This is a straight rip from the UK newspaper 'The Sun'. They're known for their exaggerated-to-the-point-of-complete-fabrication celebrity stories. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Well the tabloids might be full of it, but is he not one of the most megalomaniac, space-brained spoiled brat pampered popstars still? I mean the dude lives in a fantasy world bubble - it's part of his schtick.

Of course. But credit where credit's due. This article is trash. The Guardian story... we'll that's a different kettle of fish.

so if the article is to be believed, the organizers thought he was important enough to custom build a dressing room 3 times and rent a limo to drive him 100 feet, but then turned around and limited the time he was allowed to perform to less time than he wanted?
