HER RECORDS PRESS CONFERENCE WITH MICHELLE HOLLANDE

 

Yesterday the media was taken a-storm by revelations that former business of Salinity Sounds, such as personal manager Juan LeCardo, managed a prostitution ring through the talent agency and sold off their client Kylie Jenner to random men, among those names, Congressman Cedric Richmond. In all the media storm, current signee to Salinity Sounds, Shakira, found herself receiving massive backlash. The singer, who is personally managed by Michelle Hollande, broke her silence first on Twitter. The singer gave a length explanation that Salinity had been completely bought out and re-hauled in June, when she signed to the company. Latter when commenting on Connect, news broke that Shakira had been sexually abused at age 18, making the subject of this news story incredibly touchy and difficult for her to comment on. This morning personal manager and new owner of Salinity Sounds, Michelle Hollande, hosted a massive press conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the event, the singer made a public comment on the current Salinity Sounds sexual misconduct and human trafficking scandal and then proceeded to layout her plan to build up a new label, Her Records, with Shakira as her client. The press conference aired on international news and included questions from MSNBC, Politico, NBC, FOX, BBC, and Washington Review. After the press conference, Michelle Hollande left the conference room to head to her new headquarters.

 

 

 

Michelle Hollande: Good morning and thank you for joining me. Today I would like to first comment on the issues at hand with regards to Ms. Kylie Jenner, Former Salinity Sounds CEO Juan Lecardo, my client Shakira and myself. Beginning in early 2018, the former long-running management company ‘Blood Entertainment’ was purchased by Juan LeCardo, as he signed Ms. Kylie Jenner under Warner Music Group. Shortly after, he re-named  the group ‘Salinity Sounds’. Beginning this June, I decided to purchase the company and sign Shakira, a former Warner x BloodE signee, who was on hiatus and not signed to any label as of this June. During the month of June and July, I began to transition into having full ownership over the company and worked with Shakira as her exclusive manager, while the old management continued to manage Ms. Jenner. My exchanges with Former CEO Juan LeCardo and associates were minimal. We had meetings to sign the paperwork for my purchase and briefly talked on the phone. He was, like most businessmen to me: cold, offensive, overly flirty and misogynistic. Never did I hear of him committing criminal activities. I found him uncomfortable, but due to me being used to working in big corporations with men like him, he raised no new suspicions in me. Shakira, thankfully, never had to meet him. I never had personal contact with Ms. Jenner either, however, I have heard nothing but good things about her from Shakira. Yesterday I met with the LAPD and shared with them the information I have on business files regarding Juan LeCardo and detailed my encounters with him. Today is a sad day as we are now seeing the rampant sexual manipulation and misogyny is in our industry. As an ally to my sisters, I am here today to announce the a major step forward which Shakira and I will be taking. We will be formerly establishing an all female management known as “Her Records”, which will have a rigorous venting system to ensure it is a safe and empowering work place for women. We plan to open out headquarters in a small rising city in the US, to help create more jobs for women. Nobody deserves to undergo the experience that my client, Ms. Jenner and Ms. Grande have undergone. We need to make the industry a safe harbor for the female superstars that we love so much. Her Records will be entirely committed to fighting for women and we look forward to this new journey. I will now be opening to all questions.

 

 

 

NBC News: Why did you not report Juan LeCardo before if you found suspicious? 

 

 

 

Michelle Hollande: As I shared, I was used to the type of misogyny and discomfort that Juan displayed at our meetings. I disliked him, but from a personality standpoint. Never did I believe he would be running a secret prostitution ring or that he had used his clients as a escorts. If I had known that then, I would have never met with him and rather would have press charges to help free Ms. Jenner. 

 

 

 

Politico: Why did you do nothing when you knew that the old management were vicious and sexist men?

