Mary J. Blige a DIVA???
Posted by Media Outrage on March 25, 2010
Not everyone is happy with Mary J. Blige according to sources at a Festival in Florida that she performed at. They say she was on some real DIVA Shyte. Peep game…
According to organizers at Miami’s Jazz in the Gardens, Blige took the stage to perform an hour and a half late, which made the show go over its allotted time slot and went ‘diva’ backstage.
“Her handlers kept saying that she would ‘go onstage when she was ready’. But it was almost midnight when she got on, which took the entire festival into overtime,” a source revealed earlier this week.
While being late is something some concertgoers have come to expect from certain artists, Blige’s attitude backstage was completely unexpected and did not go unnoticed.
Sources say she acted as though she was the first lady (Michelle Obama), refusing to get out of her limousine until nearly all press was removed from a tent:
“While she sat in her limousine, her personal guards came into the press tent to clear out the area like they were the Secret Service. They first demanded that all print and online journalists be kicked out because Mary didn’t want to take questions. They were acting like she was Michelle Obama or Queen Elizabeth,” a source revealed.
“When Mary finally emerged from her car, she walked into the tent for literally two minutes wearing dark shades – even though it was night time. She struck one pose and then walked off without bothering to say a single word. Her antics were extreme and unwarranted.”
