Dannii Minogue and Ruth Lorenzo team up for album

Dannii Minogue and X Factor 2008 contestant Ruth Lorenzo are to team up to record an album.

Dannii hasn’t recorded since her 2003 album Neon Nights. Ruth Lorenzo finished fifth behind eventual winner Alexandra Burke.

Dannii said: “Its been pushed back to my agenda for a long time. I think since X Factor came on the scene I’ve been heavily involved in the mentoring of other people and helping their music career. It’s kind of scary for me today because it’s like getting back on the horse.”

Alexandra Burke Threatens to Sue her Mum

Filed under: Alexandra Burke

X Factor 2008 winner Alexandra Burke is alleged to have threatened to sue her mother, former Soul II Soul singer Michelle over a new ‘tell-all’ book.

Alexandra is said to have accused her mother of “cashing in” on her fame, and threatened to sue her after “begging her mum not to go ahead with the book”. Melissa is alleged to have serious money problems, and the book would seem to provide the answer to this.

A family friend was quoted in the News of the World saying:

“Everybody thinks she’s rich because she has this popstar daughter but the truth is she’s an ill woman struggling to get by.

“Alex does her best to support her mum and would have kept doing that, but she said she’d have to get lawyers involved and sue if Melissa went ahead with her publishing deal.”

Want to register a protest again Cowell? Don’t vote for JEdward, buy Laura White’s single instead

Filed under: General,Laura White

We’ve been flooded with so many comments in support of Lucie Jones that we’ve been struggling to keep up here at X Factor blog. Tens of thousands of you have logged on to register your disappointment that Lucie has left the show. But what can you do to really make a protest?

Many have suggested that everyone should vote for John and Edward, thinking that this in some way will damage Simon Cowell, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Simon makes money every time someone casts a vote, and he certainly hasn’t lost out with unsuccessful acts like Leon Jackson winning.

The best way to show Simon he is wrong is to buy the single of a girl who was treated very similarly to Lucie last year: Laura White. Laura is signed to a small independent label, but this week charted at a very respectable number 31, despite no airplay or publicity. Unlike a vote for John and Edward, buying Laura’s single You Should Have Known makes Simon no money, but registers a protest against the way he treats the young acts on the X Factor.

We are strongly urging everyone who supports real talent to click here and buy Laura White’s single. For less than 70p you can help propel Laura to chart fame and show Simon the acts he misses out on by choosing controversy over talent.
