    Is it an indication of Lights’ arrogance or laziness that she has done so little to promote the Lilith tour, which she is playing in? Interesting that the “Lilith Fair… was first seen as one of the summer’s most anticipated tours, but has been struggling from the outset of the season. Some have blamed high ticket prices — while others have blamed the lineup’s lack of sizzle.” Even Canada’s biggest pop star?

    Well, it looks like the music career thing isn’t paying off. The 15 minutes are almost over. Jian must be wondering what he was thinking, putting his life on hold for 9 years for her.

    Is there some other person doing backing vocals in @lights songs? I keep hearing a guy voice. (I’m talking about the studio versions btw)

    Apparently, it’s Dave Thompson (with whom Lights also writes with). So remind me, how is she doing this “all by herself”?

        She was on vacation. Vacationing in L.A. is the trendy thing to do for Canadian “celebrities” like George Strombolopolos, Jian Ghomeshi and Lights. Plus there’s always the hope that they’ll be “discovered”. George hangs out on Santa Monica Blvd. waiting to be discovered every night. He’s met a few “producers” and had a few “auditions”.

    Contrast Olivia’s gracious acceptance of a designer’s dress without criticism to Lights’ giving Roxy a hard time (& glad she wasn’t “murdered”). She even says: “I thought I was gonna hate it.” What an ATTITUDE! Lights actually out-bitched Olivia & Roxy!

    Roxy should have cut holes in green garbage bag, handed it to Lights, and said “this is probably the look you’re going for, honey”.

      Lights and Jian are always trying to get people to give them things. They’re glorified beggars.

      Lights Lilith Fair tour dates were being cancelled, which jeopardized Jian’s summer vacation plans. What does Jian do? He schedules a six date acoustic tour of coffeehouses in cities like New York, San Fran & LA. And then on June 23rd he got his Radio Starmaker Fund to pay for it. A free vacation for Jian.

This time it’s a “solo” acoustic tour to support a CD that she’ll be giving away at her shows. A “solo” solo synth pop artist doing an acoustic tour for a CD that she’ll be giving away for free!? How the hell did he sell that one to the board!?

            She can’t be making much money. Her music doesn’t sell so she doesn’t make it from that. And she flies to LA and New York to play coffee houses? I doubt that she’d make enough from the gig to pay for the travel & various other expenses.

            I think that a lot of the touring that she does is more for her and Jian’s vanity than anything else. If they didn’t scramble to put together this joke of an acoustic tour, she would only be playing 6 gigs total the entire summer…..which wouldn’t look good for a supposedly “big pop star”.

    I saw no difference from Lights on The City to the way that she’s always been. Lights has never been the least bit modest or humble and is incredibly self-absorbed. A quick glance at her Twitter page shows that. Her only concerns are “I, Me, My,”. She’s always exaggerated her “success” and acted like she was a “Big Pop Star” and is still doing so even though she gets money from Factor & Starmaker Fund and her album hasn’t been on the charts since the first week that it came out. She wasn’t even the main attraction at “her show” on The City. It was Owl City’s show.

      She thinks the jacket is the issue. It’s not. The BIG issue was her attitude. She was arrogant, rude, self-centered, ungrateful and mean, among other things.

      Roxy brings her free clothes to her dressing room and she derisively refers to them as “From Le Whitney Show”.

      And how many times did she say “It’s important for ME”, “It’s important that I”, in other words “I’m the only one that matters”.

      And making faces at Whitney’s designs? How rude.

      All that Lights and Jian care about now is trying to clear up the jacket incident (as if that was the only misleading thing from that show).

      How about Kelly saying that “she’s one of the biggest pop stars in Canada” (not even close)?

      Or that the whole episode had the ridiculous premise that Whitney desperately wanted “big pop star Lights” to wear her clothes on stage (at a concert where in reality she played for just 30 minutes as one of two opening acts for Owl City).

      Jian and Lights have no problem lying or having people lie for them. They only have a problem when it doesn’t benefit them.

    @michelleanders @jianghomeshi really then you should tell anna wintour, ellE mag, zac posen, manolo blahnik – the same – get a life (20 minutes ago by @peoplesrev)

    the best defence is a good offense…right kelly? if you haven’t noticed, jian is not in the “fashion” world like anna, elle, zac, manolo, so you can’t compare them. there are different standards for CBC hosts of art & culture (one would hope).

      Silly people. Of course you throw your jacket on the floor when you’re a rock star.
      That’s how you show your disdain for material possessions.
      Rock n roll isn’t about “stuff”.
      And if you’re super rich, you throw the jacket into the crowd.
      But LIGHTS needs the wardrobe, and besides, aren’t they getting this clothes for free?
      That’s the SpongeBob way, is it not?
      And surely Jian knows something about legitimate sponging. It’s one Factor.
      He also probably gets a free subscription to the National Post, the paper they can’t even give away.
      Doubt that he has a subscription to The Guardian though.

    Isn’t this show is going to have the opposite effect & make Jian/Lights look like losers?

      I think so. They’ll certainly be a few jokes at Jian & Lights expense at the next Radio Starmaker Fund Board of Directors meeting when Jian makes his case for why a “big pop star” like Lights needs funding.

    Roxy and Whitney were probably happy when Jian left town. I’m sure they were both nauseous after having a middle aged Iranian man “flirt” with them all weekend.

      It looks like Roxy was avoiding eye contact with Jian in that scene at the clothing rack. I take it that means that she was already disgusted by him at that point.

        Roxy was probably thinking “if Kelly didn’t want Jian to do her, I wouldn’t have to be here dealing with these low-rent schmoozers who are mooching off of Whitney & me!”

          Roxy and Whitney are super troopers. It must have been really difficult for them to pretend to give a shit about a couple of Canadian nobodies pretending to be big stars.

            On the show, Ke$ha (a REAL pop star) is professional & easy to work with. LIGHTS comes off as a diva (no! I won’t wear your clothes! they aren’t rock & roll enough for me!).

    Did Jian get off on ordering Whitney around & getting LIGHTS to not wear her clothes? Power trip?

      Jian needs a make over from the Queer eye for the Straight guy lads. He looks like a thrift store schlub. And what’s with the ubiquitous stubble? Does he think that it makes him look like Miami Vice era Don Johnson?

        Maybe he’s couch surfing…or waking up in someone’s apartment who doesn’t have a razor.

          Don’t Jian and Kelly look like they match as a couple? You see non-famous couples all the time that look like those two together. This is the first time that Jian’s been with someone that’s closer to what he’d be dating or married to without the “fame”.
