Katherine Jenkins has slammed statements she has been dropped by her testimony label owing to declining sales and exclusive “diva demands“. The 32-year-old Welsh songster signed a £5.8 million three-album agreement with Warner Music Entertainment in 2008, said to be the largest traditional recording agreement in history.
The Daily Mail claimed managements at the label determined not to renovate her agreement later than the singer requested up to £1,500 a day to be spend on her styling, hair and make-up for the period of promotional and live events.
Katherine Jenkins, at present on tour in Japan, wrote on Twitter: “I can confirm that I’m moving record label as I’ve reached the end of my three album deal w/ Warners.”
“I’m super excited about where I’m going next but am currently sworn to secrecy. This is a happy time for me personally and as an artist so do not be concerned by nonsense reports in the press.”
“I personally am getting sick of all the hatred and venom coming from one source. It’s totally unnecessary.”
Katherine Jenkins later added: “Well, it’s been a long day of rehearsals here in Japan. Time to take my £1,500 worth of makeup and my diva demands to bed #Haters #Lies”
Katherine Jenkins‘s last album, This is Christmas, released last year, fatigued at number 26 in the UK album charts, while her preceding album for the label, Daydream, reached number six. Katherine Jenkins competed on the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing With The Stars last year as part of a map to split America.
