50 Cent Plots Summertime Comeback With New LP

Remember when 50 Cent‘s music was inescapable on radio? Remember when 50 Cent was the biggest rapper in the game? Remember when 50 Cent was relevant to music? Think hard…

Since the early 00’s rap music has mutated to an unrecognizable Pop/Dance hybrid with only subtle traces of authentic Hip-Hop. It’s all about production, auto-tune, and a stuttered chorus. Can 50 Cent restore Hip-Hop’s integrity with his long-awaited fifth studio album? Only time will tell…

Still, read his plans after the jump and sound-off below.

Though it’s easy to forget, Rihanna and Beyonce have always been more than just chart rivals.

Sharing a common ‘mentor’ in Jay Z and a shared collaborator in ‘The Dream‘, it’s a wonder the pair are yet to spawn a duet, eight years after their introduction.

So now, That Grape Juice asks:

Would you welcome a collab between the pair?

And if so, what would you expect from it?

Hot Shots: Nicki Minaj Covers ‘Complex Magazine’

As a testament to her ever growing mainstream popularity, Pop music’s favorite rapper Nicki Minaj covers the the special 10th anniversary edition of Complex magazine.

The ‘Super Bass’ singer/rapper looks comedically wacky borrowing Storm‘s frazzled bob from X2 and wearing a black & white themed ensemble. It’s a mix of couture brilliance with elements of an epileptic shock motif. We love it!

Check out excerpts from Minaj’s latest feature and more shots after the jump and sound-off below.

Hot Shots: Ciara Switches It Up

R&B star Ciara is fully embracing her blonde bombshell status.

Taking to Twitter today, Epic Records‘ newest signee shared these modelesque snaps.

Sporting a modified “sweep”, the 26 year old looked all sorts of fierce.

That said, we are gonna need to see more of these “playful” shots coming from the recording studio, though. And that’s not jumping on the “she needs to stop posing and get back to work” bandwagon. No. For, I fully believe she and mentor LA Reid are  deliberately playing coy in somewhat of a “calm before the storm” setup. However, coming off her last outing, one has to question if she can go “go ghost” when shoppers went all sorts of “Casper” on her when ‘Basic Instinct’ dropped.

We feel she’s about to bring the heat. She and her team just needs to remind everyone of that too.

In any case, peep another pic below…

Simon Cowell: "I May Axe 'X Factor'"

Despite not suffering much of a ratings dip, the last series of The X Factor UK drew the harshest criticism in the show’s history.

Somewhat expected due to the all-new panel (which saw Kelly Rowland, Gary Barlow, and Tulisa Contostavlos join the melee), the media proceded to pelt each week with a succession of anti-X Factor stories.

A practice which dented both the show’s reputation and the ego of creator Simon Cowell – who left his role as a judge in 2010 to  focus on the US version.

And though still one of Britain’s most-watched entities, Cowell has this week gone on record to tease axing the show, while it’s ahead. The 52 year old is apparently so far gone with his stance that he’s already conceptualised a replacement should the forthcoming 9th season suffer further decline:

Via Digital Spy

Speaking at the press launch of Britain’s Got Talent, Cowell said:

“In a year’s time we might say, ‘Right, that’s the end of The X Factor. Let’s start something new. I’d rather fall off the cliff on numbers than deteriorate slowly.

We have something in development which could replace The X Factor. Most things in music, fashion or TV tend to be across a ten-year period.

The great test of success is if you can transcend a decade. I believe we can do it again if we’re prepared to be brave.”

Granted the blatant manipulation and soap opera antics became tiresome, we feel there’s some mileage left yet in the show. However,  this is only on the basis that plans to “tear up the rule book” come to fruition. Supposed changes include scrapping themed weeks, adding celeb mentors (Idol-style) and allowing acts to sing their own songs. Now, all they need to do is bin Tulisa and Louis and we’d be off to a great start!

Whoa mama!

Beyonce may be glowing in her embrace of motherhood after the birth of daughter Blue Ivy, but today saw the ‘End of Time’ beauty joined by the two ladies she calls ‘mom’ – Tina Knowles and mother-in-law Gloria Carter.  Stepping out today in a stunning blue, form fitting number, the hitmaker and fam were on hand at a New York City fundraiser for the Obama re-election campaign.

As ever, the singer’s return to form post-Blue is becoming more evident and was greeted with much fanfare after the announcement of her forthcoming return to stage.  Until the Queen Bey slays lessers again, get into these snaps of she and Blue’s proud grandparents below (thanks to Rap-Up):
