The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, letąs face it, the man rocks.

Former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole filed a lawsuit against the production company behind the Fox reality singing competition, claiming they owe her at least $2.3 million after being unceremoniously let go during the first season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.



Cole, who was abruptly let go from The X Factor less than three weeks into production and replaced by Nicole Scherzinger, claims she had a pay-or-play contract with Blue Orbit Productions, meaning when she was hired, she would be paid whether the company behind X Factor kept her on the series or not.



Which shows have been canceled? And which have been renewed?



The British pop star was reportedly paid $1.8 million as salary for the first season, but was not given the additional $2 million for the second season, along with money promised for her expenses, including a wardrobe allowance, salary for her stylist and a living allowance for her stay in Los Angeles. Cole's lawyer is also asking for interest on the money, legal fees and "further relief as the Court may deem just and appropriate."



Do you think Cole deserves the money?
