Keyshia Cole Meets Mary J. Blige / Quashes Rivalry Rumors

Published: Monday 9th Nov 2015 by Sam

Since the onset of Keyshia Cole‘s career, comparisons to Mary J. Blige have been a constant. Indeed, so rife has the chatter been that it birthed rumors of a rift between the R&B staples.

The climate wasn’t altogether helped when Cole said the following about “her idol” in a 2012 interview:

“I’m very happy to have been compared to such a wonderful woman, a strong woman. The only thing that I would’ve changed, that I am now here to do for those that come after me, is to lend a helping hand. I feel that even if it’s not me saying I’m gonna record with you, I’m gonna work with you or let’s go hang out or anything like that; we don’t have to be friends, but at the end of the day, being able to give advice or help somebody that is coming under you is an amazing gift to be able to have. I wish I would have had that from Mary, but I’m not Mary, I’m a different person and if K. Michelle ever call me or anybody for that matter, for advice, I would absolutely give it to them.”

Nonetheless, proving that there’s no bad blood, Keyshia and the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul caught up backstage at a concert last night.

Clearly touched by the encounter (said to be their first), Cole captioned the snap:

I have so much ❤️ and respect for her!!! #SheWasInChillMode#AfterTheshowPic #LoveHer#YouGuysHaveNoIdeaWhatThisMeantToMe

    Two hoodrats… Bey and Ci look 100xtimes better than them ki

      Mary is the undisputed QUEEN of Hip Hop/Soul and her resume speaks for itself. She’s not bothered by Beyonce and definitely not bothered by somebody who hasn’t a platinum or gold album since 2007. Bloop.

      • ????Queen Molly???? November 9, 2015

        Mary is nothing more than a ghetto old hoeee that gave 90s hoodrats something to bop to that’s all. Bey is a legend and Ci is this generations Janet Jackson. Bye!

      I don’t usually come to your post but Mary and Keyshia are women that made a contribution to music just like the rest of the female artists. This putting and tearing down other artists is unnecessary and some of you fans do too much just to be hip with the “shade bandwagon. People need to support the music and leave that other s*** alone.

    I love you Molly, but Uh uh… I’ma leave it alone cause you mauh GOOD sista.
    Motha Mary J is a QUEEN! I was just enjoying ha discography last night. Every single one of her albums from the 1990s is R&B perfection from beginning to end. “My Life & What’s The 411” will ALWAYS be in heavy rotation up in my household. Shoot, “No Mo’ Drama & Love/Life” was cute… But, truth be told Mary’s & Mariah’s (and now that I think about it MADONNA’s) last great albums were released in 2005.
    The Breakthrough was solid from top to bottom. I actually think Mary’s “Breakthrough” was far more superior than Mimi’s “Emancipation”. Both, classic R&B body’s of work tho.
    As for the ghetto h** standing next to the QUEEN OF R&B/HIP-HOP-SOUL… Well, she’s NEVER captured me. She’s had a few great moments but overall she’s take it or leave it… I thought it was cute how she replayed that Faith Evan’s & Biggie’s hotel seen last year wit ha baby daddy. Too bad, no one cared tho. Album was overlooked wit da quickness. Cute pic. BYE

    2 bad it’ll neva change the stans fighting and etc. Go to YouTube rite now… you’ll still c Beyoncè vs. Rihanna, Whitney vs. Mariah, JLO vs. Mariah, Ciara vs. Rihanna, Toni vs. Anita, Britney vs. Christina, and etc. stans going in on these ladies and each other 4 no reason all bc the media brainwashed them to, but I’m happy 2 c K & MJB cool.

    • ????Queen Molly???? November 9, 2015

      Don’t pretend like you aren’t one of the causes ki

      • What now November 9, 2015

        I ain’t the cause of s***.

  4. Ciah’s Turtle November 9, 2015

    This is cute for them. I’m Gagging over the fact that Keyshia looks cute with this pink hair.

  5. Barb-wire November 9, 2015

    Mess… MJB still Queen tho!

  6. cocobutta November 9, 2015

    Nice photo. Keyshia looking nice in that outfit with the hair colour.

  7. Taylor Tori Azalea November 9, 2015

    Those wiigs tho……..

  8. Danny Bey November 9, 2015

    Keyshia’s hair is gonna fall out by age 35 if she keeps dying it every shade of Starburst.

  9. 4everBrandy_Ci November 9, 2015

    Mary and Keyshia are QUEENS. I love seeing my boos come together and slay! I wanted to see them in concert but I’ll check the out another time! 😉

    Is a Ciara fan calling someone a hood rat? Umm, Ciara is no crossover act, the Princess of CRUNK N B only had success because of the ATL/crunk music movement in 2003 to 2006, oh look, the only time Ciara had top 10 hits, lol.

    MC’s last few albums are very good.

      As much as I dislike M, I’ll let u have that for the most part. The Elusive Whatever was really good. The 08 album that came out around the same time Hard Candy – I only listened to it bc Madonna liked it – was a great record. Excluding The Emancipation, I don’t like or remember anything about her albums up to Butterfly, but I love the Rainbow album cover. I knew I was gay af whenI tried to emulate that cover. KIIIII

      • King Stephy November 9, 2015

        Stop lying. You know Mariah’s albums fromt too back. Talmbout, I only listened to the 08 album cause it was called a good record by Madonna. Smh… I wish you would keep it 100%. And, stop acting like you don’t like Mariah. You know her front & back. You may fool these other idiots on this blog, but I ain’t fooled by ya. Remember, WE TALKED before. You know EVERYTHING about Mariah. EVERYTHING…

      • What now November 9, 2015

        KIIII! Oh Stephy, one day u and others will c that I literally mind f*** the hell out of all of u, but until u realize that, continue believing whatevs u THINK u know. 😉