 

 

 

Michelle Hollande: Ruthless businessmen and sexism in our industry is a daily occurrence. The men have the money, the power and control the media. For young women it is incredibly difficult to shed light on this issue. For me, I felt it wasn’t my place. Neither Shakira or I had such management, and thus did not find ourselves in the same scenarios as Ms. Jenner or Ms. Grande. I pray they find a safe harbor in Republic Records. But to answer your question more directly, I was not suspicious of those men due to the amount of men I’ve had deal with in my business career. So without any knowledge, I never felt obliged to report their uncomfortable nature.

 

 

 

MSNBC: Was Shakira not signed to BloodE or Salinity Sounds for all these years?

 

 

 

Michelle Hollande: Shakira has not been signed to a record label since she was a part if Warner Music during the Chrysanthemum era and Republic Records during the Classic era. She never was a signee under the Juan LeCardo ran Salinity Sounds. 

 

 

 

Washington Review: Have you submitted all knowledge to the LAPD?

 

 

 

Michelle Hollande: I told the LAPD all I knew, that Salinity was previously ran by Juan LeCardo and he gave off a misogynistic vibe during our paper signage. Myself and Shakira will continue to remain cooperative with the LAPD until they can complete their investigation. We are still waiting on Ms. Jenner to comment on the issue and about if she can recall who it was she was trafficked by.

 

 

 

Closing Statement by Michelle Hollande: I thank you for your questions and will be making further comments as this case updates. For now, I will be putting my full energy into the new Her Records.

That’s nice but the thing is if this is gonna drag on for the whole week I don’t want the Oprah interview to be delayed to like, Wednesday, because I had planned to debut the trailer alongside it. 

Is there any chance I could post it myself?

Tuesday would be the optimal day for this. This interview will have an impact regardless of the day it is posted though and there's not much of a need for a full tracking week in this scenario.

Juan LeCardo Admits Crimes

GBFzXAf.gif
 

Following Kylie Jenner revealing yesterday that Salinity Sounds have sold her to clients & was continuously raped by them, LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) ordered to investigate Salinity Sounds representatives (CEO Michelle, former-CEO Susan and Juan LeCardo) as well as client, Shakira. 


Yesterday, Michelle brought up the name Juan LeCardo and claimed that he was the one who comitted the mentioned crimes and managed the prostitution ring for several years. "The sole info I have for you is the name “Juan LeCardo”, Salinity and Kylie’s former manager, who I beliebe committed these crimes."


During the investigation today, Shakira denied any sort of contact with the men and claimed that she was never sold or forced to have sex with any of the executives at Salinity Sounds. " I never met him, but heard from Michelle that when she had to meet him to sign the purchasing contracts, that he was just another uncomfortable and somewhat offensive businessman. We never expected news like this.  I don’t have any other knowledge of him, as we never were in contact."


Later during the investigation, Juan LeCardo admitted his crimes and was arrested immediately. 


Juan LeCardo: Hola

 

LAPD: Do you know why you're here?

 

Juan LeCardo: I’m here because those girls are trying to frame me as the new Jeffery Epstein because I liked money

 

LAPD: Okay, lets start with this question: Did you or did you not commit these crimes?

 

Juan LeCardo:  You want the truth?

 

LAPD: Yes.

 

Juan LeCardo:  Yes I used Kylie for cash

 

LAPD: Used in what way?

 

Juan LeCardo: I sold her to different powerful men, people like Cedric Richmond

 

LAPD: Alright.

LAPD: You're under arrest. You have the right to remain silent and refuse to answer questions. Anything you say may be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police and to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future.

 

Juan LeCardo:  I will not be silenced!

Juan LeCardo:  Kylie deserved it

Juan LeCardo:  Shakira shouldve been sold to

Juan LeCardo: Liberal baby killers deserve it!

Juan LeCardo:  Trump 2020!


Shakira and the remaining Salinity Sounds executives which were held in custody since yesterday were released an hour ago.

