Last year’s ‘Born This Way’ catapulted Lady GaGa from superstar to megastar; a feat made all the more remarkable when considering her humble three years in the limelight.

Naturally, then, it’s a given that anticipation for the paw purveyor’s 4th studio album is at fever-pitch.

Hence, it’s little wonder why the singer’s army of Monsters are rejoicing at the star’s apparent reveal of the LP’s title, ‘ARTPOP’. Taking to her aptly titled social network, LittleMonsters.com, the 26 year old shared the shot above with the message:

“New ink new album”

What’s more, it’s not the only shots posted with the supposed album title featured. Flip the hood for more…

One achieved their fame by way of talent and dedication, while the other garnered hers doing the exact opposite. Nonetheless, the stars have aligned Oprah and Rihanna together for the latest episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.

Set to air on OWN on August 19th, filming for the hotly anticipated episode continued in Ms. Fenty’s homeland of Barbados today, where she was spotting driving the billionaire TV host around her locale.

Say what we will about Rih, her “rise” has been as compelling as it’s been dismaying. Hence, we’ll certainly be tuning in to see her speak on it. Here’s hoping O re-engages with the brand of interviewing that catapulted her to the lofty status she enjoys today with this one, instead of the walk-in-the-park treatment she gave the Kardashian‘s earlier this year.

Cop a gander of Kelly Rowland.

The Destiny’s Child graduate (and solo Grammy winner) looks all sorts of lush in the latest promotional shot for TW Steel.

As previously announced, the 31 year old has been tapped to serve as the Brand Ambassador for the firm’s luxury line of watches.

On a musical tip, Ms. Kelly is gearing up to shoot the video for hot new single ‘Ice’. We can’t wait!

In an article posted by Billboard Biz last month billed ‘UK Album Sales Drop By 13%’, the unfortunate but unsurprising news that the rate of LPs sold in the UK had reached record breaking lows hit music lovers all too hard.

Intensified even further with a subsequent report which revealed ‘old releases’ were currently outselling their new counterparts for the first time in US chart history, it’s safe to say that the industry has seen far better days- as it currently  experiences its worst.

Indeed, despite commercial highs scored by Adele, Drake, Lil Wayne  and Pop deity Lady GaGa, very little can be done to disguise the desperate state many a label find itself in as they struggle to convince the buying public their acts are worth…buying.

So, ever eager to catch your take on matters like these, That Grape Juice asks you:

Can Album Sales Be Saved?

and…

What do you think the labels are doing wrong when it comes to pushing them?

Weigh in below…

With a new LP on the way and the genius that was ‘Born This Way’ behind her, it seems Lady GaGa is the middle of a major branding overhaul.

For, as any of her die hard fans will have noticed, the starlet seems to be softening her public image in time for what many believe will be an upbeat new album.

Not sure what we mean?

Well, peep the romantic snap of the Grammy winning star in the arms of close friend Taylor Kinney above.

Surfacing online some hours ago, the pic sees the talented pair enjoying an intimate moment- a rarity, considering GaGa’s oft guarded stance on her personal life.

Your thoughts?

Roc Nation are not playing with the handling of their newest star, Rita Ora.

A rarity for a new act, the 22 year old’s debut LP ‘ORA’ is being “worked” on a global scale. Hence in borrowing from her success on home soil, Ora’s chart-topping UK single ‘R.I.P’ is heading Stateside.

Details after the jump…
