Kanye West says he should be allowed to cut ties with EMI.
Kanye is suing EMI and Roc-A-Fella Records. He says the deal he signed with EMI effectively has no time limit ... it could last the rest of his natural life.
He notes in California, personal services contracts cannot last longer than 7 years because they amount to "servitude."
According to the deal, he's required to deliver a certain number of songs and, until they are delivered, the contract remains in full force and effect. Problem is ... that could last 1 year or 80 years.
Kanye wants a judge to cut off the EMI contract as of 2010, which would revert all of the rights of his songs back to him. The year 2010 is important because that's the 7-year mark of his deal.
Ally Brooke released her new song, and music video feat. Tyga, today and fans are going nuts over it.
“I was like, ‘Wow, all the stars are aligning right now.’ After waiting for so long, [thinking], ‘What’s going to be my first single? What’s going to be my sound? What am I going to present the world?’ And this happened. It was so meant to be,” Ally told ET in a recent interview about kick starting her solo music.
She added about the meaning behind the track, “You have mainly the message of like, ‘Get to know me,’ like [in a] relationship and flirting [way]. It’s like, ‘Hey, I know you’re noticing me, but you should get to know me,’ it’s that kind of confidence.”
“I guess in my case too it’s really cool because it also has another meaning of, ‘Hey, get to know me, I’m a human and a woman and I’m my own person and this is what I have to offer you and the world.’ I think that’s really cool,” Ally added.

Kelly Steinbach is suing Fiji Water over a cardboard cutout campaign that she says the company launched without her permission. Steinbach claims Fiji used her unauthorized image holding the tray of Fiji water bottles at the award show.
She says they tried coaxing her into signing away her rights, and even though she did a mock video that appeared to be doing just that ... Steinbach claims she never actually put ink to paper on a real deal. It was all for show. Nonetheless, she claims Fiji moved forward.
Steinbach says that cardboard cutouts of herself started to pop up all over L.A. without her permission.
She says the "Fiji Water Girl" viral moment generated upwards of $12 million in brand exposure, and now she's asking a judge to give her a piece of the pie.

"I'm such a visual person and I've been acquiring all these inspirations," she said. "Las Vegas is an amazing place to put all of that together. People visit to experience something new, different, exciting, to escape their everyday world. I wanted to put together a fantasy and let people [slip] into a world of finding their own true selves. It will allow people to come, just for one night, to let go, to explore their own sense of freedom and give the audience a chance to take off whatever mask they might have to wear in their regular lives."
She added, "You know I love a theme and a concept and I'm creating a specific world for this show. [We are] playing with elements of Mother Nature and visual effects. I'm excited where that takes us."
Her residency follows The Liberation Tour, which ended in November. Aguilera, 38, said the tour is what gave way to this upcoming experience.
"Liberation was such a success for me. The last time I had been on tour was when I was pregnant with my son. And being such a mama bear and wanting to take care of my kids and all of that first it was a long time coming," she said. "[I] want[ed] to get back to my fans and definitely [get] back to what my soul needed to do. To be on that stage has always been my first love since I was a tiny little girl."
She added that the Liberation Tour was her was of "getting back in touch with myself." She hopes she'll be able "to take that to Las Vegas."
