While it was first reported that Mary J. Blige owed a heaping $900,000 to the New Jersey state in taxes, we've come to learn that she actually owes an INSANE $3,426,255.43 in total between NJ and federal taxes!!!!!!
The Grammy winner ignored bills from the IRS in 2009 for $574,907.30, 2010 for $2,203,743.53, and 2011 for $647,604.60 AS WELL AS the initial $901,769.65 she needs to cough up to the Garden State.
Let us also not forget that she defaulted on a $2.2 million bank loan and the charity that is suing her for never paying back a $250,000 loan.
We'd advise her to break out that check book and fast, but something tells us not even an uber-successful songstress like Mary has that kind of cash!
Looks like Lauryn Hill could very well be getting a musically-inclined cell mate!
On the bright side, wouldn't they would make a GREAT singing duo??
Well hey there kid, you wanna come to a swingin' party?!
Cause that's just what you'll find in the music video for will.i.am's addition to The Great Gatsby soundtrack!
Prepare to tap your toes in the style of old school jazz with will.i.am and one fine lookin' broad (above)!
Oh man we cannot get over how similar the female vocal part of this track sounds to Britney Spears' Scream and Shout lyrics, but Wills himself has denied BritBrit's involvement…
Well it's a killer track regardless (pun intended), and it just make us wanna shimmy and shake with an overflowing glass of bubbly in our hand!
This is so unbearably tragic!!
Mother nature struck Oklahoma with very little warning earlier today, demolishing good chunks of Oklahoma City suburbs and killing at least 37 people!!
With winds reportedly in excess of 200mph and with a base over a mile wide (above), there is an unfathomable amount of debris and destruction in the tornado's wake.
Glenn Lewis, the mayor of Moore — an outlier of OKC — said:
“The whole city looks like a debris field.”
It is likely way too early to properly get a handle on property damage and human causalities.
Our hearts break for the countless number of people affected by this vicious force of nature.
We will keep you updated as more information is gathered.

FUN PAIN?? What does that even mean??
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson recently had surgery — a surgery that resulted in him experiencing swelling around his penis. He said it was a fun kind of pain… and don't worry, he elaborated!
Ray Manzarek, the legendary keyboardist of The Doors, passed away Monday afternoon after a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer.
The voice and face and bare chest of the band may have been Jim Morrison, but the brains behind the outfit was Ray.
Ray helped give the band several huge hits with his catchy melodies. After Jim's death, Ray became a solo performer, music producer, and author.
In 2002, Ray reunited with The Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger to continue playing their classics. Robby said:
Oh, girl — this sultry cut is just for you!
We say this with certainty because Travis Garland actually utters the word "girl" 44 times in his sweet new video for Blue Electric Roses, LOLz!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
Even seXXXier than T-money's smooth-as-silk voice and the track's bold bedroom tempo is the way he looks chillin' on the beach with his beautiful babe!!
Oooh, they're getting hot & heavy!!
Something tells us it won't take the ocean waves to get that lucky girl, girl, girl, girl, girl all wet, LOLz!!
