Scissor Sisters Told to Tone It Down

Categories: Scissor Sisters

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.

I guess any future recording collaboration between Scissor Sisters and Gaga is out of the question.

I think to make up for toning it down Jake should perform naked.

People forget, or don't know, that Lady Gaga knew the Scissor Sisters back before she was famous while living in NYC. Jake Shears and a couple other bandmates have been doing this longer than Gaga, though and this is currently their 3rd album. In saying that, the Scissor Sisters are absolutely amazing and this "decision" was most likely pressed on by the produces and not Gaga; Gaga really has no say in what the producers say or do because they are the PRODUCERS.

Luckily, Gaga has a say in who opens up for her - seeing that Semi Precious Weapons AND Scissor Sisters have been friends of hers for years.

The item sounds like it was the producer, not Gaga who decreed this, so so stop with the Gaga bashing. She's done a lot of good.

Well, they should have realized that as an opening act you don't get the privileges of a headliner. I'm surprised they took the gig, actually.
