: Looks like the Queen of R&B Soul may have a little one on the way. One of Mary J Blige's relatives confirmed to MediaTakeOut.com that the platinum-selling artist and her husband Kendu Isaacs are expecting their first child.
Mary's kin told MediaTakeOut.com exclusively, "We just found out about [the pregnancy] yesterday and everyone's happy about it.". The family member continued, "Mary and [Kendu] have been trying to get pregnant for close to a year and [they] did it .... They're very blessed in so many ways."
The 36 year old Mary has been married to Kendu for nearly four years. In the past, the entertainer claimed that she wanted 2 kids with her husband. Well, she's almost half way there. Congratulations Mary!!!
I HOPE IT WILL NOT END UP HOOKED ON DRUGS AND SHIT LIKE THE JUNKIE ASS MOTHER...
WHAT A JOKE!!!!!
AND THAT SHIT FACED VOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DAMN MARY, JUST DAMN!!!!!!!!!!
OH YEAH, CONGRADULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG!!!! I'm so happy for her. I've watched Mary's life unfold from the drugs to no more drama and i feel like i know her personally thru her music she's touched so many including me with the "i'm not gon cry" to "real talk" to her #1 album last yr. I'm really happy for her. She's definatel come a long way. LOVE U MJB
Ya congrats, what is she 40! Sometimes I think it is a lil selfish for these people to have babies this old! The risk for down syndrome and other abnormalities goes way up! If you dont believe me google risks of an older woman conceiving
She sung about she want to be happy well now she is. Congradulation to you Mary. This is one Mother that will definately take care of her child. It's good to have kids through marriage because it's more exceptional to feel the baby was conceived out of unconditional love, as apose to having a child out of wedlock... most of the time those relationships always end with the guy claiming to not being the father and the woman is stuck for 18 yrs. struggling by herself. So if anybody deserves happinest it's definately got to be Mrs. Mary J. Blige.
G'mornin MTO friends n' fam
Let's hope the baby looks more like its momma...
that's all I'm sayin!
And hopefully it won't be born addicted to something too
@BlackLAPrincess: yes I have heard that weird song I even have it on my page's Youtube player
@Uwesizzy...WOW that's so messed up to say. I know 1st hand how difficult it can b for some women to get preggers and after trying i'm sure she feels nothing but joy over this beautiful blessing. I'm sure nothing is more rewarding then this, espeically after u tried and tried. I'm sure she's getting the best prenatal care money can buy and i know several women who had kids at 30+ and moms and babies r healthy and happy.
congratulations, Mary 36 is not too old to have a baby @ least you are more calmer @ this point in your life and god knows you have enough finances to take care of your baby , God blessed you and your husband with this child @ this time in your life , Turn your back on the haters and love your child that God blessed you with.
I cant believe how people are being so rude. She has been clean for years now. Congrats to you Mary and Kendu I am happy for you that you waited until you were happily married and in love to conceive your child. Be blessed and forget about the stupid people
I am so happy for Mary and her husband. All children are blessings, and I know that she is so excited after trying for over a year. Congrats!!
For all of you haters bringing up pass issues and putting out negativaty about different child defects, since when was 30+ too old to have a child? Wow, I thought that was when you should start planning are at least when you're financially and emotionally mature enough to handle a baby. I think alot of babies will have better chances at life if more mothers followed mary's lead.
OH MARY CONGRATS !!! I LOVE YOU TO DEATH, MAY YOU REAP ALL THE BLESSING GOD HAS IN STORE FOR YOU !!! GOD BLESS GIRL, YOUR HUSBAND & THAT NEW BUNDLE OF JOY & DO YO THANG !!! (I THINK IT'S A GIRL) OXOXOXOXO
HAPPY THURSDAY EVERYONE!!!
This is truly a blessing! I am so excited for her (if MTO didn't jump the gun, who is this "kin" tellin info fresh off the press??)!! I cosign with Peaches83, Mary has come a long way and I think this is the point in her life where she is completely ready for a child. This is a beautiful thing! Congratualtions!
CONGRATS TO THE BOTH OF THEM. SHE REALLY DESERVES IT, GOD WILL CONTINUE TO BLESS HER AND FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE SAYING SHES TOO OLD.WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GUYS SAYING DIDNT MARCIA CROSS IN DESPERARE HOUSEWIVWES GIVE BIRTH AT THE AGE OF 44. WE ARE VERY HAPPY FOR HER,, DONT COME HERE AND BE WRITING SENSELESS THINGS LIKE SHES TOO OLD.
YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...I HOPE GOD BLESSES HER AND HER HUSBAND WITH A BEAUTIFUL AND HEALTHY BABY!!!
SHE HAS BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH AND HAS OVERCOME EVERY OBSTACLE...I AM 100% CONVINCED SHE WILL MAKE A WONDERFUL MOTHER AS SHE MAKES A WONDERFUL WIFE!!!
GQ..U ARE ABOUT TO START SOME SHIT UP IN HERE!! U WILL GET BEAT DOWN TALKING ABOUT MARY!!! LOL
SERIOUSLY THATS MY GIRL AND I NEED TO HEAR THIS FROM A MORE RELIABLE SOURCE THAN MTO!
Classybuttafly..MULTIPLE PREGNANCIES ARE COMMON IN OLDER WOMEN BECAUSE OF FERTILITY TREATMENTS..
Kendu has that look on his face looking at Mary with that giant blonde wig on like:
You are a goddam freak of a messed on negroe, but business is business"
I couldnt look at my Black Queen in her eyes like that with her in a big blonde wig and pretend I was happy with that...The fact that he is content to have his woman look like a freak shows that he , himself is not much of a man...
I hear so many brothers say "Those fake ass weaves and wigs are stupid" but how many have the balls to turn down a sister for wearing fake hair, even if he otherwise finds her attractive?
I used to tell permed sisters all the time before I got married that I dont date sisters with permed or artificial hair...
Brothers will be surprised how many sisters are waiting for us to tell them iits okay to rock their natural beauty...But women are very insecure beings and if they see brothers still going for the fake sisters, they feel they must remain fake also just to keep up with the status quo...
I AM SO HAPPPPYYYY FOR HER. SOME OF YOU ARE JUST PLAIN IGNORANT SOMETIMES. JUST BECAUSE SHE WAITED TO GET HER LIFE TOGETHER, FIND A MAN THAT MAKES HER HAPPY AND TRULY LOVES HER, AND IS FEELING GOOD ABOUT HERSELF TO BRING A CHILD INTO THIS WORLD YALL TRYING TO SPOIL IT BE BEING IGNORANT. BUT IF SHE WOULD OF STILL BEEN ON DRUGS AND LEAVING HER BABIES AT HER MOTHERS HOUSE YALL COULD RELATE HUH. ASSHOLES
Tell it, Brighteyes. If this is so, that I'm very happy for MJB. She went through hell and high water and now that she has some stability in her life God blessed her with what she's able to handle right now.
It just sickened me as a black man to see this picture of Kendu and Mary...
Mary is in a big ass silly blonde wig and Kendu has this look on his face like "I like what Im seeing"...And Mary has this look like "Im cute in my blode wig"...
For a black man to like the fact his woman has no self esteem, makes him less than a black man in my humble opinion...
I feel sorry for any child who will enter the this realm through them cause they are going to be just as confused as they are...
LIKE I ALWYAS SAY.."A CHILD IS ONE OF LIFE BIGGEST & GREATEST BLESSINGS"..CONGRATS TO THEM,MAY THE LORD BLESS THEM WITH BEAUTIFUL & HEALTHY BUNDLES OF JOY:) HOPE THE RUMORS ON THEM PERHAPS SPLITTING UP AREN'T TRUE.
