Scott recently revealed that his album ‘Utopia’ was meant to be a play. Speaking to GQ, he said: “I was trying to take Broadway — because the thing about Broadway theatres, they’re kind of small — I was trying to bring the idea of Broadway to bigger venues. Like, either, like, plays in stadiums or plays in arenas, but still make it feel like a Broadway bill.”

He also touched on his reaction to the Astroworld tragedy, in which eight people died in a fatal crowd crush at Scott’s festival in 2021: “I was just overly devastated”.

“I always think about it,” he added. “Those fans were like my family. You know, I love my fans to the utmost. It has its moments where it gets rough and…yeah. You just feel for those people. And their families.”

In other news, Scott was reportedly sued again over the Astroworld tragedy. Ceremony of Roses, a media and events company, is suing Scott for “substantial financial harm” due to his “negligence and willful misconduct in connection with the Festival.”

The exact amount sought as compensation was not revealed – however, the documents claim that Ceremony of Roses invested a minimum of $700,000 (£570,000) in out-of-pocket expenses to set up and operate the amusements.
