The visa troubles that have dogged artists like Lily Allen and M.I.A. over the past year have just claimed the cutest victims of all: Girl-group revivalists The Pipettes have been forced to cancel 18 of their North American tour dates, including stops in Chicago, Toronto, New York, Boston, D.C., and Austin. (Good news for our resident Rosay Pipette stalker Marc Hawthorne: San Francisco is still on for now.) Seriously, when is this visa madness going to stop? And why is it always the ladies getting the boot when I can't turn around without having to see Paolo Nutini?
