The Fat and Sexy Tour is Canceled


Seems Maxwell and Jill Scott just couldn't get along.
If you have tickets for any Jill Scott / Maxwell concert after June 26 you can hang it up. They say Maxwell is refusing to finish the tour because he, Jill Scott and sometime tour mate Erykah Badu just can't get along.

Between Jill and Erykah repeatedly staying on stage way past their allotted times and Maxwell's amazing divatude it was bound to end in tears.

OH FOR REAL? Let's hear it for real music! Meanwhile Rihanna is chugging right along.

I just saw them last month and their chemistry was great! Jill even came in the audience and watched Maxwell perform after her set! IDK about this one. . .

Soulwriter said...

They were just here in Dallas last week, didn't give the press NO love as far as shooting the performannce....*sigh*. Almost makes me wish I'd bitten the bullet and paid for one of their (outrageous!!!) seats....almost. Oh well....

For the sake of the fans, I hope all the women get it together.

Ain't nobody messing up my money!!
Folks need to learn to get along.
Put up a curtain so you don't have to see each other like Anita and Luther had to do when they didn't get along.

Didn't even know there was a tour. Tour=fail.

Revolutionatrix said...

I love that it's been dubbed since the beginning as the "Fat And Sexy Tour"

I'll be there on the 25th!!

I wanted to get my boo and me some ticket but listening to this I guess I am glad that I did not and many times there ticket place do not refund people back there money either.. I think when artist do tours together they need to make sure that they can perform together..

ANN said...

Once again Black folks who can't stick together.

How many times do you here of John Mayor cancelling his tour because he can't get along with..say...Christina Aguilera? OR Ricky Martin cancelling his show because he can't get along with J-lo?

Always has to be black folks. SMH.

Anonymous said...

It's probably being cancelled because of tour sales. I could believe this story if both Erykah and Jill were touring together but they are touring seperately with Maxwell being the only main stay.

Fat & Sexy Tour??? OMG!!! Funny and oh so wrong.

NubianGoddez said...

Damn can't we all just get along??

BLUEBUNNY said...

LIGHT THE HERB, PUFF, PUFF, PASS, AND CHILL. DAMN AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE NEO-SOUL/COOL BLACK PEOPLE TOUR.

Saw them June 5th at Staples Center and it was a good show. I have seen Max about half a dozen times and he is always on point and gives a good show.

Jill was good too but she did stay on stage a while - she was the opener so her set should have been shorter than Max.

I just feel bad for all the musicians and crew that will be out of money. Live Nation ain't paying shit if they don't sell tickets.

♥ Bee said...

Sucks to be them.

Peachizz said...

WOW... I just saw them her in Miami, He gave her "Big-Ups" and all... it was great!!! So I thought???? Guess I was wrong...

Anonymous said...

Saw them at Staple Center in Los Angeles 6/6/10 and Jill did perform almost as long as he did but I didn't find a problem with it. I enjoyed both of them, but I have to say Maxwell makes it happen. My girl was all over me after the concert.

I guess that Rihanna stan is overjoyed about hearing this one...

YOU not having a problem with it isn't the ISSUE

Headliners HEADLINE and The Others performers follow suit ESPECIALLY Opening Act Performers and these things are AGREED UPON per the concert contracts

Anonymous said...

If their tour is being canceled, it is NOT what y'all reporting. They are professionals and have mad respect for each others' talent. I don't believe for a second they would cancel and tour because of some petty mess. Y'all need to stop insulting the intelligence of the audience as well as the artists. smh

Anonymous said...

i went to ticketmaster and the only show that is cancelled is tommorrow's show. the other tickets are still available. the only other source for this "news" is dimewars so far so i am not trusting that the tour is over just yet

YOU BET I AM. All this talk about "real music" and this queen and fatty can't put aside their egos to finish a two-month tour?

Meanwhile Rihanna continues on, even changing dates to support her Latino fan base in Arizona.

But I bet the real reason the "Fat and Queeny Tour" is canceled is because the remaining dates are in parts of the country where they are not popular enough to fill the venue. Of course an R&B bill will do well in NYC, LA, Atlanta and Philly.

HATERS STAY PRESSED. THAT RIHANNA REIGN JUST WONT LET UP. <3

lilioohpyt said...

wow I would have never thought that Jill and Maxwell would have Diva attitudes...but hmpf guess if you can't beat em join em.....I really wanted to go see this tour but if they can't get along to make money i'm cool wit missing the b-fits....

Gotta love those Rih-tarded Stans. Last time I checked this post wasn't about fucking Rihanna.Too bad Chris Brown didn't go upside her head even worse. At least she'd be layed up in a hospital instead of struggling to sell tickets for her talentless rih-diculous tour. Calling Maxwell a queen??? Who the hell cares what sexuality he is. Homophobia isn't cute. Besides, most of Rih-cycle's fans are homos.

Ooh! Same thing happened back in the day with Luther Vandross & EnVogue! Cain't have two Queens! :-D

smilie face said...

Aint shit sexy about Maxwell, Jill or Eryka. All three of them wanna be afrocentric, neo soul singing, fraudulent shit lickers need to stfu and earn their fuking checks.

@5:07 PM AKA THIRSTY ASS

I was responding to someone who brought up Rihanna and a conversation from a previous post.

Second, advocating violence isn't cute either, sweetie.

I don't care if Maxwell is gay but he does act like a QUEEN on occasion. And if he is in a diva match with another FEMALE artist then the word QUEEN is apropos.

Struggling to sell tickets? LOL, where is your evidence? LGOE was sold out all across Europe - outside of Beyonce what other black artist can sell out stadiums in fucking Ireland?? Certainly not FATTY and QUEEN.

