Sony Music Reportedly Plans To Drop Dr. Luke

According to sources close to the bosses at Sony, the music company is reportedly gearing up to drop super-producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald amid the public's response to Kesha's rape allegations. A few weeks back, Sony released a statement saying the company is 'legally unable' to terminate the contract between Kesha and Dr. Luke, but now that the "Adeles of the world" are calling out the label, adding to the PR nightmare, suddenly it's time to take action. Via The Wrap:

“There is no contest. Kesha has no case in regards to her contract but they can’t afford the Adeles of the world out in the streets calling the label unsupportive,” one individual familiar with upper management’s thinking told TheWrap. “The fact that this hasn’t already been taken care of with Luke is confusing, especially for people in the building.”

It's not clear how Sony will dissolve its relationship with Dr. Luke, but The Wrap notes that CEO Doug Morris and his boss, Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton will make the call.

Now that's an email chain I'd like to see. (Via: The Wrap)

"A Star Is Born" Remake Won't Include Beyoncé Because Bradley Cooper Couldn't Pay Her Bills, Bills, Bills

Welp. The doomed "A Star Is Born" remake will likely be scrapped or placed "on the back burner" because director Bradley Cooper can't afford Queen B. According to Page Six, Cooper has his eyes set on Beyoncé for the lead role (because duh) but Warner Bros. refused to pay the figure team Knowles-Carter requested. A source added that despite budget issues, Cooper plans to stick with the film, but will hold off on finding Yonce 2.0 while he works on other projects. (Via:
