Could life get any better?

BECAUSE THE BACKSTREET BOYS DIDN'T LOOK SO GOOD IN TIGHTS: Being dubbed "definitive diva of the ‘90s" wasn't enough for Mary J. Blige. The chanteuse has to go and save mankind.

A Lee-animated cartoon of the diva can be seen during Blige's current concert tour, while the full series will launch on the Internet this fall. Lee said, "Mary's super-heroine alter-ego, a cross between Cleopatra Jones and Barbarella, is an inspirational character and self-described ‘Protector of the Hood.'" Blige's super powers include knowing the "411" and the ability to leap tall buildings without ruiningher nail polish.

Corrs was shocked to find more than 18,000 illegal Corrs downloads in an eight-hour period. Those downloads were made possible by a couple cases of Silver Bullets.
