Report: Aguilera To Leave Label For Live Nation

x2 849x1024 Report: Aguilera To Leave Label For Live Nation

Christina Aguilera’s ‘Bionic’ may be gathering dust in bargain-bins across the country, but that has not deterred the singer from pressing on with her career.

According to new reports, the album’s appalling performance has persuaded Aguilera, 29, to part ways with long-time label RCA/Sony Music, in favour of a move to Live Nation.

Full story after the jump…

Aguilera’s Live Nation deal is believed to have been orchestrated by current manager Irving Azoff - who coincidentally is the Chairman of…Live Nation.

Reportedly worth millions, the partnership will see the concert promoter have a hand in all of the 29 year old’s career endeavours – music, touring, and endorsements.

If true, the deal will no doubt be a major coup for the Entertainment powerhouse, who over the last two years have struck similar deals with Madonna, U2, and Jay-Z.

———————————————————-

While change may just be what Aguilera’s career is in need of, it’ll be particularly interesting to see how this plays out. For, unlike the Madonna’s and Jay-Z’s of this world, Aguilera will not have been riding high in her career when making the move. Instead, she’ll clearly be cashing in on a connection (Azoff) to facilitate a deal, which otherwise would never have materialised.

After all, her sales have been in steady decline since 2002′s ‘Stripped’, and it’s unlikely RCA were fighting to keep her (particularly after the losses made on their grade-A promotion of ‘Bionic’). What’s more, this is ironically the same Live Nation who scrapped her tour due to poor ticket sales earlier this year.

In any case, the mother of one seems to have been extended a career life-line. Whether or not it’s too little, too late remains to be seen…

    this could be a good move to get things better maybe with a better management to push on future cd’s, performances and world tour!!we all know how talented she is, she doesn’t have to prove it anytime so I just think this Bionic era has been compromised by a bad management and a almost-zero promotion!!

    @LUVBEYONCE, LEARN THE INDUSTRY.. TV

    PERFORMANCES ARE ONE OF THE MOST OVERRATED

    FORMS OF PROMOTION KNOWN TO THE INDUSTRY.

    THEY LAST TEN MINUTES EACH, AND A HALF HOUR

    IN LENGTH AT MOST, AND THERE WERE ONLY 4 OF THEM.

    THERE WAS VERY LITTLE RADIO PLAY OF HER SINGLES, THERE

    WAS VERY LITTLE MTV VIDEO ROTATION, AND RADIOS ENDED UP

    BOYCOTTING HER SIMPLY DUE TO LADY CACKA IMPRESSIONS.

    A DEAL WITH LIVE NATION PREVENTS MUCH OF THAT FROM HAPPENING.

    THESE BUSINESS VENTURES ROOT FURTHER THAN WHAT SOME

    SEE..

    Bionic is really nothing like anything that’s out there, mainly because of what Aguilera brings to the table. Say what you will, but no one has the pipes like she does. That’s probably the reason for all of the haterade. It seems the media is loving the artists who they can make or break. Well, as long as there’s a God, no one can take away that earth shatterring voice, not even the bloggers, LOL

    when it comes to having one of the best voices out there, christina A wins hands down.
    It doesnt matter how much I cant stand her personality, but I cant deny the bish talents.
    now, the problem with christina last album was that the bish was trying to hard to compete with gaga.
    she even went on several shows, dissing gaga. of course she didnt realized that GAGA is dominating music right now, so that fugg up part of her album sells.
    and the NOT MY SELF TONIGHT, video was just a rip off of britney spears old dance moves, and madona old music videos.
    my point is how can u come and say Bionic is about being a mom and a new wife, and its different from all the other crap out there, and ur ass is on here making knock off videos?
    theres a way to still be a mom and keep it sexxy. like madonna, britney..they were s*** in there videos, but they didnt come off desperate.

    are we really going to use “the sales of albums have decline”, crap just to defend somebodys failure?
    album sales declining got s*** to do with christina flopping..
    look at madonna last album, britneys last album, hell gaga, sade, susan boyle, hell I can go on and on..album sales declining didnt stop their albums from goin platinum less than a month.

    i hate stans wo try to make excuse for their favorite artist. Im a fan of christina, and I know that her effing attittude, her dissing other artist, her arrogance f*** her in the ass with her poor album sales.

    I think it would be good for her to leave RCA. I believe that on Bionic, that she had no control over what she did on the album. I feel that its what RCA wanted. Lets keep in mind B2B came out when Clive Davis was CEO of RCA. While he was old school, he was still accomidating for Christina. Now Barry Weiss is CEO. He has a history of controlling the artist. He is behind signing manufactured artists such as NSYNC, Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears to Jive Records. Now @ RCA he has signed Ke$ha who is a greedy label exec’s wet dream. The RCA/Jive Label Group does not care about artistic integrity. Because of them, Christina ended up making a bad album , which got bad reviews and also attracted much hate towards Christina. Frankly I think she should be suing RCA for gross-neglegance. Leaving RCA is the right thing to do. Barry Weiss has proved again and again to be an ineffective business leader who is overly obsessed with cost-cutting and just signing artists who can sell. RCA is a disaster. Simple as that

    I am not a fan of Christina making a deal with LiveNation. Irving Azoff is also a greedy businessman. First of all he lied to congress about the ticketmaster/LiveNation merger. He told them the merger would lower ticket prices. It did the opposite. Azoff now has a twitter and is making stupid tweets trash talking AEG (LiveNations top competitor) and he also blamed the consumer for high ticket prices. He tweeted “You want ticket prices to go down? Then stop stealing music”. This shows he is a jerk who is out of touch with reality. The music industry itself is to blame for people stealing music. They failed to act back in the 90s. The ticketmaster/Livenation merger limited competition in the touring business. Azoff is part of the problem in the music business. Christina should ditch Azoff as her manager. He is not on her side.

    What Christina needs to do is move to Geffen Records. Why Geffen? Its ran by Ron Fair, the man who got her into this business and he is also someone who really understands her. Under Geffen she would be able to be true to herself as an artist. Ron Fair understands the importance of that. Christina needs a new manager. Her touring contract should not be with LiveNation, it should be with AEG live. They are a much better choice. With AEG she will have nothing to do with Azoff.

    I’m not trying to defend Christina, but pretty much all sales have been on a steady decline since 2002. It’s the way of the industry. Clearly Bionic is a flop, but a statement that someone’s sales have been on a steady decline since 02 means absolutely nothing.

    First @ the Beyonce Stans. I want you to tell me that Beyonce’s last albums have been as great as her first! She sold her sold to become a Pop Star. Beyonce use to write her own music and was more urban.. Now she changed and is running with the Make a Hit formula. That same formula equals ” The world forgets about the single as soon as it slides of the charts” While people still remember and play destiny child music and also still go crazy for her first album.

    Kudos for Tina trying something different… At lease she did and is not stuck like most artist.. Madonna is a legend ( Madonna Stan here) and she has had more than 3 albums flop harder than plastic.

    TIna will always be around and will always have the voice. Something you hater stans cant take away from her… FYi – Where is your music and your voice.

    YES QUEENTINA GET THAT PAPER, LET ME ADRESS ALL THE HATERS AND PARTICULARLY ONE DUMB s*** NAMED SAM.

    EVEN IF IRVING AZOFF IS HER MANAGER AS CHAIRMAN OF LIVE NATION HE ISN’T GONNA PLOW MILLIONS INTO A DEAL THAT IS GONNA MAKE A LOSS, HE COULD HAVE GOT HER A DEAL WITH ANY OTHER LABEL IF HE WANTED THIS IS XTINA YOU KNOW.

    YEAH HER SALES HAVE DECLINED BUT SO HAVE EVERYBODY ELSES DUE TO PIRACY ETC, OTHER HATERS HAD BETTER NOT CHAT BECAUSE LOOK AT AVRIL LAVIGNE SHE HAS HAD ALMOST THE SAME SLIDE WHILE STILL REMAINING ON TOP.

    LET GO: 16M – UNDER MY SKIN: 11M – THE BEST DAMN THING: 6M

    CHRISTINA AGUILERA: 16M – STRIPPED: 11M – BACK TO BASICS: 5.5M

    AS FOR THE TOUR IF YOU ACTUALLY BOTHERED TO RESEARCH INSTEAD OF BELIEVEING EVERYTHING GAGA’S NO1 b**** PEREZ HILTON SAYS YOU’D HAVE SEEN THAT ALL THE VIP TICKETS WERE SOLD OUT AND THE TOUR WAS AT NO3 ON THE SUMMER TOUR CHARTS WHEN SHE POSPONED IT.

    LIVE NATION ARE SNAPPING UP ALL THE BIG STARS LIKE MADONNA, U2, SHAKIRA ETC AND I DON’T REMEMBER ANYBODY HATING ON SHAKIRA WHEN “SHE WOLF” FLOPPED AND SHE WENT BACK TO THE DRAWAING BOARD.

