Anita Loses Face

Anita Baker is in the midst of a farewell tour.  Where is she going?  And why?  No one knows.  Her opening act is Babyface – who is actually the co-headliner since he’s probably a bigger name than her.  The twosome were due to appear at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ last week.  The show was delayed two hours due to “technical difficulties” – which I hear stem from a malfunctioning video wall at the back of Baker’s set.  Because of this snafu, Baker asked Babyface not to perform – because the show had to end at the scheduled time or it would result in enormous overtime (once again, a union thing).  Babyface let people know this was not his choice.  “I was asked not to perform in order to give Ms. Baker her space and time to perform her show in its entirety.  My band and I are extremely saddened we didn’t get to perform for y’all tonight.”  His fans were pissed and, let’s face it – most of the audience was there to see him, anyway.  Someone pointed out that the diva has done this before.  “Anita Baker needs to stop having Co-headliners if she going to continue to act this way.  She did this a while back with Maxwell.”  I say Maxwell and Babyface should do their own tour!
