Brown Sistas At “Movie Rock”

John Legend & Mary J. Blige An all-star line up of Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce Knowles and Mary J. Blige, took to the stage last night to perform at “Movies Rock”- a two hour live event to celebrate the relationship between music and film. Proving that green isn’t just for Kermit the Frog, Beyonce and Mary J walked the red carpet in gorgeous emerald gowns. Both ladies would later switch it up for their performances. Beyonce took to the stage to perform “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” in a multi-colored gown. While Mary J, to your right, changed into a cream colored gown and was joined by John Legend to perform “As Time Goes By”.

Mary Covers Genlux Magazine

Gracing the October/November edition of Genlux Magazine is the one and only Mary J. Blige- and what can I say? Wow! The sista looks absolutely amazing. Mary has always made a beautiful covergirl and Genlux captured her beauty perfectly with the cover shot. Genlux is described as a luxury fashion and beauty magazine for the affluent Southern California woman, offering the latest on what to wear, how to wear it and where to find it. Unfortunately, unless you live in California you probably will not be able to find this particular issue. I received this pic over a week ago but cannot find the actual magazine anywhere. I guess that just leaves us this cute little cover to admire from afar.

Mary J. Blige “Growing Pains” CD Cover

Mary J. Blige “Growing Pains” CD Cover With the release of Mary J. Blige’s Growing Pains CD right around the corner, you knew it would only be a matter of time before we all got a glimpse of the cover. To your right is the understated, yet elegant pic that was chosen to grace Mary’s new opus. The pic is beautiful. The hairstyle is very Rihanna-ish. The jewelry and make-up are understated. I’m not overwhelmed by it or very impressed, but you all know how hard I am to please when it comes to photo shoots. Still, Mary does look regal, which is probably the look the Queen Of Hip Hop & Soul was aiming for.

Next Generation Divas

Mya VH-1 celebrated the ten year anniversary of the Save Music Foundation at the Lincoln Center in New York City and singers Mariah Carey and Mya were on hand to celebrate the occasion. VH-1 aired it’s first Diva’s Live concert in support of the foundation back in 1990 and it was a spectacular event, featuring amazing performances by Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, and many others. Diva’s Live became the premiere event for female singers to perform at and for about the first 3 or 4 years I remember watching it religiously. I even picked up the CD from the second year that featured an amazing duet between Mary J. Blige and Whitney Houston. Sadly, after about the 4th year, the lack of female singers who could actually sing, caused ratings to dip and the show to eventually change it’s name.
