Seven albums in seven years. Say what you will about Rihanna, her face and name have become omnipresent in music.
And while some hail this as Pop dominance, others argue it evidence enough that she’s not vacating the spotlight because she can’t. Indeed for many, the Bajan bombshell almost needs to stay in faces because she’d be forgotten if she didn’t. Debates, debates, debates. Amidst them, reports suggesting that the 25-year-old will take a year off have surfaced.
Faced with the possible reality of a spell without Fenty, That Grape Juice hit the streets of Hollywood to find out what the masses feel about the matter.

As one of music’s most enduring and iconic divas, it’s only natural that the mention of “Mariah Carey” evokes reactions of both the positive and not so positive persuasions. Indeed, it goes without saying that the 43-year-old superstar has become quite a polarizing figure in recent years.
With a headline-grabbing spot on American Idol secured and new material due this year, 2013 is set to feature a whole lot of Mimi – which got us thinking. After a 20 year plus career, what does “new” Mariah Carey means to a radically different music industry?
Yes, she’s a legend who’s done it all, has nothing to prove, so and so forth. Yet, in actively making a bid to remain relevant to the current music market, Carey is ultimately competing with the current crop of Pop divas. The Beyonce‘s, the Rihanna‘s, the GaGa‘s, and even the Nicki Minaj‘s. Don’t believe? Just ask her record label. For, at the end of the day, profit margins don’t recognize who is more of a dancer, who is more of a vocalist, and who has done did it all. In no uncertain terms, they recognize and reward whoever sold most.
In any case, with new Mimi on the horizon, That Grape Juice’s Patrick hit the streets of Hollywood to see what the masses think of Mimi currently and gauge what climate she can expect when her new project is rolled out.

The release and subsequent chart performance of Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Lotus’ has brought with it fresh debate about one of Pop’s most pronounced polarizers.
Indeed, while many warm to the star’s powerful voice and shameless “diva”, others have seemingly hung up their ‘Dirty’ chaps (as well as their support for the singer) – pledging allegiance instead to today’s crop of younger talent (see: Rihanna, Ke$ha, Katy Perry and co).