@ Uncle Tom-
U sound so stupid..Mary has come along way from where she used to be, and instead of you sitting here being an adult about it....you want to talk about her weave/wig game. Get a life homie. It sickened me reading such a dumb comment that you wrote. Why would feel sorry for the child.. We should be feeling sorry for you, cause you sound pretty miserable. Be happy not a Hater.-Hater-
Any who.. I am happy for MJB, she has grown into a beautiful woman with a very good career. She deserves Happiness!
LOL @ uncle Tom saying he didn't date girl with perms...(that's why you are single now..lol)
@Uncle_Tom, what about those old white ladies that have medium blonde hair and go to platinum blonde then have their daughters do the same thing. So u have the mother looking old and haggard and the daughters looking the same way. So it really doesn't matter what skin color u r EVERYBODY wants to look like something else
Mary self esteem is not measure by the wig she has on her head. Kendu and Mary are very much involved into church. She said time and time again my husband is the reason why I have a closer relationship with God I love God with all my heart that is where my strength come.
She also went on to say no man controls her or runs her life. She would never tolerate that. Mary has made bad choices and mistakes so be it its all part of life and growing. I'm proud that she is no longer on drugs or doing the negative things in her life from her past.
She has now made a transtition from the streets to the family life and thats something to talk about.
I am not concerned with white people and what they do...Im concerned first and foremost with my people...I'll leave the worrying about white folks to you...
Look at that picture again...No real black man can look at his Black Queen with a silly white prostitute wig/weave (whatever the hell that is on that poor childs head) and NOT say: "Baby, you need to go into the bathroom and take that shyt off your head, you are embarrasing yourself, you are embarrasing me and you are embarrasing black people everywhere"
How can a real black man let his wife even come out of the house like that...If you want to have wigs and stuff to play around with sexual role playing to keep your marriage fresh , thats one thing...But to come out iin public like that?
Oh hell to the naw....Not with me...
All these brothers claim they dont want our women wearing fake weaves and wigs/perms, but they dont have the balls to shun these sisters until they come out in public and represent the black race and not the white race...
So in fact they are enabling them much like a famile would enable an alcholic and their illness, by not confronting them...
So for a black male who feels that weaves and wigs are embarrassing, but still dates and marries sisters who use them, because they are otherwise still somewhat attracive physically, they ARE LESS THAN A BLACK MAN....Essentially they are black boys.
Sisters are waiting for the black man to stand up and tell them they dont need to wear that shyt on their head anymore to feel beautiful...Their natural beauty is better than the artifical.
Mary hair is no different then Beyonce or Kelly or Toni Braxton even my lil' angel Aaliyah she is a artist. She has people who does her hair for different types of photos and shoots.
So what she like weave so be it. Does that make her fake?. No her heart is in the right place thats all that seems to matter to Kendu correct.
Its clear her man is not unhappy with her looks its clear he like for his woman looking tight and nice. To be honest most people need that stuff to keep it real because many of them aren't that cute to began with.
I find beauty to be within there is nothing wrong with hair, makeup, eyelashes, wigs or whatever it thats what you choose what matter the most are you real deep within.
Not all people who wear natural hair have high self-esteem or intelligent or have a sense of direction regarding life. If people are more focus on external beauty theb they will never realize the true essence of beauty is not external but internal....That Real Talk....
The church is just s bad as being a drug addict/crackwhore...
Belief in an invisible God who does nothing for you is mind control wrapped up in religion..
Religions are man made...The bible and Qur'an are manmade and the Vatican CREATED CHRISTIANITY..Not some fictional character names Jesus....
Religion is another reason why black people have not made any real progress ...We are the most religious people on earth and everyone comes to this country and gets rich off of us economically...Everybody takes advantage of the fact that religions teaches you to be economically and racially DOCILE and a walking mat for people who have the sense to keep it real, and create Institutions for their children to inherit wealth instead of goddam old bibles signed by grandma...
Uncle_Tom u full of sh1t, i only read ur 1st comment and ur a liar, i remember clearly in the past someone asked u have u dated a sista with fake or permed hair and u said YES. Now ur saying something totally different. U have lost all of her black power points.
what's good playa playa......
you already after those tired ass Mary fans tried to hype er up, it was my job to get it popping, lol. I am not a hater, she is good at what she does.... whatever that is!!!
All you brothers on here, Im going to ask you a real question:
Yall wouldnt be embarrassed to go out in public with your woman with a big fake blonde wig/weave(whatever that shyt is she has on her head) like Mary has in this pic?
You would feel okay to be seen with her in public and not want to hide your face or walk ahead or behind her so people wouldnt think you were with her?
Dont be shy...
90% of African American women wear fake hair in some form so they are dealing with some caliper of man, and I want to dialouge with these brothers and see what is going on in their minds when their women go out in public like this, REPRESENTING YOU !
And yes, sisters, if you are in a relationship, REAL RELATIONSHIP, when you go outside you represent your mate, your children and your family and the same goes for the man...
YOU ARE NOT JUST REPRESENTING YOURSELF.(if you are in a real relationship)
I am sooo happy for Mary J Blige. She has become one of the most talented artists out there, and has also become one of my favorites. She has been making so many hits, back to back, for the past few years. I guess Kendu was proud of her hits and decided to hit it right if you know what I mean ;-). All jokes Mary, congrads!
First of all Sisters are not waiting for NOONE to tell us what to do, because we were told what to do for so long and look where that got us. Most of the NATURAL LOOKING WOMEN were told for years that they needed to change the way the look so they can be more appealing. And who told them that MEN!!!! So now that women want to look the way they want to look they are being fake. I would bet a lot of women wouldn't want to change the way they look if their husbands or boyfriends wouldn't make them insecure by cheating and having affairs. So women have stop listening to what MEN want them to be and doing what the hell they want. Not saying it agrees with most of them, but to each its own.
Sisters are waiting for the black man to stand up and tell them they dont need to wear that shyt on their head anymore to feel beautiful...Their natural beauty is better than the artifical.
you cant stop black power...stop trying.
I never said I NEVER dated women with perms...when i was a teenager if you didnt date a woman with straightened hair, you wasnt going to be dating at all.
@ Uncle Tom
Man you really need to stop at times. Alright Mary wears weaves in her head, so what?! That makes her insecure? You read too much into things sometimes.
Mary is a real woman, and a strong black woman that has been through many a trials and succeeded. Last time I checked she never sold out or went white on us, and she's the only REAL female celebrity that I can honestly say I admire.
the fact that her "man" is not unhappy with his woman with low self esteem shows that he isnt truly concerned with her whole well being ...
Theres alot of pimps who ARENT UNHAPPY seeing their hoes in crazy blonde wigs and revealing clothes because business is business...
There are alot of low self esteem black males WHO ARENT UNHAPPY seeing their black women going to work in corporate offices in tight revealing clothes and "phuck me" 6 inch heels around white men all day just so they can bring home DA MONEY...
Business is business...
Thats exactly why I want to dialouge with the brothers here (not the sisters) to try to get a guage as to what exactly is going on in their minds while they are allowing their women to defile themselves?
WELL CONGRATS 2 MARY AND HER NEW BABY I KNOW THEY ARE BOTH HAPPY AND BITCHES STOP HATIN ON MARY YA'LL JUST MAD CAUSE YOU NOT TALENTED AND MAKING MONEY LIKE SHE IS ALTHOUGH SOMETIMES SHE DO BE ACTING WEIRD AND STUFF STILL IM HAPPY 4 HER AND I HOPE THAT EVERYTHING GOES WELL AND 2 THE IGNORANT ASS BITCHES THAT THINK THAT 36 IS OLD 2 HAVE A BABY SHUT THE FUCK UP CAUSE THATS NOT OLD AT ALL LIKE WHAT SOMEBODY SAID UP ABOVE I THINK THAT SOME WOMEN SHOULD WAIT UNTIL THEY ARE MORE ESTABLISHED AND READY 2 TAKE CARE AND HANDLE A BABY OTHERWISE IF YOU ARE A BABY HAVING A BABY THEN THATS REALLY SAD ESPECAILLY IF YOUR ASS IS BROKE AND YOU DONT HAVE NO HELP AT LEAST IF YOU DID HAVE ONE STOP THERE DONT HAVE ANYMORE IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU DONT HAVE ANY HELP OTHERWISE IF YOU HAVE MORE WITH THAT BEING SAID THEN YOU ARE JUST FUCKIN STUPID PLAIN AND SIMPLE
when I was a child, I thought as a child...
