Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
Make room for him at X Factor because his schedule is officially clear!
This morning, L.A. Reid, the music mogul behind great acts like Kanye West and Justin Bieber, officially resigned this morning as Chairman of the Island Def Jam Music Group. He made the announcement via a letter he sent out to his staff, which we have for you here.
In the letter, he wrote:
To my Island Def Jam family:
After much consideration, I have decided to leave my position as Chairman of the Island Def Jam Music Group.
I have always thrived on growth and the next great challenge, and I look forward with much enthusiasm to what the future holds.
I am extremely proud of our beautiful roster and all we have accomplished in my seven years with IDJ. We continue to have incredible success together with today’s most phenomenal superstars – Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Bon Jovi, Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, Rick Ross, The Killers, The Dream, Chrisette Michele, Jeezy and Ludacris to name a few.
I want to thank all of you for your amazing contributions.
With Warm Regards –
End of an era…but the start of something new!
Nothing standing in his way now of being the X Factor judges panel. That's one!
