It was just last week that CrossFade reported news out of Miami that R&B/pop star Kelis was heading to trial for her recent run in with the law this past March in South Beach. As if that's not enough to deal with (aside from everyone hating on her fashion style) late last week, her record company also gave her the boot.
According to a story on Entertainment Weekly, Mrs. Nasir Jones has officially been dropped by Jive Records and is searching for a new label.
Hopefully her luck changes soon or her next single is going to be a cover of "Jailhouse Rock" no matter what label signs her. -- Jonathan Cunningham
