Kanye West fell on his back during a concert (video)

Kanye West found himself in an awkward situation during a recent concert in Norway.
While interpreting the song ‘All of the Lights’ to the enthusiastic audience, the artist suffered a nasty fall on his back. The moment was funny, of course, and it was recorded by video cameras. The incident has occurred on Tuesday, 9th of August. Kanye performed his choreography with energy, until his feet were intersected unfortunately and he landed heavily on his back.
Before the fall, Kanye just pitied the public for the tragedy that recently happened in Norway, promising that he will cheer them up as they deserve: ‘I feel great to be back on stage to sing. I came to make sure that you have fun after you have passed through those unfortunate things’.

Will.I.Am Performs for a Good Cause

Black Eyed Peas front man will.i.am will be heading to China later this year to perform in a special benefit concert in Beijing. According to the State Department, the event will benefit cultural and educational ties between the US and China, and hopefully open doors for more American students to study in China and vice versa. The rapper opened up about the opportunities he hopes the event affords for the younger generation, saying “In order to become responsible global citizens, young people need to experience the world around them. Kids from underserved communities rarely have the opportunity to study and travel abroad, and we want to change that. We must make sure that American students have the cultural awareness and skills necessary to succeed in a global economy...

According to a statement from the singer/rapper’s rep, “We regret to announce that Drake will not be able to take the stage at Universal Orlando Resort due to a death in the family. He hopes that his fans understand the situation he finds himself in and know that he fully intends to return to the area in the future. He thanks Universal Orlando Resort and his fans for their continued support.” Don’t worry about the cancelled show Drake, I’m sure your fans understand why you had to jet.

Will.i.am has a few memory problems

It would appear that the Black Eyed Peas front man doesn’t have as much of a way with words as his songwriter stance might have some believe. During a recent concert in France while performing with Stromae, will.i.am apparently had a little trouble remembering the lyrics to his own song “Don’t Stop the Party”. So he did what any decent singer would do and pulled out his iPhone in order to not disappoint his fans… any more than they might have already been, at least. The song may be relatively new, but still… doesn’t will.i.am engage in the practice of practicing? Or maybe he just meant to give a whole new dimension to the verse “kill you with my lyricals”.

Jennifer Hudson Cancels on CBS

Jennifer Hudson hit the stage at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield in New York City this past Friday. The 29-year old singer and actress performed as part of Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series. Jennifer was also actually scheduled to sing on CBS’ Early Show the same day but had to cancel at the last minute because of what her rep says to be “severe abdominal pains”. I hope she’s ok. In other related news, CNN is reporting that Jennifer, who’s dropped 80 pounds, has just landed a book deal to write a memoir about her struggles with weight. She reportedly “wants the book to serve as an inspiration for others who want to shed a few, and she’ll also offer tips on how to lose weight and keep it off.”

The Black Eyed Peas don’t do well in bad weather

Well, it wasn’t their entire fault, but they might have tried to step up a bit and get a solution going. It seems that a recent concert that the Black Eyed Peas had in Central Park was cancelled due to lightning after thousands of fans waited for hours on end through extreme heat and rain to see the band perform. The organization in charge of the even released the following statement: “The heat wasn’t going to stop them, the rain wasn’t going to stop them, but the lightning-it stopped them. It came down to safety for everyone.” Apparently the police got involved too so the Black Eyed Peas probably couldn’t have done too much about it. But still, they might have at least tried to offer some compensation… an autograph or a tap-dance or something.

TLC Performs on American Idol

The next performance was perhaps the biggest disappointment of last night’s American Idol finale, at least for me. First of all, I don’t find any reason as to why Lil Jon had to start off the performance. Secondly because it was the now two-member TLC that took the stage, with Left Eye having passed away years ago. But what was most disappointing was the fact that it was obvious that T-Boz and Chili were lip synching through their performance of “No Scrubs” and “Waterfalls”. They looked amazing though and the female contestants all seemed thrilled to share the stage with the iconic R&B group.

Soulja Boy Lawsuit

Rapper Soulja Boy cancelled a gig last December and allegedly didn’t pay anyone back the money that he was paid for to do it. He was paid a $16,250 advance fee to secure the date and also owes another $3500 for bus transportation to the event and another $8000 for television and radio commercials to promote it. TrinCity chief Joseph Sheldon Brewster has filed a lawsuit against Soulja Boy and he blames Interscope Records and MySpace Music for stopping the concert and then not paying a promised $10,000 to make up for the advertising costs on time. Brewster claims it’s a breach of contract and unjust enrichment. However, I find it unfair that he’s suing for $1 million instead of asking to get paid back with additional damages. I wonder how this will play out.

Amy Winehouse screws it up in Dubai


It looks like the epic trek of Amy Winehouse and her constant battle with whatever demons are keeping her from putting on a good show continues… sadly, the latest installment marks a defeat for Amy Winehouse. The singer recently performed in Dubai and it looks like she messed it up big time. Apparently Amy Winehouse had problems even with staying awake during the concert, not to mention the slurring of words and whatnot. And of course, as seems to be common for most her performances, she got booed. It looks like Amy Winehouse’s so-called recovery is slowly turning out to be the same old fiasco. Rehab seems to be a-coming once again.
