R&B superstar Mary J. Blige says a recently pulled Burger King advertisement that featured her was “unfinished” and didn’t follow the parameters to which she’d agreed.
The clip, which Burger King released on YouTube before taking it down this week amid a public backlash, is part of a series of celebrity ads showcasing the fast-food chain’s new menu options.
In Blige’s spot, the nine-time Grammy winner promotes the new Crispy Chicken Snack Wraps. Wearing a short wig, leather jacket and shades, she rocks to the beat of her own song, “Don’t Mind,” off her latest album, “My Life II… The Journey Continues.”
She sings altered lyrics, about “crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, ranch dressing, wrapped up in a tasty flour tortilla.” People complained about the ad on social media sites, with some saying that her peddling of chicken played into racial stereotypes. FULL POST

It seems that not a week goes by without another headline referring to Miley Cyrus’s latest controversy. She’s scrutinized in the public eye for her risqué outfits, for being a “bad example” and for her alleged indecent exposure, all while just she's trying to become an adult.
On Monday night, Cyrus performed material from her latest album, “Can’t Be Tamed,” at the House of Blues in West Hollywood as well as to an online audience via MTV’s live stream. The crowd wasn’t limited to the Disney teenyboppers that previously filled her “Hannah Montana” shows, but also included her loyal of-age followers, her family and yes, even her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth.
The parents in attendance weren’t there only to chaperone their children - they belted out the lyrics to her new rendition of “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” as loudly as their underage kids.
