Because A Lot Of You Have Been Asking

| Filed under: Personally Perez

wenn1621052__opt.jpg

Yes, we are thrilled that Leona Lewis is doing so well in America.

She has a #1 song with Bleeding Love and we can say….."We called it way back in 2006!"

Leona's success is also very bittersweet for us because, as many of you have noticed, we haven't been writing about her. Nor will we mention her any time soon.

We also have several other artists that are "dead to us." They include: Tori Amos, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, The Gossip, Adele, Lil' Mama, Pink, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Whitney Houston and more. These are some of our favorite musicians. It really, truly pains us not to talk about them. But, it is something we HAVE to do!

Why????

Because Zomba, which is owned by Sony BMG, is suing us and we had a lightbulb go off recently: we can't support any artist signed to Sony BMG.

Why should we help the company suing us make money???? Especially when their lawsuit is personal!

Sony BMG, and their labels Zomba and Jive, are suing us for streaming several songs that turned out to be by Britney Spears.

When these songs first leaked, there was a lot of doubt as to whether they were Britney or a fake. Plus, we never made any music downloadable.

Every time we saw a take-down notice from the R.I.A.A., we complied immediately. By the way, no one at Sony BMG ever contacted us about Britney.

Also, every song we posted - not knowing if it was or wasn't an authentic Spears song - had already been all over the internet and fansites, yet PerezHilton.com is the only entity being sued by Sony BMG.

That's just not right! And, what's even worse are the outrageous demands Sony BMG are making in order to get them to settle this lawsuit and have this case dropped. We don't wanna get into specifics, as this hasn't all been resolved yet.

Sony BMG may win this battle, but at the end of the day we will be the ones laughing.

We KNOW that our support can help their artists, some of our favorites, immensely. We hope alienating us was worth it for Sony BMG!

Every other label out there wants to have us as a friend. It really makes us question the business practices of Sony BMG that they would rather have Perez as an enemy.

Their loss!

And, though we may never write about Leona again, we still love her. Always will. Same for Xtina. And J Lo. And Adele. And Ditto.

Our heart is sad.

    it was wrong for you to leak her songs months b4 the release so w/e. and if ur not talking about these artists anymore why do you talk about britney 24/7? so your theory is invalid lol. you just posted her video like a week ago.

    You should write a list of everything we should not buy/promote to try and make Sony BMG loose money for this.
    You help them and their artists and unless they drop the case it isn't acceptable!!!x

    FUCK all major record labels. Fuck them ALL.

    Everyone, please, never buy another major label album again from anyone, just burn it, download it,copy it, ANYTHING but just stop giving money to the greedy bastards who run the dying record industry.

    They sue their customers, and they expect us to support them???

    Leonna's cunt is toxic! she likes to put beer bottles up her twat while she picks her nose and then she takes her hot curling iron and puts it between her vagina and shoves it in hard! she likes to do this while watching brokeback mountain cuz she wants to fuck heath ledger still and has decided she may even dig him up so she can sit on his dead old moldy cock! that is some serious shit peeps! then she picks her nose and puts it in her asshole! icky!

  28. Meg says – reply to this


    28

    Good on ya Perez! Althought it might be tempting to still write about them you just have to stand up for yourself. I'm disappointed about Xtina as I love her but I'm very happy about Usher- who cares about him! I just have one request that you stop writing about Paris Hilton. I know that you like her but most people cannot stand to even look at her fug mug anymore let alone to hear about her idiotic behaviour. We always complain on the comments but it's in vain. So please…i BEG YOU.

    you're right, that is way too sad….too bad they're suing your website perez, cause they sure could have had you promoting for them for free!

    Stay strong perez… sony & universal tried to sue the company I worked for… ridiculous suits… they just pick on people they think won't have enough money to fight back

  35. rlm says – reply to this

    That's ridiculous! They'll regret it. I've learned about so many new artists through perezhilton.com (including The Gossip). Tough luck for Sony BMG.

    39

    You're truly an inspiration. You made your name by speaking your mind and sharing your opinions. This is a bump in the road. No one will ever be able to shut you up. Keep on truckin' and fuck Sony BMG. Best wishes Perez!!!!!

    YOU'RE BEING SUED!

    You should be - you put all this #$%$ about there and draw stupid gay drawings on it. Grow up! Maybe this will be a wake up call to you and take you down! And how old are you now? 30 years old acting like a little girl? Perez… you bore me and so do your lame stories! I hope you get sued so you're HOMELESS!

    You deserve it!

    That is sad Perez

  44. Danni says – reply to this


    44

    This is a heartfelt comment. As much as you have supported many music artists, you've also been quite horrible to many others and cruel to many public people. Regardless of whether or not your site was responsible for the leak - you have always disregarded copy write laws. Why should you be exempt from the law?

