Michael Buble was told his music wouldn't sell.
The 'Haven't Met You Yet' hitmaker has revealed that David Foster, who has worked with the likes of Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, told him he would be happy to produce a record for him if he was to pay $100,000 a track.
He said: ''[David told me,] 'You will never be signed to my label, I will never produce you. You are talented but I see no record sales for this genre of music. To dismiss me, [Foster] said, 'For $100,000 a track, I will produce on spec a record for you, and because I'm an executive of Warner Bros they'll get first right of refusal. And then he pushed me out the door thinking he would never see me again.

It's here! Britney's new album is out in full, but there will be no tour to follow.
It’s Britney, b***h. Sorry, that was a bit aggressive, but rather appropriate for the occasion. Spears returns with her eighth studio album, Britney Jean, finally released in full (five days ahead of schedule). Despite the club-appropriate dance tunes on this album, it isn’t getting the kind of promotion of her previous records, nor the same love. Spears has also opted out of a full tour schedule to promote Britney Jean, choosing instead to incorporate the songs into the shows from her Las Vegas residency.
Britney Jean is on top of the world, with a new album and a two-year residency ahead of her.
Her two-year residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas is quite a financially secure gig for the once troubled pop star. With 48 90-minute shows per year, created to span her entire career Spears joins the likes of Celine Dion, Olivia Newton-John, Carlos Santana and Rod Stewart, among others. According to Jason Gastwirth, senior vice president for marketing and entertainment at Caesars Entertainment, which owns Planet Hollywood, speaking for Businessweek, Britney is rather unique within that crowd.
The singer will earn mega-bucks with her new contract at Planet Hollywood, but she still won't be the biggest earner in town.
Britney Spears will begin her two year residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas this winter, and she's not going to be doing it on the cheap either. The pop princess has ironed out all the details in her contract and will reportedly earn a whopping $310,000 for each show she does, meaning that she will earn nearly $15 million each year.
Britney begins her Vegas residency in December
TMZ gained access to some of the finer details laid out in the contract, and state that the singer will be getting $310,000 for each of the 96 shows she has signed on to perform over the course of the next two years, playing 48 shows over the course of twelve months. With each show expected to make up to $508,514 each, this means that Brit will be given more than a 60% cut of the overall earnings her shows make. Not bad for 48 nights work a year.
Ms. Spears has a lot of bragging rights these days - a new single, an extremely well-paid residency - it's all lining up.
The fact that Britney Spears is set for a massive payday for her Las Vegas residency is public knowledge at this point. Still, the exact amount might be a surprise. You should be sitting comfortably for this one – Brit is set to receive $310,000 per show, which, with 48 shows per year makes about $15 million for the entire season.
Britney might have embraced the "Work B***h" motto, but there's always time for a leisurely stroll.
Not a bad deal for Ms. Spears, who is also celebrating the release of her new single, 'Work B***h,' today. The song marks certainly has a much more electronic, club vibe than her older music (which is saying a lot, because a lot of Britney’s music of late has had a heavy club feel). You can hear the track below.
Word’s got out that Britney’s heading to Vegas and now, it seems that more than one company wants in on the deal.
TMZ broke the story that Britney was in talks with Caesars to take a show to Las Vegas, now she’s decided not to return to American Idol. Once the word hit the Sunset Strip, though, other entertainment venues decided that they’d quite like a slice of Britney pie, as well.
According to a new report from TMZ, there are now 3 different Las Vegas properties hoping to clinch a deal with Britney Spears, who is hoping to revive her career in Vegas, with a two-year performance stint there. It will be a demanding prospect for Britney who suffered a number of personal problems and financial issues but she’s made a pretty decent job of repairing her ailing public profile with her work on American Idol.
Last night, a host of stars paid tribute to the late Whitney Houston in a final send-off from the organisers of the annual Grammy Awards. The glittering event, named We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston was led by Hollywood actress Halle Berry and musical tributes came from Jennifer Hudson and Usher amongst others. The music world was shaken by Whitney Houston’s death earlier this year, in a Beverley Hills hotel, on the eve of the Grammys.
Introducing the event, tearfully, Halle Berry said to the audience – who included Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown and former record label boss Clive Davis – “She inspired a generation of little girls and women to believe in their own dream and to know that they had within themselves the greatest gift of all. I was one of those little girls who then became a woman who never ever, ever, stopped loving Whitney Houston.”
The R&B star Usher performed ‘I Believe In You And Me,’ whilst the gospel singers Cece Winans and Yolanda Adams performed ‘Count On Me,’ reducing Whitney’s family members to tears. The X Factor judge Britney Spears shared the experience of how her version of ‘I Have Nothing’ secured her a record deal. Celine Dion was scheduled to perform ‘The Greatest Love Of All’ but was unable to attend, so taped her performance, which was then aired during the event last night. A one-hour version of the show will be aired on CNS on November 16, 2012.
Usher, Celine Dion and Jennifer Hudson have all signed up to star in a TV tribute to the late singing icon Whitney Houston. The life and career of the late pop star is to be celebrated in an upcoming one-hour special titled We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute To Whitney Houston.
The show is to be filmed at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on October 11th and is likely to draw a huge swell of support from the music world given the profile that Houston once had. The show will also feature artists sharing their memories of Houston, as well as clips of some of her most memorable performances and never-before-seen footage.
The special is set to air in the US on November 16th, just days after a new greatest hits album is released. That release will be titled I Will Always Love You - the Best of Whitney Houston and will feature two previously unreleased tracks, including Never Give Up, produced by Jermaine Dupri, and an updated version of previous song I Look To You which features R. Kelly. The star infamously drowned in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles in February of this year during Grammys weekend.
