That Grape Juice Interviews Misha B

Since erupting onto the scene during last year’s X Factor, multi-talented Mancunian Misha B has remained a fixture on the lips of many. A trend which looks set to continue as the 20 year old gears up to release her debut single ‘Home Run’ on July 15th.

We caught up with the budding star last week, chatting it up with her about her hotly anticipated album, working with Missy Elliott, “that” incident on the X Factor, Kelly Rowland‘s departure from the show, and a whole lot more.

As ever, we ask the questions you really want answers to…and answer them Misha does.

Exclusive: That Grape Juice Meets The ‘Empire Girls’

6f6577bbaf8e0894c8b7cf79f9a6546e Exclusive: That Grape Juice Meets The Empire Girls

A decade ago, accurate-or at least favorable representations of Latin Americans were an all too welcome Pop culture commonplace.

If it wasn’t ‘Taina‘ gracing our screens on Paramount’s Nickelodeon it was the fiery sounds of Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin, figureheads for what has now be known as ‘The Latin Explosion‘.

Today, the story isn’t quite the same.

For, while the likes of Pitbull continue to fly the flag for Latin American music overseas, the demographic remains both mis- and underrepresented on the small screen.

Until now.

Starring 3LW front woman Adrienne Bailon and 106 & Park host Julissa Bermudez, That Grape Juice is pleased to welcome the Style Network‘s  ‘Empire Girls’.

Friends for over a decade, the ‘Girls’ landed the show following requests by friends to allow cameras into their lives.

Bermudez told us:

I had fears about being on Reality TV- because it really puts you out there, but so many funny crazy things would happen to us and our friends would be like “where are the cameras?!”

However, if you were hoping for the table tossing, cat fighting that plagues a number of today’s shows, think again. According to Bailon, “Empire Girls is feel good TV, it focuses on us being strong independent women with real goals and aspirations“.

She went onto admit:

Of course there’s going to be drama, but it’s all real. None of it’s exaggerated for the cameras.

We’re both Latina, I was born in the New York and Julie was born in the Dominican Republic, but we both represent a huge demographic in the US, and that’s the second or third generation Latin American woman- and the show reflects that. 

Both of them declaring:

It won’t endorse the stereotypes.

Our story is about inspiration, it’s about hard work, determination and progress and you’ll definitely see that with both of us trying to each our seperate goals.

That Grape Juice Interviews Janet Jackson

janet jackson thatgrapejuice That Grape Juice Interviews Janet Jackson

Legendary. Iconic. Diva.

These are but a few of the terms oft employed to describe the incomparable Janet Jackson.

Alas, it was little surprise then to see the dizzy decibels a small New York crowd whipped up when the Pop royal made her first public appearance since the debut of her new svelte physique last Thursday (May 10th 2012). The youngest of the Jackson clan came to see friend and fashion photographer Marco Glaviano’s Supermodels gallery.

That Grape Juice was on hand and fortunate enough to briefly catch up with the megastar. Ever keen to ask the questions you really want answers to, we probed Janet about her upcoming music and film work, reuniting with Jimmy Jam, her Nutrisystem diet, and even some of her geeky-tendencies.

Check out our EXCLUSIVE interview with icon Janet Jackson after the jump!

That Grape Juice Interviews Mary Mary

Contemporary gospel duo Mary Mary have seen many titles precede their names. From ‘Grammy winning’ to ‘best-selling’ and even ‘ground breaking’, the Californian sister act have seen their musical wings span across multiple genres in the music industry.  A feat which has won the two-some about as much acclaim as it has criticism.

Nevertheless, the sisters – Erica and Tina – press on to enlarge their territory.  Most recently nabbing their own reality show on WeTV (aptly titled ‘Mary Mary’), fans get to a side of the ‘Shackles’ singers like never before.

Recently dishing on the hit series with our friends over at That Grape Juice TV, the soulful siblings chat about everything from the inspiration of the show, criticism from the haters, and even their thoughts on transitioning to R&B!

A great read indeed, get into it all by…
