    Looks like South Africa is running like a top these days.

    DID Brandy play to a stadium of 89,960 empty seats?
    That's what the Twitterverse is saying after reports the singer performed to just 40 people in a 90,000 capacity arena at the Mandela Sports and Culture Day in South Africa on Saturday.
    The American R&B star was the surprise guest at the FNB stadium in Soweto - the only problem was that no-one knew she was playing.
    Tens of thousands of people had therefore left the arena before she arrived on stage.
    "Brandy [just] performed to an empty stadium. With the stadium lights on," tweeted South African musician, Kabomo.
    "People didn't know there was a concert after the games. No one knew Brandy was around. Maybe a 40 people audience ... She sulked after two songs and walked off.
    "There are more people there on a random Tuesday... Depressing."
    Added @My2_Melo: "I gave up the min I saw the empty stadium. Brandy performing for the chairs!"
    While @dawn_ngwenya said: "Brandy is going to perform for herself and Mbaks only," referring to South Africa's minister of sport, Fikile Mbalula.
    The singer reportedly walked off in embarrassment after just two songs.
    The country's national TV channel SABC reportedly also ended their broadcast of the concert before Brandy could even emerge on stage.

    Last time I was at Disneyland a couple of months ago, she and her family were allowed to cut in front of us on the Matterhorn ride. My wife was the only one who recognized her.

    She's a fine girl; what a good wife she would be (if only my life, my lover, my lady was not the sea)

    Not really a story in that it's not like it was her concert and only 40 showed up. The idiots running the show just forgot to tell anyone she was a surprise added guest. It's all on them, Brandy is a bad driver, but shouldn't be embarassed by this.

    That's some serious shit. Why the hell would they let her cut in line? You gotta be careful there - you'll get shived for cutting in line.

    You see Robin, even globally, all these types of shows are on a slide, in the sense that... they are not doing well world wide.

    Bad Driver is the guy running Howard 100 News, but no one has ever seen him. How is that possible?

    shes paid to do the whole set. most musicians would do a whole show even for 1 person, as they should.
    people in every other job have to finish in bad situations
