PLEASE READ - Disappointing that "journalist" Christine Sams has trivialised important GLBTI issues regarding coming out from an exclusive interview we gave her about my new album release and signing with ABC Music. What I thought was a great 20min interview today, has now turned into an amateur gossip piece. For a very short amount of time she brought up the topic of "gay issues", which I was reluctant to speak about, and now my hesitation has been substantiated. As much as I stand by most of what I said, the headline "'Coming Out' as gay a 'bizarre concept' says Callea" is cheap and tabloid like and the article was never meant to be about these important issues. It's a shame, especially over Mardi Gras weekend that Christine and her editor have decided to take this angle, perhaps to grab their own cheap headlines, but I refuse to be a pawn in their game and I know readers are smarter than this. I would caution any artist in ever giving over to this so called journalist.
So, to do Christine's job for her, I'm excited that my new Album "Thirty" is being released through my new record company ABC Music, distributed by Universal Music on 26th April. More detail on the album to come...

Exciting times ahead ACOF!

Lots of love
Anth

Wow this should have been an article that all your fans were excited about reading, announcing a new album and record label. :D The fact that you gave them an exclusive and this wasn't even mentioned is absolutely ridiculous. I am so sorry Anthony that she has ruined this exciting time for you (and for us) and that it doesn't put you off doing more interviews leading up to the release. All the best. Can't wait to hear more about "Thirty" :thumbsup:

Have sent the journalist and SMH a message.

Thanks for her twitter address JoJo.

People need to let them know that this sort of stuff is not on.

Thanks Anth for finding time to come on the forum and letting us know what is going on.

I'm so excited that your new album is coming out. I can't wait until 26th April.

Don't worry about the article that Christine wrote your fans will love you no matter what.

But it was a very shitty thing to do there was nothing about the album when that is what the article should have been about the exciting time for you releasing your third album.

I know that all of us on the forum are so excited about your third album.

Your Loving Fan Vicki xxxxx

Very frustrating when some sections of the media are like this - as always, let the music do the talking Anth!
