Chris Brown Forced to Cancel UK Leg of Tour

This poor guy just can't catch a break.

Chris has been forced to cancel his mostly sold-out tour in the UK due to issues surrounding his work visa. Presumably these issues relate to the fact that he has had criminal charges brought against him in the USA (Rihanna ring a bell).

The tour was set to start this week in Glasgow and Chris himself took to his twitter account to issue an apology:

SORRY to all the fans in europe!!! my tour is cancelled. Im pretty sure yall know.
my entry was denied in your country.

I feel sorry for Chris sometimes when I consider he was a young guy who made a mistake and is seemingly trying to get his career and life back on track. It's like everytime he takes one step forward something else pulls him two steps back.

I wonder how many fans have been disappointed by this news.

Backstreet Boys are now Free

After 16 years with pop label Jive, the Backstreet Boys have parted ways with the company that made them famous and helped distribute their hits such as As Long As You Love Me, I Want It That Way and Larger Than Life.

In a statement released by the group the boys had this to say via their website:

So the news is out! The Backstreet Boys are no longer signed to long time record label Jive Records. The amicable split is very exciting for the group. "This is the best thing, at the best time that could have ever happened for us”, says Brian Littrell. “We are confident in the future of our band, and are looking forward to the new things to come. 2011 is going to be a great year for us!”

The boys have released 9 studio albums under Jive's management which includes their greatest hits compilations album which was released in 2001.

Personally I really don't care who the guys are signed with once they keep putting out music I'm happy.
