I was going to try and think of some wonderfully witty headline, but I think in this case, short and succinct works best. Beyonce was supposed to perform at a club in New York tomorrow night. She was paid $200,000 for the appearance and even posted the event on her website. The owner of the club told The NY Post that on Wednesday Beyonce's people called and said they were going to have to cancel. They claimed they didn't have enough time because they are preparing for her tour. Instead, they did offer to come by the club for an hour and mingle with people.
The owner of this club spent $100K on everything that Beyonce demanded in her rider. He sold tables and tickets and was counting on this concert for the grand opening of the new club M2. How is that Beyonce is so busy preparing for her tour that she can't come sing for an hour or so on Saturday night but can find time to do a meet and greet on Sunday? I will tell you why, because she doesn't want to work on a Saturday night for what is probably not enough money to her. Instead she wants to show up on a Sunday night and sit in a roped off VIP area talking to her bodyguards and collecting $200K for doing absolutely nothing.
Does anyone really think that she would walk around the club for an entire hour and mix with people? Does anyone seriously believe that? Does she think we are stupid? The club owner is pissed and rightly so. He says he is going to sue her and he should. Plus, what is the deal in canceling 72 hours before the show? It isn't like she is sick or anything. Hasn't she already been performing this tour? I would think they are pretty much ready to go. I think the issue is that Beyonce limits herself to no more than one hour of activity each day and she probably had a spa appointment or something for Saturday and was going to be drained after that.
I hate Beyonce.