    WE ALL KNOW THAT XTINA IS THE VOICE OF HER GENERATION, AMAZINGLY GIFTED ETC SO THERE IS NO WAY THAT SHE CAN BE KEPT DOWN, BIONIC HAD HARDLY ANY PROMO YEAH SHE DID IDOL ETC BEFORE IT DROPPED BUT WHAT SINCE?
    THERE WAS NO INTERNATIONAL PROMO AT ALL WHICH WOULD HAVE HELPED ESPECIALLY IN EUROPE AND ASIA ETC.

    THIS IS A NEW ERA AND I’M WAITING ON QUEEN CHRISSY TO COME BACK HARD AND WITH LIVE NATION INSTEAD OF THE COMPLACENT RCA BEHIND HER SHE WILL.

    Only this and Toya’s World mention this rumor… so I’m not buying it until I read it in more reliable sources. But if it is true, then all the best to her.

    Oh, and can we stop blaming her so-called “attitude” for Bionic flopping? There are some truly arrogant musicians out there whose albums have still done well because people ACTUALLY LIKE THE MUSIC. Kanye should’ve never had success after his first album if his attitude is anything to go by. I don’t know what Christina said about Gaga or anyone else that was derogatory enough to rightfully cause people to turn against her and not buy her album. Her attitude isn’t any different now than it always was, and none of her previous albums flopped it. People didn’t buy Bionic because its lead single was shitty as hell, the video was even worse, it was poor timing with Gaga being huge and all now, and the whole promotion for the album was just very, very poor. Not to mention that there are only a few decent songs out of the 18 tracks on the album.

    this site is just weird.. everyone knows Christina is a power house legend , ive never experienced anyone regarding her as a flop artist even with the new album not doing as well in its first few weeks of release shes chrisitna aguilera! I’m sorry but you guys are delusional in thinking that you can manipulate readers into thinking shes some any chick, let it by known that EVERY album Christina has released has won a Grammy either for the album it self or for a single on the album and this includes Back To Basics (which was a great album but even then Xtina was arguing with the label to get more of the RnB songs on the album released) The Back To Basics tour was an international sell out!

    The paint has not even dried on the Bionic cover and you guys are regarding it a flop after only one single has been released worldwide.

    Mark my words that when Grammy time comes Xtina will win best Pop Vocal for You Lost Me, you heard it here first!

    @BEYDABESS: Someone has an addiction to christina aguilera, since i always see you commenting on anything thats said about her.. you clearly like her but feel fretend by her, since you think its against Beyonce that you like Christina aguilera, but the truth is Beyonce dont give a crap who you like she probably dosnt give a crap about you. Christina is more likely to care about you she is one of the most caring people in entertainment with what she does for charity theres no way you could doubt that. you need to stop slagging of christina because your making your self look stupid you say christina is evil but the truth is you are. as for the discussion if this is true im glad shes leaving RCA i was always saying since the bionic era started it was over.. promotion was terrible, she hasnt been seen since the week of release. she done nothing lately to save it.. and promotion also started way to late for the album it should have been over a month in advance. i hope she changes her management team as well. There will defenately not be a Tour now. but thank god Bionic was awful bring back the real christina who is more into, blues, jazz, R&B, soul with a pop twist. thats the christina we all love. i hope she brings out a new album next year with strong promotion and not just online promotion and a few poor tv performances and then nothing. lets see what happens.

    @Go Hard: the label hasn’t been promoting the hell out of bionic. they did 1 week of promotion and that was during the release date. there was no promotion months before the album like she did with B2B and Stripped, there was no promotion after that 1 week of bad performance’s. She hasn’t even been on the Ellen show yet which is weird. if RCA were promoting it as much as you describe she would be out promoting it now and at least a few times since the release up to today. But there hasn’t been promotion came to late and to sudden and lasted to little, it was as if RCA and Christina forgot about Bionic being release and quicky got up, got onto a plane to New York and did a few shows and then returned home. it was a pathetic attempt of promotion. there hasnt even been any attempt to help Bionic just another bad Single “You Lost Me” which RCA picked and not Christina, She picked NMT which did alot better but was still crap and the video was awful. so overall Bad Promotion! lets hope she releases a new album next year to cover this mess, and has a blues, jazz, R&B, Soul with a pop twist, sound which we all love when she does that. Bionic is extremely awful and she probably knew that, hence little promotion.

    You know when an artist has flopped when they make such a major move. Christina just proved that she accepts that she has officially flopped! Poor girl.

    Maybe in the meantime she can make an attitude adjustment, come up with her own style (be more original instead of always following a trend), and not wait 4 years to release an album.

    As a xtina fan i was really disappointed she went the pop root. Xtina did her thing always she never followed trends when britney was singing bubble gum music she was singing soul.I love britney too but christina has always been the sanger. Then I saw the album cover of bionic and I just thought of the illumnati.That turned me off cause Im not a fan of devil worshippers that’s why i dont like gaga, rhianna or beyonce. I always loved xtina cause she never conformed to the pop formula and when she did she broke my heart. If she can bring back r&b again cause its starting to die I will back at her side but into then Im gonna call her flop.

    idk why artists would sign a “360 deal”. it benefits the label more than the artist.

    @s*** RELAX even if she did flop once with ‘Bionic’ (which we all know was horribly promoted) Xtina still has more platinum certifications under her belt in than Beyonce. (43 for Xtina & ONLY 29 for Beyawnce) EAT IT.

    xtina just needs to stfu. radio dj’s/companies have effectively blacklisted the girl…I haven’t heard her on the radio since “hurt”

    and get rid of “xtina”…shes outgrown her. Honestly, the “Bionic” Aguilera was the same thing as “Stripped” Aguilera, but “Stripped” Aguilera was younger and edgier. Now we have Beyonce, Riri, Gaga who have monopolized the edgy/sexual/shocking market. You need to stand out, aguilera, not blend in. (even if it wasn’t the intention, NMT seemed extremely desperate to simply be as ridiculously sexual as possible)

    I told you all, before thatgrapejuice.com, that RCA was letting Christina ago. I intern over at RCA’s urban division and rumors of Christina’s exit started when “Bionic” failed to live up to expectations. RCA spared no expense as far as the “Bionic” project was concerned. Christina recorded some of the tracks in far away places, places that required her to utilize the services only used by the labels top executives, like the company jet. Upon the dismal success of “Bionic” it was apparent that Christina was fast becoming a liability to the company.

    From what I have heard, she’s very difficult to work with. She hardly utilizes the services of her PR team which allows her to speak tot the media uncensored. She always has a flock of people to tend to her every need, even if she needs someone to wipe her ass, they’ll do it. And she might have caused her A&R to lose his job, he’s no longer with the label. I won’t give out his name out of respect for his privacy.

    I’m glad she’s gone, which means i’ll never have to work around her.

    @ Team Weezy:

    Her last two albums were four years in between… and both did very well. So time span had nothing to do with her album flopping. Look at Sade, her albums are ten years apart and they sell well.

    Oh Sam, Live Nation is not a music label, it’s an exclusive company for concerts. Epic fail on your part again. I thought this site is not about the false rumors you hear on the “grapevine”?

    @True Blue

    Yes, but these are different times. When she took her break before there weren’t many artists in between the previous album and the next one. Now you have new artists that can overshadow her, those with and without talent. (No need to name them because we all know who they are). You can’t take a break from 2006 to 2010 because of the plethora of other artists/fads that have taken over. Her fanbase has dwindled tremendously because of it.

    And artists like Sade CAN take long breaks like that. Even artists like Maxwell, included (7 year break). These artists have a CONSISTENT music style. There is no difference in what they put out when they last were on the scene to what they have released recently. Unlike Christina, who has constantly changed her musical style to fit what’s in currently (electro/euro-pop), and unfortunately it backfired, BADLY!

    So I’m not saying that the break was solely the reason of her flop, but you can’t say it had NOTHING to do with it because it did!

    For those of you who have not heard Christina’s album Bionic you should really conside taking a listen to it. I think she is and always will be a talented artist. In my opinion, most people will listen to whatever you tell them. Case in point from a certain s*** talking blogger named Perez who started the whole floptina campaign. He started saying she was copying Gaga, yes there were similar elements in her Not Myself Tonight video to Bad Romance, but everything has been done before. If you actually listened to the album and not some fat Roseanne reject hypocrite you would notice the sounds are completely different. Xtina worked with many different producers such as Peaches, MIA, Le Tigre, Ladytron, & Sia who all artist themselves who aren’t mainstream or get radio play. Each of them is a unique artist and contributed to Bionic in a sense they and Xtina were not looking to make the same sounding pop album as every other female out there. Christina has always been a little vulgar and this was the first time she used Auto Tone. In my opinion it has been one of the best albums this year. In a time of radio where people are listening to the same songs over again For Example: B.O.B., California Gurls, or Cooler Than me on every radio station 100 times a day its nice to see her happy about the album & the fans that still support her.

    A good example is Kelis who’s bee just released a new album Fleshyones. This album is the best one from her yet in my opinion. It has received great reviews, but has been released for a month now and has only managed to sell about 10,000 copies. That’s because most people don’t have a passion to go out and explore new artist and would rather listen to the same crap over and over again.
