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.

    Well, that really blows - Annie has one of the world's most beautiful voices. I'm sure some record label will be smart enough to snap her up.

    According to her website, she wasn't dropped from her label. In fact, the label wants her to resign with them again.

    Annie Lennox is an incredible performer and I have been a fan since the '80s. She hasn't lost her voice and she did not "phone" her vocal parts in on her new album. Whoever said that is full of shit.

    106

    The story is completely untrue. see her website today. Her contract expired. Sony says they want her if she wants to stay. The British press has got this all wrong, as do you Perez. And, BTW, she is one of the finest singers and performers there is.

    More evidence that the more political a star/musician/celebrity gets, the less economic viable the star gets. Leftist politics = box office poison.

    Seriously, she is shocked that she was dropped by Sony? Have you seen her latest album sales? Sony most likely lost money on the promotion and the advances for production.

    Unbelievable that a True Artist is tossed, so that radio-friendly hip/hop two-hit wonders are signed. It's not all about age! It's about respecting a true artist who has a giant fan base. Damn - I should be a top A&R guy! This wouldn't be happening.

    I adore Annie Lennox. Her Medusa & Diva albums are classics. She is beyond brilliant! This is ridiculous. Eurythimics is one of my fav bands ever. Her voice always gives me the chills live or on record- which is a rarity these days. I remember seeing her perform w/ the Eurythmics reunion on
    the American Music Awards years ago(can't find it on Youtube)- her vocal phrasing & improvisation were genius & brought tears to my eyes. You can't keep great talent down! She is a phoenix , she will rise again!

    My God! What is the recording industry coming too? Britney Spears has a record deal..Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton can all get signed…but Annie Lennox gets dropped?
    Annie Lennox has a fantastic voice. She is incredibly talented. For everyone who doesn't know her…Listen to the soundtrack from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Annie wrote and sang the theme..in Elvish no less!

    Seriously, people. She is one of the best live performances I've seen. She didn't lose her voice, either - I just saw her in concert in 2006 with Sting. She has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard. It sounds much better than the radio.

    WTH…she just won an Oscar in 2004 for her best song "Into the West" in LOTR. An OSCAR. It's like dropping Sting, or The Boss, or Stevie Wonder from the label - it just doesn't happen.

    WHAT?!
    Annie Lennox is a living legend!!
    How could her label drop her and treat her like that??!!
    That's seriously fucked up.
    I'm not even a big fan of hers (I like a few of her songs), but I greatly appreciate her obvious talent.
    I hope she moves on and continues to make great music for years to come.

    134

    To those of you who say she has lost her voice, and that her last album was crap….you obviously wouldn't know talent if it kicked you in the groin. Her current album is teriffic. I saw her in Chicago a couple of months ago, and the show was OUTSTANDING! Her voice is a gift. This is another example of why the record industry is in the shape it's in. They would rather promote slickly packaged no-talents….what a shame.

    Annie Lennox has more talent in her left earlobe than Britney Spears, Alli Sims, Lindsay Lohan, Adnan Ghalib, Gay-Fed and the whole rest of that passel of ass-clowns combined. And right now, as we speak, 250 pappa-ratsy are running willy-nilly all over Los Angeles trying to be there when Zitney goes into a changeroom or gas station washroom to have hot greasy farting monkey sex (ain't love grand?) with some dude with a shaved-pussy beard that she's known for exactly 3 minutes, hoping they'll get that photo of her bug-infested clam when she staggers out butt-nekkid in yet another pathetically contrived installment.
    But talent can't get a record deal.

  49. Geoff says – reply to this


    149

    Who is she? She's one of those rare people in the music industry who actually has talent. And her voice is as rich and vibrant as ever, as evidenced here first-hand at her recent New York concert, which was beyond thrilling to see… and thrilling to see someone who actually still knows how to write a song! I'm surprised SHE hadn't dropped her label, what with their consistently-lousy press campaigns! Her latest CD is quite remarkable in scope, musicality and melody and to not get a proper press push- well, I think she should consider herself lucky to be "dropped"!

