Some love it, others hate it…however, there’s no denying Rihanna’s mastered the art of ‘performapartying‘.

The unique art of performing as though one was at a liqueur laden frat party, the last few years have seen Fenty perfect with this age craft with relative ease…putting many a two bit Karaoke queen to shame with her timeless ‘mic to the crowd…Henny to the lips’ routine.

Bob Fosse who?

Now watch her showcase the best of her moves during a performance of ‘Talk That Talk‘, armed with thinly veiled ‘liquid courage’ below…

Shocking as it may be to believe, Nicole Scherzinger has yet to release a solo album on home soil. Still.

Indeed, as many will recall, 2007’s ‘Her Name Is Nicole’ never arrived, while 2011’s ‘Killer Love’ was a Europe-only effort. With the latter having enjoyed chart success in territories such as the UK and France, it appears a sound foundation has been set for a global roll-out for its follow-up.

The former Pussycat Doll was snapped continuing work on the set, her third, with producer Kareem James. Canadian-bred, but US-based, James has crafted material for the likes of Drake and Alexandra Burke.

Reliable word tells That Grape Juice the flavour of the Scherzinger sessions was Urban-Pop – which, quite literally, sounds like (the right) music to our ears. The über Pop direction of her past efforts always baffled us given her Urban skew. In any case, here’s hoping the 35-year-old is cooking up the material US listeners are willing to embrace this go round.

The Lifetime network is heating up this Summer…thanks to ‘Devious Maids’. 

Created Marc Cherry (the brain behind Desperate Housewives), and executive produced by Eva Longoria, the show follows five Latina maids who work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. Each lady has ambitions and dreams of her own, while one of them has a much darker reason for working the circuit.

Having debuted in June, the show’s first season boasts 13 episodes. Check out a preview for episode 7 of the first series below…

As the fourth quarter looms, so too does the return of many a Pop force. Indeed, joining the likes of Lady GaGa and Mariah Carey is Billboard darling Katy Perry.

Presently revving up her promo machine ahead of the unveiling of her new single, the ‘Teenage Dream’ hitmaker covers the UK edition of Elle magazine — looking delightfully diva, if we must say.

**********

So-so performances and unnecessary re-release aside, it’s hard to deny Ms. Perry’s last “era” served up many a gem. After a (relatively) long spell away from the limelight, though, it’ll be interesting to see if she can replicate such success. Do you feel she can?

Les Twins showed up and shout in Boston recently,  joining the force that is Beyonce to wow her audience with a live serving of ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’.

Fierce, vivacious and riddled with soul, the performance stood as one of the many exciting aspects of the ‘Mrs.Carter Show’, which saw its recently announced Brazilian dates shift a sweet 15,000 tickets within hours of release- forcing venues across the country to add more point of sale outlets to sell them.

Little more than three months ago, the world knew next to nothing of Lady GaGa‘s new album ‘ARTPOP’- met only with its title and confirmation of its release.

However, today tells a different story.

Indeed, with only 21 days left until its lead single ‘Applause’ becomes available purchase alongside pre-orders for the album itself, the Pop Svengali breaks her year long silence on the new release, baring all in an interview with ‘Women’s Wear Daily’.