I grew up in a house where women were forbidden to go out without their hair straightened and me seeing this from my formative years, I connected straight hair with BEAUTY, and coarse, thick hair with ugliness....
The difference now is IM AWAKE, and I connected the dots as to HOW WE GOT FROM THERE TO NOW...
I have been ressurected and Im loving it and I love the feeling of freedom that truth gives you...Im high on truth....Im on a Natural High.
@ uncle tom
Its clear you sound like a true Atheism
The traditional Christian view of the Bible is that it was written under the guidance of God and that it therefore conveys truth, either literally or figuratively.
In recent times the view of many Christians has been influenced by the pronouncements of critics this has produced a counteraction in the form of fundamentalism, whose chief emphasis has been on the literal inerrancy of the Bible.
The interpretation of the Bible is one of the traditional points of difference between Protestants, who believe that the Scriptures speak for themselves, and Roman Catholics, who hold that the church has ultimate authority in the interpretation of the Scriptures.
Now all that being said I believe in God. I believe in the God that created Universe. I do not feel I feel out the sky and was just brought here in existence by chance or hope. I believe God created each and every single human being living creature living today.
Now as far as being a judge:
1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
6"Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.
So wouldn't u think that the women back then were straightening their hair so they could fit in too. I wasn't about being ashamed of the heritages it was about adapting to their life curcimstances at that time. So why is it different now? I see a lot of NATURAL WOMEN with makeup, tweezed eyebrows, etc. It has nothing to do with self esteem all the time, its about personal preferences. Doesn't take away with their natural beauty, but enhancing it.
my posts are written under the direct guidance of God....
You need to print my posts out and become my prophet and spread the word...
Let it be printed...Let it be done!
Now I can neithe confirm or deny this but I want you to believe in me baby...Believe in your Uncle Tom...I love you, now go out and preach my gospel and bring me back da money.
Wow! There's a lot going on in here. Now, I've forgotten what the thread was about. Let me scroll back up........Oh yeah! Congratulations Mary and Kendu! I didn't know Kendu was ugly and short. Hope the baby is a cutie but I'm a little worried.
ALRIGHT NOW! WATCH YO MOUTH!! I WILL FIGHT TO THA DEATH ABOUT MY GIRL MARY!! NOW I BOWED DOWN TO U ABOUT WHITNEY.............I KNOW U GONE BACK UP ON MY GIRL!
HOW IS THA MOST HANDSOMEST ( I KNOW IT AINT A WORD) MAN IN FLORIDA?
I truly believe that you are full of it, and I bet you are getting paid by MTO to come in and cause drama, with your ridiculous opinions , and yes I did say OPINIONS, No fact or truth.
Since your first post in here you've downed Mary, and black women in general, but I think I know why. Its b'cuz your so called all natural wife is white....isn't she. Its alright, that would explain all the negativity you have inside for black women. If you had your way we would all be destroyed huh, just fake right.
It's sad that you dont believe in God b'cuz He could really help you with your anger issues, so I'll pray for you.
MJB, I love You!
P.S. Have A Blessed Day!
Yea, you wont have faith im me because my skin is too dark to believe in and my hair is too kingly...
But some spaghetti benders in Italy(the Vatican, the Holy City LOL) can run all kinds of UNSUBSTANTIATED game on you and you accept it sight unseen...
I see how it goes...
@ Aunt Tom
U start a half azz conversation then when someone challenges u, u start talking crap. I just wanted to see where some of ur theories came from but i see they came from where the rest of the shyt comes from.
Congrats on the baby (if its true)!
I was never a big fan of Mary’s one or two songs have grown on me but not my cupa tea...That look she has the blond hair and pale makeup turns me off and the songs sometimes depresses me...
@ UNCLE TOM u sound ANGRY, CROSS, MISERABLE reading your post is very draining :(
Is this who you are? u must be very lonely, this must be ur last stop for meeting potential friends huh?
I know you are a cucasian male, and you offended every black woman that posted. Everyone has an opinion but your words hurt and degrade. I think you are seeking attention because you are hurt yourself. Mary J. is Beautiful regardless of what color her wig or weave is. That's the beauty of women of color. Too bad I can't speak for your the kind of women you date. And may God forgive you for your poor knowledge of Bible Truth.
WOW! such ignorance. how can one say that they care bout there people when u are down talkin them. who are you to judge anyone? your not God... mary is a beautiful woman... so what if she wears weave... so the fuck what.... her hair does not make her the person that she is. if you're not feelin someone u dont waste your time talkin about them.... u make yourself look like a moron. she is a successful BLACK woman. she is the QUEEN of R&B..... u think her hair got her that.. abosolutly not.... her soul her voice and just bein real got her that.... her shows are always sold out... not because of her hair because of her GOD given talent... so how about you be real, get a life and move on... go do something positive with yourself.... stop worryin about what everyone else is doin and mind your business.... if your about your people u say... congrats.....keep it movin
I come back from lunch and i c my girl brighteyes handling Uncle_Tom
Uncle_Tom, what about ur parents, they didn't teach u anything u said "when I was a child, I thought as a child...
I grew up in a house where women were forbidden to go out without their hair straightened and me seeing this from my formative years, I connected straight hair with BEAUTY, and coarse, thick hair with ugliness".
What the hell was ur parents doing?They didn't teach u anything growing u. Or were U was adopted by a white couple.
I am so very happy for her -she has come a long way and for her to find a mate and accept her and help her get her life on the right track is remarkable. And now living the happiest days of her life and bringing their child into the world and holding her ground and staying that strong woman that she has always been, but now everyone is able to see it. Keep glowing Mary -keep your head up, You is the example for a lot of us women, who think we cannot get thru problems and overcome them. Thank you. God Bless you and your Husband Kendu and your expecting child- along with your step kids and family.
I agree with UNcle Tom Mary J Blige hates herself...you notice how she always talks about her low self-esteem and she's always saying she had no self-love...Well I have news for Mary J Blige...You STILL have NO Self-Love because you always have a perm on and a Blonde weave or wig...She's a joke when she looks like that...The last thing a woman with Low Self-Esteem needs is a child because she's just going to pass that negative skewed self-image on to her children...SOme of you Mary Fans want her to continue to prance around with a blonde wig because most females with love a black woman who hates herself just like Kelly Rowland's cellulite ridden azz...
Damn I'm all late in stuff!!!
If this is true congrats to Mary.
***********PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING*************
UNCLE TOM IS AN ATTENTION WHORE....HE LIKES TO COME ON HERE AND MAKE OUTRAGEOUS COMMENTS TO ANGER PPL. JUST IG HIS CRAZY RANTS AND ALL OF HIS MISGUIDED FOLLOWERS. HE WILL GO AWAY EVENTUALLY.
THANK U AND HAVE A GOOD DAY !!! :)
All i have to say is LAURYN HILL! She was a natural women and now she is walking around looking a damn mess yet she was telling everyone what to do with themselves! HMMMMM MIRROR!
Standard heloooooo or are you mad at me for dissing your girl Corrine?
Mary and her manager Kendu has plenty of money..
If I was waking down the street and my BLACK WOMAN jumped out from the gorcery store in a big blonde weave/wig ensemble, I would cross the other side of the street and pretend I didnt know her...I'd truly be embarrassed...Now if Kendu is not man enough to tell her or fears that his gravy train may come to a halt, she needs to get herself into some type of black mental health professional quick...No black woman with normal self esteem walks around with a big blonde wig on ...As Mike Tyson would say, "ITS LUDICRIS"....
