katy perry-thatgrapejuice-beyonce-superbowl

“She’s like five notches above me, and those levels are compounded in difficulty.”

The quote above was pulled from Billboard’s recent sit down with pop sex kitten Katy Perry as she readies her highly anticipated Super Bowl showing (February 1st) by studying the 2013 outing of Beyonce.

Following in the top-rated, show-stopping footsteps of Madonna, Bey, and Bruno Mars, the ‘Dark Horse’ diva knows that pressure is riding high for her to match or surpass their epic performances.  To at least put her best foot forward, Katy shared that she’s consulted (in one way or the other) her most recent halftime show predecessors and is using a number of tricks to prepare for this Sunday.

Check out some of them below:

katy perry thatgrapejuice

The countdown is officially on to Katy Perry‘s “must-see” Super Bowl halftime show.

Coming to a screen near you Sunday night live from the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ, all eyes will be on the diva and her kooky antics to see if they live up to Superbowl showings past (i.e. Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Janet Jackson).

Sending anticipation into overdrive with the announcement that rocker Lenny Kravitz will be among guests joining her on the mega-outing, Perry teased her newly revealed guest in a recent interview:

“Q: Are you planning on inviting any guest performers?

A: Yes, of course. There were a couple of names I tossed around and this one really stuck. I thought OK, it’s time for this person to have their shine again.

Q: Is it someone who’s on one of your records?

A: Hmmm. That’s funny should ask. Let’s just say I’ve been familiar with them before in a roundabout way.”

Just as her Billboard magazine feature makes its way to shelves, the Associated Press has revealed who surprise guest #2 will be.  Tuck in below for the spoiler:

TGJ Replay: Alicia Keys’ ‘The Diary of Alicia Keys’

alicia keys-thatgrapejuice

Welcome, once again, to TGJ Replay.

Designed much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ features, ‘Replay’ is That Grape Juice‘s newest retrospective segment – a written quest, if you will, to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase entire albums (and eras) from a library of pop and Urban pop music hits.  As this week brought with it the 34th birthday of Grammy-winning R&B superstar Alicia Keys, we thought it time to add her ‘Diary of Alicia Keys’ album to our entries of ‘Replays.’

Get reacquainted with her 2003 sophomore set below:
