MediaTakeOut.com caught wind that Mary J Blige was a good Samaritan the other day. Word is that she helped out a broke chick at the Diane Von Furstenburg store who was in desperate need of a wrap dress.
Here's how the NY Post is reporting it:
"The girl had a dress on hold that she loved, and the bill was $900. She thought it was only $500, and she couldn't afford it." Blige told the saleswoman, "Go get the girl. I want to pay for the balance on the dress." The customer at first declined Blige's offer but relented after the singer said, "I know what it's like to want something and not be able to have it. I insist."
Mary .... girrrrrrlll ... why you ain't tell us that you were giving away money!! Do you know that we have a pair of earrings on layaway that we've been paying down on for months ....
Good morning! Good for MJB when you extend kindness it will return to you.
Take note people, a little kindness goes along way. No matter how big or small. It doesn't have to be the balance of a $900 dress, it could be something as small as a 25 cents. Be kind to people and offer a good word instead of a stabbing word.
lol thats good but she could have made better use of that money.....just my opinion
F*ck clothes and ***, I got some student loans I could use a lil help with!!
Someone should have told the chick that if she can't afford the dress she *** be putting *** on hold, wonder if she paid her light bill this month??
cool share the wealth MAry...
Tina, did you view the hot videos with bikinis at free interracial dating site
'I *** T E R R A C I A L C O *** N E C T .com' which is the good place for 18+ singles from each race.
@ ttiiaa, forget Diane Von Furstenburg can we say sallie mae & wachovia?!?! I need some help too ***
How is it possible to be a broke fashionista? SHe should have told her to stop living a life she can't afford!
AWWW THAT WA S NICE BUT HOW YOU FORGET TO BRING THE OTHER 400 SHE KNEW IT WAS 900 BEFOR SHE GOT IT
That's right Ms. Mary. That's why shes so blessed.
awww that was nice of her
that was a waste of money, i guess it was nice of mary to do that but if that chick is gonna buy a 500 dollar dress than she obviously got some money and mary sent a bad message of materialism by doing this, mary should have went to a store in a ghetto and bought 400 dollars worth of clothes for the families that cant afford somethin for 10 dollars, and *** all of u guys who aren't wealthy but by jeans that cost more than 200, stick to 70 at most, its the same ***
That why she's the queen...
Job well done MJB... Although IDK about almost 900$ We in a DEPRESSION. Bump the dress u shoulda gave her GAS MONEY.
Aww, that was so nice of Mary.
I still don't care for her dramatic azz tho
i doubt ole girl was broke if she was shopping at furstenburg
We should have more people in the world like this. Kudos to you Mary, thats ma girl!
IM GUESSIN THAT WAS A GOOD GESTURE ON MARY'S PART BUT HOW IS IT A PERSON COULD JUST DROP MONEY LIKE THAT ON ONE *** OUTFIT??THE ECONOMY AIN'T GETTIN ANY BETTER.SHE MUST HAVE GOTTEN HER STIMULUS CHECK
I love Mary, but she could have given the balance to a much worthy cause... How do you mistake a $900 dress for $500 either if you can't afford don't buy it!
LoliLove: High FIVE!!!
It's getting hard out here for a ***! I'm tired of looking at those loan statements EVERY month!!
MrBeEasy has the right idea too. How about my lil brother ran out of gas the other day! lol I wanted to slap his face off, because I had to drive wayyyy across town to SAVE him!
At least this picture of her looks decent and not the normal greasy mess.
@ LoliLove & ttiiaa,
Whew...ya'll ain't neva lied! Loan payments are kicking my azz too! It was cute when I was in school and they were deferred....then my azz graduated and the bills started coming and ain't stopped yet!
And I know what you mean about the gas...my brother used my car to go to NC and left me his truck. I drove from my house to the mall (a 10 minute drive) and back with the air conditioner on and the tank went from 1/2 to almost on "E". I parked that chumpy (another of my old school words) and got my bike out the garage. Eff what ya heard.
THAT BROKE BIAAAAAAATTTTCCHHHHH! NOW GOING TO *** UP THE DRESS IN THE CLUB.
FIRST OFF WHAT IS HER DUMB AZZZZZ DOING IN DIANE VON Fs STORE ANYWAY?? ESPECIALLY IF SHE IS BROKE.
DID SHE THINK THEY WERE GIVING THE CLOTHES TO HER OUT OF PITY??
SEEMS TO ME IF SHE IS BROKE HER PRIORITY *** BE INVESTING IN AN INSANELY PRICED DRESS....SHE SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR WORK.
I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER IF HER BILLS ARE PAID ON TIME??? I BET YOU SHE OWNES A LOUIS VUTTON BAG...BUT SHE IS BROKE....PULEZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Z. THIS IS JUST STUPID.
SO WHERE DOES A BROKE CHICK WEAR A DESIGNER OUTFIT THAT COST $900.00??? THE SUPERMARKET? TO THE PARK?? A BACKYARD BBQ?? BLOCK PARTY??
Broke CHICK?!!!! SHE WASN'T TOO BROKE IF SHE WAS ABOUT TO PAY $500 FOR THE DRESS!
RIGHT NOW I CAN'T EVEN PAY $5!!!!!!!!!
Why in the hell was she trying to buy a $500 dollar dress that she had to put on layaway anyway. Obviously, you can't afford it so go buy the cheaper version and stop trying to live above your means. I bet her rent is past due and she don't have food in the fridge but wanna stunt in a $900 dress. Get outta here..
Maybe she's wearing the dress for a job interview to get some bread....or just fronting to snag a baller!!! LOL! Either way she's a poser!
Ummm, Mary, my house payment is cheaper than that....help your girl out! This is a real cause...!
very nice of Mary J
if this young lady can afford a
FIVE hundred dollar dress.....
i'm just sayin...
well done mary!!!!!!
Yes, why WAS she trying to buy a dress she couldn't afford?? That's the question...
On a second note, the pic of MJB looks really nice...I'm diggin' the gold with the 'do.
Mary if your reading this....
I went to purchase a new car, I had to leave it there because...I'm about 35,000.00 ***....can you help a sister out!
You see, that's why I heart her sooooooooo much.
This is ***. No high end store has "Lay-a-away". What are you people, idiots? On second thought, don't even answer.
I don't know, maybe it's just me but this sounds like a set up. If the girl had the dress on layaway, how could she not know how much it was? She probably saw Mary in the store and thought Mary might help her out if she gave her a good enuff sob story. Maybe I'm to suspicious. But who am I to knock homegirl's hustle fo' real.
Also, get your math game up people. If this dress was supposed to be $900...and ol girl thought it was $500.....what kind of deposit did she leave earlier($0 down) and then Mary paid $400... In the comments I keep seeing people saying $900 dress.
Well, the dress had to cost more than $900, folks
The story says she had the dress on "Hold" not on lay-a-way...they're two diffrent things.
Now I would call you an idiot...but I think it goes w/o saying! On second thought I will say it!
Oh and also it's "Lay-a-way" not "Lay-a-away"
Normally if you have enuff money to buy a 500.00/ 900.00 dress you don't put it on hold. She didn't have no bizznezz in that designer store noway. Mary you probably should have did the research on this chic, sound like she was looking for a sucka!!! I'm just sayin.....
NICE GESTURE BUT MAYBE MARY MIGHT WANNA GO TO SOME OF THESE WAL-MARTS OR GROCERY STORES AND HELP PEOPLE WHO DONT HAVE $500 TO SPEND ON A DRESS..
Awwww...bless her heart...moving along.
Awww so sweet, good for you Mary J.
Jlove56 I love your avatar. Bree is my girl!!! She rocked that season on ANTM!!
FORGET THAT BROKE CHICKEN. MARY HELP PPL WITH THEIR GROCERIES ***. HERE'S A SITE FOR PPL TO GET GROCERIES FOR $30 WHICH U WOULD PAY A LOT MORE IN THE STORE FOR. CHECK OUT THE JULY MENU FOR GROCERIES. SAVE MONEY ANYWAY U CAN. I KNOW I DON'T CARE IF I HAVE WHATEVER IN THE BANK I'M ABOUT SAVING.
Thats wassup..she been there and done that!...Good for her..That was thoughtful of her 4 real.
THAT CHICK AINT BROKE IF SHES LAYING AWAY A 900 DOLLAR DRESS!!!
Ok, she can afford to pay $500 for the dress but not $900? Shoes and accessories are still gonna cost about $400-$500.
If you can't afford to buy a $900 dress then you can't afford to buy a $500 dress. That's just stupid.
Indeed that was very gracious of Mary. Giving is what it's all about, real spit.
i wish someone would pay for my gas to get to school instead of a splurge on a damned dress. i'm being for real here.
why would she spend $500 on a dress and can't afford another $400? champagne taste and beer budget...
STOP HATING ON MARY GOD BLESSES PEOPLE WHO GIVE KINDNESS ... I THINK THATS WHAT THE SAYING IS... EITHER WAY MARY IS KINDHEARTED
Can she pay d note on D Jag??
that was real....whether ornot she conned MJB; whether or not it was on layaway...the gesture is the most important part...MJB probably saw herself when she was younger at that very moment... On the real, Mary is my idol. She's always been real from day one and is glamorous...and ya'll dont know maybe the girl bought the shoes first...u know that's what women do...I do....I buy the shoes and then the outfits to go with it.....
GOOD JOB MJB!!!
DIRECT ALL COMMENTS ABOUT MY POST TO THE FOLLOWING LINK BELOW!
LOL!!! Yall some fooools!! :-) earings... lol
Mary looks FABULOUS!!! I love me some Mary!
I could see if she helped out someone who was TRULY in need...like a homeless person or someone who had no means to feed their children or someone who's electricity has been disconnected and so on and so on! That woman could have done WITHOUT a d*mn dress she couldn't afford.
lmao at mto? who the eff puts earrings on layaway.
haterz. it's not a waste of money. as a matter of fact, your basics should be quality clothing. when you purchase cheap clothes, you end up spending more. how many times have some folks replaced that white blouse from rainbow 20 times when you could have spent a little money. let's face it, you will always have and need a white blouse.
if mary gave you 400, the last thing you'd do is pay student loans.
A Good deed for Mary J. Blidge, but if she really needed a dress she should've been in a T.J Maxx or Ross if she was that broke. The average person couldn't afford to pay that for a dress.
OH WHATEVER!! I LOVE TO HEAR STORIES LIKE THESE AND I LOVE COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE WHO MAKES SOMONE SMILE IT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD AND IF I WAS WEALTHY I WOULD DO THE SAME GOD BLESS YOU MARY!!!! I BET SHE
