Lady Gaga is embarking on her ARTPOP world tour, but there’s a bit of a chink in the armor: people have been saying the whole thing is a flop and no one wants to buy any tickets. There used to be a day when a Gaga tour would sell out within about 3 minutes of tickets going on sale, but those days are gone. But does that really mean it’s a disaster? LiveNation, who partnered with her on the tour, is saying no.
Reports that ticket sales for Lady Gaga’s artRave: The ARTPOP Ball tour are struggling are “ridiculous,” according to Arthur Fogel, chairman of Live Nation’s global touring division, producers of the tour.
Ticket sales for North America and Europe are at 80% capacity sold, Fogel tells Billboard.biz, even though the tour doesn’t begin in America until May, and Europe in the Fall. “The run with Gaga over the last two tours has been incredibly successful, and this one is shaping up no differently,” Fogel says. He adds that Live Nation will announce an additional six Gaga shows in North America in the coming weeks (including a second in Los Angeles), as well as more dates in the U.K., including a fourth O2 in London.
The 29 shows that are on sale in North America have already grossed $26 million in ticket sales, according to Fogel, which averages out to a healthy nightly take of nearly $900,000 per show. Referring to published reports that Gaga’s June show at the Marcus Amphitheater in Milwaukee was “flopping,” Fogel says, “When something like Milwaukee specifically comes up, that show has sold 14,264 tickets, the gross is $961,000, and it’s at the end of June. I just don’t know how this shit gets any traction without people doing their homework.”
Fogel also laughed off reports that LiveNation has already lost $30 million from Gaga’s tour, insisting that only a “complete fool” would say that because it makes “no sense on any level”. I mean… methinks he doth protest too much here, but whatever.
Here are the facts: concerts are expensive as shit, and audiences want to be entertained. Gaga was entertaining for a good few years because she’s so weird. She came to an awards show inside a fucking egg, for crying out loud. However, now people are used to her. The novelty has worn off and she’s finding it harder and harder to outdo herself. Who could, really? People aren’t willing to pay $100 or $200 to see some bullshit they’ve seen for the past 5 years – especially when the bullshit isn’t even really all that good. Gaga’s gone for style over substance the past few years, and people are realizing it. The end.

The last we heard from Ke$ha, she’d checked into a facility to receive treatment for a raging eating disorder that apparently nearly killed her and was all Dr. Luke’s fault. However, after having spent some real time working out her issues, she’s been released from rehab and is ready for a comeback!
She took to Twitter, as you do the first time you have a spare minute in life, to thank her fans for their support and to post a photo of herself (I think?) with red hair, looking out of a plane window:
I can’t wait to see what she does next, or if she’ll finally get let out of the shitty record contract she was stuck in before so she can start making the kind of music she wants to make. If it’s the latter, things could go either way, depending on what direction she takes, but either way, I hope she finds some peace.

When you’re famous, people constantly crawl out of the woodworks trying to get a piece of the pie. People you haven’t spoken to since middle school (and chances are, they bullied you back then) will seriously hit you up in your 30s talking about, “Hey, remember me, man? School was rad!” (or something). I’m not sure where I’m going with this, but the point I’m trying to make here is that this kind of bullshit is even MORE common when the celebrity in question is dead, because then, not many people can refute it.
Apparently there’s been claims that Michael Jackson is 99.99% certain to be the father of some 31-year-old musician named Brandon Howard. Brandon has worked with everyone from Ne-Yo to Chris Brown, so looks like musicality runs in the family! It’s said that a DNA test proves this paternity thing, but the problem with that is that the testing facility, which is said to be based in Ireland, doesn’t actually exist, and the graphic used on the testing paper is straight outta one of the Terminator films.
Here’s a shocker — the DNA test results that allegedly prove 31-year-old Brandon Howard is Michael Jackson’s son are BOGUS … in fact, so bogus … the logo from the so-called DNA testing lab was ripped from “Terminator Salvation.”
As we reported, FilmOn.com’s Alki David put on a spectacle Thursday — claiming he had DNA results proving singer B Howard was the biological son of the King of Pop. He then produced the results showing a “99.99999%” probability that MJ was Brandon’s dad.
TMZ obtained a photo of the DNA doc — allegedly from a testing facility in Ireland called “DNA Lab.” We searched high and low but could find no such generic DNA lab in Ireland.
Skeptical, we investigated — a simple Google image search of “DNA results” turns up a bunch of sample docs with the same exact easily-stealable format as the one we got.
But the coup de grace — we then Google image searched “DNA logo” and the first result … literally … was the same DNA pic used in the “DNA Lab” logo.
Oh, dear. And here’s the testing results in question:
SMH at people. What’s wrong with everybody? Also, this guy – who seemed to have a pretty decent career before all this – has basically erased any credibility he had. Everyone’s going to remember him as the dude who tried to swindle the Michael Jackson estate now, NOT as a legit artist. What was the point of it all?
