Following a majorly successful stint in London’s West End adaptation of ‘Chicago’, Michelle Williams will be reprising the lead role of Roxie Hart in the Broadway adaptation, it has been announced.
The Destiny’s Child alum steps into Roxie’s famed stilleto’s, which were recently vacated by Ashley Simpson-Wentz, and will star in the production from February 8th to March 28th. Williams’ tenure in ‘Chicago’ comes after previous roles in ‘Aida’ and ‘The Colour Purple’.
A few weeks ago ThatGrapeJuice was the first to show you an exclusive pic from singer Michelle Williams’ ‘Alter Ego’ photoshoot. Now we have the pleasure of presenting the entire production which was crafted by famed photographer Derek Blanks. Fierce!
Check out this new remix of Destiny’s Child alumni Michelle Williams’ ‘Sick of It’, a bonus track from her critically acclaimed ‘Unexpected’ LP. While Michelle’s more recent efforts have had a very heavy Dance/Euro-Pop feel to them, the immensely talented songstress switches things up here, with what, in essence, is a Pop/Rock cut, which interestingly manages to compliment her soulful vocals. It’s quite refreshing to hear a remix which isn’t the typical DJ/Club mix. I like…I like a lot.

Despite the epic fail that was their ‘Forever In A Day’ album (which was actually pretty good), Day26 continue to press ahead with the project – today releasing the video for ‘So Good’. Definitely one for the grown folk, this serves as one of their better efforts. I’m sure the ladies will love this one.
That said, Bad Boy really are keeping these boys on a recession budget with these vids. We are in a visual age, and it’s gonna take more than these samey ‘concept’ clips, in which next to nothing is happening, to garner any interest anyone beyond their fan-base – who in total don’t seem to be able to save the guys from the terrible sales they’ve been having. It’s so sad, as all four of these guys are so talented. Yet, if things don’t change with how they are handled, they’ll become casualties of the industry. Here’s hoping the latter doesn’t become a reality.
Tidbit: Does anyone else notice how unless ‘Making The Band’ is airing, you never see or hear from these guys? SMH…
