Mary J Blige Records Awkward Interview With Hillary Clinton

Mary J. Blige’s chat show career hasn’t started well – an awkward new interview clip with presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has earned her a large group of Internet critics.

Apple bosses posted a teaser for the chat the musician had with the former First Lady as part of her The 411 With Mary J. Blige show online on Tuesday, a day after Clinton took on rival presidential candidate Donald Trump in their first debate.

The “interview special” will air in full on Apple Music Friday, and critics are already mocking the Family Affair singer after watching the trailer, during which Mary’s “intimate conversation” with Hillary tackles race.

The R&B icon actually sings one of her questions to embarrassed Hillary, who doesn’t seem to know where to look.

Blige crooned: “If an officer stops you always be polite, and never ever run away. Promise momma you’ll keep your hands inside. Is it a gun? Is it a knife? Is it a wallet? This is your life. It ain’t no secret. It ain’t no secret, no secret my friend. You can get killed just for living in your American skin.”

Twitter users quickly lashed out against the clip after it debuted, with one Apple follower stating: “If Trump wins it’s absolutely Mary J Blige’s fault”, while another added: “mary j blige gotta moderate the next debate. HAS TO.”

Meanwhile, Mary has far more important personal matters to attend to after filing new legal documents urging the judge overseeing her divorce from estranged husband Kendu Isaacs to sign off on her prenuptial agreement, so she can make sure it’s iron-clad, leaving the music executive no room to cash in on her fortune.

Isaacs’ lawyer insists the contract, drawn up in December 2003, is “immensely invalid, unenforceable and unconscionable”.

Mary filed for divorce in July (16) and she has already asked the judge to block Isaacs’ bid for spousal support, according to TMZ.
