It’s on now, Sony BMG! Perez Hilton is planning to boycott all Sony BMG artists in response to the lawsuit they’ve filed against the professional canker sore. Perez is unable to understand why Sony BMG is angry that he streamed Britney Spears songs on his site, as the attention he’s given her obviously has helped the sales of Blackout, which has currently sold a quarter of what 2003′s In The Zaa-own pulled. As much as it will pain him not to scribble on the faces of artists such as Britney, R. Kelly, Leona Lewis, and Kenny G, he swears their faces will grace his blog no more. Gasp!
Yes, we are thrilled that Leona Lewis is doing so well in America.
She has a #1 song with Bleeding Love and we can say…..”We called it way back in 2006!”
Leona’s success is also very bittersweet for us because, as many of you have noticed, we haven’t been writing about her. Nor will we mention her any time soon.
We also have several other artists that are “dead to us.” They include: Tori Amos, Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, The Gossip, Adele, Lil’ Mama, Pink, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Whitney Houston and more. These are some of our favorite musicians. It really, truly pains us not to talk about them. But, it is something we HAVE to do!
Because Zomba, which is owned by Sony BMG, is suing us and we had a lightbulb go off recently: we can’t support any artist signed to Sony BMG.
Why should we help the company suing us make money???? Especially when their lawsuit is personal!
…Sony BMG may win this battle, but at the end of the day we will be the ones laughing.
We KNOW that our support can help their artists, some of our favorites, immensely. We hope alienating us was worth it for Sony BMG!
Every other label out there wants to have us as a friend. It really makes us question the business practices of Sony BMG that they would rather have Perez as an enemy.
And, though we may never write about Leona again, we still love her. Always will. Same for Xtina. And J Lo. And Adele. And Ditto.
Our heart is sad.
Celebrities have already begun to voice their support for Perez’s bold stand:
