Kanye West and Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga Explains Tour Cancellation

After abruptly calling an end to their “Fame Kills” tour on Thursday, Lady Gaga is revealing the reason behind the cancellation.

Gaga said the decision to kill the joint tour was mutually agreed upon by herself and Kanye West. The pop singer will embark on her own headlining tour soon and is busy promoting her Fame Monster album re-release and new single “Bad Romance.”

“It was a mutual decision,” Gaga told Billboard.com at the Billboard Women in Music Event on Friday. “But the good news is that I’m going on tour in a few weeks.”

While Gaga is basking in the glow of the spotlight, West plans to drop out of the limelight. “Kanye’s going to take some time off,” she said.

Laurie Ann Gibson, Gaga’s choreographer who was working on the shows, tweeted that “creative differences” led to the tour’s demise.

Refunds will be given to all those who purchased tickets.
