mary mary quite contrary....

Why Mary, why? I've always had a lot of respect for Mary J. Blige. She just comes off as so damn...real. Her music is the stuff emotion is made of. She has become a legend without having to die or go crazy...which it would seem is damn near impossible. I've always admired her.

So when I heard that she had teamed up with Chris Brown to record a track after the notorious incident, I was damn well nearly shocked into comatose. I mean how could she? She has her own past which she had to overcome, how in the hell could she be a supporter of team Chris the "Monster" Brown?

I've basically dismissed anyone who believes that Chris Brown doesn't deserve everything that's coming to him as either a complete tool, dizzy in the head, or themselves a monster...or all of the above. I mean the dude busted up Rhi-rhi's face so bad she was barely recognizable. Who does that except a monster? I will admit, I have kept my mouth shut about the whole damn thing for the most part because I've actually stopped respecting people over arguments over this damn fiasco. But Mary? Really, Mary? Please oh please tell me this was a momentary slip in judgment and that you will soon come to your senses!

I mean, as a black woman, she should be the last person supporting this loser! It isn't helping our cause, not one bit! Ok, so maybe she is trying to preach a message of forgiveness, or some such nonsense...but the song kind of sucks to begin with, and I think its a horrible message still. "It's ok lil' Sally if your mans done bust up ya face, turn da other cheek and forgive him...so he can bust up da other side..."

I am so glad Rhianna finally came to her senses and left him high and dry. I can only speculate as to what was going through MJB's mind when she agreed to team up with Chris Brown.

I mean, we've all heard the saying "all publicity is good publicity..." maybe she was thinking that this might cause some noise around her which will later translate into dollars...

But again, I find this just as disturbing as the idea that she's simply preaching a message of forgiveness. In fact, I think it's worse. Because now, she is not only supporting a woman beater, but exploiting a situation where a woman got beat down simply in the name of the almighty dollar...

Mary has walked a mile in Rhi-rhi's shoes. she should be offering guidance and support! Smh...Mary must have lost her damn mind...I just don't get it.

Right Now I'm listening to:

Well i guess that's one more artist I will no longer get down with. Im appalled. I love MJB. But rite now i'm *side eyein* her like hell. People should be treating Ike Turner Jr like the plague right now. Not helping him resurrect his career. Uggh.
