Hilary Duff leaves Hollywoods Records for Universal Music Group

It’s kind of sad to us, when we think of the Hilary Duff story.

How she was on top with her hit TV series Lizzie McGuire, and her first studio album, 2003’s Metamorphosis, which sold 8 million worldwide. Also, her self-titled sophomore album which went double platinum in 2004, and the Most Wanted CD in 2005, which went double platinum as well.

Followed by that were sold-out concert tours, DVD’s, and movies!

She signed with Disney’s Hollywood Records, and as we mentioned before, she recently departed from the record company.

We all know that her 2007 Dignity album didn’t sell well, but it was her BEST album to date! With awesome songs like “Stranger,” “With Love,” “No Work, All Play,” and much more! Even though it was a great album, Hollywood Records decided not to promote it as much, and its said that they wont be promoting her upcoming Best of Hilary Duff album.

Reasons for her leaving are rumored to be that Hollywood wants her to go back to her bubblegum-pop music (circa Metamorphosis), and she refused to. Plus, not giving her a Dignity Concert Tour DVD. And, her and the record label weren’t agree with each other.

So, to get to the MAIN POINT, Hilary is expected to release a new album, hopefully next year, and on Amazon.com, it says that her label is UMG (Universal Music Group).

We so hope this is true!!! We love Hilary Duff music! She is like the originator/Queen of Disney music!

Hilary Duff @ Blessing In A Backpack

She’s a girl with a lot of heart to give and earlier tonight (Friday) actress Hilary Duff made an appearance at the Nina Footwear and Blessings In a Backpack event in New York City.  The program works to bring food and supplies to the less fortunate.

“I feel lucky enough to have a voice or a name that people might pay attention to,” said Duff.  “I think that people might not be aware that a couple neighborhoods away, kids aren’t having food on the weekends, and we just want people to be informed and to know what’s going on in their communities and to help if they can.”

Demi Lovato Wants to Follow the Footsteps of Hilary Duff!

The Camp Rock actress Demi Lovato, was recently interviewed by MTV News, and she talked about everything from Jonas Brothers, the tour, her new CD Don’t Forget, and all that stuff that we have been hearing for months now.

But, one thing she has stated (for the first) is that she wants to follow in the path of former Disney star, Lizzie McGuire’s Hilary Duff.

Demi told MTV News: “[She] has stayed a really good role model,” Lovato said. ”I mean, I’m sure she made mistakes, but you never saw them. I think it’s really cool that someone can grow up and continue to be looked up to by young girls.”

We agree with Demi, Hilary is a great role model…and she’s so beautiful!
