Certified Diva Mary J. Blige Added to Jazz in the Gardens 2012; But Where's Our R&B Pervs?
We referred to the lineup as "lackluster." We complained about Kenny G's saxophone sucking. We called for some divas and a couple of R&B pervs à la R. Kelly.
Luckily, the JIG staff swung into action, announcing the addition of Ms. Mary J. Blige, a multiple Grammy winner who's been officially certified by VH1's Divas.
As gushingly described by Divas master of ceremonies, former Law & Order: LA star, and one-time Oscar nominee Terrence Howard, she is "one of the greatest singers of all time! ... The Queen of R&B! The one, the only, the thoroughly magnificent Mary J. Blige."

Of course, we aren't as insanely stoked over Ms. Blige as unabashed fanboy Terry Howard. But we'll admit to being mildly excited.
Still, though, we wanna know: Where's our R&B pervs?
