Burger King Pulls Mary J. Blige Ad

Burger King has actually pulled its controversial Mary J. Blige chicken ad.

They are claiming it's because of music licensing issues, not the internet backlash or the racist undertones.

A spokesperson for BK said the commercial should be back on the air soon once they work out a licensing concern.

They didn't comment if they'd be changing the ad or not.

The spokesperson also commented on how Jay Leno and Salma Hayek were also in ads for the wraps, so it's not just Mary J. and the chicken.

Either way, we'd be surprised if they really did start airing the ads again.

Mary J. Blige Tries To Sing The National Anthem At The NBA All-Star Game

| Filed under: Music MinuteMary J. BligeBasketball

Ya win some, ya lose some.

Unfortunately, it looks like Mary J. Blige lost this one.

The Grammy winner took the court before the start of Sunday's NBA All-Star Game to belt out the National Anthem, but she sounded a little off if you ask us or anybody else listening.

Just how "off" was she?

Watch her performance above to find out and let us know whether or not U felt her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner was a little subpar!

Since nobody is perfect and we know Mz. Blige is super talented, we won't hold one botched song against her, but wish her better luck next time!
