Mary J. Blige was feeling extra charitable the other day while shopping in New York’s Diane von Furstenberg store. Mary apprently overheard a shopper who was there to pick up a dress on hold. The chick “mistakenly” thought the dress being held was $500, but in fact it was $900 (you know how those 9’s and 5’s sound alike over the phone…) Anyway…she couldn’t afford the balance. Well….Ms. Moneybags decides to help out the poor stranger by giving her the difference on the dress.
Blige told the saleswoman, “Go get the girl. I want to pay for the balance on the dress.” The customer at first declined Blige’s offer but relented after the singer said, “I know what it’s like to want something and not be able to have it. I insist.” The customer wanted to send her a check for the balance, but Blige said, “Just enjoy it. I’m blessed, so let me do this.” (Source)
I commend Mary…but the chick was there buying a $500 dress, so I’m almost certain that she wasn’t like STARVING or anything. But hey….it’s Mary’s money and it was a very sweet gesture. I’m just hoping to run into Mary at the gas station. This dayum Bentley’s a b*tch to fill up…. 😕
Young Buck called up his former boss, 50 cent to beg and plead for his job back. This is especially surprising since dude was just on video days ago yelling “fuck G-Unit” and saying that 50 can’t come to his ‘hood. 😕 I almost feel sorry for Buck cause you can hear the intensity in his voice when he’s admitting to Fiddy that he’s gotten “out of line”…
Real talk…dude cried like a bitch on the phone to another dude. In the infamous words of Riley from the Boondocks… “These Niggas is GAY!”
I noticed a McCain advertisement on my site the other day and I was ALMOST pissed off. Until I realized that if he wants to pay for a spot on this site, I’ll take the money but I’m gonna dayum well make sure that everyone knows whose side I’m on. Then I re-thought my position and blocked the ads. The money just ain’t worth it.
…even when given a 2nd chance to do the right thing, McCain still chose to vote “No.”
