MARY J BLIGE RIGHT NOW OFFICIAL VIDEO Mary J. Unveils Official Right Now Video

Okay, so it appears the video Mary J. Blige released a few weeks ago for her single “Right Now” wasn’t the official video, but rather a prequel of what was to come.

The Queen of Hip-Soul just unveiled the official video for the single moments ago via VEVO.

Mary takes a completely different approach with the official video, opting for color, lots of fashion, flashy cars and the ubiquitous R&B club scene.

Vote for Your Favorite Black Actress

posted by Sista on October 23, 2014

NICOLE BEHARIE PEOPLES CHOICE AWARDS 150x250 Vote for Your Favorite Black Actress

Voting for the 2015 People’s Choice Awards is underway and quite a few Brown Sistas have their names in contention, including my favorite: “Sleepy Hollow” actress Nicole Beharie.

Nicole is up for Favorite Sc-Fi/Fantasy Actress, as is Danai Gurira who stars in “The Walking Dead” and Halle Berry who starred in the summer TV thriller “Extant.”

I’m partial to Beharie because “Sleepy Hollow” and Ichabbie is everything. Halle is cool, but “Extant” bored me and poor Danai, Michonne is a major character in the comic book version of “The Walking Dead,” but the TV version has practically turned her into a mute. I would be shocked if her character has said five-hundred words in the last two seasons.
