Congratulations are most certainly in order for MIA.
For, fresh off the release of her online smash ‘Bad Girls’, she has inked a deal with Jay Z‘s Roc Nation.
As the First Lady of the free world, Michelle Obama‘s time in the White House has been fruitful to say the very least.
From launching the ‘Let’s Move’ health initiative to her ongoing but oft overlooked support of military families, Mrs. Obama is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest role models.
Now, in an interview with People Magazine, she has expressed her admiration for fellow opinion leader Beyonce.
Last week, two years after it kicked off, Lil Kim‘s ‘beef’ with Nicki Minaj reached all new heights during an interview with Power 105.1’s ‘The Breakfast Club‘.
In the interview, Kim claimed that after making plans to work with Minaj’s label ‘Young Money’, she was cut off by the group per Nicki’s request and was forced to watch its CEO Birdman fashion the MC after her, initially by way of look.
However, according to the ‘How Many Licks’ belle, the plagiarizing didn’t end there. For, in a truly sensational claim, she accused Birdman of feeding Minaj ideas Kim had created and shared with him before her ‘dismissal’.
Now he has hit back at her by way of MTV’s RapFix.

Aged just 16, newcomer Little Nikki is drumming up quite the buzz. And with good reason.
The West Londoner posits a flavoursome mix of Synth-Pop and British Grime, a blend best showcased on her aptly titled intro single ‘Intro Intro’.
A fact which shouldn’t be diluted though is Nikk’s is ability to be “genre chameleon”; possessing the uncanny talent of dabbling in various sounds, while making them her own. It’s a skill no doubt attributable to her wealth of talent – which also sees her pen her own songs.
Hailed as “Rihanna meets Azaelia Banks”, this young talent (who has toured with Justin Bieber) has many industry folk raving. Does she have you doing the same, though? Check out the clip above and let us know what you think below!
It’s certainly been a long road for crooner Phillip Phillips. Narrowed down from thousands of contestants, the young singer bested 16-year-old powerhouse vocalist Jessica Sanchez to be named 2012’s American Idol. With a record setting 132 million votes between the two of them, it was ultimately the 21-year-old guitarist that took the prize.
While we look forward to music from both of the blossoming vocalists, we at That Grape Juice extend our congratulations to Mr. Phillips for being crowned this year’s American Idol!
