There has been a lot of controversy lately on whether or not Arista Records will release Left Eye’s “Supernova” album. We all know how LA Reid did not release the album in the US because he wanted her to record new tracks and beef the album up. However, Lisa did not agree with this, and claimed that LA was in breach of her contract by not paying her the money she was owed from Supernova and wanting her to record new material.
Lisa addressed the topic herself on the Cyber TLC world Message Board, saying “THE REAL SCOOP IS AS FOLLOWS…ARISTA BREECHED BY NEVER PAYING ME MY BACK-END MONEY (THE BALANCE THAT WAS DUE TO ME FOR RECORDING THE ALBUM). WHAT CHEAP TRICKS! WHICH LEFT ME FREE TO TALK TO OTHER RECORD COMPANIES. BUT… BEFORE I CAN OFFICIALLY SIGN ELSEWHERE, ARISTA HAS TO GRANT ME A RELEASE ON PAPER. L.A. REID (AND STAFF) KEEP MAKING PROMISES SAYING THE RELEASE IS NOT A PROBLEM. YET, I DON’T HAVE ONE. BUT THEY WANT ME TO FINISH THE TLC ALBUM. I HAVE REFUSED TO CONTINUE WORKING ON THE TLC PROJECT UNTIL THEY SIGN THE DANG PAPERS. IF SOMEONE FROM ARISTA TRULY MADE THESE FALSE STATEMENTS, THEN THAT IS NOT A GOOD SIGN AND THEY DESERVE WHATEVER THE RED PANTHER BRINGS TO THEM! IT’S A HOSTAGE SITUATION ON BOTH ENDS, BUT THE SNAKES AND RATS NEED TO LET IT GO. THEY RELEASED MY ALBUM OVERSEAS AND MADE MONEY AND DID NOT PAY ME. SOMETHING REAL SNAKEY IS GOING ON AND I DON’T LIKE IT ONE BIT! IF THEY RELEASE VERSES I RECORDED FROM PREVIOUS MATERIAL, THEN THEY ARE CHEATING US ALL. BUT, I WILL PREVAIL. NINA WILL RECORD REGARDLESS. REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY SAY. REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU THINK. REGARDLESS OF ANY HATERS AS WELL. I DIDN’T DO ALL OF THIS CLEANSING AND GETTING SKINNY FOR NOTHING! WHAT I HAVE TO DELIVER WILL GET HEARD. AND WHY AM I WITH THA ROW? HMMM… YOU THINK ABOUT IT. IF I CAN HELP IT, THE WHOLE WORLD WOULD BE IN THA BUSH CLEANSING THEIR DIRTY MINDS AND MOUTHS AND ACTIONS!!! SO, HOW’S LIFE? GOOD I HOPE! IF IT’S SUCKING RIGHT ABOUT NOW I RECOMMEND THAT YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND BE THANKFUL! PEACE OUT AND BE SAFE!!! UNTIL NEXT TIME…”
