Mary J. Blige
Well, she's not doing press interviews to promote her upcoming stop in Houston -- the second one this year -- but we won't hold that against her. Besides, the gal is still such an incendiary and talented performer (remember her performance at this year's Grammys?) that we wouldn't mind if she pulled a Garbo on us. But one of these days, she's gonna have to explain why the hell she decided to record a last-minute duet with Ja Rule, who's skating past Puffy for the title of most overexposed man in rap, and to include it on new presses of her already perfect No More Drama album. It doesn't make the album any worse, but it doesn't make it any better, either.
