She is AWESOME and deserves all the fame and fortune she is getting today! The media cant handle her honesty and strength so they try to bash her any chance they find. Screw them! She has changed many women's life for the better!

I'm shocked Chaka Khan hasn't beat the living daylights out of Mary J. for trying to cover her songs. Not only can Mary NOT sing but she sounds like she's struggleing when she tries. I hope the entertainment get their money

"claiming one of its producers", not it's, which means "it is"

Honesly, who cares? She's done really well for herself, no doubt, but she's from YONKERS, which is not the ghetto where she claims to be from. Granted it's not the nicest place, but definitely not the ghetto.... Personally, I think her voice is very hard to listen to.

It is really surprising to read these hateful remarks about her...


She is a good role model and has always been a law abiding citizen - even with the pressures of being famous for almost two decades at a very young age

She is also very talented - why are these readers so angry at her????
