That Grape Juice Interviews Nicole Scherzinger, Akon, Alexandra Burke, JLS, Jason Derulo & More At Jingle Bell Ball 2010

Published: Wednesday 8th Dec 2010 by Sam

That Grape Juice was in the house at the 2010 Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball this past weekend. Held at London’s renown O2 Arena, the two-day extravaganza, which was sponsored by Windows 7, saw performances from the likes of the Black Eyed Peas, Nicole Scherzinger, Kylie Minogue, Alexandra Burke, Akon, Jason Derulo, JLS, among others.

Stationed backstage amidst other select media outlets, we caught up with a host of stars – including (yet not limited to):

* Alexandra Burke – who spoke to us about her plans for the US in 2011 and more.

* Jason Derulo – who appeared somewhat defensive about album sales.

* Nicole Scherzinger – who shared details about her forthcoming solo album.

* JLS – who, also, spoke on their American invasion.

* Jay Sean – who responded to critique that he had abandoned his Asian roots musically.

* Akon – who spoke about the controversy surrounding the new Michael Jackson album, whether there is more material to come from his sessions with the King of Pop, and which Destiny’s Child diva he is set to collaborate with.

  5. Stuart December 7, 2010

    LOL Jason Derulo… tut tut tut, don’t be so bitter about your album.

  6. Dave December 7, 2010

    YASSSSSS ALEXANDRA HERE IN THE STATES! Dead, he didn’t seem to be defensive about his record sales (Jason Derulo).

  7. joeblow December 7, 2010

    We’ll if jason doesn’t know let me inform him……cb would comepletely slaughter him in dancing its not even a contest. Don’t insult chris brown by even comparing them

  8. residentCritic December 7, 2010

    One thing I have to say about TGJ – you do great non-kiss-ass interviews! Kudos!

  9. 123456 December 7, 2010

    Nicole seemed diva ish

  10. carl December 7, 2010

    Jason and Nicole were the B****** of this interview. Her attitude really sucks!

  11. 86_22 December 7, 2010

    Looked like her PR guy was pushing Nicole so she was actually nice to give him a few answers.

  12. royalkev December 7, 2010

    Lmao @Derulo, Chris will murder you!

  13. Arbitraitor December 7, 2010

    It’s amazing to see how shameless Same and Trent of TGJ are. After mutilating some of these artists. You guys actually have the balls to be “journalists” and carry on an interview with them. I wish Jason Derulo would’ve told u to shove the microphone….Anyways. Seems with all the smoke and mirros You guys constantly speak on in the industry and the fakeness artists constantly sell; You two fit in perfectly! Bravo.

  14. x December 7, 2010

    oh, just Kelly’s album. I was hoping for a little surprise; That B and AKON were working together. However, I don’t think that they would fit good together.

  15. Seriously.. December 7, 2010

    You interview Jason Derulo after all the previous insults you’ve given him? You even try to embarrass him with his album sales? Come on Trent that’s not cool. He stayed humble though. Selling a million albums worldwide isn’t too bad. Stop hating Trent.

  16. KingMo December 7, 2010

    Nicole had a bit of an attitude…seemed kind of diva-ish to me.
    And poor Jason Derulo…smh. poor guy.
    I love Alexandra’s bubbly personality…u can tell she loves doing what she does.

  17. Dunster December 7, 2010

    Alex, Alex, Alex, you needs to switch it up, too much red one is not a good thing. Try Stargate, Missy….

  18. DJ December 7, 2010

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA LMAO Jason ???? what is this ?? Chris brown aint play when it comes to dance , he’ll destroy you . Jason homie do your thing but dont f** with CB

  19. VA STAND UP!! December 8, 2010

    Damn Trent! I am obviously NOT a Jason Def*ckNo fan, but jeez! It was so obvious what you were doing! SMH! I’d be lying if I said I didn’t laugh though! I guess Jason handled himself the best way he could. I love how he danced around that CB dance off question!
    We all know Chris would MURDER him on the dance floor! CB murders him in possibly every aspect, singing, dancing, accolades, sales, especially the looks department.

    *side eye* at him saying his album is platinum worldwide. Whatever Jason!

