Will Barbra Renew Her Record Deal With Columbia? Or Will She Walk???

barbra streisand in record deal talks with columbia

Should she stay or should she go?

Barbra Streisand's got a new album coming out this August…and it could be her last one with Columbia, if the label isn't able to work out a deal with her.

Right now, it's looking like it will cost Columbia around $20 million to sign Barbra on for a deal, which could "include one new album and three reissues." Seems kinda pricey…but then again she is kind of a legend.

Here's what Barbra's manager Marty Ehrlichman had to say about his client's future at Columbia:

"I’m not peddling Barbra. I will stay with Columbia unless I can’t make a deal, then I’ll go elsewhere."

"It’s a process. [New Sony Music Entertainment CEO] Doug Morris just came in, and we’ve just started negotiating. We’ve been with Columbia since the very beginning. I have no reason to believe we won’t continue to stay there."

Some sources have said that the record deal renewal talks have been "heated" and words like "diva" have been used in reference to the negotiations.

Yeah, it's easy to call Barbra a diva and say that she's asking too much, but Babs is a living legend and she's been pretty consistent with her ability to deliver over the years! We'd say it would be in Columbia's best interest to work something out.

What do U think? Is Barbra Streisand asking too much with her record deal renewal? Or does she deserve it all?

Way too young.

36-year-old Australian Idol judge Jay Dee Springbett, who also served as an A&R exec at Sony Music for over six years, was found dead in his Sydney apartment last night.

According to police, Springbett's death is "not suspicious."

Here's what Sony Music Entertainment Australia and New Zealand CEO Denis Handlin had to say about Jay:

"Jay Dee was so very enthusiastic and passionate about his family, his music projects and his plans for the future. [He] was a great friend and larger-than-life charismatic character who will be missed enormously."

We're so sad to hear about this, but at least we're glad to hear that police don't seem to suspect foul play.

Our thoughts go out to Jay Dee's family, friends, and peers during this incredibly difficult time. Such a tragedy.
