To JustSaying: I'm VERY

To JustSaying: I'm VERY proud of my situation because I don't have any kids for him so there is no immediate need to rush into marriage. When and if we get married, it will be the first child for the both of us. Not every black couple can say that. Mary J. Blige is the girl and her man came with 3 kids. (Kendu has older child from a different women then his last two.) Really and truly to each his own, and I got what I wanted which was a good man with NO KIDS! Personally, I'm not interested in starting a life with someone who already created a family with someone else. For a sister who is now 28-years-old- that is very difficult to find in a black man!!

Mary is the hottness in the game right now. I saw her last night in Hollywood. She is fit to perform and hold the singing down and on point. She did not stop...OMG I have always loved her but now I respect her game even more.

[quote comment="71550"]I love Mary so much! However, the video is wack. Firstly it reminds me of that Keyshia video (except Keyshia's was an island summer theme) and secondly it reminds me of a Z-Grade video, you could get done at the mall with your Z-Grade demo...lol Boring as hell, with all those scenic shots...but she looks good..[/quote] LOL, I was about to say. Keyshia was on the beach in a bikini during the summer, and Mary is out in the snow with a fur coat during the spring!

I don't give 2 sh*ts about the video. That's my SONG!!!!! I swear! Everything I wanted to say to my husband but couldn't fidn the words, I can find on any given track of that damn CD! If you ain't married, you may not understand. STAY DOWN IS THE SH*T!

What in the low budget, green screen, boring, whackety whackness is this Mary? I love this song, but this video is the pits

I adore my Mary and I adore

I adore my Mary and I adore this song! But, this video is lame as heck. Mary looks great and she is doing her thing. But, did she have to use the video from their Alaskan cruise as a backdrop for a video of a song that could take her cd to another level? Hell, the backdrop looks like it was filmed in their deep freezer. I swear I saw an ice tray in the left corner. LOL! Rock it Mary!

I did not like this video at all. What the hell did she pay hype williams for. It had not creativity and I just expected soo much more. The record lable better do this over!! I STILL LOVE MARY

The song does speaks for

The song does speaks for itself so why even waaste time and money with this boring azz video. I love Mary and her look but none of the shots in video were good shots of here. I could see way too far up her nose in the first shot and those furs were so UGLY. PETA HATES her right now!

This is one of my favorite

This is one of my favorite songs off of her cd but......This video really throws the whole song off. I looked at the whole video expecting to see more. Not trying to make a comparison with her or Keyshia but both videos should've had more detail with them. For starters men! Mary I can say one thing love the hair!...... As for some of these comments you got me lmao.I was thinking the same things but you already said them for me.

I think i want a job as the person who makes up the concepts of videos because it doesn't seem like these people listen to the words of the song and make a video that's appropriate for the song. I think the last video that i saw that moved me was Alicia Keys video for "Like You'll Never See Me Again".

Hype is losing it. I don't

Hype is losing it. I don't want to see a winter wonderland video when the weather is just now peaking into the 70s. Stop it Hype. Mary in those furs made me hot. I know we wanna show allegiance to Hype and all, but you got the video vanguard award, now create new visions or sit down. This is my jam and I thought the video would have came harder.

I agree...she has a valid excuse...other folks aren't doing much of anything and their videos still look like crap! That concert was the THE best concert of 2008 and the best I've been to in a while too... saw it twice :-)

To reply to the video looking

To reply to the video looking like Keyshia's or Ne-Yo's videos. I have to say that back in ummm 98 Mary J Blige did a video that had the tropical island feel, but half of you probably don't remember, b/c you weren't even born. So with that in mind, Ne-Yo and Keyshia both copied Mary's 98-99 video Everything from her "Share My World" album. Anywhoo!!! I'm a BIG Mary fan and I have to say it doesn't matter if she puts on a trash bag and sings Old McDonald, I'll still say it's HOT and I'll Still LOVE IT! SO Mary I LOVE THE VIDEO and KEEP DOING THE DAMN THING! Also, saw Mary in concert in Houston, Tx last week. MARY, YOU KILLED IT GIRL! THAT IS YOUR TOUR!

I love it. If she had a man in the video it would have been just like Be Without You. The song speaks for itself!

[quote comment="71604"]The Fabulousness that is Mary J! Loves it. Her whole CD is great.[/quote] you got that right but the video was very disappointing. IDK what i expected but surely wasnt aerial shots of the glaciers . as someone said earlier, Mary is too fab to have this low budget video.

I Love Mary like everyone

I Love Mary like everyone else (and this is my favorite cut from the CD) but it is NOT okay for the queen of hip hop soul's video to look like something that came out of a high school A/V class. If you just gonna edit together a bunch of shots and change clothes/looks a few time that is not a good video. I would rather you just had a bunch of shots of you on stage or back stage or something! Boo!

This song is way to thorough

This song is way to thorough lyrically for such an uninspired video! I love Mary's music, but I was afraid she'd peaked with the video for "Be Without You". That one was creative and illustrated the meaning of the words. But here we go with more model shots and panoramic views with this one. I see my fears have been realized.
MsDonnaGirl's picture

I agree. I love this

I agree. I love this song.....but I just wish artists would put some thought into the concept of their videos, or at least make the video match the meaning of the song! MJB could've done way better...and Keyshia Cole, too.

Who the hell is directing

Who the hell is directing these video's National Geographic Channel? I mean what's this no male lead in the video or nobody in the video but the singer...so lame. I remember when video's used to tell a story other than ooh we can do an overhead shot of the land while the artist sings out in the middle of nowhere. Boo....

Mary's makeup is flawless! Especially, in the white fur outfit. I'm not loving the video concept though. What's up with all the ice glaciers and stuff???

I think Keyshia and Mary J.

I think Keyshia and Mary J. both show good taste in their videos. They're not all over the place and shakin their azz and stuff. Keyshia said she didn't know how the comparison to Mary J. got started but she loves Mary J. and is flattered that people would want to compare the two.

Keyshia drop Heaven Sent and it was she was copying Mary's Everything video. Now Mary drops her video for Stay Down and she is copying Keyshia's Heaven Sent. We need to do a better job on thinking before we type.

We know it has nothing to do with budget issues, granted she's on tour, there are time constraints but that is also no excuse! Mary is the QUEEN of hip-hop soul we need regal type videos!

Don't compare Mary's vid to Keyshia's becuz Mary did it first--"Everything", "Be Happy", and the list just keeps going!!!....so don't EVER think that Keyshia has anything on Mary--the OG--becuz Mary made it possible for Little Key-Key to exist!!! And yeah, the video is a little boring...but the track is HOTTT!!
