Jennifer Lopez akhirnya angkat bicara mengenai kepergiannya dari Epic Records setelah sebelumnya lebih banyak bungkam mengenai label dan album Love? yang nantinya akan beredar di bawah label rekaman Island Def Jam. J.Lo mengumbar semua kisah tersebut lewat wawancara bareng situs penggemar terbesarnya OnlineJLoFan dan berikut hasil wawancara tersebut.

“Yeah, you know, it got to the point…I mean, it’s no secret [that] since Tommy Mottola left, I felt a little bit like an orphan over at Sony because he was SUCH a big part of my first four albums and I just, you know, didn’t even really speak to anybody else at the label,” katanya. “He was my guy; me, Benny [Medina], him. And then he was gone, and I was there, and I had no relationship with anyone else over there. Then they changed people like, three times over the next four or five years and so, we never could really get traction over at Epic. It was weird.”

“But, everyone was doing their best you know? I put out some records that were big hits, and did well, and some didn’t and you know, it was what it was. But, I thought…at this point, we did two dance records with Fresh Out The Oven and Louboutins, which both went to #1 on the dance charts. It felt really good, but at the same time, I had given them seven albums and we had sold 40 million records, you know? Like, we had a good run, but I just felt like; when I sat down with the head of the company, I just said ‘I think it’s time for me to move on.’ And he was like, ‘well, you know…’ It was hard because I love them and they love me, but you know when you just know? It’s like, ‘I think, yeah, it’s time’”.

“’You can’t do what you need to do right now’, and ‘I can’t do this.’ It was just a lot of things, but at the end of the day, we looked at each other and it was kind of like, ‘ok, if this is what you want, then,’ he literally said, ‘I’ll make it easy for you’. And they could have made it very difficult. But they didn’t and it was great. And we both parted ways with a lot of respect for each other and a lot of dignity and I am very excited because I am with a new company and it’s like a new beginning and now I get to have a whole new history. We get to create history all over again and with a new team, and new excitement, and seeing, you know what we can do that was even better than before. So, that’s where we’re at right now.”

Kelly Clarkson dinobatkan sebagai “The best voice in the history of pop music!”. Pemenang American Idol ini mendaoatkan gelar tersebut dalam daftar yang dibuat oleh Esquire. Daftar tersebut berisi 75 wanita terhebat sepanjang masa yang terdiri dari politisi, aktris, aktivis, penyanyi, penulis, dan seniman yang menurut Esquire telah ‘mengukir dunia’. Kemampuan Kelly dalam kemampuan untuk menyanyikan segala jenis musiklah yang menjadikannya sanggup menyabet gelar tersebut. R&B, Soul, Rock, Dance, Pop… You name it and Kelly has probably done it. Selain Kelly, nama-nama penyanyi wanita lain yang berhasil masuk dalam daftar adalah Madonna, Janet, Aretha Franklin, Dolly Parton, Fiona Apple, Liz Phair, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, Cher, The Supremes, Britney Spears, Nina Simone, Chrissie Hind, Joan Jet, dan Tina Turner.
 

Rihanna dan album barunya. Hmm… Berita baru apa lagi yang hadir dari sini. Adalah pernyataan Taio Cruz yang menyebutkan bahwa ada 50 orang produser yang ikutan dalam pengerjaan album si gadis Umbrella ini. “There was a big writing camp with 50 other producers writing for Rihanna’s next album. They had hired out 20 to 30 different studios and had everyone in there collaborating, switching people around. Each person did about six or seven songs. It doesn’t normally work like that but she’s a huge artist.” What a number! Dan bagian yang Taio ambil untuk album barunya Riri ini adalah sebuah “traditional perky pop” yang akan sangat berbeda dari Rated R.
