Jennifer Lopez Leaves Sony Music Epic Records

Jennifer Lopez is leaving Sony Music Epic Records, and her 7th studio album, Love?, will not be released this April as planned.

The 40-year-old entertainer will still likely have a greatest hits album released this fall, according to Deadline.com.

J. Lo‘s manager, Benny Medina, released a statement earlier today, saying, “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.”

Jennifer is still scheduled to host and perform as the musical guest on SNL next weekend.

She was dropped from her label. She can’t sing. I really wish Marc Anthony would tell her the truth about her bad singing. He knows she’s horrible at singing….. he can sing.

jennifer was dropped from her record label. Nobody leaves sony music. Her time is over with music, she doesn’t get it. Just stop already,and find something else to do. She has no talent.

jlo in wonderland.. @ 02/22/2010 at 5:43 pm

She looks like a hooker out there….so 2001 with her skin tight
outfits… Beyonce isn’t this trashy.. Notice how she goes to these
out of the way concerts..Not a regular stadium.. Glad Ben dumped
her after she went crawling back to Mr. Medina the man that ruined
her the first time. and stole a lot of her money..so now she lost her
clothing line perfume line and now has a movie that she copied from
Jen Aniston about having a baby…

# 8

she’s a fat ass ***** with no talent, she just blowjob everyone

# 9

Let’s see first her fashion line -
then her movie career-
and now her recording career is kaput…
Marc has done wonders for career .Because he has control of everything she does.Instead turning everything to gold.He turns everything to Sh@t!
Somewhere Ben Affleck is laughing

@paul: I think she’s a pretty good actress and she should focus on that. Hang up the mic.

Oh c’mon guys. The easiest thing to do is just to spit over people, right? I don’t believe any of you actually know her, and @richard how the hell do you know she gave blowjobs to climb up the social ladder? I mean, yeah okay, you don’t like her, and as far as you’re concerned she doesn’t have any musical talent to begin with.. but grow up and take care of your own asses before looking at others. She’s there, she’s famous and has more money than you and me can only imagine having.. so I don’t think she really cares what WE think about her.. don’t you think?

And yeah, you can spit over me as well, if that will make your ego grow faster.. I don’t really care really. Have fun and enjoy life fully.

haters stop hating!
jlo is the best!
im sure shell find another record label and will rock it

Hmm Something is a bit fishy about this. Ohwell, hope she finds a record label soon.

retire already

So over......... @ 02/22/2010 at 6:27 pm

Hey J LO
Since you behaved like such a nasty diva for so many years and treated everyone like $hit for so many years and treated your FANS like crap for so many years, your career is now OVER.
So get over yourself and go home.
FYI
Ben agrees with us.

So over......... @ 02/22/2010 at 6:29 pm

Also, the story sounds twisted, like her………
They label probably dropped her because she’s not bankable any more.

Man, gone are the good ol’ days when she was just amazing. her last albums didn’t make much of an impact (remember brave…or not) and now she’s dropped? I doubt they parted on good terms, either she got mad because she believed they weren’t doing their part or vice versa.

Either way, the statement seems too fake.

And I don;t think Affleck would care either way, I mean, look at his career.

Since when is this hack considered a recording artist? Wow, this is sad.

JENNIFER THE BEST!

she got dropped @ 02/22/2010 at 7:07 pm

She lost the it factor .I like jlo but you have to be honest ,enjoy your family Jen but singing is NOT for you.

Jamie Lynn's Uterus @ 02/22/2010 at 7:10 pm

She got fired, because she can’t sing, she never could. She can’t act either. Even modern recording technology could not help her awful voice. She is a horrid, untalented broke down has been ****.

The destruction of J-Ho continues! I love it. This tired old has been worn out s l u t is ready for the garbage bin of bad untalented celebrities.

Don’t forget for her ‘fashion line’ she used to slaughter animals for fur. She’d do anything for cash. Such a ********* !

Go away JHO! We are done with you!

Ms Anonymous @ 02/22/2010 at 7:17 pm

Oh my Merlin, are you haters a sad lot. Hope Karma pays you a visit!

Jlo is still gorgeous as ever and still obviously relevant, otherwise we wouldn’t be discussing her. When you’ve had her success, there will always be haters claiming this is the end. The end has lasted for several years. Deal.

I can’t get over what horrible plastic surgery she has had. She looked pretty before, now she looks tight and like Heidi Montag–YUCK.

why can’t anybody dislike someone without being called a hater?
Jlo is old news, she can’t sing, she tries wayy too hard, she get kicked by her record label.. Facts of life! No big deal

One of Lopez’s famous spins for I got dropped because I can’t give it away now. LOL! wndrng totally agree with you. Her Stans kill me with this it’s a conspiracy and everybodies jealous of her crap. Don’t you see most people could give a damn. What is she paying your rent or something, reserve that passion for something that really effects your life, not a narcassistic egomaniac.

Norma Stitz @ 02/22/2010 at 7:35 pm

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH – J.ello kicked to the curb….go back to the Bronx you talentless beotch!

I’m going to move my coffee table and do a handstand!! Thank God one more talentless moron gone from the already sad music scene.

They let go of someone with her incredible octave range and mindblowing talent !?! No say it ain’t so, there’s going to be rioting in the streets over this one. I guess the sausage suits didn’t work poor thing.

