Do Mary J. and Mayor Herenton belong to the same church

Posted By on Wed, Apr 19, 2006 at 4:00 AM

MSNBC reports that singer Mary J. Blige says God wants her to wear bling. “He wants me to bling. He wants me to be the hottest thing on the block,” the singer told Blender magazine. “I don’t know what kind of God the rest of y’all are serving, but the God I serve says, ‘Mary, you need to be the hottest thing this year, and I’m gonna make sure you’re doing that.’”

You might recall that in his New Year’s Day address in 2004, Herenton said that God had called him to be Memphis mayor and that God gave him a vision for the city. No word on whether God wants him to have bling.
