Published Jun 26, 2015Sky Ferreira has been plotting a new album called Masochism, but it seems that the pop singer is having some behind-the-scenes trouble, since she has attacked her record label in a Twitter spree.
In the rant reportedly posted yesterday (June 25), Ferreira complained that her international label, Polydor, hadn't supported her financially or artistically, and that 2013's Night Time, My Time didn't sell well because it didn't have enough promotion.
The tweets in question have since been deleted, but not before her messages were transcribed. Contact Music reports that she wrote the following:
Me pulling teeth to get a video made from people who literally make treatments shot by shot of my previous video with another artist… They tried to hire every person who worked on all of them & literally replicate it… Ever heard of intellectual property?… I don't get the support I should have by now… At least have the decency to give me some support/budget/promotion for my work, if you're going to rip off my previous work that I paid for… 'Well. You didn't sell ____ amount of records… No shit. I think it did pretty well considering the circumstances… Maybe I would have 'sold more records' if I had the resources to do so. It's completely unfair that can even get used against me… I'm talking about labels & how they all need new structure… & need to be more creative & supportive of the people that they sign.
This isn't the first time that Ferreira has clashed with her record label. She previously complained about album delays, and she blasted her label for not having vinyl copies of Night Time, My Time ready for the initial release date.
Meanwhile, we still don't have any of the details surrounding the release of Masochism. If Ferreira continues to war with her label, that probably won't help it to arrive any sooner.