And the topper is , this poor sick woman , low self esteem woman is goiing to bring ANOTHER CONFUSED CHILD IN THIS WORLD...
And you brothers who are supposed to be men, just sit around and enable this and dont say a word...You pimp your women and send them out as strippers, corporate whores dressed in tight revealing clothes and high heels, and you remain silent because you dont want to foot the responsibility as men and provide for YOUR OWN WOMEN while the women stay at home and keep house and raise your children...
The shame is not on the women...They are correct.
THE SHAME IS ON YOUR SO CALLED BLACK MEN...
i'LL call you black males(BOYS) from now on, because callingi you men demeans the title of MAN.
what exactly is a Natural woman and then tell me what is an UN- NATURAL WOMAN...
Do you consider yourself un natural?
And who says that a woman wearing make up and hair accesories, makes one un-natural...
Africans created henna, lotions, body and hair jewelry, etc...
I said blonde wigs, fake straight hair is A VERY DEFINITIVE SIGN OF LOW SELF ESTEEM AS A BLACK WOMAN, and you all know it to be the truth...
See, but what happens when someone points this out, all the women with low self esteem try to defend their insecurities by arguing the extremes and they'll point to a woman who is a derelict(bum) or a woman who doesnt wash her arse and them try to say thats what being NATURAL IS...
i HAVE seen alot more female derelicts with perms, wigs, weaves than I have with braids...
If you really want to talk real talk...Its just that their weave will be pretty busted because they wont have to spend their money on drugs and 40 dogs..
Mary go see Dr. Francis Cress wELsing and get some counseling in your low self esteem before you bring another confused child in this world...
We got enough confused negores here already...Just look at Remy Ma and Lil Kim and 50 cent.
thank you Blu Boy...
Kelly Rowland is another example of poor self esteem...Dark as she is , walkiing around with an azz length weave on in 100 degree weather!
Stop the madness...Someone needs to sit these sisters down and have a long talk with them and regress them to their childhood and find out when things went haywire.
@Uncle Tom...people are a product of they're environments and experiences!! You sound like such a negative individual and you are a misogynist! Everytime I see one of you're posts you are putting a sista down to the ground. What in the hell makes you an authority on what the foundation of Mary's and Kendu's relationshipis? Do you call him on a regular? Or are you mad that you can't afford to have that sex change operation and be the woman that you truly are on the inside? Is she the woman you wish you were but could never truly be? I mean seriously! Your name speaks volumes! Your a cyber racists if you ain't black and if you are the self hatred is deep!
RBB, my bad i don't know what ur talking about, who's corrin?
Uncle_Tom, u never respond to my last comment. Why....cuz ur a joke that's y. Ur a product of ur parents and i blame them for ur stupidity. Fake assss liar.
Can I keep the sister and put the weave on the ground???
Is is a package deal now, as if the weave/wig has now embedded itself into your epidermis and if you sut off the weave/wig the person is harmed (psychologically) also?
Are yall married to those things now?
Now you know Mary J. Blige, Kelly Rowland and Beyonce look like goddam fools in those long hairy monstrocities...Stop playin'.
And if a persons self esteem is tied up in some horse hair or some dead Hindu's hair, then they got alot more serious problems than can be solved here...
I usually dont respond to you because I dont consider you as a serious intellectual...You are just mean spirited, vindictive, insecure and emotionally tied up into self gratification.
Its funny cuz i feel the same way about u, ur so insecure with urself and i'm sure ur hurt that ur real parents dropped u off in a dumpster when u were born, that's y u always talking down about black women. U think Kendu is wrapped up in what Mary's hair looks like as oppose to everything she has accomplished as a woman/artist. U saying his self-esteem is low, i'm sure you wouldn't b able to handle a real woman like Mary, so to me its sounds like u hating on Kendu cuz he's more of a man then u can ever dream of.
@UncleTom...I don't wear a weave never have I wear locks(hence the screen name) but just because a sista wears a weave doesn't mean she hates herself. You learn how to accentuate your beauty. But I wear wigs sometimes to add a lil sumthin extra to the look or outfit. I think you're coming down a little hard on Mary though. She's been thrugh a lot of sh*t in her time and look at how she's been able to put her demons behind her and find love with someone who seems to care for her deeply. You have these other celebs that come from money (Paris and Nicole) and they are acting a fool like they've had no kind of upbringing. Mary came from the PJ's and everyday of her life she was told she was ugly and nothing. Can you imagine? If you hear it enough you'll believe it. She's kept her nose clean for years now so lets cut her some slack. She's in the entertainment industry. I expect her to have an over the top look. Let's show some love to the sista. Kumbaya people Kumbaya!
dont ever respond to any of my posts agsin...You are now banned from responding to me...
I just want to come on a thread and make my post, state my opinion on a matter and move on..Im not here to go back and forth with fans like you...I liked Mary as a victim like 20 years ago, but damn...How long is she going to make her money from being a goddam PERPETUAL VICTIM?
Her market is to pretty much play to African American women who have been seduced into the PERPETUAL VICTIM role, so to say that Mary needs to update her act, provokes anger in black women who still need a role model for VICTIMHOOD.
oNCE A VICtim always a victim?
standard, as I have said you are now banned from responding my posts...Listen to your friends and ignore my posts and just allow me my freedom of speech and let me post in peace.
Its funny u think u doing so much in here. Its kinda crazy. U wish u had the power to ban me from anything. Am i the only one that's getting on u or am i the only one that smell ur fake assss. U r actually a victim urself, u r a product of an unhealthy upbringing, i feel bad for u. My mommy and daddy loves me, sorry u didn't feel the love from ur parents. Its very evident.
Lots of people grew up poor and EVERY BLACK WOMAN has had issues with hair, skin tone and self esteem...
Mary has just made a living being a VICTIM and the recording company hypes that VICTIM role up to keep young black sisters feeliing like VICTIMS...Because victims dont have time to do anything but wallow in victimization....Now if the poster child and hero of those who feel like victims walks around in tacky tattoos, ridiculous blonde weaves, poor grammar,and virtual illiteracy, its going to seduce MILLIONS OF YOUNG BLACK GIRLS THAT they dont have to do well in school, that having natural coarse hair, braids, locks is ugly, and getting tatted up is the thing to do....
Shes being USED by those in power to undermine the black family, her along with Beyonce, Ciarra, and these other clowns...
But you aint seeing the big picture because you think kits about freedom...Its not about freedom, ITS ABOUT CONTROL. Of the minds, hearts and aspiration of our youth,...
and Mary made the decision early on in her career to do whatever she had to do to remain relevant in the music industry and that obviously included gang bangs, orgies, and becoming a coke whore...She made those decision herself...She could have gotten work at the post office or went to school to become a lawyer, but she decided she wanted to be in the music biz one way or the other....
Do you people HONESTLY think this woman has more talent than Angie Stone or Jill Scott?
I mean, come on people...
come on and get you some baby....listen to your buddy.
you gonna entice your friend to draw back a virtual nub...LOL
dont be filling her little head up with delusions of grandeur.
Don't act like u didn't make bad choices as a teen/young adult urself. People make bad choices everyday its how u come out of it is what makes u a better person, Mary could still b on drugs, she could've stayed with KC and but she decided changed her life around and to me that should account for something. But people with insecurities will only point out her past and her weaves/wigs or whateva and hold that against her like u saw her yesterday snorting coke.
LMAO@ C and Standard I love Norah Jones her voice is beautiful I dont know what it is about Corinne im not feeling the love LOL!
Uncle_Tom LMAO and SMH @ you have you forgotten about MJB'S THE BREAKTHROUGH and her song no more DRAMA! STOP IT!
