Another day, another milestone for budding pop diva Ariana Grande.

After topping Billboard 200 with two albums over the span of a year, Grande is still hot on the promo trail showing off her oft-praised chops via many-an-outlet – most notably the 40th season premiere episode of ‘SNL.’

Rocking the Chris Pratt-hosted affair with a piano laced version of her hit ‘Break Free,’ the pint-sized powerhouse then broke out into an energetic take on the top 10 tune.

Did You Miss It?: Jason Derulo Confirms Split With Jordin Sparks

sparksredbook1 Did You Miss It?:  Jason Derulo Confirms Split With Jordin Sparks

Didn’t they almost have it all?

While fans of Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose are still reeling from news of their divorce proceedings, elsewhere on the music spectrum one of pop’s cutest couples – Jason Derulo & Jordin Sparks – are reportedly no longer seeing sparks in their once hot romance as multiple sources have indicated that the singers are splitsville.

Despite just appearing together at last month’s MTV Video Music Awards, the rumor mill was running over with word that the duo were done.  Initially avoiding the topic all together, it appears the ‘Marry Me’ maestro has added fuel to the fire by indirectly confirming that Jordin won’t be becoming Mrs. Desrouleaux any time soon.

Cover Star: Alvester Martin’s Moving ‘Make It To Me’ Cover (Sam Smith)

Alvester Martin is a name you should get used to hearing.

The R&B crooner may have seen his ever-talented dancing shoes slide right next to the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, and more over the course of his career, but now his feet are guiding him center stage.

In a recent cover Martin’s soulful voice can be heard blessing fellow crooner Sam Smith‘s ‘Make It To Me.’ Adding in an ever-timely twist of Janet Jackson‘s ‘Come Back To Me’ (as this week marks the 25th anniversary of the release of its parent album ‘Rhythm Nation 1814′), press play below and tell us if he does the cuts justice:

Showcasing a sincerity oft lost in the everyday cover, Martin’s delivery of ‘Make It To Me’ made us believe every word he said.

Never succumbing to the urge to “overdo it” with embellishments, the simplicity of Alvester’s arrangement complimented that of the original singers’ without sounding as if he was trying to imitate.

We go for “sangers” who recognize singing is not just a showcase of the instrument, but also how it’s handled and manipulated.  Bravo Alvester for making this a “must hear”!

Rickey Smiley & ‘Queens Of Comedy’ Clap Back At Sheryl Underwood Claims Of Mistreatment

Smiley Slams The Comic Diva For Her Own "Shady" Dealings

Sheryl underwood the talk rickey smiley queens of comedy Rickey Smiley & Queens Of Comedy Clap Back At Sheryl Underwood Claims Of Mistreatment

Well, that was fast.

It’s only been a day since comedienne/CBS ‘The Talk’ star Sheryl Underwood took the net by storm for alleging that she turned down an offer to participate in the hit stand-up film ‘Queens of Comedy’ due to its stars Sommore, Laura Hayes, and Adele Givens bad-mouthing her on a conference call.  But, it looks like a day was all that was needed for claws and clap backs to come out.

As previously reported, Underwood’s confession brought with it a gripping message of inspiration and perseverance against the odds.  Some comedians, namely Givens, Hayes, and Rickey Smiley, think Sheryl may be the one who needs to get a grip.

Each taking to public platforms to offer their 2 cents to the damning recount, the three have jointly fanned an already stable fire.  We see now it’s no laughing matter with these entertainers:

TGJ Replay: Janet Jackson – ‘Rhythm Nation 1814′

rhythm nation janet jackson thatgrapejuice TGJ Replay:  Janet Jackson   Rhythm Nation 1814

After a lengthy break on the bench, ‘TGJ Replay’ is back!

Designed much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ features, ‘Replay’ is That Grape Juice‘s newest retrospective segment – a written quest, if you will, to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase entire albums (and eras) from a library of pop and Urban pop music hits.  As this week marks the 25th anniversary of the release of ‘Rhythm Nation’ – the now legendary fourth album from pop superstar Janet Jackson, we are set to deliver our biggest ‘Replay’ yet in homage to the Queen.

It all awaits below:
