Exclusive: Jason Derulo Talks Getting ‘Naked,’ Jordin Sparks, & More

Pinned: Posts Resume As Normal Below

Pop maestro Jason Derulo delved into risqué R&B territory recently with the release of the video for new song ‘Naked.’

A homage of sorts to D’Angelo’s iconic ‘Untitled’ visual, the clip saw the singer strip off alongside label-mate K. Michelle as he introduced the masses to a fresh side of himself. Or should we say a few sides.

Eager to hear more, That Grape Juice’s Patrick sat down with the singer at his lavish home to discuss his new direction, upcoming mixtape, and ex Jordin Sparks – who he opens up about on ‘Naked.’

As ever, we ask the questions you really want answers to.

Similarly candid about the matter was Gabourey Sidibe, who we caught up with recently.

The actress, whose role in ‘Precious’ saw her become the 8th black female (ever) to be nominated for the Best Actress Oscar, vented her frustration but also seemed optimistic about the future.

Ten…long…years.

Indeed, it’s been a decade since talented songbird Tweet blessed the industry with a new project. And while such a lengthy spell away from the limelight (in an official capacity) would dissolve the strongest of fanbases, it’s made hers even more steadfast.  This feat is evidenced by the critical reception of her comeback single ‘Won’t Hurt Me’ (the kickoff release from her January 2016-due album ‘Charlene’).

In this candid interview with That Grape Juice, the soulful stunner talks her hiatus, the state of R&B, compromising her sound, her new album, and much more. As ever, we ask the questions you really want answers to.

‘Creed’ K.O’s Competition With $42 Million Debut / Michael B. Jordan Talks Exclusively To That Grape Juice

Award Winning Actor Talks To TGJ About Hit Movie

‘Creed’ dealt a dynamite blow to all box office projections this week.

The boxing flick, which continues the ‘Rocky’ legacy, capped off with a five-day domestic total of $42.6 million.

Impressive on a number of fronts, the figure is particularly noteworthy because it means the Michael B. Jordan film bests initial estimates ($35 million) by a considerable margin. What’s more, the sum sees the movie (which smartly co-stars Sylvester Stallone) become the most successful ‘Rocky’ movie launch of all-time – topping the $21 million debut of Stallone’s last stint as lead [2006’s ‘Rocky Balboa’].

With industry analysts predicting a $100 million eventual total for ‘Creed’ (which had a $35 million budget), its 29-year director Ryan Coogler and all involved have much to smile about.

That Grape Juice’s Megan Thomas caught up with Michael B. Jordan at the movie’s Los Angeles premiere. Watch above as he gushes about the role that’s set to blast his star into the stratosphere.
