Scissor Sisters Told to Tone It Down
The Scissor Sisters have been opening for Lady Gaga on the Monster's Ball Tour, which sounds like a good fit, though I hear the producer, LiveNation, asked the Scissors to take a bit of a scissor to their production values.
In other words, the falsetto-based dance group was supposedly asked to scale their show down a notch so as not to upset the balance of the evening and to maintain Gaga as the evening's reigning sparkle queen!
My source swears this has led to some bad feelings backstage.
Well, the sound of audiences screaming and cheering all over the place will hopefully lessen the blow.