Tinashe | Rolling Stone

TEXT VERSION

Spoiler

Tinashe is one of the biggest names to come out of 2018, the singer has made a name for herself last year with her debut album entitled 'Rewind' that went to sell more than 2 million copies worldwide and peak at #2 on the charts. With several hits under her belt such as 'Anything' that peaked at #8, 'The Ride' that peaked at #4 and the most recent one released this year called '6ix Shots' that is currently sitting at #5 and rising, the pop star has accumulated over 300 million streams on Encore and has to her credit one top 10 hit and two top 5 hits. We're talking about 11 million records sold with a single album alone.

 

Despite Tinashe's hiatus, her comeback has been very anticipated as her new single '6ix Shots' reaches top 5 a month after its release. The hype for Tinashe has been growing with each week as she promotes her new brand single all over the world and prepares for the release of her highly-anticipated second studio album 'Kachingwe' that is exploding with thousands of pre-orders already.

 

As the face of this month’s Rolling Stone cover, the singer sat down with us for an exclusive interview following the release of her somophore album.

 

When you were making your mixtapes, what made you take the decision to finally get signed? Was Sony really the first one that hit you up?

 

Yeah. I actually signed after the first mixtape. I actually put out most of my stuff after being signed. But yeah, when I put out the first mixtape, that was initially when the buzz started growing and different labels were talking about me, and I was taking different meetings with different people and whatnot. Sony was the one, to me, who understood where I was coming from as an artist.

 

They weren’t going to mold me into a particular direction, they understood what I was already doing, so that was what drew me to them, and intrigued me about them. Some of the other people I met with, for example, wanted me to explain myself. They didn’t really get it. And that’s kind of frustrating as an artist.

 

When you’re in the studio, do you have certain types of people you like to have in the room, or do you prefer to be alone with the engineer?

 

I pretty much keep it as minimal as possible. I’m not the type of person that brings friends to the studio, really. Every once in a while, but it depends on the vibe. With some producers, sometimes it’s more of a chill vibe, and there are more people around. With others, it’s different. With some people, I’d rather just have them send me beats and do it in my home studio, so it’s kind of situational based on the producer. But for the most part, I kind of prefer to be more alone in that process.

 

Do you have a certain place or time, when you’re writing, that you find yourself hit with inspiration a lot, or is it just random?

 

It’s kind of depending on where I was in my life, like for a lot of it, it was things I was going through at certain times, and what I was feeling emotionally then, but now, I’m going through a lot of really totally different kind of experiences. I’m meeting tons of people at a time. Now my inspiration is coming from a different place I think, so it’s just kind of interesting. Sometimes I try to draw back to where I was mentally, but it’s always easier to write in the perspective that I’m at.

 

Do you find yourself sometimes more productive?

 

Yeah, I think I probably do better at night. I try to be able to write at all times, but yah, I’m definitely more of a night person than a morning person, which I think most music people are. Probably after dusk; not necessarily late night… when the sun goes down. But on a rainy day? I’m really good on rainy days.

 

How did you find the process of creating 'Kachingwe' different from your first album?

 

I think it eliminated a lot of the wasted time, wasted sessions that happened with the first album. Not to say like totally wasted, but songs that weren’t going to end up going to be a part of the project. I think when I was doing the first album, and working with a lot of people for the first time, not only are you just getting to know each other, and getting to know each other’s styles, but people weren’t totally familiar with me and who I was as an artist.

 

A lot of times when you’re collaborating with these big producers, you kind of have to “try out,” in a way. They want you to sing on their shitty songs, then give you their crappy beats, and you kind of have to prove yourself to get to the point where… I don’t think anyone’s going to try to work for you. So, I think with this second album, I didn’t have to do any of that kind of stuff, so I just went straight to the people that I already knew I had chemistry with and wanted to work with.

 

Have you had trouble being a female artist in the music industry?

 

I think a lot of times, when you’re a young woman, you get put into particular boxes and especially in the music industry, it’s extremely male-dominated, from a production standpoint… really every angle of the music industry is very much male-dominated. So it’s very interesting, and it’s a lot harder to make it as a female artist for a lot of reasons. It does sometimes take a toll on me, because you feel like you don’t get the same type of recognition that you would like, that maybe male “peers” do. But I don’t think that that is a new phenomenon.

