JoJo Files Lawsuit Against Record Company


I don't know about anyone else but I gave up on waiting for new music from JoJo. I wasn't surprised when I read news that she is taking legal action against her record label. The 18 year old singer filed a lawsuit in NYC claiming Da Family Entertainment wont let her out of her contract or release her third album All I Want Is Everything.

JoJo is asking for $500,00 in damaged and used her MySpace to get her true feelings out in her recent blog.“For the past year and a half I’ve been diligently cooperating with my record label(s) so I can have the opportunity to continue with my career and do what I love the most; create music and sing,” she wrote. “I’ve been a patient team player and have done everything that was asked and/or expected of me. As you may already know, my record company has been going through a major transition and unfortunately all of the artists on the label have been forced to sit on the sidelines and wait. I exhausted every option and exercised much patience before reaching my final decision to file a formal complaint with the court.”

Like some other music artists in the past, JoJo is claiming she has to fight for her freedom, “I’ve been blessed to receive great feedback from the record company in response to the music I’ve been delivering.” She goes on to say, “But unfortunately I have become a victim of industry politics that honestly have nothing to do with me personally or professionally. Because of this, I am willing to fight for what I love and ultimately for the chance to regain control of my livelihood and my life.”

You can read the whole blog entry HERE.

Selena Gomez just announced the name of her band, Selena Gomez And The Scene. The 17-year-old actress turn singer tweeted, “I cant wait for my record!!! Just so u know.. My band name is Selena Gomez And The Scene. The title of my record is called Kiss & Tell. I hope you all like it! I named my band The Scene because a lot of people are making fun of me calling me a ‘wanna be scene’ so I thought I would poke fun of that. Can’t beat ‘em join ‘em! Haha.”

Miley's Brother Bashes The Jonas Brothers


Here we go again. Let's publicly talk about someone we don't so then people who stir up more drama and make me a household name. Trace Cyrus, lead singer of Metro Station and Miley's brother, is bashing Jonas Trio's cookie cutter image.

In an interview with Men's Style he says, "I'm not trying to clean my image to make anyone happy. I could have gone the route of the Jonas Brothers. Those guys can't live their lives freely. They have to put out this image that's totally fake."

Trace just broke up with Demi Lovato (who is close friends with the boys) also said the brothers couldn't hold their own in a fight.
"Don't think any of them would be much trouble. I'd never lay a hand on Nick, I love that kid, but the other two better not get in my way."

Is this even necessary? Is he upset because the band of brothers are making lots of money from this clean image. If it's fake then so be it. I'm not a fan of them at all but they are doing their thing.

Later in the interview Trace says, "The only way to protect yourself is to kill people with kindness. People have this idea of what I'm like by looking at me, and I like shocking them by showing them I'm a good guy." Trace was talking about people who judge him based on his piercings and tattoos.

He's not so bright is he? He just bashed the Jonas boys for their image but then he doesnt want to be judged on his image?
Please comment on this. I would LOVE to know what you guys think.

Taylor Swift Films VMA Promo

Taylor Swift films scenes for the 2009 VMA's promotional video called "Tonight".

The 19-year-old country starlet joins Cobra Starship, Katy Perry, Ne-Yo and Russel Brand for a special version of the West Side Story song.

Taylor spoke to MTV about the video, “It’s gonna be me and a bunch of artists, and we’re shooting individual versions of the song. Mine is shot in a vintage old cab. My version of ‘Tonight’ was pretty theatrical, because I listened to the song and I heard the song and I’m just like, ‘There’s no way to do this and not play it up,’When we were in the studio recording, it I just kind of went all out — all show tunes. I am obsessed with Broadway. So I was pretty excited about getting to sing this song.”


The 2009 VMA's will premiere live from NYC on Sunday, September 13 at 9PMET/PT.

John Mayer Still Needs His Dad's Opinion


John Mayer brought his dad down to listen to his latest music project. The Mayer's were spotted in LA on Wednesay. I think that is so cute. John trusts his dad's honest opinion on his work. I'm still waiting for John's next CD and I'm getting really antsy. So John if you reading this..hurry the hell up with the CD already.

John is one of the artists asked to help remake the late Michael Jackson's song "Will You Be There". TMZ reports the proceeds will be split 50/50 between The Larry King Cardiac Foundation and a charity close to Michael Jackson. Other artists who are reportedly involved are Whitney Houston, Lionel Richie, Usher, Dionne Warwick, Wyclef Jean, Jermaine Jackson, Larry King’s wife Shawn and possibly Jennifer Hudson.

Is Mariah Not Ready To Release Her Next Album?


I don't know what's going on in the world of Mariah Carey but the longer you push this CD back your not going to feel ready. Mariah's album was pushed back once and now a second time. Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel is set for release September 29. Do you think Mariah is scared to release this album? I think she should get a better single and then release the album. "Obsessed" is too studio for me. For someone so talented she is trying to do too much. Let that voice win people over. I learned yesterday through my NBC's Today show email that she pulled out of her Today show concert series performance. According to Rap-Up, she is pulling out of other appearances that surround her previous release date.

New Music: Dead Man's Bones - My Body's A Zombie For You

I've mentioned before that actor Ryan Gosling (The Notebook) and friend Zach Shields formed a band called Dead Man's Bones. The duo will release their self-titled debut album on October 6.

I'm not really a fan of actors turn musicians but I think Ryan Gosling is hot and he acts really well. Hey the guy was on Mickey Mouse Club when he was a kid so you had to be a triple threat or a potential to be one.

Step Inside John Mayer's Crib



Ever wonder what John Mayer's Soho apartment looks like? Elle Decor featured the 15 time grammy nominee on their site. John's pad is really nice. The place was decorated by Armani/Casa and doesn't really rsemble what I pictured John's bachelor pad to look like. Check it out HERE

Which Producer Wants To Work With Taylor Swift?


Timbaland said in a recent interview he would like to work with Taylor Swift. One of the hottest producers who worked with Jay-Z, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Keri Hilson and Missy Elliot wants to work with another country artists. (He worked with Keith Urban before.)

Timbaland said to Radar Online, “I think the main person I want to get is Taylor Swift,” he told RadarOnline.com. “I love her voice. I just think me and her can do something amazing.”

The producer tried to contact the country starlet, “Her people said that she was busy. She wanted to do it, but you know, there’s all these people you gotta go through and her people said she was busy… but I’ll make it happen.”

So if these two do meet in the studio what can you expect? “It would have a country swing, but just a little bit of me. I know how to do that real good.” the Virginia native said.

I think that would be pretty interesting. Hopefully it works out and we can hear an awesome collaboration.

Mariah Performs On America's Got Talent

Mariah Carey performed her single “Obsessed” on Wednesday’s episode of “America’s Got Talent".

The performance was boring. I'm a fan of Mariah's mainly because she has amazing vocal talent. I don't know if it was my computer but she was drowned out by the music.

If You Didn't Get This Album...


Crosby Loggins debut album Time To Move is AMAZING. He writes, plays guitar and piano. John Mayer is featured on the album title track "Time To Move". Just a quick solo but its perfect! I think people look Crosby over because he's known as Kenny Loggin's kid, don't worry about that give him a chance. Check out his EPK below and preview his album on iTunes.


My favorite tracks are "Time To Move", "You Want To Be With Me", "Seriously", "Everything", and "Heaven Help Me".

If you don't preview the whole album at least check out those songs I listed.
