You’ve heard the rumors of Rihanna and Kanye West possibly going on tour. But, new reports suggest Rih has called it off! Find out why she may have pulled the plug and get the deets on Jay Z personally calling TIDAL subscribers inside….
There has been speculation for months on whether Rihanna and Kanye West will be hitting the road on an alleged upcoming joint tour. But, it may have gotten shut down before it even gets started. Here’s what we know….
A while back, an image from an anonymous source “leaked” a flick which alluded to a possible Rihanna/Kanye 2015 tour. Soon after, another image of a scheduled performance from the “FourFiveSeconds” superstars popped up on Live Nation in Finland billed as “Kanye & Rihanna” for a show on July 25th in Tallinn, Estonia. Yet, the tix never went on sale on the scheduled date the site said the sales would begin.
Now, new reports allege the Pop princess has pulled out of the alleged tour! And it’s supposedly due to serious creative differences on how they want to put on the tour.
OK! magazine claims to have sources who say Rih isn’t feeling the way Ye is handling tour business, so she wants out. The source specifically said,
“She started having second thoughts shortly after it was leaked back in February that the tour details were ‘accidentally’ released by Kanye’s creative team, DONDA. She didn’t like how it was announced and felt like Kanye would take control over how the tour was promoted too. She didn’t want to be a part of it.”
Yikes! Oh..and there’s more…
Said source also claims the “BBHMM” singer had second thoughts over Ye’s wife Kim Kardashian’s fame and huge following. The OK source said, “She didn’t want Kim to interfere with her work or her image.”
Hmph. That’s not too hard to believe…
We’re not sure how hot this tea is for the fact that a joint tour was never officially confirmed. So sip as you may….We reached out to Roc Nation and have not received a response as of the time of this post.
Meanwhile on Instagram:
Bad Gal RiRi has copped her a new mouthpiece. The Bajan beauty flossed her Dolly Cohen grill “with a piercing” for the ‘Gram. She captioned, “my grill got a piercing”
Are we feelin’ her new lip jewelry?
In other Roc Nation news…..
If you’ve decided to join TIDAL, you may be interested in reading this.
TIDAL owner Jay Z, who acquired the service for $56 million in March, is personally calling subscribers thanking them for using the music stream service. Yes, Hov is making house calls!
TIDAL executive Vania Schlogel confirmed the news to Business Insider saying, “….He called some of his fans and one of them made the funniest comment. He said ‘This is the best customer service call I’ve ever received!'”
And Jay isn’t the only one picking up the phone. Rocker Jack White is also calling TIDAL fans. We learn that the artists actually have access to see subscriber’s contact information so that artists can get in touch with them directly. Hmmm…
The musicians can also track who well their albums are performing, and statistics on the quantity of streams.
We wonder if Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole or any of the others will be hopping on their “customer service” duties any time soon. Are you a TIDAL subscriber? We may become one if Bey decides to pick up the phone…
