Lady Gaga kicks Kid Cudi off Monster Ball Tour
Someone forgot to tell Kid Cudi that if you're opening for one of the biggest stars in music, you shouldn't punch their fans in the face.
Not that anyone should need to be told that, but seeing as Kid Cudi is a Kanye West protege, well, we shouldn't take matters of common courtesy for granted.
Kid Cudi was removed from Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour Wednesday, only a few days after he punched a fan in the face during a weekend performance in Vancouver. R&B breakthrough Jason Derulo was announced as his replacement.
You really want to know why Susan Boyle, Andrea Bocelli and Michael Buble are tearing up the charts? Last time I checked, they weren't hijacking the stage from teenage girls on MTV, beating their girlfriends, or - not to be outdone - beating their fans.
Suddenly a kiss from Adam Lambert isn't looking so bad!