    It bears pointing out that most of the people paying attention to what PerezHilton.com says are a bunch of pre-pubescent twats with cheese for brains. None of you dissing her are worthy of wiping the sweat off her brow. Get an f'n clue, would you please?? Otherwise, feel free to disclose your individual locations, and I will personally show up at your front door to kick your asses back to Hell where they belong. The story is not true–and Annie Lennox is certainly beyond reproach from the likes of you all!!! Wake up, you fucking losers, before it's too late

    She had her time in the sun. Still, it's all about SALES. She shouldn't worry, just sign up with Hear Records, like Paul McCartney & Joni Mitchell both did. She'll be fine, still it sux.

  52. SB says – reply to this


    152

    This couldn't possibly have been true. I mean, Annie Lennox's last album was released around Thanksgiving and debuted in the Top 10. In fact, there's a single on the album that's charting as we speak! "Sing" is charting on both the adult contemporary chart and the dance chart. I highly doubt the label would drop someone whose album they're still promoting.

    No doubt Annie has the chops, but it's "Show BUSINESS"….You get to keep your record contract if you make a profit for the large corporations running things….it's always been that way….but there's much less patience between albums to perform than ever.

    I saw her live few months ago and she was BRILLIANT!! The good singers/songwriters are not getting the recognition they deserve. Britney and Jessica are getting more attention than the talented singers. It is a sad thing to see that being talented doesn't really take you far. Cyndi Lauper is another extremely talented singer that never got the recognition she really deserves! SAD SAD SAD

    Wow, for a 53 year old she's looking fiiiine. I'm practically gay, but I'd lick her sweaty menstrual juice after a long concert and love it. You straight people wish your husband/wife will look this good by then. Look at that tight bod, and of course that's an unflattering picture. Plus I bet she does kegels. God damn.

    As she said, it's probably for the best. She can make records on her our dime and pocket all the income from sales herself. No need to help support the drug habits of dozens of mid-level executives at her old label.

    She has the notoriety to continue making a good living doing her own thing and being her own boss.

    I saw her in concert with Sting last year and she was fabulous! Sting was obviously going through the motions and he was a disappointment, but when she was on she was fantastic. The crowd really came alive when she was on. She is fabulous. She suffers from agoraphobia (extreme fear/panic of leaving your home) and that has somewhat affected her career. She isn't that old, early 50's and looks great. She has a gorgeous voice, she will do just fine, she has plenty of money and I am sure she will quickly find another label to record with.

Stop spending so much time on you self promotion and do a little research and present the facts.

    I find it hard to believe, but with the manufactured crap they put out now days, who knows? If there was decent arts education in our schools, people would have a clue and people like Britney or Paula Abdul or Bon Jovi or Jessica Simpson or those stupid boy bands would be laughed out of the business like they should be and people who can actually sing, play instruments or actually write their own music would be appreciated like they should be.
    It's disgusting and I'm not sure what's worse, the stupid people that call someone who lip sinc's to a electronically altered voice while doing a cheerleading routine an "artist?!" Or the shameless uneducated parents that let their kids hear that shit? It's pathetic.

    I saw her open for Sting at the Saddledome in Calgary a year or two ago, and she absolutely mopped the floor with him; and Sting was GOOD. She ought to start her own label, because she's forgotten more than her current (ex) label knows. Pffft. If not, then old band mate Dave Stewart will help set her up with something even better.

    Annie Lennox was talking about the SOUTH AFRICAN branch of the record company, when she was in South Africa. She was doing grat things for them and it hurt her feelings (and her project). Her record company'label adores her and even though her contract is over, they have asked her back excitedly. She is thinking about what to do at this time, she is not entirely sure she wants to be bound to any particular recod label at this time.
