Donny Osmond's On GaGa's Case Again

Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

Donny Calls GaGa Cheap

Donny Osmond has never supported GaGa's conduct. That's no secret, especially after the video for Telephone came out!

Now, he's being vocal about it again. He does, however, try and explain that he thinks she's super talented as an artist, writer, and marketer, attempting to soften the blow that the way she's grabbing attention is "cheap."

"First of all just let me make the statement: I think Lady Gaga is brilliant as a marketer, as a writer, as an artist — she is Madonna incarnated in my opinion. But I don't agree with a lot of the shock elements nowadays a lot of artists take to get their face on the cover, to get on the charts. In my opinion it is a cheap way to become popular. But I do think she's a very talented woman."

We suppose that you can both think something is brilliant but disagree with it at the same time, so we'll let that slide.

BUT, we do think that regardless of how someone becomes popular (as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else), it's all about what they do with that popularity after the fact. Do they just continue on the same path, or do they use it to grow and have a voice?

If you look at it that way, we'd say that "cheap" or not, that's a pretty insignificant piece of the puzzle when the talent is there to carry the artist on in the right directions. Agreed??

Do U think Donny is right?

Osmonds Settle Lawsuit With Vegas Producer

Filed under: Legal MattersMarie Osmond

marie-and-donny-osmond-settle-lawsuit.jpg

Donny and Marie Osmond have settled a lawsuit with the producer of their Las Vegas show after he accused them of breach of contract, unjust enrichment, fraud, and defamation.

Chip Lightman claims that the siblings backed out of a contract that had extended their variety act, The Donny & Marie Show, at the Flamingo Hotel until 2012. He went so far as calling Donny "devious, fraudulent, and greedy" and alleged that he "concocted a scheme" to avoid paying him and demanded that he accept a 50% pay cut if he wanted to keep his job.

Looks like Chip has had a change of heart because he's dismissed the complaint and has settled with The Osmonds for an undisclosed amount.

He's also released a statement, apologizing for his harsh comments. It reads, "I am pleased we were able to resolve this matter and am sorry that, in the heat of battle, comments may have been made that were hurtful to the Osmonds."

In turn, Donny also released a statement on behalf of him and Marie, saying, "My sister and I want to thank Chip Lightman for great contributions he made in launching our show at the Flamingo. We look forward to the opportunity to work with him again in the future."

Wow, that's really decent of Donny to want to continue working with a man who called him "devious" and "greedy!"

Vegas Producer Suing The Osmonds!

Filed under: Legal MattersSin CityMarie Osmond

las Vegas Producer Suing marie and donny osmond for trying to get him fired

The Donny & Marie Show has been a big hit on the Vegas strip and has brought in a lot of money for the Flamingo Hotel. However, one of the shows producers is suing the singing siblings, claiming that Donny Osmond conspired to cut him out of his contract and cut the show short!

Labeling Donny "devious, fraudulent and greedy", the producer, Chip Lightman, claims the Osmond brother "concocted a scheme" to back out of a deal to extend the show until 2012. In his suit, Chip alleges that Donny told the execs at the Flamingo he would pull out of the residency by next week if "the Flamingo did not terminate any and all agreements" with Lightman.

Donny seems like a pretty mild mannered man! You'd have to have really pissed him off if you got him to want you fired!

Regardless, the producer is suing both Donny and Marie Osmond for unspecified damages for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, fraud and contractual interference. It took no time at all for the Osmonds' lawyer to catch wind of this and immediately released a statement, saying:

"Of course, we are surprised and disappointed that Mr. Lightman took such precipitous action, especially in light of the substantial sums he has been paid, despite the facts that he neither created, financed or owns the show, nor does he engage the 48 talented and dedicated people who produce and perform the show each night."

In other words, you're not pulling your weight, bud! You should be fired!

Donny Osmond Found Inside a VaJayJay!

The last place you'd go to look for him!

BBC3 is running a new series called Bizarre ER, where CRAZY medic cases are reviewed and analyzed.

One woman went to be checked out because she was experiencing problems in her "private area." What the medics found was that the area wasn't so private - it was occupied by Donny Osmond! More accurately a rolled-up poster of Donny Osmond!

Ew!!! And also, why???

There's one place you really don't want a paper cut! Yuck!

Donny Osmond Slams GaGa's Telephone!

Filed under: Lady GaGa

donnygaga.jpg

Although he was once a strong opponent of censorship in the music industry, Donny Osmond was taken aback by the content of Lady Gaga's music video for Telephone.

He says:

"I'm all for freedom of speech and against any form of censorship, but all I know is that I'm a parent and I'm upset about this.

Unlike 20 years ago, in today's modern, viral world in which content becomes instantaneously available irrespective of age, I wonder whether the music industry might need to rethink its marketing policies with regard to making an explicit music video containing profanity, sexual exploitation, nudity, and graphic violence available to anyone with Internet access.

I wouldn't want my child to watch this video. Would you? What do you think? Should these two extremely gifted female role models for millions of young girls, maybe, have given a little more thought to the effect it might have on their core audience?"

Parental discretion is advised, Donny!

Do U think he's prude or just plain old?!