  45. Heather says – reply to this


    45

    That's 100% bullshit. Fuck Sony.
    I hope they realize that when an artist is featured on Perez's site that it's good for them, not bad.

  47. Mika says – reply to this


    47

    I agree, you will be the one laughing.
    The music industry is so far behind with its copyright law that it is trying to get as much money as possible from frivolous law suits. I guess perezhilton.com is the most easily available website with millions of witnesses.
    (Though you can definitely use us against them)

    52

    I would just like to say that this website featuring the Britney Spears tracks got me interested enough in her new album that I eventually bought the CD. I'm sure I'm not the only one that was exposed to her new tracks and liked them enough to buy her album. Soooo I think it's silly of Sony BMG to be suing perezhilton.com when in actuality, this heavily visited website was probably good publicity for her, at least as far as her music went.

  53. leesa says – reply to this

    Aww, Perez, sorry. This really sucks. I don't blame you one bit for not supporting Sonys artists. What a damn shame. We still luv ya big boy.

    68

    Aww Perez!!! I'm so sorry to hear that, but yeah they're really not smart to sue you!!!!! And I don't understand why people post hate comments on your articles, they just look dumb because they're clearly reading your site REGULARLY, and yet they claim to hate you.. Get over yourselves people, and seriously find something better to do with your time than spread hate.

    72

    only reason i brought britneys album twice, once from tesco and once from itunes was because i heard the songs on perezhilton.
    So thats £16 they gained, as well as the money they are suing from you, it's truly pathetic, and as people have stated - sony must not know how advertising works these days.
    Annoyed me this has, i liked hearing the american side of Leona Lewis. :( !
    Sony you sicken me like a bulimic at easter.

  77. Laura says – reply to this


    77

    I am sorry for the unfortunate lawsuit against you - I think it is totally wrong and Sony shouldn't win.

    However, by you boycotting their artists, how can your site be complete? What does J.Lo really have to do with this? When one of the biggest headlines of late last month was the birth of her twins and you didn't cover it (I'm not sure if you did actually, just making a point) don't you think you're only hurting yourself? And your fans? We want ALL the gossip and we want it from YOU! I feel like we're being punished too not just Sony. Just think about it.

    Perez, or whatever your real name is. U make money off of making people look stupid and making fun of them . And if one of them wrote a defensive blog like this you would make fun of them more. Emjoy your 15 minutes and adding to the paparazzi torture and etc… that has led to the downfall of many talented artists. U deserve exeactly what u reap. U are a hypocrite.

  80. Anon says – reply to this


    80

    Oh well Perez! Too bad for them and the artists under the label. To be honest this is the only website I visit to know about celebrities updates. And like me I am sure there are many others who do. If it weren't for you I would not even know who Leona Lewis is!
    so SCREW THEM! Its their loss!

  81. Eternal says – reply to this


    81

    Their fucking huge loss, Perez! You are helping out by promoting the music on your blog. Such a shame the industry is filled with a bunch of pathetic cunts.

    Perez, they obviously have no appreciation for the attention and exposure you bring their artists out of your own personal love for music.. I hope you shit on them in court.. KEEP ON KEEPIN ON! :)

    86

    I think that they will still all sell lots of albums without any assistance from you Perez.
    You do not drive record sales. These artists will still be popular without any help from you.
    Sony BMG will not suddenly go under because you won't talk about their artists.
    You must have a really high opinion of yourself to think that you have that much influence.

    And stop calling yourself "we" and "us". Although you are fat enough to be two people, you don't need to refer to yourself in the plural.

  87. Stephanie says – reply to this


    87

    That is awful because I never heard of Adele until I saw her on your site! And I haven't heard of her anywhere else since. I have two new favorites I never would have heard about if they weren't on here!

  88. Alex says – reply to this


    88

    What about Britney you DOUCHE BAG??? Why don't you not write about her either. She's a Sony artist and the reason you're getting your fat ass sued! OH, YAH, THAT'S RIGHT…She makes YOU too much money to not write about her. Your site hits would be half what they are.
    The fact of the matter is that when you leaked Gimme More, Radar, and Piece of Me… you knew those were Britney songs from the new album. Any idiot could have told you that was Britney. You even said in your posts, Britney singles…etc.
    Her entire album was leaked before it's release, thanks to your huge help and role in the leaks. Sony BMG is right to sue your fat ass.
    PEREZ, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. You will pay big for this one!

    The record companies as we know it have been missing the boat with music for a long time - they were stupid enough to fight the music download trend, and they still insist on charging a fortune for CD's and they refuse to work with the new web 2.0 players like Perez. say whaaa? When I was getting my MBA, we did case studies of businesses and industries who have failed - and I believe someday business students will be studying the rise and fall of the traditional music companies. Greedy losers.
