The Daily Dig: Smashed Brickz and Kanye mouths off

2009-09-14 07:56

Broken Brickz
Kwaito cat Brickz got 'bliksemed' at his show in Botswana this weekend, according to Sunday World. The serial no-show artist was tracked down by some local concert promoters who had lost some serious cash due to the star's lack of commitment.
Brickz was scheduled to play two separate shows in Botswana two years ago. He was paid, but he never pitched. Promoters Rudeboy and Kisawo found out that he was back in their country for another show, and decided to get their payback by having him roughed up outside the venues.
Botswana artists Stagga and Scar managed to rescue him for long enough so that he could perform his scheduled show, but after that he was beaten yet again and apparently dropped off at a local police station. Eish – this cat's got nine lives!

Obviously Brickz was not available for comment – probably because his face looks like a punching bag. 

Kanye likes to steal from little girls
Yip, that's right, Kanye is being his usual pissy self, and what a better platform than last night's MTV VMAs to display this 'trait'.
During sweetie-pie Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for "Best Female Video", wicked West stole her shine when he grabbed her mic and basically said Beyonce should have won! He chirped "Yo Taylor. I’m really happy for you. I’m gonna let you finish but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!” Poor Taylor was left speechless.

Check out this A-Class A-hole:

All was not lost though… Beyonce saved the day (and probably her reputation) when she won the award for "Best Video of the Year" for "Single Ladies" and invited Taylor on stage to finally have her moment! Ag, sweet man… But had she not, the paps would have been all over her booty for a comment on Kanye's cocky behaviour. She should just get Jay-Z to 'sort' Kanye out like he did Chris Brown. Bad boys, bad boys…

Zola is in the news again…
Well well – publicity stunt or bonafide bad boy? We think the former.
The latest skandaal to mar the kwaito star's rep is an email doing its rounds in the media from a former girlfriend that's claiming he's a ladies' man. Uh… is this news to her? Where's she been hiding?
The unidentified 'sender' has been naming and shaming, and also reveals that the exes plan to record a TV show called "Zola 7's X-Girlfriends". And she really thinks she's 'hurting' him.

Meow! Pussycat Doll dumped
Nicole Scherzinger has lost the one credible thing in her celebrity life – her rich, racing-car-driver boyfriend, Lewis Hamilton.
The toyboy dumped his older lady because he wasn't ready to "leave his youth behind". We're thrilled – she is way too old and nasty for him! But remember Lewis, if you stop playing with Dolls, you're going to have to grow up sometime.
