What Took Rock Star Supernova's Dilana So Long?

Morley has a great new interview with Dilana, the woman that many felt should have been the winner of Rock Star Supernova. And perhaps had she been picked, the supergroup would have had a much different fate. We'll never know but we do have a small except from the interview where Dilana explains why it took three years to release her brand new album, Inside Out. Here you go!

"Basically the first problem that occurred was bad management obviously. I, immediately after the show, started writing, co-writing with other artists, so I basically had the record ready June of 2007 which was exactly a year after the show," she said. "I signed a really bad contract with an independent label in the UK who went bankrupt five shows into a six-week tour. And basically left me stranded in London with my entire band and no way to get back to the US. So that was the first you know, big let down. And then I had another guy who basically was a fan of mine and won the lottery on the East Coast. So he bought the record from the label in the UK that went bankrupt. "

[antiMusic.com's Morley Seaver: Huh, wow.] "And yeah, that was my reaction. I was like 'Oh my god. This is so great because this guy is such a fan and you know, he's going to work with me on this.' But the thing is he had never been in the music industry. So he started up the label and this all happened in January of last year---I can't believe it. It's a year ago, oh my God. So about four months later we were still going back and forth between our lawyers trying to figure out the contracts and I just couldn't get to a place of comfort and feeling that 'this isn't going to happen to me again.' And I was dealing with a guy who suddenly puts together a label with people who know nothing. And it was kind of a weird thing but we both at the same time decided that this is not going to work. I never signed a deal with him and he still owns the record. And the label has released it. So basically my hands are tied. I have no control over the record."
