| Filed under: Mary J. Blige

Uh, oh!

It appears that Mary J. Blige's announcement that she will be attending Howard University may have been a bit presumptuous!

Apparently Howard University hasn't heard anything about the R&B singer enrolling in this historically black university. A rep for the school says:

"We encourage Ms. Blige to continue her studies and welcome her consideration of Howard University in the future. We are happy to work with Ms. Blige on completing the formal process for admission."

Still sounds promising to us! You get that higher education, Mary J.!

Mary J. Blige was rumored to be divorcing her husband, music industry exec Martin Kendu Issacs, but she has denied the allegations!

Her rep said that the split isn't true and that the couple is "very happy." They even showed up together at the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute's Gala last night.

The rumors started flying after Blige reportedly smacked Issacs while they were out and about in NYC in December. Yikes!

But we're glad they've worked things out!

Mary J. Talks About My Life

| Filed under: Mary J. BligeFragranz!

maryjblige_mylife_e.jpg

She's designed t-shirts and watches so it only makes sense that Mary J Blige has moved on to coming out with her own fragrance.

The songstress' named her new fragrance My Life after her 1994 album, which Blige says was a major turning point in her life. She explains:

"I was crying out for help, because I was going through so much. And four million women said, ‘Mary, we’re going through it, too, but you’re helping us by calling on us.’ From that day on, I began speaking truths about my life, and about their lives, and everything around us. So it’s a special tribute to us as women. My fans and I are smart now. We know we’re smart now, but we didn’t know it then. We know we’re beautiful now, we didn’t know it then. We’re educated now, we didn’t know it then. We’re soft, we’re edgy — we’re all those things. And I wanted this perfume to represent every female’s everyday life."

The gardenia petals, Bartlett pear and white freesia scent that Mary created in partnership with beauty brand Carol's Daughter will begin selling My Life on July 31st exclusively on HSN for $46. As a bonus all purchases come with a gold clutch.

Cute!

Also, for every bottle of My Life purchased, $1 will benefit the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now or FFAWN, which Blige founded.

What a great idea!

We hope the fragrance does well!
