Official: Cheryl & Ashley Cole Split

cheryl c2 Official: Cheryl & Ashley Cole Split

As our UK readers will know, there have been strong murmurings about Cheryl Cole calling time on her marriage to footballer Ashley Cole, after his infidelities became headline news two weeks ago. Today, the Pop star’s publicist released the following statement confirming that the power couple are indeed splitting:

“Cheryl Cole is separating from her husband Ashley Cole. Cheryl asks the media to respect her privacy during this difficult time. We have no further comment to make.”

Granted the fact the news comes as little surprise, the whole situation is rather unfortunate. Sigh…

Tidbit: Despite her questionable talent, the name ‘Cheryl Cole’ had a ring. It’ll be interesting to see if she’ll revert back to her maiden name ‘Tweedy’ for her music career. ‘Cheryl Tweedy’….hmmm.

Sugababes’s ‘Sweet 7′ Pushed Back Again!

sugababes sweet 7 Sugababess Sweet 7 Pushed Back Again!

Initially set for release in November last year, the Sugababes’ ironically titled new LP ‘Sweet 7′ has been pushed back yet again. Re-scheduled to hit stores on March 8th, the record has been delayed by a week and will now be released on March 15th. No reason has been given for the delay. {Source}

Really, though; what more can be said when it comes to this project? All I can say is that it’ll be really interesting to see how the album goes on to perform considering all the drama surrounding the group, as well as the money that has been pumped into this particular campaign by their label.

Report: Jennifer Lopez Dropped From Label

jennifer lopez 2 Report: Jennifer Lopez Dropped From Label

Following a string of commercial chart disasters, it is being reported today that Jennifer Lopez has been dropped by long-time label Epic Records. Ouch!

The singer/actress’ manager Benny Medina is said to have confirmed the news via email to Deadline.com, asserting that the split was an amicable one; one which occurred after the 40 year old mother of two had fulfilled her contractual obligations to the label upon the release of her last single ‘Louboutins’ – which tanked terribly on the charts upon its release early this year. Lopez’s team are said to have also shot down claims that her album ‘Love?’ was already completed, insisting that it has a been at an infant stage for a while yet (despite press listening sessions, and confirmed producer credits from the likes of Danja and D Mile).

However, such suggestion of Lopez’s departure being amicable is being rubbished by some close to the project. Instead, they reveal, it was Epic who sent Lopez packing after her series of chart flops. The label are said to ‘no longer know who Lopez’s audience are any more’. Worse still, Lopez’s forthcoming LP is said to have indeed been completed and ready for release in April.

Lopez is said to be in talks with LA Reid for a move to Def Jam.

———————————————–

This hardly comes as a surprise (and we actually exclusively revealed the fact not all was well with the project a while back). Despite several high-profile media appearances, Ms. Jenny From The Block just couldn’t strike it lucky with any of her new material. Which, when coming off the epic flop (pun intended) that was her 2007 effort ‘Brave’ as well as the current economy, never was going to bode well for her this go round.

In any case, it appears Ms. Marc-Anthony is pressing on and keeping it moving. The Def Jam deal doesn’t sound that far fetched either; some may recall the pics of Jennifer and her manager Benny Medina meeting with LA Reid and Rihanna earlier this month. I guess it wasn’t so much of a random gathering after all. (It would be rather wise for ol’ Jenny to look at Def Jam’s track record as of late with the likes of Janet Jackson and Amerie before signing on the dotted line).

Randomness: Should Jennifer sign to Def Jam, she’d be on the same label as old rival Mariah Carey (remember this? LMAO!). Then again, reliable word has it Mariah is on her way out from Def Jam, so maybe not?….

New Video: ‘We Are The World (Youtube Edition)’

The Youtube Community have come together for their own unique spin on Quincy Jones’ ‘We Are The World 25 For Haiti’. Featuring some of the popular site’s biggest artists and cover acts, this Web 2.0 take on the song, is better than the 2010 Biber, Kanye, J.Hudson et al remake (which in itself was a very commendable effort). Awesome stuff!

Kelly Rowland Enlists Polow Da Don For New Album

kelly polow Kelly Rowland Enlists Polow Da Don For New Album

Universal Motown‘s latest signee Kelly Rowland is currently wrapping up the recording process of her hotly anticipated 3rd solo album, and it appears the 29 year old has left the best till last. Following recent confirmation that she’s has been recording with hit-makers Ne-Yo and Danja, it has now been revealed that the Destiny’s Child star has also been working with Polow Da Don on the project in Los Angeles. {Source}

Rowland worked with Polow on her 2007 smash ‘Like This’; the then-little-known producer, real name Jamal Jones, went on to craft hits for the likes of Ciara (‘Promise’), Fergie (‘London Bridge’, ‘Glamorous’), Usher (‘Love In This Club’), Keri Hilson (‘Turnin’ Me On’), and Chris Brown (‘Forever’).

Kelly and her new team are NOT playing this go round. I love it! As we reported, the album’s first single is set to drop in April, with the album following in May/June.
