Well, there’s some fresh drama in Mary J. Blige’s life. In a February 17 Instagram Story video, the “Mary Jane” singer told followers she could not make it to a meet-and-greet that evening — only two hours before the event began, per Page Six. “Hey, everyone. Sorry I had to postpone the in-store at Looney Tunes,” Blige said about her scheduled event at the Long Island, New York record store. “I love y’all,” Blige continued. “Thank you so much for your love and support, and I’ll see you soon.” Although Blige did not give an official reason for the postponement, a Page Six source disclosed that the singer was stuck in traffic in Manhattan at the time of her video message.
As Page Six noted, fans waiting in line to meet Blige were not satiated by the singer’s pseudo-explanation. “We were so excited to see Mary just days after she performed on the biggest night in TV, but now we’re just disappointed and frustrated. It’s really irresponsible of her,” one fan shared with the outlet. Many attendees were already feeling sour that the photo-op necessitated they first purchase a physical CD of Blige’s new album, “Good Morning Gorgeous.” Although Looney Tunes stated in its Facebook post about Blige’s postponement that refunds were available, one fan claimed the contrary: “They didn’t offer a refund until after I heard [about it on Facebook] hours later.” Oof, what a bad look for Mary!
