Archives For jive records

Backstreet’s Back in more than one way. A new song on the radio, a new album on the way and a forthcoming tour to follow are all in the works for Kevin, Nick, A.J., Brian and Howie. The fellas, who are marking their 25th year as a group, stopped by our booth Backstage at The Billboard Music Awards to chat with me about the new projects and their existing residency at Planet Hollywood.

Leave it to Ralphie to call out T-Pain on acting like a diva… of course, enlisting the help of TMZ’s Leslie Harris in the process…

Catch Leslie on TMZ TV – Weekdays at 6 on Channel 38 – The CW.

it seems as if t-pain took a cue from his label-mate and now record-mate justin timberlake in the pre-handling of media interviews. i received this list of what could and couldn’t be asked to t-pizzle, as per his management via jive/zomba records…

(pain and i in ’05).
“Please let interviewers know that Pain will only be discussing his album release on 11/11 and any other topics surrounding what he is currently doing. He will only answer one question on Wayne and upcoming projects they have. No questions on picking favorite artists, who he would like to work with or any other kind of lists.”

i actually like the last sentence – because those types of questions are corny, cliche, and over-asked. but otherwise, pain needs to hop off the high horse and back on the vocoder, pronto tonto.

i love lawyers and their inappropriate use of “irreperable injury.”
