As fans well know, Hip Hop Soul Queen Mary J. Blige caused a royal uproar when she teamed with Burger King for the unveiling of their crispy chicken wraps. Unwrapping what was then a very unexpected backlash, the singer immediately went into damage control – claiming the burger monarch did not portray her in the light she expected.
Now, to clear the air, ‘I’m Going Down’ diva has taken to radio queen Angie Martinez to dish on what really went down with she and the King of Whoppers.
Making her rounds in support of the new Tom Cruise-led musical ‘Rock of Ages’, get into what Mary had to say about the heat that followed that crispy commercial and more after the jump:
The buzz from the incident has well died down. And, while we applaud Mary for getting it out in the open, we do recognize that this will probably be the first of many times she has to address the issue given it being her first time publicly speaking on it.
Be that as it may, Mary’s career has sustained her in a way that this incident will probably be under-rug-swept in a few months time. It’s just unfortunate that such a good song had to go to waste over the mistake of an ill-planned commercial.
