Keep it locked on That Grape Juice for the performances when she delivers them next week.

R&B trier Teairra Mari is back!

The ever-persistent vixen lives up to the latter in the video for her latest single ‘U Did That’.

Featuring the MC on the lips of many, 2 Chainz, the cut serves as the first release from the 24 year year old’s new deal with hitmaker Rico Love‘s Division 1 imprint.
Can the song and video propel Mari beyond that nagging “former Princess of the Roc” tag? The answer awaits after the jump…


Every now and again, a song comes along and literally forces you to look up and pay attention.

Well today that happened over here at TGJ headquarters, thanks to Def Jam’s Luke James.

Without any delay, get into his new jam ‘Powerless‘ ,below…



I smell a follower… is that you?”

Ever since President Obama announced his support of same sex marriages, it seems those previously opposed to the issue have suddenly had a change of heart.

Take 50 Cent for one. Indeed, after joking about ‘shooting up a gay wedding’ in 2010, he has spoken out in support of same sex relationships, but challenges its supporters to provide evidence as to where it endorsed by any major religion.

His comments below…

Sadly, yesterday the world bid goodbye to music legend Donna Summer.

Branded the Queen of Disco, Summer reigned over charts at a time where very few women, especially those of color, earned the title ‘sex symbol’ while simultaneously maintaining a level of class that restrained her sexuality from defining her image…


If the last year has taught us anything about Rihanna, it is this:

1. She loves Italian food and 2. She seems to be allergic to garments (or too much of them).

For last night, in what is starting to become a habit, the model dined at  Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi with best friend Melissa, in Santa Monica.

This,weeks before she launches her Project Runway type TV show in the UK, by way of Sky Living.

The 2012 Billboard Music Awards may be merely days away, yet its list of performers continues to grow.

As reported here (and confirmed today), Tia Mowry (Melanie) and Pooch Hall (Derwin) of the hit BET sitcom ‘The Game’ have announced their departure from the beloved show on the heels of its renewal for a season 6.  Shocking fans and followers of the show alike, Mowry has made her rounds earlier today to give insight into her decision to leave the show.

Her co-stars have been mums on the topic…until now.  Wendy Racquel Robinson, who portrays the slick tongued ‘momager’ Tasha Mack, gives her two cents on Tia and Pooch’s unexpected exits.  Press play above to get the skinny…

Although just gracing their April 2012 cover, it looks like Vogue magazine can’t get enough of ‘Enough’ actress/singer Jennifer Lopez.  Now guesting the mag’s June 2012 issue, the full spread of her earlier shoot with famed photographer Mario Testino is unveiled.  As ever, it’s safe to say the 42-year-old, mother-of-two is still turning heads like nobody’s business.

Get into the shots below (source):

Aside from making it rain on these heauxs on the fashion tip, Lopez, as revealed yesterday, is sitting pretty atop Forbes’ list of most powerful celebrities (with over $50 million earned in the last year alone).  Her love may not cost a thing, but everything else (it seems) is gonna cost a pretty penny.

Coming as a shocking announcement, Season 11 ‘American Idol’ frontrunner Joshua Ledet was given the axe moments ago after receiving the lowest number of votes, as revealed by tonight’s episode of the hit reality talent show.  Branded the ‘male Fantasia’ for his throaty growls, spirited melisma, and “church” stylings, the young vocalist was a shoo-in to win.  Now, Ledet’s dismissal (after a whopping 90 million votes) leaves powerhouse teen Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips to duke it out for the ultimate prize in next week’s finale.

Boasting performances from Jason Derulo, Rihanna, and more, next week’s finale is shaping up to be a MUST SEE!  Until then, we will press play on some of Ledet’s awesome performances from week’s past.  Here’s wishing him the best:
