This former actress turned singer (Taylor Momsen) is probably B list overall, but in Europe she is pretty close to A list.
She can tour the world nonstop and sell places out.
She is someone, along with the band (“The Pretty Reckless”) that you want to see live.
They don’t sell a lot of records, but you want to see them.
This past week she went all in on choosing sides in an argument between a permanent A list band (“Soundgarden”) and the current nemesis (Vicky Karayiannis) of the band. She chose the band.
She made it perfectly clear on social media who she was choosing.
She is going to be involved in the litigation because she had all those conversations with the deceased singer and he always referred to the music he was recording as the band’s new album, or the band’s new music.
It was never a solo thing and she is willing to go to court to tell that to the world.
Chris Cornell’s Widow Sues Soundgarden, Claims Band Has Withheld ‘Thousands’ in Royalties
Vicky Cornell, the wife of late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, is taking legal action against the band.
Vicky is alleging that the group and their business manager have “conspired to wrongfully withhold hundreds of thousands of dollars” in royalties from her and their two children, according to a filed complaint obtained by PEOPLE. She also claims that the group have attempted to “strong-arm” his estate into turning over seven recordings, which were made before Cornell’s death in 2017.
Vicky claims in the complaint that the seven tracks solely feature Chris’ voice and were written by him alone, and that they are the rightful property of both her and their children.
In the complaint, Vicky claimed that she had offered to share the recordings with the band “provided that they were released in a way that would respect her late husband’s legacy,” but the band refused, claiming that the songs belonged to them. She has also alleged that the members of the group have “menaced” their family “with false media statements.” – Source
