Is there a don't-get-your-hopes-up emoji we can use here?

The new trailer for Sony's Emoji Movie just dropped, and pulls back the curtain on the magical universe taking place inside all of our smartphones.

This colorful app-Odyssey follows Gene (T.J. Miller), a complex emoji who wants to be of a singular emotion like the rest of his "Meh" family — so he ventures outside of Textopolis with his friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and Jailbreak emoji (Anna Faris).

If there's one thing children need, it's to have more compassion towards the emojis they use in text convos. We're just glad there's a film brave enough to tackle this conversation!

That said, we'll still totally watch this just to hear Sir Patrick Stewart playing the Poop Emoji. LOLz!

We still might not know where Dr. Luke stands with Sony Music, but it looks like the label isn't as hesitant to cut ties with other veteran producers.

Last week, the company announced that Epic Records chairman and CEO L.A. Reid was leaving Sony after six years.

Now, the reason behind his abrupt exit is coming to light: Reid has been accused of sexual harassment by a female assistant at Epic.

The New York Post reports that the accuser, represented by an attorney, submitted a letter to Sony detailing alleged inappropriate behavior by the industry veteran.

Multiple outlets have confirmed that the letter exists, and have discovered there have been "multiple" claims made against the record head who helped launch the careers of Meghan Trainor and Fifth Harmony.

But unlike its situation with Dr. Luke, the company isn't letting industry success excuse inappropriate behavior in the workplace. A source familiar with the X Factor host's ouster told The Post:

Dr. Luke's Rep Says The Music Producer & Sony 'Are Not Cutting Ties' — Well Then, What IS Going On??

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaSonyControversy

dr luke not ousted from sony

Dr. Luke (born Lukasz Gottwald) hasn't been fully ousted from Sony after all.

As we previously reported, the music company supposedly dropped the producer as CEO of Kemosabe Records — a record label Gottwald established with Sony back in 2011.

While many believed this demotion meant the industry vet would no longer have a working relationship with the media conglomerate, his rep has since defended that the 43-year-old is still professionally connected to Sony.

Dr. Luke's spokesperson told The Los Angeles Times:

"This is wrong, they are not cutting ties."

Well, well. We wonder what Kesha will have to say about this?? In case you forgot, the pop starlet has been trapped in a legal battle with the hitmaker since 2014 after she accused him of abuse.

We guess we'll just have to wait and see if Sony tries to clarify this incredibly confusing situation.

Dr. Luke Has Been Dropped By Sony!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersBusiness BlitzKeshaSony

Dr. Luke has been dropped by Sony.

Well, this is certainly interesting.

Dr. Luke has been dropped by Sony, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The producer is also no longer the CEO of Kemosabe Records, which he established with Sony in 2011. Furthermore, Sony has stated that Luke "no longer has authority to act on its behalf."

Even though this might seem like good news for Kesha, we're not sure that it actually nullifies her contract with the producer. It sounds like Dr. Luke is still the only one who can break that contract with her.

Moreover, in her court papers, the Tik Tok singer previously told the judge that Sony and Dr. Luke's relationship was about to come to an end, and that things would be worse for her once she no longer had the music giant behind her to act as a "go-between."

Complicating matters further is the fact that the music producer still has a pending defamation lawsuit against her, and his lawyers are in the process of gathering evidence that proves his career has suffered greatly due to Kesha's rape allegations. Being dropped by Sony might be another thing they can use against her.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more.
