Demi Lovato’s dancers get less than bargained for
Demi Lovato and crew put on a fantastic show at Little Caesars Arena on Tuesday night, even though three of her dancers experienced a hair disaster just prior to the performance. Realizing they were coming to Detroit, often considered to be one of the hair capitals of the world, the dancers decided to get their hair braided when they arrived. They hired a recommended hairstylist to braid three heads for $700, which they paid. The end result, according to the dancers, was a complete mess. So much so, they all took the braids out before hitting the stage. Yikes!
Stormy Daniels falls ill, postpones Detroit gig
Porn star Stormy Daniels postponed her appearance at Detroit’s Truth gentlemen’s club Wednesday night because of illness. “Her lawyer says she has strep throat,” says Joe Mooravian, the club’s general manager, who scheduled the appearance. “We do a WCW Wednesday, featuring a different porn star each Wednesday. Everyone was real excited about Stormy, because she’s a big deal in the business, aside from the thing with the president. Daniels filed suit last week against President Donald Trump, stating that Trump never signed a hush agreement to keep her quiet late in the 2016 campaign about an alleged sexual encounter between the two. Mooravian said Stormy’s appearance will be rescheduled within the next two weeks.
