Another Victim

| Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic Minute

Annie Lennox has been dropped by her record label.

"They totally ignored me," says a jilted Lennox. "It was bizarre. It was a kick in the teeth. They didn't return my phone calls or emails for three weeks. I'm trying to find out what's behind it. Probably a good thing I'm no longer with them - mild understatement."

Bummer.

    I was a fan, but she lost her voice. Her last CD was so bad, lyrics and voice, and her public performances underscored that she lost her voice. She was phoning it in and did not bother to train her voice. I still play the previous CD's.

    Pretty pathetic when a successful, critically acclaimed and winner of both numerous Grammy awards and an Oscar gets dumped by morons looking for the next teenage sensation. Don't worry, Annie… there are other lables that will happily sign you on and fans like me who will continue to support you.

    I' not a fan of her, If fact, I bought her latest album and I really don't know why. It's the only album of hers I ever bought, and I had never listen to it. It surprised me. It has beautiful songs.

    I find "DARK ROAD" specially beautiful, and I recommend it.

    I have never heard of her before. But, maybe she will have time to help me at www.boys4hire.info - this little boy needs a mommy and daddy and I am trying to help him. Thank you. David (6 1/2 years old) - and Mommy!

    Annie Lennox has such amazing talent and grace. She's a legend, IMO, and this is only further proof that the time of good music has certainly passed. The record companies are only interested in girls under the age of 17 who can pass for porn stars and couldn't outsing Bobcat Goldthwait. Fuck the industry.

    THIS IS NOT TRUE!
    Annie and Sony BMG posted the following:
    Statement from Annie
    Just for your attention…An article has been published in today's Daily Mirror stating that I'd been "dumped" by Sony BMG. As you know, this is completely untrue. My recording contract with the company has simply expired.
    They obviously have been reading my blogs, but have completely misinterpreted and misreported what I've written.
    …I had a meeting with Ged Docherty, the head of UK Sony BMG this afternoon, who was absolutely mortified by the piece. The paper will be publishing a retraction tomorrow.

    66

    from "snopes.com". Barack Hussein Obama was born to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black MUSLIM from Nyangoma-Kogel , Kenya. After his parents divorced, his mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from Indonesia! When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia . Obama attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta. Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it appear that Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father. In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct influence over his son's education. Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta . Wahabism is the RADICAL teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world. Since it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking major public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background. ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into office he DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Koran. The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level - through the President of the United States, one of their own!

    Hard to believe. Eurythmics was my first concert at 14. Saw her live w/ Sting a few years ago. She sounded absolutely phenomenal. Sony should be ashamed of treating her that way. Why can't people be real instead of hiding? At least treat her like the talent she is, even if you aren't going to sign her again.

  95. Adam says – reply to this


    95

    I'm not surprised. This isn't a knock on her as a talent, but it costs a lot of money to record and promote an album. She simply does not move enough copies to keep it profitable for her label. In the past, this wouldn't matter: 9 out 10 albums lose money, but that 1 album that makes a profit makes enough to cover the losses incurred by the label on it'sother 9 releases.
    Because record sales are way down from where they used to be, this isn't a viable model anymore. So the label drops all the artists it doesn't believe will make a profit. Sucks, but it's good business sense.
    However, this means the artists can go to a smaller label, with a smaller budget that is more suited to the revenue they can expect to generate, or choose a non-traditional recording and distribution setup for their output.

    Rosie kept going on and on about her, and how wonderful she was, so IM sure some of the suits started to get nervous
    Whenever Rosie says someone is good, it generally means there finished
    Good examples Keith Olberman, Boy George,& Maxwell Orange
