Jay Z’s Roc Nation sues Rita Ora for $2.3M

Published

Rita Ora

The path of separation rarely runs smooth, and so it appears at first sight in the case of Rita Ora, who is seeking to disentangle herself from Jay Z’s Roc Nation empire. In December, Ora issued a lawsuit seeking to end her contract with Roc Nation, arguing that a change in direction at the company meant she had been ignored since releasing an album with the label in 2012.

Now, however, Roc Nation has issued a countersuit, charging the singer with being in breach of her five-album contract. In the suit, filed on Friday 29 January in California superior court, the label claims it has “tirelessly promoted” Ora’s career and spent $2.3m on her still undelivered second album. The label is calling for the return of that money, and damages for the albums she has not delivered.

However, Roc Nation’s response may not be as aggressive as it first appears. According to Billboard, Ora’s lawyer, Howard E King, is sanguine about the countersuit, saying Roc Nation had to file it to avoid losing standing in the case. King claimed that Jay Z had called Ora after she filed her suit, agreeing to release her, and that the two parties were finalising the details. The only complication involved Jay Z getting Roc Nation’s parent company, Sony Music, to agree to the settlement.

Ora’s debut album, Ora, was a UK No 1, and contained two UK No 1 singles, RIP and How We Do (Party). In 2013, she said she had been working with Dev Hynes on her second album. Though she has released a series of hit singles apparently from those sessions – I Will Never Let You Down was a third solo No 1 in May 2014 – no album has appeared.

Rwandans ask Salvado To Apologize for Genocide Joke

Published

By Staff Writer

Over the week, a video of Salvado’s standup performance went viral. It was one of his most creative jokes to-date about different airlines and their themes.

On one of the jokes about Rwanda Air, genocide was mentioned as one of the topics air hostesses can’t miss.

Now Rwandans have picked that up and taken offence. They have given Salvado an ultimatum to apologize. But he is not about to allow.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.
