She may have risen to fame 30 years ago as ‘227’s sassy Sandra Clark, but 2015 is proving that actress Jackee Harry is still just as sassy with or without a script.  Case in point? The Emmy winner’s recent comments on ‘Fallen’ singer Mya.

Ruffling a few feathers this morning after she took to Twitter to urge fans to “save Mya from the pole,” Harry’s comments follow weeks of speculation that the R&B stage blazer has resorted to previewing new music at strip clubs.

See her comments below:

As the video above made its rounds, the story reached a new height of traction last week after hit rapper former 106 & Park-host Bow Wow took to Facebook to say:

Despite earning a slight backlash from the singer’s supporters (and a slam here or there for fiancee Erica Mena), viewers across the net entered heated debates on the topic.

According to NecoleBitchie, Mya clapped back at critics, saying:

“I am whatever I choose to be when I choose to be it. The joy of life. Live it. Been doin’ strip clubs, LGBT clubs, dance clubs, straight clubs, concerts, festivals since 1998 to date. I love all my fans and it don’t stop. Instagram generation is late as hell.”

The quote above surfaced before Harry took to Twitter to say:

After the comment didn’t sit too well with the singer’s supporters, Harry responded:

    Jackee, 1st tweet was funny as hell. Why is bow wow, so worried, he could have kept his comments.

    Mya is dope, and has money. She was just having fun. People have forgotten that.

    Book those stages, Mya!!

    LORD Jesus, Fix IT! (Insert Phaedra .gif)

    Yall not gon come for Mya, She still holds a Grammy, And if she is smart, she would capitalize off all this negative press she is getting lately. Lord knows these underground EP’s shes been releasing just arent garnering enough buzz for her to stay that relevant on the scene

    • Stav January 29, 2015

      Shut up. Everything you post is either obnoxious, reads stupid or both. “Yall not gon come for Mya.” ::: blank stare at you ::: Seriously?! What did you score on the SATs, you buffoon?

      • FutureCiara January 29, 2015

        @FAF…I’ve already draaaaaaaggged you twice this week. You should not be talking, especially since your name stands for Fake A** Fλggot.

    • britneyraycarey January 29, 2015

      Those EP’s are amazing. These hating ass f*** do nothing but try to degrade someone who has money and was once relevant. Why would she become a stripper? Don’t people have a brain to realize that if she REALLY needed money, there are more ways she can do it and make MORE money? She’s f****** MYA! These idiots tired tbh

  3. 2nd Taylor Swift Stan (so ready for the 1989 Tour to slay me hard) January 29, 2015

    Chile, she did that for fun…….and probably some attention. Just because the girl is no longer relevant and so broke she gotta wear quick-fix cheap yaki weaves dont mean she stripping. “Fallen” was my song though and I love the music video. It reminded me of the video for “Rock the boat” in the bath tub scene.

  4. Mimi January 29, 2015

    Ugh, I can’t stand Bow Wow with his Napoleon syndrome Rat looking ass. Anyway, let Mya live, i’m sure it’s all for fun.

  5. J Best January 29, 2015

    DEAD. Ms Jackee truly is a comedian

  6. Sherry January 29, 2015

    Why are people acting like they care about mya all of a sudden? Lol she hasn’t released an album in like a decade. Let her do her!

    • IHATEjohnvidal January 29, 2015

      no shade sis, but she’s released multiple albums since 2005

      • Sherry January 29, 2015

        Oop. I don’t recall. The last album of hers that I remember was Moodring.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig formerly ‘HBIC_MamaPope’ January 29, 2015

        In Japan only, so sorry, wrong door try the next one

  7. TheElusiveLamb January 29, 2015

    First thing is first since today is TBT, does anyone remember when we had a variety of R&B females to pick from… Amerie, Brandy, Christina Milian, Ashanti, Monica, Mýa, Beyoncé, JLO, Tweet (best solo album… Southern Hummingbird was my fav from all of these besides Moodring & Full Moon) and so many more around the early 2000’s? Good times.

    Anyway, I think people are crazy. Mýa was probably performing as usual and decided to do a strip tease bc she was performing in a strip club. It makes sense. However, with all of this buzz maybe she should release new music. I thought her last EP was cute.

    • tits mcgee January 29, 2015

      Yass honey! More artist with better material, back then. Good times, indeed. 🙂

  8. DanYiel Teflon January 29, 2015

    I Live for Jackee Harry & Mya!! Live & Let HAVE!!

  9. FutureCiara January 29, 2015

    Atleast she kept those dance moves where they belong, In a strip joint. Where as others bring their sluttyy stripper moves to national TV, into millions of family unit living rooms.

    Leave her alone, she was having fun!

    • Prismatic January 29, 2015

      Are you referring to Ciara’s “ride” video?

      • #TeamTinashe Stan January 29, 2015

        Yup…… and many others.

    • let’s be real January 29, 2015

      Are u kidding me?we all remember ciara SIMULATING S** on stage WITH chris brown lol gtfoh

  10. Fancy BISH January 29, 2015

    Quick! Everybody get in the car and go save Mya from dat pole! lol, STAWWWP 😉 #UpJumpsMyButt

  11. Vandrea January 29, 2015

    *Shrugs* If that’s what she needs to do to pay the bills, then it is what it is.

