Professor Green launches attack on EMI over latest single campaigns
Yes go Professor Green! We love it when pop stars stand up for themselves against their record labels if they need to.
Green has taken to twitter today to have a pop at certain members of team EMI.
The first comment generally set up the argument: ‘Why would your own record label hinder you? Answers on a postcard.’
But clearly getting more worked up he continued: ‘I just can’t help but question why some people have jobs. All I do is work, so I get extremely p****d off when people don’t do theirs.’
Green obviously have some specific problems with his latest campaign around his singles ‘Remedy’ and ‘Avalon.’ ‘Dignified silence is pointless. A rushed second single, the Remedy video a month late and now similar problems with the Avalon video unfold.
‘How would you feel if a company taking 25% of your earnings weren’t doing their jobs properly?
‘Would you pay someone not doing their job? A live gig = 10% to agent, costs and expenses, 20% management commission then 25% to a label who hardly even come to gigs let alone help.’
He then went onto say that other pop stars ‘bend over’ and take it but he wasn’t prepared to do that.
What do you think of his rant? Should is be behind closed doors or is he right to tell people how it is?
