      Vibe Strikes Back at Blige



      [San Francisco Chronicle]

      Vibe Strikes Back at Blige

      The editor of Vibe magazine has hit back at Mary J. Blige after the R&B
      star slammed the publication at last weekend's Vibe Awards.
      The singer thanked Mimi Valdes for the Vlegend Award she was presented
      with at the bash, but proceeded to embarrass the magazine bestowing the
      prize, by criticizing its recent cover photo of her.

      At the ceremony Blige said, "For so many years, Vibe has given me
      great, great, great covers, but I must say, I'm very, very disappointed
      at the cover this time, so Mimi, me and you really need to talk, as women.
      No disrespect, but I really hated the way you guys shaved off my head,
      pushed my forehead way back behind my ears. I'm just insulted."
      Valdes angrily denies tampering with the picture and is furious at the
      manner in which Blige made "a private conversation public."

      She writes in a letter on Vibe.com, "Dissing Vibe while accepting our
      VLegend Award was extremely disappointing. I'm sorry you find your most
      recent cover insulting. It was definitely not our intention.
      "Besides your desire to make a private conversation public, your
      accusations are untrue. How your hair looks on that cover is between
      you and your hairstylist. I swear, your hairline is no different than the
      Polaroids you saw at the shoot or the snapshots we printed in my What's
      Good column.

      "I'd be lying not to admit how hurt we were by the negativity you
      brought to our celebration, especially since you were being honored."

      Hotep Sistah Jahness- and family!,
      Interesting thread...i did hear that Sistah Mary J. has an attitude problem of sorts, and this is not the 1st time i have heard that she made insulting remarks to the people she works with, really...seeing that she was being honoured-it was out of place. she could have used more discretion in her approach, but that is just my personal opinion!!


      SANKOFA!,
      Kentake.

      I agree with Mary......that picture on the cover of the mag was horrible made her look old and crackheadish i had to do a double take when i saw it like wtf is that? that picture was almost as bad as the covers on sister 2 sister mag it looked cheap and unflattering as for her dissing them at the awards show if she don't like how something went down then go to the source and if the source ain't tryin to hear what you saying ,by all means put that shit on blast when Mary has been on the previous covers she looks right but for some reason this cover shot did her dirty

      Greetings kentake, Shawn & BLackIsPower!

      Welcome to the discussion everyone.

      Sister Kentake I don't follow what Mary do or don't do to any great extent. I can't really say when Mary looks good or when she looks bad in all honesty because I really do not keep up with much of what she does.

      At the same time she is an artist, and as we all know exposure is everything, especially how they look physically for their fans. So In that respect I can see why she may be upset. If I am not sure and please correct me if I am wrong, did Mary have certain problems with using drugs in the past? If this is true that is another reason if she has cleaned up her act why she really does want her best photo to be out there representing her.

      Sometimes we all may have to keep in mind that even though the she is getting an award, maybe they should have consulted here before they used the particular pic they did of her. If Mary lacks self confidence because of her personal problems in the past, any tpe of negativity about her will make her defensive, justified or not. Again this is my opinion, seeing I am not an expert of any of the Mary's lol

      Shawnfury2003 thanks for requesting the pic it does shed more light on the topic. For people that follows the career of Mary as an artist they may know what Mary looks and decide if the photo does her justice.

      BlackIsPower much appreciation to you for posting the pic that is so relevent to the discussion.

      Much appreciation for everyones contributions in this discussion

      Stay Blessed!
