“This show will comb the world to find a new breed of talent,” Pinkett-Smith said in a statement. “I am happy to be creating it alongside Simon Cowell, the Sony Team and my partner Miguel Melendez, on behalf of the Overbrook family.”
Anybody who has tried to view Beyonce’s music catalogue on Youtube has probably noticed that Sony records has locked it all up! I did a little investigation and came across an article on E! with all of the details!
First we find out Beyoncé‘snot pregnant, now her infamous music videos are on lockdown?!
By the looks of the Grammy-winning, multihyphenate’s YouTube page, Sony has blocked all of B’s music videos and replaced them with this message: “This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.”
The action comes on the heels of a copyright infringement issue involving Beyoncé’s label, and as techie website Motherboard points out, no doubt stems from the floundering record industry and their desire to have a piece of the online video biz.
No word yet on when those pieces of art Beyoncé calls music videos—you know you love “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”!— will be live on the web once more. We’re just hoping more of our faves don’t start vanishing from YouTube, too.

Here’s a video from MAry’s behind then scenes shoot for her new T-shirt line…
Jennifer Lopez has been dropped by her record label, Sony’s Epic Records, according to a report from Deadline.com’s Nikki Finke. The once-hot singer-actress had begun to stage her musical comeback late last year when she released a new single, “Louboutins,” and then fell while singing it at November’s American Music Awards. (See: the photo at left.) Now, if this latest report is to be trusted (and EW has calls/emails in to her management, label, and personal reps to confirm), Lopez’s seventh studio album, LOVE?, will not hit stores in April as was previously the plan.
Finke cites insiders who said that Lopez’s last two singles (“Louboutins” and “Fresh Out the Oven”) fulfilled the contract she had with Epic Records and LOVE?—which was said to feature productions by everyone from The Neptunes to Darkchild—was never even finished. Lopez’s manager Benny Medina confirmed the split via statement to Finke: “Jennifer had a wonderful relationship with the Sony Music group, and they have shared many successes together, but the time was right to make a change that best serves the direction her career as an actress and recording artist. She is grateful and appreciative to everyone Sony for all that they accomplished together.”
Apparently, Lopez is in talks with music industry heavyweight L.A. Reid to join his Island Def Jam label. Plus, she’s still set to host Saturday Night Live this coming weekend. Although, now it seems she doesn’t even have an album-in-the-works to pimp during the monologue. Should she possibly just pursue a talk-show gig instead? Weigh in below, Music Mixers. [Source]
