*sigh*… I’m torn. I’m a little sad that I’m not going to be able to see Les Twins on the Cirque Du Soleil show but then again, I’m happy that the boys have taken a stand against being controlled… if that’s the case.
I’m not sure if any of you have heard, I’m sure you have if you’re addicted to Les Twins’ every move as I am, but nevertheless, the boys have either opted to discontinue their stint with Cirque Du Soleil’s Michael Jackson: The Immortal Tour or Cirque has let them go. The guys have been performing with the show for several months now, and had planned to go through the entire 2012 on the tour. I’m still searching for the reason why the guys left or Cirque Du Soleil dropped them, but there has been wide speculation that the “powers that be” at Cirque let the guys go because on Wednesday, December 7th, Laurent decided that he wanted to get a tattoo on his arm. Now we know this can’t be the reason because there are several guys on the tour heavily tatted or with tats. Even if that were the case, he could always cover it up with the sleeve just as Larry wears.
Larry took to his Facebook wall and posted this:
“fini le cirque du soleil FINI” (” Done! Le Cirque du Soleil. DONE.”)
When asked by another Cirque performer what will they do now? His response was:
“je pense aller refaire un tatoo ecrivant “fuck cirque du soleil” LOL” (“ I think I’m going to re-do a tattoo writing ” Fuck Cirque du Soleil” LOL), ” ou demander a lil wayne de faire un son decu” ( “ Or ask Lil Wayne to make a song. Sad/Deceived”)…
He continues to say:
” ils ont pas besoins d’artiste qui savent skil veulent ils on besoins de danseur sans vie avant et ke kan on leur dise un ordre il la ferme” (“ They don’t need artists who know what they’re doing. They need dancers without life and who when told to do something must shut up” )
Strong words from Larry huh? So, from this, I can surmise that the show may have been stifling their creative flow and their ability to do what they do best… and that’s staying human being and giving back to their fans through workshops and battles. I also assume that because Les Twins’ were conducting a workshop while they were in Las Vegas on the tour, that this was probably a conflict of interest or a conflict in general for the show. I absolutely admire the boys for keeping a level head and doing what they want. Of course I’m not advocating bucking the system, but in the entertainment business, if you don’t have a brain of your own, it will eat you alive.
