Last April HitsDailyDouble reported information about Selena Gomez’ contract status with Hollywood Records, and the changes in her managers/agents roster. Back then, the reliable music industry website asserted that Selena was out of contract with her label (supposedly ‘Stars Dance’ was her last album), and that she was seeking a new management team, which eventually came to be Direct Management, but to be more precise Steve Jensen and Martin Kirkup, employees of said company. This management is the same that manages Katy Perry, and this sparked the rumors Selena was soon to join Capitol Records.
Well, today, June 26, HitsDailyDouble has updated the information they have on the future of Selena Gomez. She has not signed a new label deal as she still had to release ONE MORE ALBUM with Hollywood Records. However, it seems the two parties have amicably reached an agreement for which Selena doesn't have to release an original full-length album with the label. Instead, Selena is confirmed to be releasing later in 2014 (expect it for the Christmas period) a GREATEST HITS album, that will included one or two brand new songs. But that's it. Once that album is released, Selena Gomez will become a free agent and will be able to do what she wants with her life.
HitsDailyDouble also reports today that Selena has FIRED Direct Management’s Steve Jensen and Martin Kirkup! Say what? Uh-huh, they have only lasted ONE MONTH with Selena. What happened? They don’t do their jobs well or what? Selena’s new manager (she's hired a new one already) is Aleen Kesheshian, who manages the careers of the likes of: Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana and Laura Linney.
Selena is evidently changing labels too. Will she go to Capitol after all? After parting ways with Katy’s Direct Management it seems not, but who knows! Hopefully she doesn’t make the absurdity of singing with Epic.
