Mary J. Blige Has Been Experiencing “Growing Pains”

Mary J. Blige recently hit up BET’s 106 and Park for a performance of music from her new album, “Growing Pains.” And interestingly enough, with an album title that reminds me of one of my favorite 80s sitcoms, it looks like Mary’s sporting some retro-looking Mom jeans here. While the jeans are a bit high for my taste, I’ve learned that it’s best not to question Mary and to simply trust her instincts. And the bob she’s rocking seems to be catching on at the moment, with Katie Holmes busting it out recently as well. On the album, it’s clear that even though Mary resolved almost seven years ago to leave the drama behind, it’s managed to catch up with her. The result is a mix of hip-hop and R&B that cautions the listener about the pitfalls of love. Make sure to to check out these pictures of Mary rocking out on stage because her facial expressions are awesome.
