Peep Mariah Carey on the set of her new video, the Brett Ratner directed ‘H.A.T.E U’, which was shot and wrapped yesterday in Malibu. In staying true to our stance of not downing celebs on how they look, I’ll just say ol’ Mimi has had better days. Much better days….
Mariah Carey sure is doing the media rounds this week, most recently stopping by renown interviewer Larry King’s CNN show a few hours ago. You can check out part 1 of the interview above and the rest after the jump. A pretty insightful interview (quite refreshing coming from Mimi), with everything from her emotional abuse, pregnancy rumours, the Michael Jackson memorial and more tackled. A great watch…
It’s that time again! That Grape Juice wants to see what you all are listening to. Which 5 tracks have you got on constant rotation at the moment?
Remember, it doesn’t have to be limited to Urban music; could be something new, Throwback, religious, even something you made yourself LOL. Drop a comment in the comments section. Mine are – in no particular order:
1) I Can Transform Ya – Chris Brown
2) Sponsor – Teairra Mari
3) Bad Romance – Lady GaGa
4) Rockband – Usher
R&B royalty Mary J. Blige gave a rousing rendition of the US national anthem, ‘The Star Spangled Banner’, at the final of the World Series at the Yankee Stadium in New York last night. Though not the best live showing I’ve seen of the song, Mary held her own with the song, which many a diva has tried their hand at.
Tidbit: The New York Yankees won their 27th World Series title, defeating the Philadelphia Phillies to do so.
Remember Donnie Klang? Making The Band 4? Still don’t? I really can’t blame you. A victim of Diddy’s ‘no-promo-when-show-ain’t- on-air’, we’ve heard pretty much nothing from Donnie since his debut album ‘Just A Rolling Stone’ sold triple copper last year.
In any case, the 24 year old is back with new single ‘Prisoner of Love’, the video for which premiered today. Directed by The Littles, the video and the song aren’t that bad. While I remember scratching my head as to why Diddy signed him (he’s simply not good enough, plus that bootleg Justin Timberlake thing was never going to cut it), this is definitely much more in line with what Donnie should be singing IMO. As that contrived Electro-Pop he was trying to pass off as believable the last go round was not the business.
No word yet on a title or release date for his sophomore effort…(Sam checks to see if he’s still on Bad Boy>>>he is>>>sounds about right! SMH…)
The video for Gucci Mane’s 1st official single ‘Spotlight’, featuring Usher, premiered today. I’m really not understanding the hoo-harr around Gucci, if I’m to be entirely, hence my sole thought watching this was ‘Why is Usher in this?’. Still, not a bad video. Look out for cameos by Nicki Minaj and Eddie Murphy’s eldest daughter Bria Murphy, who plays the lead female.
Gucci’s debut album ‘The State vs. Radric Davis’ hits stores December 8th.
The trailer for Tyler Perry’s ‘Why Did I Get Married Too’ aired on Entertainment Tonight a few moments ago. Once again starring Janet Jackson, the sequel to 2007′s box office smash ‘Why Did I Get Married’ is set to be released April 2010. The trailer looks off the charts!
Interesting to note, Janet was on the set of the movie when she learned of her brother Michael’s passing back in June. She returned to filming a few weeks later, so I’d imagine this one will see an emotionally charged performance from Ms. Jackson (and the rest of the cast). Definitely looking forward to this.
