Sony Bosses Insist They Haven't Dropped Lennox

LATEST: Sony bosses have lashed out at British newspapers for convincing ANNIE LENNOX she'd been dropped from the label. Executives at Sony BMG have called the stories "ludicrous"and that although they no longer have a contract with the former Eurythmics star, they hope to work with her again. British tabloid The Mirror reported Lennox was upset after learning she had been dropped by Sony after 25 years. She reportedly told the newspaper that label bosses stopped returning her calls and emails at the beginning of 2008, calling the snub a "kick in the teeth". Lennox hissed, "They totally ignored me. It was bizarre." In a statement, released on Tuesday (15Jan08), a Sony spokesman confirmed, "The quotes attributed to Annie's dissatisfaction with her label arose out of a trip in December to South Africa and have no relevance to the expiry of her contract." And Sony BMG Music Entertainment U.K. chairman Ged Doherty adds, "We are immensely proud to have worked with Annie over more than two decades. She now has a choice as to whether she wants to continue to work with us in the future. We very much hope that she will." Lennox's London-based management, 19 Entertainment, had no comment, but suggested Lennox's quotes had been taken out of context.
