Brandy’s ego bruised as she plays to empty stadium the word

Poor Brandy. The singer performed to an empty, 90,000-capacity stadium last weekend in Johannesburg, South Africa, as part of the Man-

dela Sports & Culture Day. Due to poor publicity, the crowd left after the football and rugby matches, not realizing — or maybe they did? — that Brandy was set to perform. Per the tweet of @Kabomo, a South African musician, “Brandy performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on. She sulked after two songs and walked off.” Which, you know, is more than I would have done. I would have looked out and hightailed it to a bar where I would then sit for the next 30 years of my life and think about how it all went wrong.

Kanye faces lawsuit after allegedly punching paparazzo Kanye West is facing a lawsuit from a paparazzo over allegedly attacking him outside Los Angeles International Airport, according to TMZ. Plaintiff Daniel Ramos claims that “without warning or provocation,” West “suddenly attacked, punching (the plaintiff) and attempting to wrestle the camera from” Ramos’ hands, according to the filing. Ramos’ attorney, Gloria Allred, claims that Ramos fell to his knees on the ground “with enough force that he sustained injuries to his right hip, as well as accompanying pain and emotional distress.” He is seeking unspecified damages.
