If you read the title of E!’s new reality TV series about women in the music industry, The Platinum Life, and thought it was about the female executives behind a few Platinum-selling records, you should have been right.
While we applaud any small screen show that highlights music, The Platinum Life is a missed opportunity. Check out this press release excerpt below from E!:
“LA’s music industry is notorious for exclusive parties, high-profile romances, and huge fan followings, but being in relationships with some of the biggest names in the business is not always pitch perfect.”
No, The Platinum Life isn’t about incredible women like Jody Gerson (UMPG) and Katie Welle (Sony/ATV), who have helped their artists achieve great things. It’s about the partners of NE-YO, Nelly, Miguel, Eric Bellinger, Kid Ink and King Los.
“The leading ladies include Crystal Smith, married to Multi-Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and actor NE-YO; La’Myia Good, married to Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Eric Bellinger; Shantel Jackson, in a relationship with Grammy Award-winning rapper, singer, songwriter and producer Nelly; rapper and songwriter Lola Monroe, in a relationship with rapper, songwriter and producer King Los; Asiah Azante, married to Multi-Platinum recording artist, songwriter and producer Kid Ink; Nazanin Mandi, engaged to Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and producer Miguel; and newly single recording artist Alycia Bellamy.”
