There's talk that a Maroon 5 concert, scheduled for September in Shanghai has been cancelled due to one of the band members having tweeted birthday wishes to the Dalai Lama.
Can I just say how cool it would be to live in a world where you can get out of your commitments simply by tweeting a birthday wish to someone? It would make those awkward family events, or those invites where your friends are staging a play and you have no interest whatsoever in feigning interest unnecessary. Simply tweet away and be unceremoniously uninvited. Presto!
If Maroon 5 would like any consolation from the hit their bank account is about to take (the concert was sold out), then at least they can consider the fact that they are joining the ranks of Bjork and, um, Kenny G. More here.
