As we predicted, Jermaine Paul wins NBC’s The Voice last night. The former Alicia Keys background singer, proved that he deserves to be in the spotlight and America agreed. He was our favorite from day one!

It’s also amazing how Blake Shelton, one of country music’s biggest stars and who isn’t usually up for much of the strong R&B talent, was able to mentor and coach, Jermaine Paul to the top, but he did an amazing job throughout the entire competition.

The two-night season finale was packed with the most powerful, soulful and heavy-hitting performances that I’ve seen from a reality TV show competition in recent memory. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Jermaine Paul. Not only does he have a voice that R&B needs today, but he is already developed and experienced from touring with Alicia Keys and now doing live TV. He’s got a great look and can probably experiment with acting and modeling, but for now I am sure he is ready to hit the studio and work on an album through the recording contract he has won through the show.

Here is a look back on Jermaine Paul’s winning performance singing, “I Believe I Can Fly”:

Vh1 DIVAS 2012 To Honor Whitney Houston

Posted by on May 9, 2012 in Celebrity Concert, Celebrity Honors, Celebrity Music, Celebrity News, Small News, TV Shows | Comments Off

No word on who’s performing, yet, but Vh1 DIVAS 2012 will feature a star-studded tribute to the late, great Whitney Houston. Disappointed with the way The Grammys honored Whitney, Vh1 has something really special planned for the true diva, but they are keeping most of the details under wrap. The 2012 DIVAS will air in December, and as soon as more information is available we will let you know. I hope they get Adele and someone, anyone who can actually sing LIVE.

New Film: ‘Beasts Of The Southern Wild’ Early Oscar Buzz

Posted by on May 9, 2012 in Celebrity News, Movies | 2 comments

Movies such as Think Like A Man get a lot of media buzz from blogs or alternative media. I like movies such as Think Like A Man, but I also like independent films that take a risk to bring us stories not often seen. Without a big name producer like Tyler Perry or Oprah Winfrey, films like Precious would just go unnoticed. Pariah is one of those films which we featured on MrsGrapevine.com that didn’t receive the press it deserved. In order to have more diversity in black films, we have to support these independent films. With that said, I want to present this new film to you, Beasts of the Southern Wild, featuring new comer, Quvenzhané WallisBeasts of the Southern Wild  is already generating an Oscar buzz and is set to hit theaters June 27th. Not to mention, it was one of the crowd favorites at the Sundance Film Festival and will be featured at Cannes.

Beasts Of The Southern Wild New Film: Beasts Of The Southern Wild Early Oscar Buzz

It’s hard to explain what the movie is about, so you will need to watch the trailer. The story takes place in the bayou around the time of a hurricane of biblical proportions kind of like Katrina. The film features a little heroine named Hushpuppy, who finds life in almost everything she sees, even in the midst of tragedy. It’s a message of hope through the eyes of a kid who stills sees the magic in life, even while the beasts of her life follow her around. I love this trailer *whispers to Oprah*!

Here’s the side of the NFL life that we don’t get to see too often.  Wide Receiver Terrell Owens pretty much gave us a candid look into his child support woes on the Dr. Phil show.  Terrell sat down with three of the four mothers of his children to talk about raising their children and the child support issues.

While I don’t know the exact details of the case, I DO know that he’s been said to have been paying huge amounts of child support at the height of his career.  Something in the six figure a month range. YIKES! He recently had a judgement to lower his payments to something that’s more fitting for his new career in the Indoor Football League but from the clip, it seems like there’s still some financial issues between him and the mothers. Check out the video below:
