Madonna’s ‘Masterpiece’ Bests Mary J. For ‘Best Song’ At Golden Globes

Looks like ‘Lucky Star’ singer Madonna‘s 2012 is already starting off on the right note. Despite mixed reviews for her directorial effort ‘W.E.’, Madge’s musical contribution to the film, ‘Masterpiece’, nabbed ‘Best Original Song’ at tonight’s Golden Globe ceremony (but the film later lost ‘Best Original Score’). Going head to head with fellow music monarch Mary J. Blige, for ‘The Living Proof’ from ‘The Help’, the win marks Madonna’s second Golden Globe  – the first being for ‘Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical’ in the 1996 musical ‘Evita’.

Reportedly putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album ‘MDNA’, this victory certainly highlights a week that has seen her Madgesty in headlines for less flattering circumstances (see: digs at Lady Gaga, Janet Jackson).  Fans of the diva will next see her on ‘The Tonight Show’ with Jay Leno continuing her promo rounds for the movie and upcoming album.

Until then get into this video of her acceptance speech and red carpet pics:

The visit comes shortly after the Grammy winner reportedly lent some ‘mommy advice’ to former ‘Dreamgirls’ co-star Beyonce.  As JHud recently revealed she was hoping to soon add a little girl to her growing family (joining 2-year-old son David Otunga, Jr.), she also took to US Weekly to share a few words for new-mommy Bey.

Quote of the Day: Mariah Carey Remarks On Kelly Rowland’s Tribute To Her

When news broke of Kelly Rowland being chosen to tribute Mariah Carey at last night’s BET Honors, fans and critics alike had plenty to say.

However, amidst the expected debate, there’s one person who Rowland’s performance was of particular importance to – Mariah herself.

The songbird hand-picked the ‘Motivation’ singer to perform her 1995 classic ‘Fantasy’. And while the masses will have to wait until February 13th to see how the Destiny’s Child alum fared, 41 year old Mimi has given her two cents on how Ms. Kelly held up.

From The Vault: Pink – ‘Most Girls’

Before Pink the lit up the Pop-Rock arena, Ms. Alicia Moore served as one of R&B’s most promising talents.

From The Vault this week journey’s back to the star’s second ever single, ‘Most Girls’.

Penned by the one and only Babyface, ”Girls’ was the most successful single to be lifted from Pink’s 2000 stellar debut, ‘Can’t Take Me Home’, peaking at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, #5 on the UK Official Singles Chart and reaching the top of the Australian ARIA Charts.

The cut’s accompanying visual was an MTV-favorite, cementing her “no-nonsense” character and showcasing her oft-underrated ability as a choreographed performer. Edgy, gutsy, and unapologetic, the video embodies all that we’ve come to love of this (still) soulful songstress.

And, although chances are slim to none, how exciting would it be to see Pink dabble in R&B again – even if for one song only? The raspy nature of her voice lends itself so well to such style; making it such a shame she abandoned it altogether. Still, whatever the genre, the unique package she presents both vocally and image-wise, make her one of popular music’s most compelling artists.

Bring on album #6!

Showdown: Who’s the Ultimate Diva?


Diva. A word, much like ‘flop’, ‘epic’, and ‘underrated’, that has, in years of late, seen itself overused and overextended to any chick who ever owned an ounce of relevancy. But, before it was a household term, there were a select few who denoted ‘diva’ effortlessly, helping to turn the term into the epitome of estrogenic swag that it is today. And while every genre has its set of leading ladies, there are some whose range defied limits – unable to be captured by any musical mode. In such, they captured the hearts of legions of fans and earned the title ‘diva’ by merit and not self-christening.

The divine 9 (plus 1…) – Aretha, Celine, Diana, Janet, Madonna, Mariah, Patti, Tina, and Whitney need no introduction. By mention of mononym alone, these musical monarchs inspire applause. So, in one of our most epic showdowns yet, we turn to you – That Grape Juice faithful – to tell us who dominates the diva domain?

In areas of performance, fashion, and overall influence, cast your vote for the ultimate as the Pop elite faceoff after the jump. They paved the way and set the bar for the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and more to glide their heels across, but they’re still the few your faves are still trying to be…

What Should Beyonce Do Next? That Grape Juice Weigh In!

The arrival of Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s bundle of joy, Blue Ivy, has dominated headlines since the singer gave birth exactly a week ago.

However, along with the hoopla that comes with celebrity baby births, has been much debate about just what the ‘Single Ladies’ singer should do next.

Naturally, the assumption is that a career hiatus is imminent. Yet, the 30 year old boasts a work-ethic like no other – making an “elongated break” unlikely. What’s more, her last album ‘4’ has – for all its Platinum selling success – not performed as well as previous efforts. Ultimately leaving the star with something to prove – commercially.

Hit ‘PLAY’ to watch us probe ‘What Should Beyonce Do Next’ and be sure to let us know what YOU think!
