Right on, Simon!

During a recent interview, Simon Cowell spoke up about Glee, and how the show has impacted the record industry:

"If somebody said to me five years ago that one of the biggest pop stars or groups in the world was going to be a glee club, I never would've believed it. What they've done with Glee, I believe, is that they've broken away all boundaries; all shapes, all sizes all mixed together, but it just works."

"It kind of goes against record company thinking… because they like to think in terms of everything's gotta be perfection. But Glee changed the rules and that's part of the reason we are making this show. To prove that actually you shouldn't have rules for talent…It should be, if you're talented or if you're different, you should have a chance to succeed along with anyone else."

We like what you're saying here, Simon! Makes a lot of sense, and we're sure that lots of people would agree with you.

What do U think about Simon's Glee comments?

This is HUGE!

Due to financial difficulties, the EMI record label may be sold to Warner Music Group within the year.

"I would auction off the music publishing business and dump the recorded music business to Warner," said analyst Michael Nathanson when asked about possible scenarios for the company.

According to another analyst at Standard & Poor's Equity Research, Tuba Amobi, a deal is a possibility because the parent company of EMI, Terra Firma, is "much more dire straights" than it has been in the past.

We had no idea it was this bad!
