News:: X Factor’s ‘Rhythmix’ name battle

28 10 2011

A music charity that works with vulnerable children has warned that it will be forced to cut projects, unless the makers of The X Factor settle a legal battle over one of the show’s groups.

Rhythmix is suing Simon Cowell after his Simco company lodged a trademark application to use the same name for a girl band competing in this year’s series.

The Brighton-based charity, which works with youth offending teams to create music programmes for vulnerable children and those with learning difficulties, said The X Factor namesake was causing confusion and disrupting sessions. Mark Davyd, the charity’s director, said Simco was “fully aware” that the charity, which has been established for 12 years, was already using the name, yet had pursued the trademark “without considering any moral implication or negative impact on the charity”.

50 Cent x Gamu

You what?

I see this on Yhaoo…

50 Cent has reportedly signed ‘X Factor’ reject Gamu Nhengu to his new record label.

Her deal is said to be with the newly launched G-Note Records, under the name Miss Gamuchirai.

“Miss Gamuchirai has been singed to 50 Cent’s new record label, G-Note,” said a source.

“G-Note will focus on 50’s favourite acts that don’t fit neatly into G-Unit’s hip-hop categorisation and will favour pop and R&B artists.”

It’s also thought that Fiddy had to wrangle with her ‘X Factor‘ contract before getting her signature.

“It is believed that many labels have been interested in signing Gamu but G-Note offered the best deal and are best connected to make her dreams reality,” they added.

Gamu was sensationally passed over by Cheryl Cole at the Judge’s Houses stage of ‘The X Factor’ in favour of Cher Lloyd and Katie Waissel.

It later emerged that Gamu faced deportation back to her native Zimbabwe after her family’s visa reportedly expired. [MTV]