  12. #TeamTinashe Stan January 29, 2015

    Everyone knows that Mya was a low key ho that is just lost and needs to be found but it really is crazy how her work has been going unnoticed during these times. You mention, the Aaliyah’s, Monica and Brandy’s but never Myà. The only time she gets a mention is when people talk about “Moulin Rouge.” I’m still interested in a come back from her along with the Amerie’s and Ashanti’s.

    • LEGENDARY BIITCHES January 29, 2015

      Bullshiit Hooe……Mya had a successful career from 98 to 03/04. Mya could sing a dance, something the others couldnt. So talk facts first before you starting typing BS like Tunashiit.

      • LEGENDARY BIITCHES January 29, 2015


      • #TeamTinashe Stan January 29, 2015

        My whole comment was about her work going “unnoticed” and that is facts but clearly your mind can’t manage to read and comprehend at the same time. Just like a true Sįssy stan. Remain getting clocked.

        P.s I love how you’re hiding your identity from me. I feel special 😀

      • Brian310 January 30, 2015

        Lies…those 3 could out sing Mya.

    • let’s be real January 29, 2015

      Tunashiiiit aint nothin but a Mya reboot so what you mean sis?

      • britneyraycarey January 29, 2015

        she really is. Tinashe is practically Mya’s own Ariana Grande, aka Mariah Carey’s clone

  13. blue January 29, 2015

    was watching Chicago yesterday…what happened to this girl? She more than anyone had everything to make it big

  14. ~The Arcade~ January 29, 2015

    Although Mya has been doing these kind of performances for years, it just looks crazy cos people think she’s washed up when they see footage like this. She’s owns her own independent label “Planet 9” and actually released the “K.I.S.S” album in 2011 and then the “Sweet XI” EP in Feb. 2014. I think she should definitely capitalize off of this publicity, in order for her to be revered again for her talent.

    • ~The Arcade~ January 29, 2015

      *Sweet XVI” oops 🙂

  15. sleazy January 29, 2015

    tinashe and had to go pop for money perry fans need to have a seat… bow wow aint you broke and needed 106 to save your bank account

  16. Mark111 January 29, 2015

    Does Bow Wow even have a job? Everyone will point their finger as if they didn’t do anything strange for some change to even get into the entertainment world. People act like she was on the corner giving BJ’s.

    • Essa January 29, 2015

      Um, Bow Wow was just cast as a regular on a new CSI spinoff opposite Patricia Arquette, James Van Der Beek and Luke Perry. I’d say that’s more impressive than Mya’s pole riding and generic self-released EPs that no one’s heard of.

  17. FutureCiara January 29, 2015

    What you wont do, is you WONT compare Ciara’s Ride music Video to these strip shows performed on live TV.
    There is a difference.
    When your portraying an emotion while being provacative and giving life to the lyrics by acting it out in a music video or choreographed live performance then that becomes much more different than performing strip teases for any size audience including children. Music Videos provide artist a platform to express the way they feel.

    Beside RIDE reached #3 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart in the US, And became Ciara’s 12th top ten hit on the chart. The music video was sexually charged, provocative choreography, and salty BET did not air it because she was a woman, yet allowed Trey Songz’ “Neighbors Know My Name” and “I Invented S**”.

    RIDE peaked at #42 on the Hot 100 and was the number-one most added song on urban radio. With over 84mill vevo views views as well.

    As for the Chris Brown and Ciara performance on the BET awards a while back, How TF did you expect them to dance to such a song as “Take You Down”.

    Stop being corny and pressedT by replying to EVERY single on of my comments I make on TGJ.

    • FutureCiara January 29, 2015

      This comment was not directed at Mya, I understand she was having fun at a strip club.

    • Ren January 29, 2015

      You are a f*****.

  18. Sean January 29, 2015

    Shes’ a trained dancer we all know that…pole dancing is a form of dancing there’s classes for it…not to mention its good for the body…always loved Mya, and Bow Wow needs to find a new bottom to f*** since Omarion is taken now

  19. Mya Carey January 29, 2015

    Mya should release a single now and promote it all over twitter and IG. This press can potentially get her another glimpse on the Billboard 200. Either that, or she should do a reality TV show to get her some exposure. She doesn’t seem to care tho, she’d rather do it by herself. But she needs a ladder to get up there again!

  20. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig formerly ‘HBIC_MamaPope’ January 29, 2015

    I’m sorry but that bish werked that pole like the rent was due, and the landlord was accepting dollar bills only! She did da damn ting! Lets not forget that Mya laid groundwork for all of the breathey-voiced-singers-with-tiny-voices, you deserves props ma

  21. Junior in Jamaica January 29, 2015

    I will ALWAYS love Mya, questionable appearance and all. She’s the complete package.

  22. Kelendria January 29, 2015

    Her fat ass need to worry about keeping her hands out the damn cookie jar

  23. cs go skins ak March 28, 2016

    Just wished to point out Now i am lucky that i came in your website.|

  24. eric February 1, 2018

    Just because you’ve been doing something for a long time doesn’t mean you should keep doing it, especially after the success of Moodring. And she can say she’s performed in all types of clubs, but in how many was she dancing like this? This was not the smartest way to get attention.
