Madonna Signs Three Album Deal with Universal/Interscope

MadonnaThe cover girl is back & working on new material with a new label.

Madonna recently signed a three album deal with Universal Music Group’s Interscope for $3 million. The new contract is in addition to  her ongoing 10 year contract with Live Nation (which she signed in 2007; potentially worth as much as $100 million).  Madonna joins existing Interscope artists including Lady GagaP Diddy and 50 Cent.

Live Nation CEO Irving Azoff originally mentioned in Feburary that a marger could happen for the star sometime later in the year. “Live Nation, prior to the merger, entered into some of these all-rights deals, so there are certain artists, Madonna being one of them, that there is a recorded-music strategy,” Azoff said. “Once she gets the album recorded, we’ll sit down with her and her manager, Guy Oseary, and figure out what’s best for the record. It has to start with the music.”

Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’

Britney Spears Gasoline

Britney Spears’ album Femme Fatale is a saucy but dark LP that has everything to do with club and dance music. One of the less talked about songs, which holds the essence of the whole album in it is the fiery self explanatory song ‘Gasoline,’- a Claude Kelly written song. According to Kelly, he wrote this song while focusing on the sexiest moments of Britney’s career.

Talking in an interview with MTV, Kelly said that when he was writing the song, the theme he wanted to emulate was that of the one displayed in previous Britney songs such as ‘Toxic,’ ‘Slave 4 U’ and ‘Boys.’  he said that Britney in the physically hot club with guys around her is a very popular theme and he thought that revisiting it once more would be a lot of fun.  He said that even though some may think that Britney would not have been able to recreate the kind of ‘man-eater’ persona that she was once known for in her raunchy songs, she actually pulled it off without breaking a sweat, proving that she still has what it takes to do whatever she wants. page_go Continue reading Britney’s Songwriter Claude Kelly Explains ‘Gasoline’ »

Britney Shares Her Thoughts on ‘Femme Fatale’

Britney Spears Looking AwayIn a lengthy Twitter post, Britney shared, “I would describe it as moody, edgy pop with A LOT of energy. I co-wrote a couple of songs. I think it’s some of the best work I have ever done. There are a few mid-tempos that could be considered ballads. I have a lot of history with #MaxMartin and @TheDoctorLuke so it’s always fun to collaborate with them. They make such incredible music. I’m so excited and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it. I think its some of the best work I have ever done!”

She then went on to thanks her dedicated fan base for sticking with here through all the ups and downs of her career. “Just want to say that I really love you guys and can’t thank you enough for the support throughout my entire career,” Britney tweeted.

Femme Fatale – Not Britney’s Own Invention

Britney SpearsWhen Britney Spears made her debut in late nineties and quickly achieved superstardom, she had just the right amount of cuteness and sex appeal to woo her listeners and viewers. She continued producing hit albums after the immense success of her debut album ‘Baby One More Time,’ with the latest in line being her new ‘Femme Fatale’ album. Even though fans have already developed a liking for her latest dance-rich offering, a small section of critics are not especially fond of the fact that Britney didn’t write any of the Femme Fatale songs herself. page_go Continue reading Femme Fatale – Not Britney’s Own Invention »

Blink 182: Moving on after Producer Jerry Finn’s Death

Blink 182Blink 182’s bass guitarist and co-lead singer Mark Hoppus sat down with MTV last week and revealed how the punk rock band is trying hard to finally wrap up the album, which they have been working on for a long time now.

Hoppus said that one of the main reasons for the massive delay has been the fact that all the three band members have their personal projects and therefore, finding time for Blink 182 has been tough for them all. However, what many don’t know is that band suffered a major blow three years ago when their longtime producer Jerry Finn died. Not only did he supervise the trio’s last three studio inventions, but he also advised them on their personal and business matters and critiqued their music without any bias. Finn also contributed his part in the studio, where his valuable suggestions helped the Blink fine-tune their multiplatinum music. The producer has been associated with the group since their 1997 album Dude Ranch, which is why Hoppus thinks that they are so badly shaken up by his untimely death. page_go Continue reading Blink 182: Moving on after Producer Jerry Finn’s Death »