LOL @ Rainbow, C & Standard. Yall like that Norah Jones? She's so dry. I love me some Joss Stone though, that white girl can sing. Corrine is hot too Rainbow, I like some of her songs lol.
@ Uncle Tom
I'm usually feeling you on certain topics, but on the subject of Mary, you really need to stop and breathe. As I said, Mary is a woman who has been through things in her life and is relateable and puts her soul in everything she does. If you don't like, then oh fycking well.
What???? i'm already for any and everything u throw at me, like i said ur a joke with all this ish u talking but yo asss ain't no better then anyone else. U said u don't date women with weaves/perms or whateva, but u need to remember ALL the lies u tell, cuz i remember u clearly saying u have, now u on here dogging Mary out cuz she wear weaves. Then ur excuse was that how u were brought up, like u didn't have a mind of ur own and honestly u really don't cuz all this ur saying is coming from somewhere else.
U STARTING TO SMELL LIKE SH1T AGAIN, U MIGHT WANNA WIPE YO MOUTH
all yall going to be close enough to walk to a Nets game in 2009...
I used to live in Bed Stuy...
Halsey between Troop and Thompkins Ave.
A-train to Hoy and Schemerhorn<spelling>...
Now Im in beautiful Mississippi , fresh air and I only miss the city every now and then...
I thought everyone needed to know alittle about Uncle Tom...My fans and all, I mean.
I may have to start my own blog soon...Im the shyt.
Are you serious?
Angie Stone is soulful R&B music
Jill Scott is more neo soul.......
Its like comparing them two to Chaka....We all know Chaka has a power house voice.
Mary music is more street more R&B soul
You know when you a true artist fan when you can identify who is singing by their voice on the radio. There is not comparison....sorry next time!
Mary love you much success woman and bless you and your family....continue to do what you do as long as you happy!
LMAO @ Rainbow!!! You are 2 much! I swear! You remind me of my cuzzo I swear lol.
@ Standard, I like Martina too!!! OMG, her, Faith Hill, and I used to love Shania Twain (this is the first time I ever mentioned this to anyone, I was a secret fan of em!! lol)
Wow @ Uncle Tom. Leaving the city for the rural azz South? Hmm. No wonder why you're so antsy! And YOU LIVED ON THROOP & HALSEY?! THE GHETTO?! If you lived in the PJ's Imma laugh.
Mary J. Blige cant sing...
Shes a yeller.
somebodies got to say it...
sorry it had to be me.
Im not talking about street(whatever the heck that is)...
Im talking PURE SINGING TALENT...
And pure singing transcends any fake azz genre created by corporate suits to keep our true artists confined ...they do this so they can highlight no talent people who are able to portray the images they want portrayed before the world in their media ...
I aint a big Norah fan but I respect what she accomplished, but I think that Carlos Santana and Michelle Branch should do an album together becuz that Game Of Love & I'm Feelin You are classic songs! Clive need to let Santana drop another album!
Me neither man, but hell yeah @ Santana. That man is a damn living legend, all his music is great. Lol Clive acts like a bitch with all of his artists! Michelle Branch is a good azz singer too, and Celine Dion, I could listen to her music all day.
@ Uncle Tom
Wow, I can't believe you're from Brooklyn with that kinda mindset that you have. And I still can't believe you're from the hood, because there's nothing but blacks and Puerto Ricans on Tompkins....hmm.
Thats why my folks never let me go to Thompkins Park....Lots of drug activity there...I had to go to the after school programs at JHS 35 when I wanted to hang out....I missed out on alot of fine sisters at Thompkins Park in the summer...
Breevoort was kinda rough too.
ATTENTION PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MEDIATAKEOUT IS KNOWN FOR LIES SO STOP POSTING UP STUFF THAT AIN'T TRUE WHOEVER MADE THIS SH*T...I WANNA SEE A PIC OF HER PREGNANT NOT WITH HER STOMACH FLAT SO I CAN SEE IS IT REALLY TRUE OR NOT

@Brighteyes628, I usually ignore his comments, but Mary is an inspiration who deserves happiness and not to be s*hit on by the likes of those two fudge packers. I'm usually very calm, but they took me there today. Also LMAO at yout post!
Have a great evening.
I SEE WHY YOUR NAME IS UNCLE TOM BUT I DIGRESS...FORTUNATELY FOR MARY SHE HAS FOUND A MAN THAT LOVES HER FOR WHAT IS INSIDE OF HER NOT WHAT IS ON HER HEAD...A WOMAN'S WORTH IS NOT MEASURED BY WIG/WEAVES OR PERMS...A WOMAN'S WORTH IS MEASURE BY HER HEART AND WHAT SHE HAS TO OFFER HER MATE...AT YOU SHOULD LOOK AT THE PIC AGAIN...HE IS NOT LOOKING AT HER LIKE I LOVE THIS WOMAN IN A BLONE WIG...HE IS LOOKING AT HER LIKE I AM IN LOVVVVVVVE WITH THIS WOMAN...AND FYI SHE DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PROSTITUTE...JUST BECAUSE HER STYLE IS NOT "YOUR PERSONAL" TASTE DOES NOT MEAN ANOTHER MAN SHOULD BE JUDGED FOR HAVING HIS...MY MAN HAS GAINED MUUUUUCH WEIGHT OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS...HE BRINGS IT UP BECAUSE "HE" HAS A PROBLEM WITH IT...I SEE PAST IT AND I DONT GIVE A DAYYYYYYYYUM...I AM NO SO SHALLOW THAT I CARE WHAT HIS WEIGHT IS...AND YOUR COMMENT ABOUT NOT WANTING TO TAKE "MARY" OR WHOMEVER ELSE IN PUBLIC BECAUSE OF A WIG IS JUST PLAIN IGNORANT BECAUSE THAT MEANS YOU ARE CONCERNED WITH WHAT THE PUBLIC WILL THINK AND SAY...AND UNTIL THE PUBLIC IS PAYING YOU BILLS AND LOVING YOU UNCONDITIONALLY THEN FUC K THEM BECAUSE IT WONT HAPPEN...THE TRUTH IS YOU HAVE NOT EVER BEEN LOVED, OR HAVE LOVED UNCONDITIONALLY BECAUSE HAIR COLOR, WIGS WHATEVER WOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE...AND HER WIG HAS NO BEARING ON IF HER BABY WILL BE HEALTHY AND HAPPY...THAT IS JUST "SIMPLE" OF YOU AS A BLACK MAN TO EQUATE THE TWO...I SINCERLY HOPE YOU GROW BROTHER AND REEEEEEEAL QUICK...JUDGING FROM YOUR POSTS YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THIS OPEN-MINDLY BECAUSE YOU WILL BE THINKING OF A DEFENSIVE REPLY...JUST KNOW...I WONT RESPOND! JUST AS YOU WONT BE SEEN WITH BLACK WOMEN WITH BLONDE HAIR...I WONT BE SEEN RESPONDING TO BLACK MEN THAT SPEW IGNORANCE.
okay, I agree...
If the wig/weave is not really important part of ones humanity, then take the shyt off...Its not like the thing is sutured into her scalp...The wig can be off in 0.5 sec and the weave in less than 30 minutes.....Halloween is over...
ll tell you this...We're going out to a cheap diner to get dinner tomorrow night and my wife knows not to put on some big hairy blonde weave and expect to go out with me...She's going to be looking her best...Shes not bald, she has healthy hair and a healthy scalp, why in the hell would she need to trick or treat with a blonde wig?..
Now if a woman has male pattern baldness and shes too vain to just shave her head, then I'll allow it..But not none damn blonde white womans wig...It'll have to be something that represents Africa, be it locks, braids, twists or a short natural or a mega fro'...Just as if it were her actual hair...
How stupid would it look if I decided to show up at to take her out and I have on a blonde toupee' and blue contacts? She'd look at me as if I lost my natural mind, but a woman can do it and everyone will automatically assume she is sane, when she clearly has esteem issues wrapped up in vanity.
Mary J is the truth and if she's happy, I have no choice other than to be happy for her!
I would love to get into this heated discussion about you and your Harriet Tubman and me and [my GOD],but I have a feeling that being silent is the best strategy here!
But I'll say this (lol):
I'm not a religious person. I'm a spiritual person! I'm human, I make mistakes! And God deals with me through His [spirit]! I do believe in my God. This is what I know and it feels right to me. I have too many testimonies, too many faithful experinces to deny [my God]! His peace surpasses all understanding and I know b/c if it was not for His word, a sista would be lost!
At this point in my life, it would be foolish to deny Him!
I love my God. I don't lean on [my own understanding], but I let God take control and guide my decisions and it [works]! I truly feel that if any man does have doubts about God it's b/c he has not fully experienced God's power, His anointing...
The thing that trips me out about God and what He stands for! HE allows us free will! And forgives us for any and everything as long as we confess and repent! He's a healer, a comforter, a friend, a [fill in the blank]...
NO ONE FORCES U TO BELIVE IN HIM. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BELIEVE IN HIM. So what is all this fuss about????
However, there has got to be something there, something that makes [non-believers] so determined and obsessed with proving who His is and what He stands for. If you don't believe in God then why trample all over other believers? Why waste energy on a God that you feel doesn't exist? If Jesus is a fictious character to you...cool!!!!!!!
BUT, STOP TRYING TO MAKE YOURSELF FEEL BETTER ABOUT NOT BELIEVING IN HIM. LEAVE HIM ALONE! LEAVE US ALONE! WHAT ARE YOU SO SCARED OF?!?
My thing is...what are you guys trying to prove? Who are you trying to convince??? Is there some misunderstanding, doubt, skepticism??? Obviously, there is intimidation there. There is fear there and you know what, it's okay! But, tell me this: why is it so easy for a person to believe in EVERYTHING ELSE but have such a hard time with accepting who God is...
Do you know how cool He is??? Imagine making a mistake, then asking God for forgiveness and voila, no more worrying, guilt, shame! This is what He stands for! Why wouldn't anybody want to get with this??? Why do it all by yourself??? What's wrong with love???? That's all God is, is love!!!!
I swear if Paul Mooney was here; he'd shut this topic down. I love what he said about the ten commandments! He said that 'the ten commandments gets in man's ass and that man has made up these other religions b/c well, it's easier for man to do what they want! Let me go and get with this over here b/c this here doesn't suit me. I don't like this!'
Uncle_Tom, go read: Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. Go! Go get it now!!! You seem to put so much emphasis on the things [you want] to and I think that's the problem! You seem to belive in all the evil before you believe in the love. If there is evil then tell me, what is the opposite of that??????
Give me an hour with you Uncle_Tom and I promise you, you'd believe there is a God and that all things, [all things] are possible through recognizing and living through His son, Jesus! But, just know you have a choice...b/c you will never find Christians downing or ridiculing another religion, we're satisfied where we are at!
God Bless you guys!
we just had a debate about God and she lost...Its not that deep...It was not an emotional experience for me as it seems to be for you...I was smiling during the whole thing because TRUTH GIVES ME JOY...
Why do you want to have an hour with me to believe in the fairy tales that you believe in?
Shouldnt you be CONTENT to believe what you beleive without me? The fact that you arent content shows your own doubts because you have never met anyone named Jesus (not counting Jesus Hernandez)and a mystery God who sits on a cloud is a figment of the Vaticans imagination...
Now there are spirit beings, both of negative and positive polarity which the human eye cannot detect...There are also humanoids and other extraterrestials other than our species here on the surface of this planet...Im not saying that the spiritual realm is not real...
Thats not what Im saying...Im saying that SPIRITUALITY WAS HIJACKED BY mere mortals and turned into something to control humanity and to profit off of humanity and they call it religion and it has to do with control...
Same way Rap Music was hijacked and controlled and taken over and put in the hands of Eminem....
The same way real food was hijacked and taken over with processed foods..
The same way Little Richards Rock and Roll was taken over and turned over to KISS..
yOU BEEN HAD BOO...I dont like being the one to burst peoples bubble...Yes you have the potential to be a God and that potential is being smothered by faith and belief iin something that doesnt exist...
remember in Genesis?
"LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE AND AFTER OUR LIKENESS"
BUT WHY DOES IT MATTER TO YOU IF SHE TAKES HER WIG OFF OR NOT..U ARE NOT MARRIED TO HER...AND IF U DO INDEED AGREE HER WIG DOESNT MAKE THE PERSON, THEN WHY SHOULD SHE TAKE IT OFF...ITS HER OWN PERSONAL STYLE...HER HEAD, HER WIG...WHY DOES IT REALLY IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THING MATTER?
I AM SURE U WAKE IN THE MORNING AND DRESS YOURSELF WITHOUT CONSULTING MARY OR ANYONE ELSE ON HOW YOU LOOK...YOU DRESS TO PLEASE AND APPEASE YOURSELF...YOUR PERROGATIVE...HAVE YOU EVER WORN A HAT? WHY COVER UP YOUR HAIR WITH A HAT? BECAUSE YOU DESIRE...SAME REASON SHE WEARS A WIG...SHE DESIRES...NO BIG DEAL...NOW IS IT?
Congrats to Mary and Kenu! you can have a child as long as you menstrate and apparently with the help of modern science even after you stop. I don't see people complaining about all the other older women giving birth at 40, 50, and 60 to each it's own. there are birth defects that happen to children born to young women just as they are to the high-risk pregnancies. a little genetic counseling and staying under a watchful eye of a dr. everything should be fine. there are young women that can't keep up with the children they have and a fit woman regardless of age can do her thing with the kids. think of all the elderly father's and they're still popping them out!
I wonder , if its a girl will Mary put extensions in her hair at 3 years old?
I see so many confused sisters, confusing their children sometimes with weaves and extensions before they even learn their ABC's, they learn that their natural hair is ugly...
And yall know you are starting to see 4 year old girls with weaves and extensions....ITS MADNESS!
tHE ILLNESS od self hatred is passed early on, generation to generation and each generations gets mentally weaker and weaker andphysically weaker because of the processed foods...
Children 10 years old with Type 2 Diabetes and Hgh Blood Pressure and n*ggers running around in blonde wigs and spinners thinking they are cute.
Man I can't stand some of you fucckin bloggers.. @JU I said Mary can't sing. Niggga wtf is wrong with you. It's my opinion .. She dont see you no way all upset ova a comment get a fucckkkin life QQn in my Chanel Bag for my 9( just incase i have to slap your azz back to reality).
YOU ARE RIGHT...HE'S SUCH AN HYPOCRITE...HE SAYS IN ONE POSTING...HIS CONCERNS IS FOR "HIS" PEOPLE AND THEN IN THE NEXT POST CALL HIS PEOPLE "N IGGERS" IN BLONDE WIGS...SO MUCH FOR HIS CONCERN AND UPLIFTING HIS PEOPLE...RIGHT?
I MUST SAY IT'S SOME IGNORANT PEOPLE ON MEDIA TAKE OUT LEAVING COMMENTS. 1ST OF ALL MARY IS NOT 40 AND EVEN IF SHE IS SO WHAT !!!! GOD HAS BLESSED HER TO CONCIEVE. IF THESE WHITE B'S CAN HAVE TWINS A 60 SHE CAN HAVE A BABY AT 36!!! I'M HAPPY FOR YOU MARY.I LOVE YOU AND MAY YOU HAVE A VERY HEALTHY BEAUTIFUL BABY. ALL YOU HATERS NEED TO JUST KILL YOURSELF!! DUMB ASSES
NOW MARY, I UNDERSTAND WHY YOU WEREN'T MOVING SO MUCH AT THE ESSENCE FEST (YOU WERE PREGNANT THEN IF THE REPORTS ARE RIGHT ABOUT HER BEING 3 MONTHS ) THAT 'S COOL. I'M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY FOR YOU. YOU DESERVE YOUR OWN BABY AND YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY!!! FINALLY
AFTER EVERYTHING THAT MARY HAS BEEN THROUGH, ALL I CAN SAY IS CONGRATS, CONGRATS, AND GOD BLESS U!! I ACTUALLY HAVE NO SMART-AZZ COMMENT ON THIS ONE!! MTO, U BETTER BE TELLING THE TRUTH DAMMIT!!! LOL!!!
Y'all are some direspectful, critical people. Whatever happened to being happy for people? According to Mary and her husband, she is not too old. Would you prefer that she had a child 15 years ago when she was coked-up and drunk out of her mind? She is having a baby when she is stable in life. I'm happy for her and for those who said that she has played the victim and is bitter, obviously her husband doesn't think so. I remember that she said in an interview that her husband was good for her because he taught her that is wasn't all about her: how she felt and what she had gone through. I think he's good for her and you can notice the difference.
@brighteyes, i'm not trying to prove anything to Uncle_Tom, it's just a little friendly convo/debate...there is no way in hell i can change a man's conditioning on a gossip site overnight and vice versa! although [it is] quite possible ;-)...hm. i do consider myself an intelligent being and there aren't too many people in here (no offense) that can give me that challenge as he does/has, so therefore, no time wasted...
...we just had a debate about God and she lost...
you don't know how hard i laughed when i saw that first sentence, you are a trip, indeed!
...fairy tales??? Uncle_Tom, come on now, LOL
you've never met harriet tubman. i've never met Jesus, but guess what? He's my TRUTH and you'll have to respect that just as much as I respect who/what you believe in.
yes, you are right, whether you believe in what i believe, i [still] will be content. isn't this the same thing i was trying to tell you in the beginning???
like i said, i'm not STUCK on religion. i am a very open individual BUT i do know that there is a higher power...we BOTH agree on this as it seems...
the hijacking, now, i can feel you on that! i do believe that [man] has evil ways and GREED is definitely a demon personality that has allowed all this to happen. we all have our demons. however, i CHOOSE to look to that spiritual healing/connection for my peace, NOT to man. and, what if i did beleive in all the hype [you consider] to be fairy tales and "SPIRITUAL HIJACKING"...what EXACTLY do i have to loose anyway...
i am VERY aware of the corruption that [the man] has gotten away with, but i like to think that my spiritual well-being and God, gets a little deeper than Elvis Presley vs. Chuck Berry (i'm going back a little further than KISS and Richard), you feel me? but, i'm still w/ you, LOL...i'm not lost...i'm following you!
that Genesis scripture goes over my head...sorry, maybe you can elaborate a little more...
and you know you wrong for calling me, 'BOO! lol
First off, congratulations to Mary and Kendu if this is so. It is the best thing in the world being a parent. I just became one myself 7 months ago.
@ Uncle Tom
The atheism is not a big deal, it's your right to have your opinion about faith. Everyone can and will not be believers.
The calling out black women is something else.
How can you be so arrogant to think that you know what is going through a sister's mind when she adds extensions to her hair or dye it? What does it mean when white girls do it I wonder? As women we like to change it up. Sometimes I wear extensions, sometimes I don't. As a man you have the right to choose whatever type of woman you like. If you like natural, go with natural, but you are not the judge, jury, and executioner of a woman's right to do her hair. You're a bit of a douche I must say. Maybe you hate black women because you want to be one. That's normally the case. See how it feels to have someone examine your motives without knowing you. It sucks, doesn't it.
Uncle Tom the more I hear your logic the more I think your a racist....tell me why are you here? Everytime I read one of your post you always seem to put black women down. SO PHUCKIN WHAT if anyone wants to wear weaves, wear blond hair, have a wooden leg with a kickstand, SO WHAT!!
Stop while your ahead cause your sounding like a total idiot, my goodness what kinda black women have you ran upon.....go play on the phuckin freeway somewhere.
Let me make this very clear to all..
I LOVE BLACK WOMEN....I love black women enough to not sugarcoat the shyt anymore...
We gotta start being straight with one another and if black women care enough to tell me things that I can approve on it is taken very lovingly and I consider it well...Sometimes others can see you better than you can see yourself, because they dont have the same fiter we have for ourself...
One thing I did notice...No ones really called me a liar...They just called me naughty names.
I believe Mary is close to the age of 40. I don't recall her being that young (36). I don't see her having patience with a child. She gets irritated too quickly. Well...we know who will be interacting with the child the most. What will she ever do if that man leaves her? Beneath God, Kendu is the sole reason Mary is standing.
@ Uncle Tom
Why would anyone call you a liar? I can only recall you ever stating your "opinion" or perhaps random historical events that you end up attaching your opinion to. Therefore, wouldn't it be assinine to call somones opinion a lie?
I've stated quite a few relevant facts in my time here...
Such as the fact that 92% of African American women either straighten, perm, weave, wig, or extend their hair with artificial hair as opposed to wearing naturals, locks, twists or braids!...
Thats a FACT that I often mention and this particular fact belies the argument that this 92% choice is MERELY A FASHION STATEMENT and not a self esteem and a pyscho-social disorder...
And dont come on these thread and question my authority of my methods again or you will find yourself banned from getting responses from me like I had to unfortunately do to that poster formerly known as "standard"...
the point of the particular scripture that I quoted from Genesis:
"LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE AND AFTER OUR LIKENESS"
was highlighted as an example to show that the word "GOD" has been MISINTERPRETED as it has and after it has been translated from the original languages ...The world "God" is actually a German word and of German derivative and extraction from the word "Guut"...
There were no Germans around during Genesis, which means somebodies lying to somebody...
In the Hebrew language the name for deity(God) is Eloheem and Eloheem is PLURAL....tHIS belies the popular belief on Monotheism as we have here in judeo-christian dogma(christianity-judaism-islam)...
When they , the Vatican plagarized ancient Sumerian , Babylonian and Egyptian texts to create a new religion, they made a few mistake which they never figured would be caught and they probably never figured on the internet;)
Let us make man is a clear example to show that God is not some mystery force but a GROUP OF BEINGS as it pertains to the creation and procreation of life here...
Now there is a greater force of which all living things are permeated with that binds all things in all universes and as they say in Star Wars, it is called THE FORCE, or chi, or prana, or sekhem...
So yes, we are all filled with the breath of life(FORCE) and thusly we are all part of something greater than ourselves...This force is intelligent and we all have it within us and we can manipulate this force through the power of mind to do the things and greater that was subscribed to the character Jesus (really Horus), in your bible and greater even that that.
I think I better stop here for now, as I dont want to blow your fuse...Just digest what you can for now...If you seek more, a teacher will appear when you need one as it has always been ordered in the universes.
I'm confused, so you'd rather respond to name calling than to a genuine question regarding your views? Fine...Feel free to "ban" me (hilarious!!) because I don't do the name calling thing, I left that back in Jr. High School.
However...again, you just stated a FACT (I'll take your word on that 92%) and included your own interpretation of said fact. Similarly, we can state a FACT on the % of black males that are incarcerated and given that fact, we can interpret to mean either A) Black males do more dirt or B) Black males are targeted more. Again, FACT combined with individual assumption. I'm sure we can go on to say that there are documented incidences where blacks are actually targeted same as there are documented "fashions" where black women with long hair actually wear what is called a "quick weave" in order to achieve a short hair style without committing to the style or women with locks or braids wear wigs just to switch up their style. On the other hand, I have a short curly natural and I'll admit it has nothing to do with my heritage. I also wear an obscene amount of fashion head wraps, which also has nothing to do with my heritage. They are quick, easy and look good. My point is, people do what they do for reasons unknown to us. Someone can look at me and say her hair is natural (FACT) and then go on to assume that I'm against relaxers, weaves or really in touch with my heritage. All of these things are assumptions bassed on a fact.
Hmm, I think you may be a little off with that one. There are plenty of people who have children OOW who love their children and take care of them, celebrities included.
And on the flip, there are married couples who have problems. It's just the "husbands" have to take care of the child regardless if its theirs or not, bcus the child was conceived w/in a union. It says nothing about the love the child will get.
Britney & K-Fed - Married & Dysfunctional
Eminem & Kim - Married & Dysfunctional
Monica & Rodney - She's not married, but that baby seems to be well taken care of.
It's the PERSON not the SITUATION.
thanks for clearing that up. after reading that second to last paragraph, i started to think of 'The Secret. i'm sure you already know about that...
and i'm always seeking MORE! knowledge, whether i agree, disagree, don't know or don't care, is a natural high for me...gives me tingles!
your fact and assumption theory sounds good, but i'm lost...
question is...what is natural EXACTLY?!?
and if someone says your hair is natural, doesn't it depend on whether or not the person knows what natural is before we can call it FACT? OR even if it were straight or relaxed, what compliment proves a FACT here? b/c some chicks who perm DO NOT do it correct. and some people who go natural have yet to get that down also. NATURAL is so much more than a straw set or that jerry curl mess that black chicks pile on their heads!
i mean, what about the black girl with "natural" wavy or curly hair; that doesn't have that wooly or nappy texture??? i wouldn't assume that she was against perms, weaves or goin back to her heritage...that there, is something we do as far as ethnicty is concerned.
just think about the white girl with dreads in her hair...oh lawd, how do you decipher that s/h/i/t?!?
by the way, are you taking/ did you take a philosophy class or something b/c your FACT/ASSUMPTION theory sounds a little text bookish, lol, just kidding...
Lol @ zebrahead...I feel you on the textbookish!
I don't know if you saw the post by Uncle Tom, but he mentioned that no one calls him a liar and I stated that its not appropriate to call someones opinion a lie and that the FACTS he presents are laced with his opinion/assumptions. Like 92% of black women doing whatever to their hair means they have some sort of weird complex. Thats his assumption/opinion. So I'm saying that if I ran across someone like him who knew my hair was natuaral or saw me wearing a headwrap may "assume" it was heritage based or he may assume I shared some of his views same as he "assumes" women who wear weaves or perms have psychological issues. When I say "natural" I'm simply referring to our own hair without chemials. That includes the women with naturally curly/wavy hair which mine is when I cut it short. When it grows out longer, its just a wavy stringy mess. Nothing cute about it. Thats when I blow it dry and style it. So if someone like him saw me on that day, he'd assume I had a relaxer and was included in his 92% of black women he thinks hate themselves...So I was using that as an example of how it is very easy to ASSUME wrong which I think he has.
I'm with you on the white girl with dreads.... tragedy!
When I speak of being natural Im speaking about women with coarse African hair...Hair that you will only find UNIQUELY in Africa AND NO WHERE ELSE ON THIS PLANET...Right now that is my focus...Nappy heads...
do you know where the term "Its Greek to me " comes from?..It comes from the fact that Greek philosophy is nothing more than mental masturbation...Its the art of speaking and managing to say absolutely nothing meanginful but to confuse and go around in circles...In sometimes sounds heavy to the innocent bystander , until they check their scorecards and realizes, that after all the banter is finished nothing meaningful has been communicated...The Greeks tried to copy off African thinkers and Greek philosophy is the bastard and weakened product of that mimicry...
My point is that is where debate comes from...Its an impure art of being able to argue both sides of an issue without the intellectual foundation to internalize it...This is what they teach you in school and wastes so much time with instead of teaching the kids what they really need to know...How money really works and the art of analytical thinking.
O.k? Do you believe there is a difference between debate and conversation? I believed this to be the latter. A true "debate" requires more energy and research than I am willing to put forth on a MTO message board. Maybe that is where I got lost, perhaps I don't take this site as seriously as most. No disrespect to any....
So do you want to blame everyone for you lack of preparation? There is no law that says one must post comments on MTO...Some people understand that their contribution should be delegated to voyeur...And even in converstaion, every word has meaning....
Dont show up to a gunfight with a billyclub.
She makes me sick! Lost all her African fans when she refused to perform at the ThisDay musical festival in Nigeria. Her rep said "she was too scared to come to Africa." People were pissed off at her. Beyonce, JayZ, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Ciara, En Vogue, Missy all came in 2006. They just had this year's festival and John Legend, Diddy, Rihanna all came for 2007. What's scaring Mrs Kendu Blige? Many fans tossed her fan base.Even Ludacris and 50 came in 2005. I covered 2006. See the pictures on my sites
I hate to do this but you are officially banned from receiving any further responses from me.
You have shown disdain and contempt for my authority and you have also shown yourself to be insubordinate...
@ Uncle Tom
Your responses will be sorely missed. Its a good thing that you know your limitations and stay in your place; because you'd be shamed right out of any reputable forum. Stick to MTO and with a little practice maybe you can advance to Y@hoo.
If someone makes even a 1/2 point, you refuse to concede to it. You pretend its totally uncomprehendable as if they are speaking Japanese to you...then you respond with:
"do you know where the term "Its Greek to me " comes from?..It comes from the fact that Greek philosophy is nothing more than mental masturbation..."
Oh, and then you "ban" them...I applaud your tactic along with the fact that you are intelligent enough to recognize where you can and cannot pull it off. Stay Blessed.
WOW...ON THE RIHANNA STORY UNCLE TOM SAYS HE WANTS "SOME MILK" AND ON HERE M.J IS NOT NATURAL...SO ITS OK TO GET IMPLANTS BUT NOT A WEAVE!
CLEARLY, THERE IS NO LOGIC IN HIS MADNESS HE JUST LIKES TO USE THE "BLACK POWER" SHYT TO START A FIGHT!
AND YEAH I AM BLACK TOO, SO THAT LIL ACT AINT FOOLING ME UNCLE TOM!
this is in reference to uncle tom/mary's hair ONLY. i'm not referencing all black women.
Mary herself has said she's always worn blonde hair and blue/colored contacts b/c growing up she thought being white was beauty. she hated her thick lips, and broad nose. you can youtube her on oprah saying the same thing. you can look at old pictures to see the contacts. i don't think she no longer wears them.
so in reference to mary, he's right.
darn tootin' Im right...People arent crazy, I know what I see and I know my arithmetic and the law of probabilities...And over 90% of African American women alter their hair artificially to emulate European/Indian women whatever the case may be...And the law of probability says that for over 90% to alter their hair for fashion to look like European women DEFIES ALL LAW OF PROBABILITY....There is a sickness going on here and Mary was just one of the few to CONSIOUSLY come to terms with it...Now what does it say that she knows and acknowledges her low self esteem and SHE STILL WEARS BIG ASS FAKE BLONDE WIGS AND WEAVES?
what does that say and, the fact that a new life is coming into the world through her with her psuchological disorder and self hatred is in fact quite disturbing...And this fool Kendu is lookiing at her like a cash machine at that silly ass blonde beast on her head and has the nreve to smile...That man doesnt care about her..If he did , he tell her the truth and get himself a personal trainer and lose that gut...
since you bought in irrefutable evidence that Mary J. Blige HERSELF admits her blonde weave/wigs, blue contacts, etc are the DIRECT RESULT of low self esteem and an DEEP SEATED INFERIORITY COMPLEX, now everybody shut up and moved on and are trying to pretend they didnt see your post...LOL
tHE sad part is I never heard Mary's quote on Oprah and didnt need to hear it to know whats going on with her...Its right there for the world to see in living color...
The Nile aint just a river in Egypt.
>>> after all the bullshhh she been thru in her
life with drugs & bad relationships , its nice to
finally see her happy...much love MARY J
GET RICH QUICK
