had great hopes that her 2008 music release "This Kind of Love" would garner the same kind of success other albums -- such as Paul McCartney's "Memory Almost Full" -- had on Starbucks music label Hear Music.

Unfortunately, the pop star's latest hit the shelves just as the coffee chain announced it was streamlining its business operations, a move that included dumping its music label. Simon's album tanked, and now she is taking Starbucks to court, seeking $5 to $10 million in damages.