J.LO THE BESTTTTT

She’s producing a greatest hits album? What would be on it?!? It’s time to pack up, JLo. I believe you’re done … your talent could never match up to your ambition …

andamentothat @ 02/22/2010 at 7:55 pm

she looks like olsen twins

JENNIFER GARNER @ 02/22/2010 at 7:56 pm

SHE IS SO PATHETIC, OLD AND USELESS.

just sayin @ 02/22/2010 at 8:05 pm

@JENNIFER GARNER: garner is even more useless to be honest. lol

Damn they won’t let Betty White host but they let this broad on. SH** I’d rather see Betty!!

jerzeegirl @ 02/22/2010 at 8:19 pm

She can’t sing & it looks like her fan base has moved on.

Pretty good actress? Oh, please!!! Somebody has a very low IQ.

aka got dropped by her label.

VileB*tch @ 02/22/2010 at 9:38 pm

J-Ho is a vile c*nt, she has used children dying of cancer and the tragedy in Haiti to further her pathetic career.

She has slaughtered animals to make money for her ‘fashion’ line.

She is a vile,disgusting horrible diva who has treated everyone else poorly.

She has slept her way around, blowing anyone that could further her career, the list is endless and well documented.

She is untalented and cannot sing, dance, act or design clothes. She is a disgusting mediocre piece of trash.

She will tell us she’s real, but if you have to write a song about it, you’re not real, honey. It’s time for this awful pig to leave the entertainment industry for good.

By the way, when is her lewd tape coming out? Soon, I’m sure, to generate more press.

@paul:

lol ure so right! noone “leaves” Sony music. she was soooo dropped! she’s just trying too hard these days. She should accept that she’s in her 40s now and evolve in that direction

I think people should only give nasty comments when they know all the details!!! You don’t have a clue about was is truly happening and you want to insult JLO. You all have a right to your opinion, but what bugs me the most is that you come on this website and read about her and then make nasty comments. Why even read about her if you don’t like her!!! She has been around for a long time and her career is not over!! She still has a lot of fans!!! JLO IS AWESOME!!!

No matter what the statement says. It sounds like J Lo was dropped by her Label. If what J Lo says is true? I wonder what Label is going to be foolish enough to pick up her new album with all the bad reviews the two singles are getting. I wouldn’t touch this with a 10 foot pole. J Lo’s last couple albums did poorly. I don’t see anyone wanting to waste money on promoting an album that is showing signs of not going beyond J Lo’s fan base. Which isn’t as big as it use to be.

Mr Anonymous @ 02/23/2010 at 12:25 am

JLO is La CABRONA with no talent who got dropped by her record label.

Mr Anonymous @ 02/23/2010 at 12:27 am

So long Cabrona!

Oprah has announces that she is leaving her show. Somebody has to take her spot. I think J.Lo would be perfect for this. She does have a lot of fans, and people want to see her. I just don’t think they want to see her sing or act. She is beautiful, fashionable, has a sense of humor, and has great charisma. J.Lo, take over the Oprah show!!!!!!!

bohemeballerine @ 02/23/2010 at 1:24 am

J-Lo is many things but Oprah she is not and never will be!

Ha-ha…yeah, “leaves.” Uh-huh. Okay.

Macchiato @ 02/23/2010 at 3:02 am

they probably dropped her 4 recording a crap song like louboutins!

she and her manager are cooking something

As his fan i was waiting for this YEARS. I´m not saying everything is because of sony. She has been without almost any contact with the music and her fans since her marriage with Marc. But Sony is f****** her since get right, when she was still successful. We had nothing but bad promos, only one single promoted and 2/3 performances at all, we are talking that sony didn´t even put money for a video for her first single of LOVE. It´s not coincidence a lot of artist are running away from Sony, because now there is only place for Beyonce. So jennifer and benny took a risk but i think that is what she needed, a new boost far from a company that didn´t like her since Mottola isn´t there and only give her brandy´s leftovers. I think it´s almost definitive she is going to Def Jam (yaaaay!)

I like JLO’s music and wish she would release even more.

The Greatest Hits album is something I will get if it comes out.

————Britney Spears is still V.I.P.——————————-

she needs to retire from the entertainment biz..

They dropped her, just like they dropped Jessica Simpson. They spin it so it sounds like they didn’t but they did.

She just made a statement saying that she found a new home for her album and that it will be released!! She got signed to a new deal. So people who want to make comments that they don’t know about should check their resources before making ignorant comments!! LOVE JLO FOREVER!!!

J. Lo is unfortunately like the many artists who starved for fame and fortune and signed her life away to an industry set up to exploit you. She’s now finding that out after the honeymoon is over with Sony and she’s read her contract. What she and others (like Madonna) who have built their own brand need to do is take control of their business. After all they created their own brand and could do fine by themselves, make enough money to live comfortably by themselves. There’s many sites out their that don’t exploit you, force you to sign your life away. Example, checkout Melody Management or http://www.myspace.com/gomelody. They have the right business model for Artists. Real simple, sell anywhere and keep 85% of everything, paid weekly direct to you. Many artists could do this and say screw the label.

love j.lo @ 03/05/2010 at 3:28 pm

ugg its whats best in my opinion epic wasnt doing what they needed to promote her yea shes already big but stll in my opinion they werent doing her justice it happend to mariah carey she was droped with colombia records and she came back stronger then ever on island records remember yea there vocal ability is clearly diffrent but j.los drive and passion for music will keep her on her radios and tvs for years to come get over it haters and accept the fact that she aint goin away..shes been makin hits for a decade now and is a very talented actress i have faith in her that she will find a new label and be hotter then ever . shes very talented and beautiful and yes she can sing everyone has somthing diffrent to offer and jlos is in no way untalented get over it losers take a look at yur self in the mirror who wants to talk about you ..?? nobody why cuz yur nobody thats why u hate on sombody who is actualy doing what they love not a underacheavrer or a loser like u people who take the time to write hatefull comments get yur facts straight….. i love u j.lo have patience and faith u will be fine i know it!!!
