Sadly, the late, great Whitney Houston is no longer with us. However, her legacy is being celebrated with the release of ‘Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances’ - which hit stores this week.

Pieced together by the diva’s longtime mentor Clive Davis, the retrospective set – which we’ve had on replay here at TGJ – is earning rave reviews from critics.

Whitney, of course, is tragically not here to bless the masses with more showcases of her iconic voice, however Davis called on one of today’s most gifted vocalists, Jennifer Hudson, to help him pay homage on the Today Show this morning.

The Oscar and Grammy winner was drafted in to perform the classic Nippy cut ‘One Moment In Time’.

Watch her soar after the jump…

Queen of Soul…And Shade: Aretha Franklin Weighs In On Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj…& Barack Obama

aretha franklin thatgrapejuice cissy 600x324 Queen of Soul...And Shade:  Aretha Franklin Weighs In On Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj...& Barack Obama

As her newest album, ‘Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics,’ is currently reigning over the R&B charts, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is hot on the promo trail in its support.

With a campaign of guest appearances plagued with lol-worthy moments (i.e. interview glitches, Cissy Houston‘s lack of interest in memorizing words, etc.), it seems Franklin has no intentions on slowing the good times from rolling.  Case in point?  Aunt Re sat down with The Wall Street Journal recently to discuss her new project and, as always, was asked to weigh in on today’s top crop of talent.  Her answers were…umm…interesting to say the least.

Tuck in below to see how the R&B legend feels about the likes of Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, and Nicki Minaj.  This, of course, came just days after Billboard.com interviewed her and quizzed her similarly.  Her comments on Beyonce and co. were…well…just as interesting. See what we mean below.

Bonus:  Did you miss Aretha weighing in on Cissy’s now meme-tastic performance on David Letterman?  Hear her thoughts on this as well:

‘What have you done for me lately?’ takes on new meaning after reports have surfaced that Grammy-winning pop icon Janet Jackson has been snubbed, yet again, from induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

With a four decade career that boasts over 100 million records sold and countless industry awards lining her shelves, Jackson reigns supreme as the second most decorated female artist of all time (second only to Whitney Houston -who was also shut out).  Apparently her efforts, which span across music and film, have yet to be enough to impress the academy who votes and helps decide who will be inducted into the prestigious institution.

But, it looks like she’s not the only one…
