[Village Voice] Which Oscar winner tried to take her kids backstage to meet the stars of a show they’d just seen, but was completely unrecognized by security, who told her she could just wait by the stage door like everyone else?

CDAN – This B list rap star who also acts in movies and even on Broadway was scheduled to do a tour of Australia. The thing is he told the promoter one thing who went out and sold a bunch of tickets and then two days before the show said he was not going to be able to make it and could the promoter reschedule the entire festival for our rapper. Umm, no.
Our rapper has his tour rescheduled to fit his new dates. The problem is he decides he does not want to get on the plane in the US so the dates are postponed again and again and again. A few of the shows which had to be postponed are charity concerts that the rapper wanted set up in the first place. Meanwhile, our rapper did find time to dance on stage with Prince in New York.

He also canceled random shows and has just been the biggest pain in the butt ever and caused the promoter of all these shows to shut down his business.

The actress shot him a threatening look and replied “Yes, but that information better stay right here or you’re fired.”
Name the TV Pilot, the actor, the actress, and the pop diva.
BlindGossip – Theatergoers are still wondering if this actor-cum-producer was high when he was casting an award-winning Broadway musical. It’s not that his choice wasn’t qualified. She does have plenty of musical experience. She also has a reputation as a party girl and managed to uphold that reputation by arriving to rehearsals both late and drunk. A little bribing by her publicist and several threats by her agent convinced the producer not to replace her.
