Rumor has it JD might lose his job if Janet's album flops



According to O1LT.com:
"By now everyone has heard that Janet’s album debuted at number 2 this week on Billboard’s Hot 200 at the hands of Def Jam severely discounting Ludacris’s album to $5.99 to beat her. What you might not know is that this was Janet’s last album under Virgin which technically makes her a free agent. If this CD doesn’t do well it will be very hard for Janet to secure a valuable recording contract elsewhere. If you remember Mariah Carey’s situation, she got signed to Virgin for 80 million (or was it a 100 million), but when her "Glitter" album tanked she was dropped by Virgin and signed with Island Def Jam for a meager 20 million. It's also being reported that Virgin is very unhappy with Janet’s sales figures and JD himself might be in jeopardy of losing his job. Lets all see how this unfolds"

According to HHNLive:
"The numbers are in and it's not looking too good for Ms. Nasty and JD aka "Yall know who this is!" It doesn't help that Luda sold his CD as low as $5 according to what
LT said. From what I've seen on most sites, the official numbers are Ludacris 309,000 & Janet Jackson 296,000. Most of you should know that this CD is the last one under Janet's Virgin contract. After this she's a free agent. From what Miss Info told me " She's turned down a bunch of lucrative deals, but from what I hear I don't see many labels picking her up again after this fiasco". We've seen Janet's ass on the cover of everything, you think all that ish was free!?! Virgin promoted the hell out of this CD and it's still not putting up the numbers. That's not all, Jermaine who heads the Urban Music division at Virgin, produced this whole CD without any input from the Virgin brass. I've heard from some Virgin reps that I got drunk with (long story) that some big cheeses are feeling real salty about wasting their money and if things continue to go the way they have been, JD's position might be in jeopardy. Besides Dem Franchise Boys who I think went gold......I think...who else out of the So So Def/Virgin camp went platinum since JD took over? At least they still have each other. In this Love Story, love may cost a job.... No wonder why JD was pushing people on MySpace to not pay their light bill and buy the album, his may be cut off in a minute"
