Watch: Brandy Talks Beyonce Comparisons

d128ca62b7a664e30acf9ccce56e03fc Watch:  Brandy Talks Beyonce Comparisons

When you are two of the most respected vocal divas of your generation, it is difficult to evade comparison.  Such has been the case with most artists who, despite varying levels of similarities, find themselves in the same age or genre bracket with stars like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna.

Such comparison has garnered its fair of protest from pop’s other elite vocalists and you can now add ‘Long Distance’ diva Brandy to that long list.  History may have seen Miss Norwood make waves almost a decade before many of her comparatives, but she still finds her name listed versus some of the noughties reigning diva set.  Speaking with our friends over at, B-Rocka runs down the notion of ‘stan wars’ and rivalries between herself and Monica, among others mentioned.

Hot Shot: Beyonce Strikes Pose For ‘Pulse’ Summer Edition

beyonce pulse summer e1327012314553 Hot Shot: Beyonce Strikes Pose For Pulse Summer Edition

As a staple on the Forbes highest earning list, it goes without saying that ‘idle’ isn’t a word Beyonce is familiar with.

Hence, it’s little surprise that as she cradles her newborn, the promotional campaign for her new fragrance is set to be cranked into overdrive.

Christened ‘Pulse: Summer Edition’, the latest in the singer’s ever-growing range of scents arrives in stores in a matter of months. A sure-fire means, no doubt, of ensuring she remains “present” while M.I.A.

Yet, another testament to the well-oiled machine which powers her movement. More power to her.

Grape Mail: “Check Out My Beyonce Tattoos”

IMG 4194 Grape Mail: Check Out My Beyonce Tattoos

There’s dedication, and there’s dedication. Case point, That Grape Juice reader and devoted Beyonce fan Colyn, who exhibits his love for the superstar in the most visual of ways.

Peep his letter and ink work below…


Hey Sam,

After reading That Grape Juice for a long time, I know you all are fans of Beyonce.  What am doing is having a sleeve tattoo done to celebrate her achievements.

So people are gonna hate the reason why I am having it done. I am 27, and for the last 14 years I have followed Destiny’s Child. And then as the group split, I focused on Beyonce. So half of my life I have supported Beyonce. When things have been extremely difficult for me, I always knew I can get lost in a world of her music.

I have had the pleasure of meeting DC and Bey once on many occasions; and at the last ever DC gig in Vancouver Beyonce picked me from the audience and sang Cater 2 U to me.

I was hoping that you may be able to showcase my tattoos, as I want the world to see firstly I am not a stalker or some crazed fan. It’s just that I wanted to have something on my body that has helped me out with so much pain in my youth .

Also I was at the ‘Night with Beyonce’ recording. I was the second fan to ask her a question, but it end up on the cutting room floor lol

Hope you like and will look forward to hearing from you soon.

The B Is from the 4 era and added a crown to it to make it King B.

The bumble bee, as you can recognize, was on the Deja Vu single and was included for promotional use during the Sasha Fierce era.

The signature is from the very first signed picture i got of her when Destiny’s Child were performing at Sheffield Arena on their Survivor tour.

The Gramophone is to represent the 16 Grammys Beyonce has.

The roman numeral is Beyonce’s birth date. 9-4-81

And i have just had done a Beyonce silhouette which is from the back page of the I Am…Sasha Fierce tour programme.

Watch: Ne-Yo Drops By Jimmy Kimmel

neyo Watch:  Ne Yo Drops By Jimmy Kimmel

‘Stay With Me’ singer Ne-Yo has certainly stayed low-key as of late months after swapping mixtape plans with the preparation of a full LP.  Despite generating moderate buzz for his Trey Songz-assisted single ‘The Way You Move’, the R&B crooner has remained fairly mute on the musical tip since the under-performance of 2010′s ‘Libra Scale’.

Albeit reportedly readying his return to radio later this year, Ne-Yo starts off his 2012 with his cinematic debut in the George Lucas-directed ‘Red Tails’.  The semi-biographical film, boasting an all-star cast featuring Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding, Jr., sees the crooner take flight in new ways as the group have joined to depict the famous story of the Tuskeegee Airmen.

Already jetting up the promotional trail for ‘Tails’, last night saw the singer drop by Jimmy Kimmel Live to give fans a few sneak peeks of the film.  Also, chatting it up with BET, watch this clip and find out what Ne-Yo had to say about divas Beyonce, Celine Dion, and Mary J.
