Kelly Clarkson has been fighting with her record label in an effort to stop the release of her single “Already Gone”. She co-wrote the lyrics against a trace provided by Ryan Tedder, a music producer. Turns out, Tedder gave the same track to Beyonce who used the music as the backdrop to her single “Halo”.
Clarkson says, “No one’s gonna be sittin’ at home, thinking ‘Man, Ryan Tedder gave Beyoncé and Kelly the same track to write to.’ No, they’re just gonna be saying I ripped someone off…I fought and fought”. In the end, they’re releasing it without my consent. It sucks, but it’s one of those things I have no control over. I already made my album. At this point, the record company can do whatever they want with it. It’s kind of a sh- – -y situation, but . . . you know, you learn.”
I’ve posted both tracks above. Which is better? I’m sure all the Evil Beet regulars know my vote.
Poor Lady Gaga’s chest exploded whilst performing at the 20th Annual MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, Canada.
Also there was Audrina Patridge in a cheap and ill-fitting dress, my fiance Bradley Cooper and the pure Jonas Brothers. Oh, and I’m totally willing to support Kelly Clarkson in this whole body-acceptance thing she’s got going on, but there must be compromise. No. More. Scarf. Tops.
Rumer Willis appeared with her chin and Tila Tequila was positively stumped over the one-button operation of the Flip Mino HD camera.
Finally, in an admirable effort of frugality, Kim Kardashian fashioned her dress out of one of the extra costumes used by Fergie’s backup dancers.
America has spoken, people, and Kelly is #1 on the charts once again this week with her new album, All I Ever Wanted. I, for one, love the album, but I’m one of the rare people who actually loved My December, too, which flopped because it lacked strong singles. At the time, Kelly insisted on sticking with material she’d written herself, even though her label begged her not to release the album without some more radio-friendly material. I still think it was a damn good album. But I’m glad to see Kelly back on top, one way or another. I voted for you, Kelly!
Congrats to Kelly Clarkson, who’s dethroned Taylor Swift as the reigning queen of the charts. Kelly’s latest album, All I Ever Wanted, sold 255,000 copies this week and landed her the top spot. Taylor’s slipped to the #5 spot, which is totally understandable, because she’s been at the top of the charts for the past geological era.
Meanwhile, Taylor Hicks, another Idol winner, sold a totally embarrassing 9,000 copies of his second album, The Distance. Tickets for his performance tonight at The Roxy have been reduced to zero dollars — that’s right, free — and the show still hasn’t sold out. Simon Cowell must be doing a happy dance right now. I have no idea how that guy won American Idol. It’s probably why they’re fixing the results now and allowing for a judge’s save. They want cash cows, not old gray-haired cows.
