A joint tour between Kanye West and Lady Gaga which the latter described as completely “gay” has been cancelled.

The super-tour was announced recently but promoter Live Nation has issued no reason as to why it has been scrapped.

However, some critics have suggested that West may be taking a break following his outburst at the MTV awards, where he stole the mic off country singer Taylor Swift.

Lady Gaga said she had warned West that she had a large gay following and that the show would remain gay to keep her fans happy.

In an interview with Out magazine, she said she told him: “I just want to be clear before we decide to do this together: I’m gay. My music is gay. My show is gay. And I love that it’s gay. And I love my gay fans and they’re all going to be coming to our show. And it’s going to remain gay.”

She added: “I very much want to inject gay culture into the mainstream. It’s not an underground tool for me. It’s my whole life. So I always sort of joke the real motivation is to just turn the world gay.”