    Alexander Burke is too adorable. I love her accent and she seems really sweet! She can sing her ass off too.

    Jay Sean really isn’t attractive in person. He only looks attractive in his promo photos. *shrugs*

    SMH @ Necole acting like a ‘Diva’? Really? Girl Bye!

    Blah to everyone else!

  20. UGh December 8, 2010

    How come we never see Sam? I don’t think he’s a good looking as Trent.

  21. Beystanbish December 8, 2010

    That Jason derulo interview was awkward. Lmao. Sam show us your face h**. Does anybody knows how he looks?

  22. hlena December 8, 2010

    NICOLENICOLENICOLENICOLENICOLE
    nicole scherzinger is the BEST <3

  23. Lolsmileyface December 8, 2010

    Only Alexandra Burke and The Saturdays seemed the most genuine.
    Nicole kind of had a diva attitude but kind of brought it down a bit at the end, and Akon was the same way.

  24. Timago December 8, 2010

    Ugh… Most of these artists were clearly fueled up on cocaine before they were interviewed. Such a horrible habit. How unfortunate. 🙁

  25. TC ;D December 8, 2010

  27. Keesha December 8, 2010

    “You’ve been very successful with you SINGLES thus far” *DEAD*

  28. zania December 8, 2010

    @tjl lol yall know you are wrong for putting Jason on the spot. He know he can’t measure up to Chris Brown. Its probably killing him that Chris supposedly got blackballed and still got three grammys and he didn’t get any. It was an insult to Chris to compare him to Jason, but it made me laugh to see Jason reaction. I don’t like jason every since that interview he did, laughing at Chris Brown situation , he so jealous of Chris. He is mad that Chris is fine, and talented and can dance his b*** off. I know, Jason, Neyo and Usher felt some type of way when the Jackson kept petition for Chris Brown to do the tribute for Michael Jackson and Chris did a private performance just for the Jackson family. This past year Jermaine had Chris at his home.

  31. Beyonce owns Your Fav. December 8, 2010

    TC;D is so obsessed with Beyonce. Damn, she has your mind, body, and soul.

    And Brandy snatching wigs? In What Decade? This ain’t the 90s boo.

    Wasn’t Brandy supposed to snatch Beyonce Wig in 2008 with “Human”. What Happened?

    I recall her stans storming Beyonce message boards and youtube videos saying that she was about to come back and reclaim her crown and put Beyonce in her place.

    However, when the first week numbers were in Human debuted on the charts somewhere between Kevin Federline’s album and the Best of Mokenstef. And the Brandy stans went away.

    Now go away again and stay away.

    I usually don’t have a problem with Brandy but TC;D you are annoying.

    But I’m ask you this question.

    Why you so obsessed sweetie?

    Anyways

    Love Alex, she is so sweet and genuine.

  32. eric December 8, 2010

    I love TGJ!

  33. Tlc December 8, 2010

    Wow T.G.J interviews Jason after all the s*** talking…!?? Jason didn’t hand you guys your asses to you like I wanted him to….. Ill just hope for an interview with you guys and Rihanna….that’ll put you asswipes in place…smh….

  34. Camy Joe December 8, 2010

  35. jewelz December 8, 2010

  37. WonderLand19 December 8, 2010

    Loved the interview. Thank you TGJ for keeping it real and asking the questions that we want. Please keep on like this.
    Alexandra and The Saturdays answered the questions really well, with jay sean. plus, JB from jls gave a good answer to there faillure in America. Jason Derulo was SOOO FUUNNNY, plus that Chris brown question really got to him. He could have just answered the question in a funny way and not be defensive. Oh well, his lost!

    GREAT STUFF

  38. Aryo December 8, 2010

    Cant wait for nicole’s second single due january!

  39. Aryo December 8, 2010

    ugh, Nicole’s interview was just 30 seconds!!!!!
    and why was jason so arrogant? i didnt like his attitude!

  40. Aryo December 8, 2010

    great work TGJ!

  41. ciaralover December 8, 2010

    lmao who would win in a dance competition against JASON & CHRIS lmaoooo are u serious i did not even know JASON DERULO knew how to dance lmaoooo but anyways back to a serious note CHRIS BROWN would MURDER him 🙂

  42. LOL December 8, 2010

    DEAD at yall LAMES WITH NO LIVES COMPARING JASON DERULO TO CHRIS BROWN !!!!

