MARY WANTS TO DRESS YOU UP!
WOTS… the “Queen of Hip Hop Soul” has teamed up w/ fashion designer Catherine Maladrino for a tshirt line that raises awareness for empowerment of underprivileged woman

Available in the designer’s boutique in NY on the 17th of February, the words “I’m Love” and “I’m Power” will grace the front of the shirts

“As a designer, I feel I have a role to play… What I want is to free women. Femininity is a strength and not a weakness.”
– Catherine Malandrino

“Catherine . . . offered to create a t-shirt collection that would celebrate being women, being strong and being free. These are not your average t-shirts.”
– Mary J Blige

Proceeds made from the shirts will go towards Mary’s charity “The Foundation For The Advancement of Women Now”

JAMIE FOXX HELPS SAVE THE MUSIC…
Seems like everyone is teaming up these days w/ other to help out different organizations… well actor/singer Jamie Foxx is not any different

WOTS… Foxx teamed up w/ fellow actor Dominic Monoghan to help launch a new music initiative… “FutureStage”

According to KN sources… the 2 celebs helped pass out instruments to students from different cities @ the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA

Since music was a major role early in his life, the importance of keeping music in schools is something that Jamie holds close to his heart

“[My career] started in classical music… I tell people that and they go ‘No, get out of here, you from In Living Color.’ I started playing classical piano when I was 5 years old.”
– Jamie Foxx, Hollyscoop

As a result of Jamie’s & Dominic’s kindness… over $500,000 worth of musical instruments will be donated to schools across the nation
