Swifties Hit Live Nation
Some Taylor Swift fans are not letting Live Nation off the hook after last month's ticket debacle for her upcoming The Eras Tour. Millions of Swifties were unable to get through to Ticketmaster after demand exceeded available supply. Now, more than two dozen would-be buyers are suing Ticketmaster's parent company Live Nation for "unlawful conduct." The suit essentially accuses the live event organizer of being anti-competitive and noted that Swift has no choice but to work with the company, owing to deals in place with many stadiums that are slated for tour stops.
Mindy Kaling on Cancel Culture
Former star of The Office Mindy Kaling said that the famed show would not be able to exist with today's social standards. Kaling, who played sassy staffer Kelly Kapoor and was a writer on the show, told Good Morning America that "the show is so inappropriate now" and noted how people's taste in comedy has changed over the years. The U.S. version of sitcom premiered on NBC in 2005 and wrapped up in 2013. "Actually, most of the characters on that show would probably be canceled by now," she said.
Britney on Broadway
The life of Britney Spears is set to be dramatized and shaped with a slate of musical numbers on the Great White Way. The curtains will rise for Once Upon a One More Time on Broadway in the summer of 2023. Preview shows begin in May, so there's still plenty of time to save up your coins and secure your spot at the Marquis Theatre. The show, which is being billed as a comedy, is about breaking away from the expectations of society and reclaiming happiness. Spears' smash hits like Oops!... I Did It Again, Lucky, and Toxic will have fans dancing at their seats.
