Hot Shots: Mary J. Blige Debuts New Braids At Essence Festival

Published: Saturday 1st Jul 2017 by Sam

Mary J. Blige has experimented with an array of looks over the course of her illustrious career. And she shows no signs of stopping.

The Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul was snapped at the 2017 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans last night sporting striking braids.

MJB is intimately involved with the spectacle this year. For, beyond performing herself, she has cultivated a “ladies only” night comprised of artists she handpicked. Included on her line-up are Monica and Jazmine Sullivan.

    That’s what happens when you put your trash out. The day Mary put her trash out is the day she began to live her life.

    The obsession with blonde hair.

    • llawrence July 1, 2017

      I hear you, I never understood why black women would wear it, but I guess the men in their life love it.

      • Suicide Blonde July 1, 2017

        I think men are attracted to blondes but only if they’re white, most men love black women because of their natural looks, but they seem not to understand that.

      • llawrence July 1, 2017

        You might be right.

      • I HATE WHITE n BLACK BIT..,,,HES July 1, 2017

        Because some black women look pretty with blonde hair doesn’t mean that a black woman should never ever in her life ever wear any caramel or yellow highlights to her hair ever….live ya life

      • Suicide Blonde July 1, 2017

        I didn’t say they shouldn’t wear light colors, it just that blonde hair seems to be their favorite. I’m a natural blond, platinum blond to be exact (almost white), actually all my body hair is white blond, almost invisible, and I think is funny how they all seem to prefer blonde hair of all hair colors.

        what about the black women wearing the pink hair…… the green hair……. the blue hair ……..the Latino girls hair blonde pink red blue things of that nature….. majority black women have naturally black hair…… let them live their lives

        What did I say in my comment that made you think I had a problem with blonde hair? I wear my hair natural and I have no problem what a woman wears on her head.

    • Yes July 1, 2017

      They wear it because they feel like it. It’s not that serious.

      As for Suicide blonde, you’re always alluding everything towards race, one way or another. To put it quite simply, you’re a race baiting, insecure, mongoliod looking, annoying dolt. Basically, just stfu.

      • Suicide Blonde July 1, 2017

        Lol, yout don’t even know how I look, you want my instagram?

      • Yes July 1, 2017

        No thank.

      • Yes July 1, 2017

        I don’t have to know what you look like, because you reek of ugly. And the fact that you only pointed that out, confirms how insecure you are as well.
        1-Ugly: βœ”
        2- Insecure: βœ”
        3- Race baiter: βœ”

    Dope! She looks fierce!

  9. llob taylor July 2, 2017

    I love Mary J but it’s looking more and more she’s gone back to the old days when she had some gawd awful rachet looks. She looked crappy at the BET awards and the braids (gold ???ffs) are not a good look.
    Her album too is a huge disappointment.

  10. Greenas keane July 2, 2017

    Mary J has natural talent, she neednt be going around trashing every and I mean every man she’s every been in a relationship with. If they were so bad why did she pick them first time around? Why did she stick around? Just playing to negative stereotypes about black men. What a hypocrite. All this just to sell albums. I expected more from her.

    she looks so bomb
