^You seem to suggest RCA gave her a choice. Christina was a liability for them, just like Leona Lewis was, or any other artist that's ever been dropped (I mean it happened to Mariah Carey after one freakin album).

I am and I don't know they did. Neither do you. If they weren't interested in a new deal then its a closed case, she had to find a new home. I think she could have wrangled a new deal and if she could and instead went to Universal thinking she's destined for a massive career resurrection and will be their queen bee, she's in for a big shock.

It should also be pointed out that Sony wanted Leona Lewis to stay (confirmed by Simon Cowell). Leona parted ways from them for lack of career ideas.

^I feel like every time a flop artist is dropped it's all 'we've decided to part ways' PR fluff, when really everyone knows like your last three albums bombed and you're about as relevant as a popsicle in Antarctica, so.

I believe its true in both these cases.

Leona gave a very detailed account why she wanted out. They just had lame ideas and were forcing her down endless covers projects and second or third hand ideas no other artists wanted in the label. She had a career vision and songs she wanted to make and had them pretty much already done for her Universal deal. Will Young was the same - he'd had actually a lot of success at Sony (his last Sony album was a critical and commercial hit) but felt they were running out of ideas for him and driving him towards safe, housewives music.

Both went to Universal and came out with bad albums that sold poorly or flopped.

Unlike Sony, they had nothing behind them to cash in off as utterly new artists to the label, so their failures were a lot more isolated and exposed.

Its not always a disaster. Robbie Williams made a pretty successful move from EMI to Universal for example. But I think going to a new label after so many years in another is massively high pressure when you're an artist on the outs and your glory days are all anyone cares for. You're bringing nothing with you so the new project has to be a success. Christina is practically a legacy artist already because she's made so many bad music decisions. The odds of her delivering anything impressive for Universal are remote imo.

On another note, it appears this whole story was misreported anyway. She's got a publishing deal with Universal but is still with RCA.

2017 and still it's Britney carrying her in the press.

DEAD @

Fake Attitude Fame Vs. Charming Brit

Christina’s alleged bad attitude has been slowly destroying her career through the years. Staff members and contestants from "The Voice" expressed this year their discomfort with Xtina’s behavior. We’ve been listening about this forever, like when Britney confessed that it wasn’t herself the one who was distant during the MTV Video Music Awards rehearsal but the other way around. "A lost girl? I think it's probably the other way around. I can't believe she said that about me. When someone has been rude to you so many times, it's like, 'You know what, Christina, I'm really not about the fake anymore,," she said, according to US Weekly. Britney on her side, has been supported by a lot of artists during 2016 and she is known for being totally approachable.


Was there not talk of them doing a song together? I guess that won't be happening any time soon.

Caviar ratchet eh? Looks like we're in for another fabulous Clowntina flop era. Too bad they never last that long.

Delicious. My second favourite time on FOMM to Mariah releasing a new CD is a new Clowntina era and all the floppiness that comes with it. #truemusicloversunite


You know RCABabyJane is going to deliver some innuendo packed lyrics punctiated with a myriad of HA!s and SAY!s

Can you imagine if that was the album title? I'd actually give it a few points regardless of material quality just for the name.
