Lady GaGa Addresses ‘ARTPOP’ ‘$25 Million Budget’ Reports

r.kelly lady gaga that grape juice Lady GaGa Addresses ARTPOP $25 Million Budget Reports

 

Before its headline-dominating release back in November, Lady GaGa‘s ‘ARTPOP’ LP found itself met with reports claiming it had been armed with a $25 million budget…employed to fund the fun filled release.

Alas, after struggling to rock the charts quite as hard as 2011′s ‘Born This Way‘ did before it, this report was picked by many major news outlets, who now claimed the performer’s label, Interscope, had lost that amount due to the album’s ‘underperformance.’

Now, after keeping mum on the matter for months, the entertainer took to her official fan community site ‘Little Monsters.Com‘, to address the allegedly false report.

Hot Topic: Is The World Ready For A New Keri Hilson Album?

keri hilson that grape juice she is diva tgj tv Hot Topic: Is The World Ready For A New Keri Hilson Album?

 

Four years.

Despite maintaining a very present ‘presence’ at the forefront of R&B’s scene, four years have passed since the release of Keri Hilson‘s last studio album, ‘No Boys Allowed.’

Back then, the double Platinum status of its lead single ‘Pretty Girl Rock‘ and the 102,000 units sold in its first week paled in comparison to digits moved by the likes of Keyshia Cole, Beyonce and Alicia Keys months/years earlier.

However, with the gap between today’s R&B haves and have-nots wider than ever before, ‘Boys’ sales now place Hilson in a small group of ‘Urban’ belles whose labels can depend on them to pull in a profit. So, baring recent releases by Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Brandy in mind, we ask…

Is the world ready for a new Keri album?

…better yet…

Are you looking forward to a new Keri  album?

Rico Love Talks Music Industry Millions / Weighs In On Racism, Jay Z & African-American Hypocrisy: ‘You Can’t Be Pro-Black When It’s Convenient.’

rico love that grape juice she is diva Rico Love Talks Music Industry Millions / Weighs In On Racism, Jay Z & African American Hypocrisy: You Cant Be Pro Black When Its Convenient.

 

Responsible for many a cool sound spawned by Beyonce, Brandy, Usher and Kelly Rowland, Rico Love’s habit of building R&B music that transcends genre lines has brought him more success than most maybe aware of.

Now, in an interview with ‘The Feature Presentation‘, the ‘Sweet Dreams‘ producer has detailed his journey to the top, going a long way help aspiring creatives understand the lucrative business that is music publishing, soundtrack building and his enviable arrangement with Jimmy Iovine‘s ‘Interscope.’

The above, being one of the reasons we’ve billed this interview a ‘must see.’

For, his time with the outlet also saw him dish on the criticism Jay Z faces for continuing his business dealings with  Barney’s, a company now under fire following claims they falsely accused two African-American shoppers of committing credit card fraud after they made large but legal in-store purchases.

Love’s thoughts on the matter? An interesting explanation as to why boycotting one company on the grounds of racism does little to combat the problem, and why the African-American community should turn its attention to the gun-selling pawnshops, alcohol pouring liquor stores and lack of inner-city education resources that stifles the progression of its youth.
