Superstar Mary J. Blige will make a personal appearance this Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Nordstrom at Garden State Plaza in New Jersey to launch her new sunglasses collection, Melodies by MJB. You may remember her New York personal appearance at Bergdorf Goodman on Fashion's Night Out. Mary J. Blige rocks. She's also one of those people who always seems to get referred to by her full name, middle initial included. Food for thought. [Rackedwire]
