    Here's a snippet of that article:

    "Arista Records has shown the greatest love of all for Whitney Houston, signing her to the biggest contract in the history of the music business. The deal is worth $100 million (including $25 million up front), eclipsing Mariah Carey's $80 million signing earlier this year with Virgin Records. (This at a time when Arista's parent company, BMG Entertainment, faces a $150 million loss for the year and plans to lay off hundreds of employees.) "

    Lord knows that spoiled little bitch deserves every penny of that, and those hundreds of employees don't... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Excuse me, but has Whitney Houston had a hit song since she tortured us all with that Dolly Parton remake from the Bodyguard?

    I just love it when record companies resign an artist with a mega-bucks contract and then their sales take a dumper. REM, KISS, Motley...etc..

    Yeah, wasn't Whitney Houston last in the news when she was busted for pot at an airport? When was her last hit? [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Sure they do. The $100 million is really just a line of credit. The record co. gets paid first before the artists gets anything.
