I thought Adele was with XL and Columbia in the US. I'd assume it would be an artist on the same labels Leona is who would benefit by her inclusion .

It would be very damaging to Simon's and Syco's, and by extension, Sony's reputation, who own 50% of Syco. These are major music industry players here. Whoever is trying to spread this rumor are...

Exactly.

In the US, most big stations are controlled by the 2 or 3 major radio syndicates and you pay "brokers" to get you radio play. If Island will stump up the cash, Leona will be played. But...

Do you think an underling at Syco would dare to do something as damaging as that to the company he works for on his own hook? Simon's nickname at Syco is "God". Never happen.

They are and pay plenty in damages when they can't back up assertions. And Cowell, should he bother, would sue any media that sought to damage his reputation . And certainly a rival label if Island...

I hope that doesn't come from anyone on Leona's team, or Island, because it's libelous, and unless they have evidence, Cowell could certainly sue. Could probably sue DS if there's no...

Sure she can, but this was a professional appearance. I don't think it works for her. She's no longer in her early 20's. Has Seb Webber persuaded her that this is the way to chart heaven? Hope...

That could be suggested to anyone on this thread.

The fact is Leona has many fans who respect her talent more than that of a Gaga, or a Miley Cyrus. Although, I will say, I've never seen MC in...

Why would anyone pay premium prices to have denim pre-ripped. That's on the same level of idiocy as body piercings and covering your skin with colored ink that can only be removed or altered by...

Fine. Not arguing. i genuinely don't know, just making the point that it has to be continuous for classical singing, because some posts seemed to be implying that it was not. As though once done,...

Yes, I realize she's had lessons, probably at the Brit School (?), but my question was whether she has kept up her classical training over the last 10 years. It's something that's continuous, even...

My point was that she is being badly advised. Ripped jeans (overalls) look silly on a 30 year old woman. In fact they look silly on everyone over 16, but that's another story.

And made her a multimillionaire. Why do people keep forgetting that. Leona might still be an office assistant in Hackney if it weren't for Simon Cowell

Generally, but it doesn't do that for Leona. Just makes her skin look muddy. She looks great in white and clear vibrant colors. Maybe she doesn't like them. Oh well.
