Lennox let go, slapped in face

Now, we're not big fans of Annie Lennox round here, but we're a little slack-jawed at the way Sony BMG treated her as they decided to no longer offer her a musical home:

"They totally ignored me. It was bizarre. It was a kick in the teeth. They didn't return my phone calls or emails for three weeks. I'm trying to find out what's behind it.

"Probably a good thing I'm no longer with them - mild understatement. Unless it's them trying to tell me something... Hello!"

It's one thing to let someone go - it's a business decision, and that's fair enough - but this is a pretty shitty way to treat someone who's done good business for the label over the years. It's one step shy of dumping a girlfriend by text.
