Girl You Don't Got That Vibe
At Saturday's taping of the 'Vibe Awards,' Mary J. Blige silenced an audience of thousands. The Grammy Award winning singer, who is this year's VLegend Award honoree, took the podium and vocalized her displeasure about her December Vibe cover. She alluded to a much-needed sit-down with the Editor-in-Chief Mimi Valdes, a former intern who has been helming Vibe since style-maker Emil Wilbekin exited his award winning post to work in fashion last year. "You could hear a pin drop," a record executive who witnessed the spectacle told Black Voices today."Everyone's mouth was wide open in disbelief. It was Mary being Mary. She always speaks her mind, and that's why we love her. That cover did not do her justice or reflect her current positive and confident state." (via BlackVoices)

And if anyone cares, Wilhelmina model Gabriel Aubry will reprise his role from last season as Versace's requisite beefcake.
