Gaga speaks on the cancelation of her joint "Fame Kills" tour with Ye.
Lady Gaga and Kanye West are two of the most eccentric and unpredictable stars in recent history. While Gaga is a little crazy in her fashion decisions, Ye has always had trouble censoring himself on the mic. For starters, he said on live television that "George Bush doesn't care about black people," and he recently told the world that 400 years of slavery "sounds like a choice." You get the point... Perhaps the most memorable moment in Yeezy history was at the 2009 VMA's where Ye interrupted Taylor Swift to show some love to Beyonce because, after all, she had "one of the best videos of all time." Of all time!
At the time of the incident, Ye and Gaga had a joint tour planned called Fame Kills but before it ever began, the comments made at the VMA's were in the process of killing Kanye West's career. He's since bounced back in a major way but the controversy caused the two to cancel the tour without citing a reason. The true logi was pretty clear to everybody though.
Gaga has been quiet about Fame Kills since the cancellation but in a recent interview during her promotional run for A Star is Born, she opened up about what was going through her mind. "I think that everybody has a threshold," says Gaga, "and everybody's human. And artists are human. [A Star is Born] also deals with mental health issues, substance abuse, and addiction. A lot of trauma as well." While she doesn't necessarily confirm that any of those were issues in Kanye's life, we do know that Yeezy was off the henny at the 2009 awards ceremony so it's very possible. Watch what she had to say below.
