour CANCELLED!
1. Drake London tour CANCELLED!
It has now been confirmed that rapper Drake has cancelled all his European tours due to an illness in the family. Drake was suppose to be performing at the Wireless festival but had to pull out and was also scheduled to perform at London’s O2, Shepherds Bush Empire and many other venues which then had to be cancelled. Rescheduled tour dates might be confirmed later on in the year.
2. Chris Brown’s ‘fake tears’ – Publicity stunt or not?
While doing his Michael Jackson tribute at the 2010 BET awards, Chris Brown broke down into tears while performing the song ‘Man in the Mirror’. People are now wondering whether they were real tears or just a publicity stunt. Chris Brown’s more loyal fans say they were real because Michael Jackson was his idol and he did not have the opportunity to perform at the BET awards last year to do the tribute, not to mention the incident with former girlfriend Rihanna. Others have the more cynical opinion that it was a stunt to gain more fans. What do you think?
3. JLS promises fans they won’t turn their backs on them!
JLS are working on their second album at the moment but despite working with American producers have promised British fans that ‘they won’t turn their backs on Britain’. They say they want to stick to their ‘UK sound’ and do not want to change to a ‘US sound’ as many of their fans are mainly from the UK.
