MARY J. BLIGE TURNS HER BACK ON CRISPY CHICKEN SNACK WRAPS
We stand by our initial feelings of appreciation for the Queen of Hip Hop Soul’s new commercial for Burger King, mainly because we’ve never seen MJB be so self-effacing before. However, no matter her station in life, drama always seems to find her. She tells TMZ that “I agreed to be a part of a fun and creative campaign that was supposed to feature a dream sequence. Unfortunately, that’s not what was happening in that clip.” [TMZ]
MARY, FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH, THE BARENAKED LADIES ARE FANS, TOO!
Ed Robertson and Tyler Stewart of the Barenaked Ladies appeared on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live this morning and declared their appreciation for the new commercial. They even worked a few references to the commercial into their hit, “One Week”! [VH1.COM]
