Charlie Puth discusses his time at the brief-lived record company eleveneleven in response to Greyson Chance’s comments that he was “totally abandoned” by the record label owned by Ellen DeGeneres.
Charlie Puth is discussing what he claims to have learned from his time working for the eleveneleven record company owned by Ellen DeGeneres.
The Grammy Award nominee, who is 30 years old, stated that after recording his first EP, he “didn’t hear from anybody” at the now-defunct label. This came after Greyson Chance’s alleged experience with a situation that was similar.
Puth provided an explanation that included the phrase, “We both have distinct experiences, me vs Greyson. On the other hand, I do agree with him that nobody was really there, at least not after the production of my very first demo EP.
After then, I didn’t really hear from anybody else at all. Everyone who had been in the room vanished without a trace, and it’s impossible to pin the disappearance of those individuals on just one individual.”
The claims of Greyson Chance. As His Mentor, Ellen DeGeneres Was Described as Being ‘Insanely Manipulative’ and ‘Opportunistic.’
After having much success with their YouTube channel that they launched in 2009, he and Emily Luther were able to negotiate a recording contract with Ellen DeGeneres’ eleveneleven after she saw their rendition of Adele’s “Someone Like You.”
Puth remarked that he is not concerned about those early tracks going unpublished since he was still relatively inexperienced as a musician at the time.
And despite the fact that the Charlie musician, who is 25 years old, had a similar experience with the company as Chance, he added that he got along good with Ellen DeGeneres: “People characterize Ellen as nasty. That’s not anything that’s ever happened to me. Maybe she likes me.”
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Chance spoke to an earlier incident in which he remembered being “totally abandoned” by DeGeneres and the company when he joined with them in 2010.
He said that she gave the impression of being “controlling” until he began to underperform, at which point DeGeneres became more aloof, and she ultimately dropped him.
Chance said, “I’ve never encountered someone more deceptive, more self-centered, and more brazenly opportunistic than her.”
A source close to the Ellen DeGeneres Show staff said that they “went above and beyond to help set him up for success,” but unfortunately, in the business world, things don’t always work out as planned, and his career did not take off.
The Palladium musician, who signed after his version of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” went viral, subsequently confessed in a TikTok that he is still “grateful for her giving me a start.”
“But I’m more glad for myself for the occasions when I was dropped and everything went wrong when I was a child,” he continued. “Those are the times that have shaped me into the person I am today.”
