As we approach the season of promotions etc, we remind our readers about our courtesy rule:
Gossip can be hurtful to artists and those associated with them or be an embarressment at a time of contract negotiation. To move beyond gossip, a story must be substantiated by official word from a Press Dept. or directly from the artist (not at secondhand) with their permission for release.
The fact that a story may have appeared in the press does not take it beyond gossip. We do not wish to give further credibility to such stories even under the caveat, "...assuming it is true..". If you have heard or read a story that suggests that something posted here is incorrect or unsubstantiated, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will take the matter forward.
