Brand new commercial of Burger King chicken wrap surfaced the internet yesterday, but people were not happy. The fact that Mary J Blige was in the commercial singing, “crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, ranch dressing, wrapped up in a tasty flour tortilla,” to the tune of her latest “Don’t Mind” single cause public outraged. A lot of the audience found it very stereotypical and were disappointed that Mary J Blige would agree to be a part of it.
Even entrepreneur and author Steve Stoute shared his disappointment on Twitter: “The issue with the burger king commercial is that these agencies visit culture and then do work that is so in authentic it’s embarrassing.”
Word is that MJB was paid $2 million dollars for the ad campaign. Other celebrities participating in the campaign are David Beckham, Selma Hayek and Jay Leno.
Starting from today the commercial with Mary J Blige was removed from Burger King’s YouTube hub. In case you missed it, jump inside to see the commercial and share your thoughts. Continue reading →

For our Throwback Tuesdays, I decided to post one of my favorite songs of all time “I Want You” by one and only Marvin Gaye.

It’s not very unusual for celebrities to pull off inexpensive outfits with expensive accessories. LaLa Anthony decided to opt for a very simple look with a twist. She was recently spotted rocking KMart’s tunnel belt dress for only $17.49 and it’s still available, by the way. Her choice of shoes, however, was slightly more expensive. LaLa rocked $995 Christian Louboutin Summerisma sandals. Huge price difference, although I like both items, together they don’t go that well. What do you think? Take a closer look below.
