TWISTA DROPPED FROM MCDONALD’S TOUR

SORRY TWISTA, MICKEY D’S IS NOT “LOVIN IT!” » McDonald’s has pulled rapper Twista from their free 10-city parking lot tour, citing the Chicago-based hip-hop artist’s “controversial lyrics.” Twista had been scheduled to perform August 7 in Chicago as part of the multi-genre McDonald’s Live jaunt, which started July 26 in Venice, California, and continues through September 25 in Austin, Texas. Negotiations are still pending for a replacement headliner in Chicago. “Although we respect free speech and artistic expression, we do not condone or perpetuate derogatory language,” McDonald’s USA said in a statement. “We want to ensure these free concerts are fun as well as appropriate for all of our customers.” Representatives for Twista were not available for comment at press time. If they knew he had “bad words” in his songs why put him on the roster in the first place?

DIDDY MOVES FROM A-LIST TO B-LIST

DIDDY STEPS DOWN ON THE SOCIAL LADDER » Diddy who? That’s how it was a few nights ago at a club in St. Tropez. Ha, and he calls himself the “king of parties!” Sources at St. Tropez hotspot Les Caves revealed to PAGE SIX that the once regular was refused a table this past Thursday night. “He is so B-List here,” said the snitch. “No one even acknowledges him.” The second-rate treatment was a steep fall from the days of 2003, when Diddy first landed at the French resort with a full-time entourage that included a personal umbrella carrier named Fonzworth Bentley (I haven’t seen him around Diddy in a minute LOL). Some celeb-followers are questioning Diddy’s very existence in the South of France beaches. “Nobody goes out there until the first and second week of August,” one snitch said. “Maybe he’s afraid he’ll get lost in the crowd once all the real celebs show up.” — FUNNY SHIT!
