A war of words continues to rage between former Eurythmics frontwoman Annie Lennox and her ex-label Sony BMG. The Daily Mirror quoted the songstress as saying “I've completely run out of energy. I'm now out of contract with Sony BMG.” She also went on to say the record label ignored phone calls and emails for several weeks. Don’t be too quick to judge the mega-company, though.
