Apparently, Keri Hilson’s gently worn wigs and bobsled speed suits aren’t just for parties during the month of October. Check please! Mary J. Blige placed her vagina and Google images future in harms way while rocking the stage at Caesars Circus Maximus Theater in Atlantic City, NJ this week.

“Crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, ranch dressing” aren’t just catchy lyrics from Mary J. Blige‘s last single to crack Billboard’s Top 40. They may be apart of her daily grind if she gets a part-time gig at Burger King in order to pay off her tax bill.
