Mary J Blige crazy over Lil Kim Dancing
[examiner.com] Mary J. Blige is coming back stronger than ever this fall but, the Queen of Hip Hop/Soul says Lil Kim being kicked off 'Dancing With The Stars' made her go crazy.
"They jerked her. I was pissed," Blige told DJ Whoo Kid at Sirius Radio.
For fans of both Grammy winners, it is known that Blige and Kim have been notorious 'sisters' for years, sharing everything from fundraisers and awareness campaigns to music videos and singles like "I Can Love You" ("Share My World" album). Therefore, it comes as no surprise that Blige would be rooting for the self-proclaimed Queen Bee. Needless to say Mary, with her sister in law, was yelling at the TV when Kim was asked to take a final bow.
"We was cursing at the TV." "I knew she rocked the whole season," Blige went on to tell DJ Whoo Kid.

⊿ Amber Blogs About Experience With Kim Ok so thought i'd better get cracking on my wicked LA experience. Not only do i luv the States for it's amazing junk food BUT--- the best part was that i was out there working with The Queen herself, Queen Bee Lil Kim! She was on FIRE on set for my second single. Not that i have even released my first single yet, but i like to work, so thouight lets shoot it NNNOOOWWW!!! No time like the present after all..
Kim is an amazing performer, sexy, energetic and man can she boogie! That girl can dance! Not surprising then that she did so well on Dancing with the Stars in the US.
We went crazy together on set, really let rip and went mad- it was awesome. I was privledged enough ( and thats an understatement) to have RAGE direct my video. He has directed videos for 50 cent, Soulja Boy, The Game, Mims, Yung Berg, Jim Jones - the man is the SHIT! The shoot took place in Hollywood and was a fuckin awesome day. The shoot went til bout 3am. everyone worked so hard, the day was truly amazing and inspiring- every now and then i would just look around me and smile. I actually felt quite proud, albeit it was a widdle bit SURREAL!
