Beyonce ditches NYC club on eve of show



Tbd-beyonce062209 Beyonce Knowles has quite the reputation as a diva, and the latest report that she pulled out of a $200,000 club appearance won't be helping that. And she seemed like such a nice girl.

Joey Morrissey, owner of M2 nightclub in Manhattan, says he agreed to pay the singer the six-figure sum for a show on Saturday in advance of her North American tour, but Beyonce called the whole thing off at the last minute.

"They said they were too busy with the launching of the tour and that they wouldn't have time to do the kickoff party," Morrissey told the New York Post. Her solution? She would come by "to hang out for an hour" -- on Sunday.

"We sold tables for thousands of dollars for the show, and spent $100,000 renting a soundboard and other equipment, as per their stipulations," Morrissey said. "What good does her showing up for an hour do me? They've been totally unwilling to agree to another show."

Well, if nothing else, it got you in the New York Post. Something tells us there's a reason why the West 27th Street location used to be popular clubs Crobar and Mansion but lost both.