 

I know you’ve done acting in the past. Is that something you feel like you’d ever go back to sometime in the future in your career?

 

Yeah, I want to. I want to do interesting roles, challenging roles… I would love to be involved in acting in the future, but I just want to solidify my music career before I take months out of the year to focus on acting.

 

have you ever had any other art forms that you’ve been interested in getting into, like designing, or anything?

 

Yeah, I mean I try to just do whatever I can. I just like to create. I love to make something out of nothing. So directing is something I’d really like to do, obviously. I’ve directed a lot of my own videos and I’ve directed videos for other people.

 

I want to get more involved in my art, to be able to showcase my paintings more. I paint, and it would be really cool to get more involved with that. Fashion, obviously getting more involved with that… have a brand, and try to expand the brand, and develop it from just merch to something that’s more of a lifestyle line. So I just want to do a lot of things in the future. Sky’s the limit.

Tinashe | SNL (United States)

Spoiler

Tinashe is one of the biggest names to come out of 2018, the singer has made a name for herself last year with her debut album entitled 'Rewind' that went to sell more than 2 million copies worldwide and peak at #2 on the charts worldwide. With several hits under her belt such as 'Anything' that peaked at #8, 'The Ride' that peaked at #4 and the most recent one released this year called '6ix Shots' that became the singer's second top 5 hit, the pop star has accumulated over 300 million streams on Encore and has to her credit 1 top 10 hit and 2 top 5 hits. We're talking about 11 million records sold with a single album alone.

 

The hype for Tinashe has been growing each week as she promoted her new brand single all over the world this year and now with the release of her highly-anticipated second studio album 'Kachingwe', the singer is officially back to the music scene with a full body of work after her long hiatus last year.

 

Before the performance began the host of the show introduced her: "We have a very special performer tonight, she has recently released her second studio album and made many people fall in love with her with her debut single 'Anything' last year. The singer has earned her third top 5 hit this year and her rise to stardom has yet to stop. I think you guys know who I am talking about! Well, please give it up for the one and only Tinashe!'

 

6ix Shots / On The Run:

 

The performance opened with an acoustic version of '6ix Shots', with a guitarist next to her Tinashe sang the first verse and chorus in this relaxing acoustic sound. She then switched it up for something more energetic and uptempo, the rising diva appeared on a lit stage where she was seen busting out a show-stopping, gasp-inducing dance breakdown as she was joined on stage by her dancers. Then the lights went off and as the music flipped into an upbeat remix of the track, Tinashe let loose on the dance floor with a solo routine. The crowd was very impressed with Tinashe showing out with some killer moves.

 

For 'On The Run', the singer went for a more simplistic set. As the track played, the R&B princess was dancing seductively to the rythm of the song, she didn't miss a beat. On stage you could just see her band behind her but no female dancers around her like usual, her presence was enough to grab and hold the audience's attention, all eyes were on her.

 

It was then time for her second performance of the night, Tinashe was once again introduced by the host.

 

Dive And Fall / You Give:

 

For one of the more mid-tempo songs on 'Kachingwe', Tinashe gave-up her energetic routines for a minimalist performance. The singer is seen belting out the lyrics of her collaboration with Frank Ocean as she slows things down for some smooth vocals accompanied by a piano.

 

For the last performance of the night, Tinashe gave a scintillating performance of her album track 'You Give' in which she switch it up for a party banger.

 

Tinashe's new album 'Kachingwe' is available on iTunes right now: itunes.co/Kachingwe

You can also stream it on Encore: Encore.co/Kachingwe

@Ronlop since this week is the last until  like November is it alright to just delay harry’s comeback to when we return? Since there’s been no official announcements for a single or anything anyway (not spelled out anyway). Just so I can have a cohesive flow and interest in promo etc?

Yeah that's fine. But since it was announced on Graham, I'll have to give Harry 6 neg updates which will affect his overall followers. 

But you're building him up anyways so it shouldn't be a problem. I hope you understand!
