Exclusive Interview: Keyshia Cole Dishes On New Music, Reality Show, Movies & More

*Pinned: Posts Resume As Normal Below*

Grammy nominated R&B songbird Keyshia Cole is undoubtedly at a crossroad in her career.

A celebrated songstress often branded “this generation’s Mary J. Blige” for her soulful tales of love gone wrong and undeviating appeals to the heartbroken, Cole once held a unique place among her rhythmic contemporaries as her releases – even in the genre’s initial decline – consistently topped charts and defied sales odds.

Yet, as R&B began to succumb to the wiles of fusions (see: trap, pop, etc.), it appeared to threaten the holds of even its heaviest hitmakers, Cole included.  By the time her 2014 release, the critically polarizing ‘Point of No Return,’ hit the shelves, some fans feared she’d reach just that.

Determined to prove the naysayers wrong, Keyshia is back – and as she tells That Grape Juice – better than ever.  Tuck in below to read what she shared exclusively with TGJ about her return to music, reality TV, and even plans to venture into movies:

Grammy Producers Speak On Racism Claims, Show’s Tech Glitches, & More

It’s been nearly a week since the 59th annual Grammy Awards aired and people are still very much up-in-arms over a number of infamous moments from the telecast.

After Adele‘s historic sweep of the Album, Song, and Record of the Year categories, conversation erupted about how few times people of color have won the ceremony’s top honor over its 59 year history.  This added to the fact this year’s most nominated acts – Beyonce, Rihanna, Drake, Kanye West, and Chance the Rapper – mostly walked away with minor awards (if any awards at all).

As if that wasn’t enough, there were a number of sound snafus and technical mixups over the show including Metallica lead singer’s, James Hetfield, mic being completely off during a portion of the group’s performance with Lady Gaga and a picture of gospel singer Cece Winans being displayed behind a caption that read “Shirley Caesar.

Tuck in below to read the Recording Academy’s response to all the hoopla:
