will-i-am-offers-cher-lloyd-recording-contract

Cher Lloyd may have lost X Factor, but we imagine right now she's saying to herself, "So what?!"

will.i.am has reportedly made good on his previous promise, and has offered the reality contestant a recording contract!

Sources report that The Black Eyed Peas singer, who was already on hand during the Finals to accompany her in a duet, promised to make Lloyd a huge star only moments after she was eliminated backstage!

The insider explains:

"He vowed to help her grow and develop as a recording artist. Will also spoke to her family, promising them he'll try to make her a star."

Amazing!

We had no doubt in our mind that Cher would make a seamless transition into superstardom, but we're just thrilled that it's happening so fast!

Congratulations, bb! We wish you nothing but all the success in the world!

Applegirl002 Signs A Recording Contract!!

Filed under: Music MinuteBeyonceTech TalkYouTubeLady GaGa

Good for her! She deserves this!

Kim Yeo-hee AKA applegirl002, the South Korean sensation whose blown up YouTube with videos of her performing Beyowulf and GaGa tracks with musical accompaniment from music applications on her iPhone, has signed a record deal!

She says:

“I have many songwriter friends, who introduced me to various music applications. Since I bought my iPhone, I kept playing with it and experimenting with different apps and got totally hooked. I wanted to show people I can do playing and singing at the same time. These days you should sell yourself. I wanted people to watch and evaluate my performances. It would be great if Apple contacts me, but I know it can only happen in my wildest dream. But I definitely want to work outside Korea if opportunity comes.”

Check out her awesome rendition of Poker Face above!

We think she's AMAZEBALLS! We can't wait to hear what she comes up with next!

DMX Wants His $$$!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersDMX

Even while incarcerated, DMX knows what is important:

Money!!!

From behind bars, the rapper is launching a major lawsuit against Rich Kid Entertainment. He claims that the company took 100% of his revenue when he signed with them 10 years ago. He alleges that they pocketed his payments instead of just taking the 10% they were owed.

Lawyers representing DMX filed the papers in Manhattan this morning, saying:

"DMX has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and has had No. 1 singles and albums on the Billboard charts, which in turn have generated a great amount of revenue for Defendants, but has left (DMX) with nothing."

And how did this all go unnoticed?

When you spend eight years in and out of prison, you see how much time you have for financial planning!

Michael Jackson's Estate Signs HUGE Recording Contract!

mj-wenn__opt11__opt11__opt12.jpg

He's still breaking records!

Pop legend Michael Jackson's estate has reportedly signed one of the largest recording contracts in HISTORY, which means that his music isn't going anywhere for quite a long time!

The contract will give Jackson's former label, Sony, the rights to sell and distribute the pop star's unheard recordings and back catalogs through 2017!!

Jackson's estate will apparently be rewarded up to $250 million for the use of his back catalog!

Holy shiz!! That is UNHEARD OF!!

Rob Stringer, chairman of Columbia/Epic Label Group, a division of Sony, says:

“It’s not just a record deal. We’re not just basing this on how many CDs we sell or how many downloads. There are also audio rights for theater, movies, computer games. I don’t know how an audio soundtrack will be used in 2017, but you’ve got to bet on Michael Jackson in any new platform.”

Wow. We hope people are still interested in Jackson in seven years, or this is going to be a MASSIVE misstep for Sony!

What do U think??? Are U interested in unreleased Michael Jackson recordings?
