Sounds of Blackness

When Mary J Blige dropped the commercial for “Chrispy Chicken, lettuce, three cheeses” (the song is catchy as hell) most laughed and thought the commercial wasn’t up to the standard for a star like Mary but racist, no. Unfortunately the black elite don’t think the commerical is funny and tried to make a little more seriously than it was supposed to be. Black people eat chicken, White people eat chicken,Indian people eat chicken, Asian people eat chicken.  If you go to a restaurant no matter the ethnicity you can get chicken made to your liking. For the ones that are upset about the “message” it sends I encourage you to find a more meaningful way to channel your outrage. Black on Black violence, underfunded schools, teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and the disrespect for Black life should keep you busy instead of Mary J’s Chrispy Chicken commercial . What say you am I overlooking the “bigger” picture or should they just have a V8. Let me know in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri

Mary J Releases Statement on “Chickengate”

Mary J Blige had black twitter on high alert after her hilarious Burger King commercial was released. From the lyrics to the song to Steve Stout saying that was #nottanning I have had a few good chuckles at her expense. Mary J went to TMZ.com to release a statement about her intentions with the fast food chain. Read the statement below and tell us your thoughts in comments or @akireshenri @mediamyx

“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.”

“I understand my fans being upset by what they saw. But, if you’re a Mary fan, you have to know I would never allow an unfinished spot like the one you saw go out.”

Burger King confirms the ad was released prematurely “before all of the licensing and final approvals were obtained.” The fast food giant also says, “We would like to apologize to Mary J. and all of her fans for airing an ad that was not final.”
