Rising to fame at the turn of the millennium as the poster child for Urban Pop, P!nk surprised many a critic when she made the transition from Pop Princess to Pop Rock riot.

Despite enjoying her first US #1 with ‘Lady Marmalade‘ in 2001, the singer- believe it or not- was unable to match the feat until seven years later with ‘So What’.

Now she has addressed her popularity- or lack of it- in the United States and how touring served to counteract any commercial shortcomings she faced in the market.

Hot Shot: Katy Perry Glows Ginger For L’Officiel

Cop a gander of Pop titan Katy Perry.

The star ditches her candy-coloured look for a more serene appearance on the cover of L’Officiel‘s latest issue. Serving “face” aplenty, the ‘California Gurls’ singer also swapped her black do’ for ginger in the name of high-fashion. Looking good.

******

Aesthetic aside, we’re uber keen to see what the former Mrs. Brand delivers with he third studio album. Indeed, with the her long-stretching ‘Teenage Dream’ era all but a wrap, attention naturally turns to whether she’ll be able to top it – especially with news that the man that helmed most of her hits –Dr Luke– cannot work on the project for contractual reasons.

Time will tell, ay?

Cover Star: Sarai Sings Kelly Rowland’s ‘Ice’

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star is soulful songbird Sarai. Watch as the US native take on Kelly Rowland‘s latest single ‘Ice’ below:

Yes, yes, yes! Sarai smashed this.

A tricky song to sing (see: low register for verses, higher for chorus), not only did she “handle” it well, she mixed and moulded it into something of her own. Those adlibs were off the Richter! Great performance.

For more on Sarai, check out her Youtube page.

Tracee Ellis Ross Talks ‘Reed Between the Lines’ & Why She Quit

Much like ‘The Game’ switcheroos that left fans in the dark earlier this summer, many were shocked to learn that last week, Tracee Ellis Ross – lead star of BET‘s hit family comedy ‘Reed Between the Lines’ – made a very unexpected departure.  The show, recently renewed for its second season, was in gears to pick up where season 1 left off – chronicling love life of Ross’s character Dr. Carla Reed and husband Dr. Alex Reed (Malcolm Jamal Warner).

Initially mum on the topic, now Ross has taken to Essence.com to shed light on what caused her sudden departure:

“It was that BET hadn’t decided if they were picking up the show yet or not,” says Ross. “During that time when they didn’t know, I was offered a really amazing pilot for NBC, and BET graciously allowed me to go and do it. But it’s not because I wanted to leave.”

The former Girlfriends’ actress continued by saying:

“I love Reed Between the Lines, I believe in it. There is a chance I’ll go back, always. There’s nothing weird about it.”

No premiere date has been set for season 2 of the show.  It is, however, expected to be one of many filling out BET‘s highly anticipated 2013 lineup.
