I’ve been meaning to update you guys on a number of things for a while now, but have been procrastinating. So without further ado LOL…
* Janet Tour Contest: Janet Jackson’s cancellation of her ‘Rock Witchu’ tour has essentially led to the premature end of our ‘That Grape Juice Wants To Rock Witchu’ contest, something that disappointed me personally. Thankfully, winners for select dates that went ahead enjoyed the show from their very very close seats (pops collar…you know how we do LOL LOL). You will be pleased to know that we have a similar themed contest in the pipeline for one of next year’s biggest tours. Any guesses as to who?
* T.I. & D. Woods Interviews: It’s with much annoyance that I can confirm that our telephone time with T.I. has been cancelled. We had been allocated a time to interview the rapper during last month’s Thanksgiving Week, however we received word a day prior that his overseas press time had been cancelled due to a lack of time in his US schedule.
Though the unpredictable nature of these things is always something to bare in mind, it’s still very annoying when things like this happen. I will go on record and say that we, here at That Grape Juice, work very hard to secure the very best interviews (See: Interview archive to the left) and will definitely continue to do so.
As regards D. Woods, the official word from her people is that a slot is still to be allocated. I must say though, with D. Woods keeping a relatively low profile since her split from Danity Kane and a new season of Making The Band (kinda…’Bonus episodes’) set to air at the top of 09, I’m thinking there may be more to it all. Watch this space is what I’ll say…
* That Grape Juice – End of Year Awards: Technical glitches can be a bitch (pardon my French LOL). The final nominee list and voting are now set to go live tomorrow – 23rd December.
* Xmas Updates: With Christmas around the corner and it hitting me that I’ve bought little to nothing in the way of presents (as well as all of the stress that comes along with this time of the year), updates may be a little slower than usual. Just a little. That said, I don’t want any of the That Grape Juice faithful to leave me hanging in the meanwhile! One of the main aspects of all this that I love is the fact that it’s all very unpredictable – anything can happen/surface at any time! So do be sure to keep it locked on That Grape Juice as you usually would!
