Oprah Winfrey‘s ‘OWN‘ has seen quite a turnaround in ratings since its troubled debut.  Rocking ratings with hit series like ‘Oprah’s Master Class’, ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’, and ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’, O is looking to continue her good streak by introducing new reality segments – namely ‘Life With LaToya’.

Yes, indeed we are talking about LaToya Jackson.  The Jackson-family black sheep has seen her career overcast by a number of misfortunes including poor album sales, poor performances, and poor public reception.  Jackson is looking to change that however by taking control (no pun intended) and center stage – for once not at the expense of a sibling.

Set to debut Saturday, April 13th at 10:30 pm ET on OWN, get into its trailer above and tell us your thoughts?

While this may be hard to believe, we’ve finally found a performance pulled from Rihanna‘s first ‘Diamonds‘ outing that sees her deliver a decent vocal.

Channeling her inner Islander, the Grammy winning belle took the grand stage to perform the Elijah Blake penned jam ‘No Love Allowed’, packing the power and conviction other performances from the show lacked.

Ever keen to broaden our musical scope, recent months have seen That Grape Juice venture into a number of new musical landscapes including, most recently, gospel.

Spearheaded by well-received interviews with gospel singers Joshua Rogers, Dorinda Clark Cole, Israel Houghton, and more, TGJ is now offering readers ‘The Overflow’ – a collection of the top gospel-themed news stories from the week.

Tuck in below for the latest news on Alexis Spight, Donald Lawrence, Hezekiah Walker, and Jonathan Nelson


Just one week separates Justin Timberlake fans from the release of his third studio album ‘The 20/20 Experience’. And while the hotly anticipated set serves as one of the year’s biggest Pop releases, Timberlake is going all out on the promotional front. His latest stop? NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live’.

Joined by Jay-Z, the former Nsync-er  performed lead single ‘Suit & Tie’ and UK#1 ‘Mirrors’.

Watch JT and Jay-Z in action below…


Nicole Scherzinger is hot on the promo trail for new single ‘Boomerang’.

The former Pussycat Doll’s push for the track’s UK release has included a number of high-profile TV spots, an interview right here on That Grape Juice, and a turn on The Jonathan Ross Show tonight.

Check out her performance of ‘Boomerang’ below, where a hilarious sit-down with funny-man Ross also awaits…


Soul-filled songbird Chrisette Michele kicks off her ‘Better’ album campaign with the video for the project’s lead single ‘A Couple Of Forevers’.

Unwrapped moments ago, the romantic clip was shot by noted photographer Derek Blanks – which goes some way to explain the video’s lush visuals.

With the April 30th release of ‘Better’ inching nearer, this should serve as a tasty appetizer for the set which features Wale, Musiq Soulchild, and 2 Chainz.


Love her or hate, Lil Kim‘s impact on Rap’s elevation to mainstream status is undeniable. However, unlike her heir apparent Nicki Minaj, the pint sized icon found it hard to function as a productive businesswoman without Diddy’s guidance- watching her once lucrative brand regress when it should have moved forward.

Now, in marking yet another legal woe for Kim, she has reportedly filed a lawsuit against her own lawyer this week- one year after it emerged she owed a total of 1 million dollars to the US Government after failing to pay her taxes for over a decade.

As far as her mid tempos go, Rihanna rarely disappoints when it comes to performing live.

However, when the contralto is forced to deliver live renditions of her upbeat cuts, it’s safe to say the standard is 50 shades of nay.

Pancake flat and occasionally coarse, it’s a wonder the good people of Buffalo decided to put themselves through this torture when they purchased tickets to her ‘Diamonds World Tour’, launched in fresh aid of her #1 album ‘Unapologetic’.

Peep the ‘Instagram’ Queen in all her glory- at your own risk- below…


With 2,348,000 units worldwide in the space of four months, it’s safe to say Bruno Mars stands as one of Pop’s strongest commercial contributors.

However, if you’re one of the few that doesn’t own the album, we’d say it’s high time you got into bed with one its sweetest jams, ‘Treasure‘ produced by ‘The Smeezingtons’.

While it could have benefitted with a set of euphoric belts in its final hook, it’s easily our favorite song on the album, now available to purchase here!

Enjoy below…


Let’s not lie to ourselves…all of us are anticipating the release of Ashanti‘s new album ‘BraveHeart‘.

While we’re hoping she inks a record deal to give it the push her talent deserves, it’s clear to see the star is determined to head the independent route and now- before it arrives on R&B’s shores- she sat down to discuss the project and her role on ‘Lifetime’s ‘Army Wives‘.

Peep her dish on one of its strongest cuts, observing the careers of Beyonce & Rihanna and her former mentor Ja Rule, below…


It’s finally here!

After announcing its arrival last year, Pop bully Rihanna launched her ‘Diamonds World Tour’ at the First Niagra Center in Buffalo last night, performing a collection of her greatest hits to the general public.

Of course, faced with the fact that the many dates across the globe are yet to have sold out, the singer put her best foot forward alongside a crew of well rehearsed dancers and what might be her strongest stage design yet.

Watch her perform ‘Where Have You Been’ below…


It’s been a difficult week for Pop pin-up Justin Bieber.

Ripped to shreds by the British press after turning up two hours late to his London O2 Arena show on Tuesday, the 19 year old was yesterday taken to hospital after becoming short of breath mid-way through another UK concert. And unfortunately for the purveyor of Bieber Fever, things would only get worse today.

For, while leaving his London hotel, the ‘Baby’ singer would engage in a foul-mouth clash with a photographer.

Watch how the drama went down after the jump…
