IT girl of the moment Rihanna fainted onstage while performing her smash ‘Umbrella’ with Chris Brown during a concert in Sydney, Australia today.

As seen in the video above, the 20 year old star is visibly clutching her stomach in pain and stumbles off stage into the hands of her handlers, while rumored boyfriend Brown completes the song.

Her camp have since confirmed that she is ok after being taken to the hospital following the occurrence.

Though I don’t mince my words about Ms. Fenty (with good reason), here’s hoping she’s actually better.

Your thoughts?

R&B star Usher recently stopped by the Angie Martinez show on Hot 97 to promote the New York tour stop of his ladies aimed ‘One Night Only’ Stateside trek. Though, the ‘Love In This Club’ singer mainly spoke about the tour, he confirmed that wife Tameka is due with the couple’s second child next month (Wow, they didn’t waste anytime!) as well as her reaction to his provocative stage-shows. A pretty interesting listen, I must say.

Any thoughts?

Pop superstar Madonna brought out fellow mega-star Britney Spears last night during the Los Angeles stop of her ‘Sticky & Sweet’ tour at the Dodgers Stadium. Looking every inch a star, Spears joined Madge, 50, on stage for a rendition of ‘Human Nation’.
Though the performance wasn’t exactly mind-blowing, it’s great to see Ms. Spears looking so great and getting her self reacquainted with the music scene again.

: Justin Timberlake was also in the building. He joined Madonna onstage for ‘4 Minutes’ later in the show. Oh how ‘interesting’ it must have been backstage!

Jamie Foxx Preps 'Intuition'Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is taking a break from Hollywood to release ‘Intuition,’ the follow-up to 2005’s ‘Unpredictable’, this December:

Due Dec. 16 from J Records, the set is preceded by the single “Just Like Me” featuring T.I., which is the top debut this week at No. 48 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

The track, which was co-written and produced by the hitmaking team of the-Dream and Christopher “Tricky” Stewart, goes to digital retailers on Tuesday.

“Intuition” will also feature contributions from Timbaland, Ne-Yo, Sean Garrett, Salaam Remi and Carlos McKinney, among others. It’s the follow-up to 2005’s “Unpredictable,” which has sold 1.98 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. {Source}

I seem to be among the few who felt ‘Unpredictable’ really wasn’t that great (a few songs aside, highly overrated IMO), so I’m definitely hoping this new CD showcases Jamie’s undeniably awesome vocals with better material.

The video for 50 Cent’s new single ‘Get Up’, the first from the G-Unit general’s forthcoming album ‘Before I Self-Destruct’, premiered today. Though the video is better than the average Hip-Hop clip and visually quite engaging, there’s no escaping that the song doesn’t really touch anything he put out when he was actually relevant.

‘Before I Self-Destruct’ hits stores December 16th.

That Grape Juice UpdateAfter taking a brief moment to soak up Obama’s victory, it’s back to business here at That Grape Juice. I’d like to take a quick moment to update you all on a few things; so without further ado:

Comments: Comments are working properly now! We’ve had technical difficulties with the embedded comments box (at the bottom of a given post). Hence for now we’ve reverted back to the pop-up box. We love to hear what you all are thinking about everything and anything, so please do continue to express yourself. (It’s advsised that you may need to turn off your pop-up blocker – if you have one)

Janet Competition: After the postponement and rumored cancelling of several dates of Janet Jackson’s ‘Rock Witchu’ tour, our ‘That Grape Juice Wants To Rock Witchu’ ticket give-away contest has inevitably affected (possibly fatally). Stay tuned, particularly over the next few days, for a concrete update on this.

D. Woods Interview: The former Danity Kane star will be interviewed by That Grape Juice within the coming week. Scheduling conflicts have been the primary cause of the delay.

Guess Who?: Speaking of interviews, we are very close to confirming interviews with two members of a very well known musical family. Any guess on who?

Emails: For those whose emails have seemingly gone unanswered, please accept my apologies. The site literally receives upwards of 100 emails daily, so it can become a little difficult sifting though them all – even harder to respond to them all. Rest assured that I’m trying my hardest to respond to as many as possible – as much as time permits.

Thank you all for the support; it’s very very very much appreciated.

Remember to keep it locked on!
Danity Kane Drama Continues; Group Refuse New Season Of Making The BandIt appears as though those who thought the controversial ‘axing’ of Aubrey O’ Day and D. Woods from Danity Kane signalled the end of the drama surrounding the once-five-piece were wrong. According to new reports, there continues to be internal friction within the group and Bad Boy/MTV, with the ladies apparently refusing to sign on for the next season of Making The Band 4. Check out the report via below:

We have learned that MTV will begin shooting the next season of Making The Band in 2 weeks, however, it will be WITHOUT the 2 members of Danity Kane. Apparently, the group is said to be extremely fed up with Diddy and living out their lives in front of the MTV cameras.

The new season is following Day 26(the male group formed from the reality series) as they go out on the road and prepare to tour Europe. The season will also capture Donnie Klang a.k.a. Aubrey O’day’s former love interest, as he tours with New Kids On The Block.

The remaining girls(Dawn Richards, Aundrea Fimbres) and possibly Shannon Bex?? will have a “meeting” with Diddy on camera but that is their extent of their participation right now with no contract in place to appear in the new series. Maybe this will be the episode where Shannon tells Diddy and her fans that she quit? We hear that she has not “officially” come back to the group and though she may perform here and there with the remaining 2 group members, she did resign and no one has heard otherwise.

A mess, if there ever was one. For all their ‘potential’, I’m sure as anything that no one will be watching Making The Band 4 just to see Day26. For the sake of the group, show and whatnot, here’s hoping Danity Kane in their original form patch it up and keep it moving.

The youngest of the Knowles clan, Solange, is currently here in the UK to promote the release of her current single ‘Sandcastle Disco’, the 22 year old stopped by The Paul O’Grady show (which was being guest-hosted by Spice Girl Mel B) earlier this week to perform the track as well as sit down for an interview. You can check out the performance above and interview below:

The performance was solid, as is becoming the norm for burgeoning star. I must say she also came across really well in the interview too – and seemed to let her hair down a lot more than we usually see from her, which can only be described as a good thing.

Tidbit: As mentioned during her interview, Solange is currently on a tour of the UK, click here to see dates and prices for the shows.
