Earlier this year Burger King dropped their latest commercial online featuring singer Mary J Blige. Mary promoting their new Crispy Chicken Wraps through song proved to be a source of confusion, laughter and entertainment for days. Poor Mary. Now the singer has finally addressed the situation on the Angie “I love everyone” Martinez radio show. “It was just something I thought would have been a great branding opportunity.

Earlier this week it was reported that singer Mary J Blige announced that she had passed her G.E.D ( High School Equivalency Diploma) and had been accepted in to Howard University. I refused to post this news at the time because I thought it sounded a bit fishy, and it turns out that I wasn’t the only one who thought the story sounded a bit suspect.
