Joel Madden Is NOT Happy About The Cover Art For His Band's Greatest Hits Album!

joel-madden-tweets-about-good-charlottes-greatest-hits-album-cover

We know that you guys had no involvement with the compilation, but you're just noticing this now? It's been out since November!

Joel Madden must have just finally caught the album cover for his band, Good Charlotte's Greatest Hits album - which was released through their former label Sony Music without their input - because he just took to Twitter to share his distaste for it with the world!

He wrote:

Our "greatest hits record" has the worst artwork ever. What a shame. Sony could have a least told us! We would have helped. I think?

Wow! That does really suck.

But we can't imagine that there's too much that can be done - it's pretty out of your control at this point!

For the record, we think that although it's definitely not GREAT, it's not the worst either!

Sorry, bb!

X Factor's Rebecca Ferguson Lands Record Deal!

x-factor-rebecca-ferguson-lands-record-deal

Excellent! Such a well-deserved accomplishment!

X Factor contestant Rebecca Ferguson has reportedly been signed to Epic Records and is set to begin work on her debut album, over a month after becoming the runner-up in the reality competition!

Sources close to the singer have revealed that the album will feature a variety of tracks in the same vein as Duffy or Corinne Bailey Rae, which we think will suit her PERFECTLY!

Congratulations, bb!

We can't wait to hear what you produce!

You're going to absolutely KILL it!

Lily Allen's Launching Her Own Record Label

Filed under: Lily AllenMusic MinuteCults

lily-allen-record-label.jpg

And you'll never guess who she signed as her first act!

We seem to remember there being a time when Lily Allen pledged to retire from the music business all together. She's been out of the spotlight for awhile in the aftermath of her personal tragedy, but now we hear she's found joy in a different aspect of the biz and is ready to get back into it. According to reports, the singer is well on her way in launching her own record label.

Lily reportedly is getting backed through Sony Music and is calling her label In The Name Of. Bosses at the firm have allegedly promised Lily a $225,000 salary and money to set up her own office and staff. Thankfully, it sounds like their money is being well spent as she has already signed her first act: Cults!

Well! Someone must be reading our site! We wrote about them nine months ago! They're amazing!

Smart choice, Lily!

The first collection of tees include images and artwork pulled from Sony's 120 year archive, many of which have never been seen.

Sounds like a music fan's dream wardrobe!

Prices start at $49 and go up to $84.

Randy Jackson Continues To Question The Authenticity Of New Michael Jackson Album!

randy-jackson-continues-to-question-the-authenticity-of-new-michael-jackson-album

We wonder if we'll ever know the truth about this.

Michael Jackson's brother, Randy, was answering questions for fans via his Twitter page, and when the topic of the authenticity of his brother's new album, Michael, came up, he re-affirmed what many of the Jackson family are alleging: that many of the vocals are done by an impersonator!

He wrote:

Me and my nephew were the first to say that it wasn't his voice on some of the tracks

The family and the executers of the Estate, Branca and Mclain are not on the same page

We don't see eye to eye

John McClain insisted that no family members were allowed at his studio where the project was being completed

I became suspicious about the album, when I heard when armed guards were involved since my brothers passing, May he rest in peace.

My first thought was, what are they trying to hide

Teddy Riley was brought in just to mix and insisted on switching studios

At which he called me to come down and hear my brothers music, may he rest in peace.

I heard the music and I immediately said it wasn't his voice

Now McClain points the finger at Sony, when he got the tracks before it even went to Sony

But I think they all know all now it is not him

In fact, when I heard about the Sony deal, it made me sick

Sony has 250 mil reasons to convince the public that it is his voice, if you know what I mean.

Like AEG, they were cutting deals with the Estate before I could get my brother in the ground. May he rest in peace.

Okay, after this Sony deal was inked, McClain went to work putting together the first album

Calling all over the place looking for music with my brothers voice on it

From what I heard, he didn't care about the quality or how complete the vocals were.

Why would Sony sign a 10 album deal over a period of seven years and

McClain couldn't find enough product for one album

If they don't even have enough product for one album how are they going to make 10 albums?

And as to the vocal authenticators, they work for pay. And I wasn't there when they did their analysis

Some of the songs are him, and some aren't. I would be my life on that.

Since my brothers passing, over one billion dollars has been profited.

I want his legacy to be respected as if he were here.

My brother was a perfectionists, and they are paying no regards to quality

Wow! Those are some serious allegations!

And we hate to think that people would be so disrespectful of Michael's memory that they would knowingly release music under his name that he did not perform, but Randy argues a pretty strong case for himself!

So sad and unfortunate.

What do U think?? Are the MJ vocals legit??