Your honor, the defense rests.

I went to the concert in Seattle!! The shit was off the fucking glass! Jill Shows are the one, she is singing the hell out of thoes songs!!! Maxwell seem gay to me, we left half way through his act, he seemed a lil boring,!!!! It was good while it lasted!!

Anonymous said...

I paid to see Jill,but got an experience with Maxwell 5/30/10. Loved,loved,loved them both. Wasn't (I repeat) wasn't a fan of Maxwell at all! But my friends kept telling me how good he was an I must say at the end of his performance. I became a fan. Hate that Ericka didn't come but oh well. I hope they can resolve their issue. Really a must see. I really enjoyed myself.

This is a LIE!!!!!
The reason it was RESCHEDULED was because Maxwell wanted the new tour dates to coincide with his new album; coming out later this year!!!!

Calling someone a "queen" doesn't make a person homophobic.

This is NOT a court room. This is a GOSSIP blog. If you don't like my comment. Take your Rih-cycle worshiping ass somewhere else.

P.S. Rihanna may have sold out in Europe, but she can't in AMERICA. We all know European standards are lower so #kanyeshrug

Anonymous said...

@5:36 PM
Hate to break it to you but Rihanna did NOT sell out all her European tour dates. Many concert-goers reported that half the seats were empty. Nicki Minaj pulled out of the tour and she isn't even as big as Rihanna. The best she could get for an opening act was Ke$ha???? Come on now lol

Bee Gee said...

Glad I'ont mess with concerts. D.C. Jazz Festival is always the right move though. Jillie n'em can get the gas face.

Children, I could see Jill have a nasty attitude ever since her bad acting debut for Tyler Perry...lol....You can't tell her nothing now honey.Plus, a while back she was talking off the wall about race and all kinds of nonsense when she should be talking about water and salads and leave race & love up to God....Now Badu has always been off and has three baby dads to prove it! Nooone has stuck around! I can believe she is hard to deal with as well with her purple haze.She tries to pretend she is so deep but falls for the first knuckle head who acts odd and lets him go in raw....Maxwell actually appears to be the only one in the set with sense.I dont blame him for quitting if I have to perform last and your set is an hour then dog gone it you need to exit the stage so I can to my show and go home!

Anonymous said...

Actually, I just called the promoter. (personal friend.) Jill was only scheduled to be on the tour until June 25th. After that, the tickets for the remaining shows did not sell well. All the performers on the tour were professionals and artists.

Anonymous said...

In some citied shows were added on, so it's all about geographical location, and 1:28 PM, what makes you think it is about race? Don't be so quick to take it there.

This post is suspect. Maxwell has been touring almost 2 years. Everybody that wants to see him has. I loved his show.

It's really a shame all that talent and can't get along and make that money.LOL

THis reminds me when Luther and Anita Baker had that famous falling out during a tour..hmmm.could this prove that Maxwell is gay?

Quiana said...

love them when they came out here.

Nzugu said...

I actually saw Maxwell and Jill Scott at the Oracle Arena June 4th, and they were great. Maxwell even complimented Scott, saying it was hard to follow such a strong performance. Don't know what possible drama that could come of it.

NO, this could prove that Maxwell is a truly grown man and won't take none of these females' bullshit

THIS sounds more believable.

Many artists these days (including the better ones) aren't selling out their concerts due to the horrible economy. Jill & Maxwell together are worth the money, but seperately I don't see either artist selling out their concerts right now.

Heather said...

^^^^^ I actually believe this.... I saw them in concert last month and it was all good. Both were very gracious toward each other...

Anonymous said...

i am glad that Jill is so flyy that she could care less about being called "fat" even by her own people. The way her co-star who played her husband in the Why Did I Get Married movies tongue was wagging at the sight of her when Tyler Perry interviewed them made me want to be just like her!! Haters will be Haters though so what can we expect. I love Jill, Erykah and Maxwell so i hope that they can get it together for the sake of their craft.

Well, they must be great actors, cuz I just saw the concert and they had wonderful chemistry; I was informed the shows were cancelled because of some venue issues

STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING ON THESE MESSY ASS SITES. WHY IS IT CALLED FAT AND SEXY YOU BASTARDS I SWEAR. IT GIVES PPL SOMETHING TO BITCH ABOUT.

ATTN" OUR WATER IS BEING SO DAMAGE ITS HURTING WILDLIFE, OUR FOOD, AND WATER SUPPLY. STOP CARING ABOUT THIS GARBAGE. OUR LIVELY HOOD IS BEING DESTROYED BEYOND REPAIR. THE OIL RIG CATCHING FIRE WAS IN THE MOVIE THE KNOWING MEANING THIS IS ALL APART OF THEIR PLAN. WAKE THE HELL UP.

Anonymous said...

Nope...not buyin this one, saw them in Dallas on the 8th, chemistry was en pointe. Gave major kudos to each other.
Low ticket sales? eh.....maybe, diva-tudes? doubt it. Erykah had her own show here on Monday night, so cant speak on that one.

Badu ain't trippin off maxwell..her tour is selling out across the country...and she gives a damn good show!

I remember when Luther came to Philly on tour with Anita Baker, that was a great show. They were so professional you could not believe they had such disdain for each other. My sisters have tickets to see Maxwell and Jill Scott in Philly this Saturday(6/19/10). I'll see what they say about the show.

Anonymous said...

Say it like it is..BADU and JILL divatudes and attitudes clashing caused him to quit

Anonymous said...

...and that's a damn shame.

Cause I saw their show on 6/5/10 at the Staples Center and it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love Maxwell, I really do, but JILL SCOTT IS OFF THE CHAINS IN CONCERT!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!!!!