    HOW ARE YOU GONNA COMPARE SOME ONE WHOOSE BEEN IN THE GAME FIVE YEARS TO A NEW ARTIST WHOOSE PROFESSIONAL CAREER ONLY SPANS A FEW MONTHS !!!

    JASON DERULO IS A GREAT DANCER/ SINGER/WRITER HES SOLD OVER A MIL WORLD WIDE SO WHY THROW SHADE!!!

    FACT CHRIS BROWN WAS NOT MUCH OF A DANCER IN THE BEGINING

    HE ADMITS THIS HIMSELFIN AN UNRELEASED MUSIC VIDEO http://neonlimelight.com/2010/02/28/chris-brown-embarrassed-by-old-unreleased-music-video-for-whose-girl-is-that/

    BUT YOU COULD SINCE POTENTIAL THE SAME CAB BE SAID FOR JASON D

  43. Bbcocochannel December 8, 2010

    Lol ‘certain’ Chris Brown!! I have never seen him freestyle dance, but by his cheography CB will probably murder him!!! But then again I have to wait and see… Oh and JD, please watch your mouth, laughing at that, I like your behaviour so don’t mess it up! Nicole Shezinger needs to step the singing game up, on X Factor she wasn’t bad but she wasn’t even OK!! Goo Alex showing of her powerful sininginf skills again, in this next album! Cannot wait.. For the others I don’t really care… Hmmm…. Akon (he must be getting tired of that GaGa money if he wants to start singing again, because if I was him I would just sit down’ and spend)! Good luck for all of them!!!

  44. Bbcocochannel December 8, 2010

    We all know TGJ is obsessed with Rihanna, Beyoncè, Chris Brown!!! It’s like visiting Rihanna Daily, Chris Brown Web and Beyoncè’s World all in one!!! I Just read through the rest of the comments, Jason Derülo and Chris Brown are 2 different people, I favour CB but I am a stan, please don’t start Fan Wars!! Team Breezy keep your dignity and sanity!!

  45. Bbcocochannel December 8, 2010

    @LOL… I remember that video he was sooooooo cute, but he couldn’t dance and he was not as attractive, he looked goofy and lanky!!! But it just shows how far he has come, and at LEAST his vocals were on point, haven’t got much to say about his terrible dancing!!! Lmao… Thnx for bringing back that memory!!! Too funny!!

  46. lola December 9, 2010

    LMMAO!!!!!! OMG that Jason Derulo interview was funny as hell! I’m laughing while I’m typing my comment. Y’all wrong for asking him who would win in a dance battle, him or Chris brown but very bold. And his face… He said “I don’t know” with a blank expression! Thanks for the good laugh!

    Nicole… what a nasty, arrogant, b****? WTF was her problem? She showed that she didn’t want to “be bothered.” She’s f****** lucky a popular blog like this one even wanted to interview her stank ass. What I don’t understand is what was the “I’m too good to talk to you” attitude about when y’all was asking about her album? What a dumbass. Anyone who has an album at should know they need all the promo they can get and should announce that they have an album coming out… with he ugly ostrich looking ass. Nicole is ugly as hell! She looks 42, not 32 and that’s why her solo career isn’t taking off no matter if she gets a number 1 or not.

    Alexandra Burke… great personality but she’s not going anywhere with her career, especially with that wackass Red One song.

    Jay Sean, what a sell out? What he meant was when the Asian sound wasn’t getting him places, he moved to bubblegum pop. How hypocritical of him to call the Asian sound gimmicky when his music right now is very gimmicky. Ah ha! That’s why 2012 didn’t go anywhere and no one is checking for him anymore. Oh yea and he’s ugly too.

  47. antertain December 10, 2010

    Sam LMFAO @ the way u just terminated the Jason interview OMG but anyway great interviews with Alexandra, Akon, Nicole (who was being rushed along but still answered the q’s) & Jay Sean.

    Labrinth very new so he not quite developed Q&A skillz as yet, but sure he will.
    Well done also to JB of JLS for being professional and answering very well.
