    I hate EBONICS its the worse magazine out. I have lost all repsect for this mess of a magazine. As the newspaper industry threatens to go under due to the digital information age may EBONICS join them!

  22. theman October 10, 2010

    Mary looks great, this is a really nice photo. Mary does need to change up her look tho.

  23. DION-ISH October 10, 2010


    OMG My jaw Dropped….That was jus TEW rude.

    She is not ugly.

  24. True Blue October 10, 2010

    To be honest, I’m tired of all these contemporary celebrities channeling older ones by doing tributes of iconic covers or photoshoots. You got Lindsay Lohan doing Marilyn Monroe, Jennifer Aniston doing Barbra Streisand, Kim KarTRASHian doing Elizabeth Taylor (UGH!), I mean it’s nice at first, but it gets redundant after awhile. But if you’re playing the person in a movie, then okay, that’s another story. But anywho, Mary looks pretty on the cover, however I’m afraid I can’t say the same for the person who called her ugly.

    Mary looks beautiful and the resemblence in these pictures is uncanny.

  27. J4N3T F4N October 11, 2010

    Love it. Diana is a legend and MJB is well on her way as well.

  28. L’ Art October 11, 2010

    Mary really looks like Ms. Ross in that pic

  29. BENJAMIN October 11, 2010

    I like it, I wish she’d try that hair color for once.

  30. Dane October 11, 2010

    Horrible picture……THey should’ve got Beyonce or Ciara too pay Homage to Diana Ross……smh….

  31. FortuneCookie October 11, 2010

    for a sec… i thought it was Nivea… looks nothing like MJB

  32. lady president October 11, 2010

    the best i have ever seen mary look.. the ghetto blond hair is so played out..

  33. Maddd??? October 13, 2010

    Sorry, the pic looks NOTHING like Miss Ross. In fact, if they didn’t have the 1970 cover of Miss Ross, I would have never have known that was who they were paying homage to. With that said, I hope Mary changes up her style a little bit…. I’m sick to death of that blond hair, lol.

  34. SINCERE November 13, 2010

    Some dumb d**** on here! None of the artist in the issue are suppose to “look” like the original, they are capturing the image of. With that said Mary looks beautiful. Mary and Ebony did a great job.
