When this news broke I seriously wanted to shout from the rooftops, 'Would you wise up'.
This happened me with #ladygaga in November 2019.
NO JOKE I WAS LIVID!
Was there a big deal made of it in the media ????
No and the reason I think because she was a different nationality.
Brave statement I hear you say. But when this news broke last week of Adele it was as if it was pure crisis material.
And yes I GET IT!
My husband and I decided to go to #vegas for his 40th, we stayed at the #CosmopolitanVegas for 1 week while my sister-in-law minded all 4 kids. God love her lol as I swear the taxi runs/activities were mental.
But one Saturday night back in August 2019 I looked up the shows of who was performing and we thought we will never get this chance again so we thought what the hell and the tickets cost a fortune, no joke. Not that they were super seats, just the price of them was mental.
So it literally was the night of his #40thbirthday and I didn't mind sharing him with another woman just this once lol. I will never forget it, we were coming down the stairs from #STK and I was literally coming off the escalator and I got a notification from my bank that I had a refund from Ticketmaster and my stomach churned. I knew.
#LadyGaga had cancelled her concert that night due to Bronchitis.
I actually wanted too cry I was so disappointed, we booked this holiday that we won’t really repeat until the kids are older (you try to get 4 kids minded for a week lol).
And she CANCELLED ONLY ONE NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like seriously, the one night that we picked. I don't want too type the words that I used. RAGING!!!!!!!!!
So when Adele cancelled a whole tour, in one sense , fair play, the whole thing didn't sit right with her.
But the furore. What are we teaching our kids?
Regardless the show must go on?
NO!!!!! I disagree. I ALWAYS tell my kids don't do something to please others. Be assertive . and yet the backlash this woman is getting for standing up and saying 'I am in my power and I don't want to go on' and she is crucified for it.
Obviously it boils down to money and that people have lost out, and I GET IT!
But seriously, can we not teach our kids that's its ok to say No and you won't please everyone ?
That makes me sad as a Woman and as a Mum raising 4 kids.
