These days people confuse sexy with trashy. For example, J.Lo sells sex appeal and she has it, but I personally find her to be trashy, slutty, and try hard at times.


Queen MJB was a sex symbol because she was the typical round the way girl that was down to earth, had street smarts, was down with the black community, never had to put on the stank Hollywood attitude, and her music moved even the hardest hood dude's soul.


The fonts in here calling her an unsexy auntie sound like ignorant children, and MJB's career started when I was an infant.

Beauty and sex appeal is just subjective and as personal as the person making the judgement own tastes. Her ex K-ci was a sex symbol himself, so she was sexy to young black men in her younger days.

Ive known of Mary my whole life, what you said is null and void

She doesn't ooze sexyness and she didn't present herself as such. However she had great fashion sense. She doesn't get the praise she deserves in that department.

I don’t know who is styling Mary but she looks better now than when she was younger. She doesn’t have to been known for sex because she is now a legend.


When she first came out I don’t remember RnB girls being known for sex, especially not the way women are known now. That’s a good thing because when Lil Kim for example wears something she would have in the past it’s not as cute as it may have been 20 years ago.

Mary looks are timeless. She is our sexy aunt that has money, a new boyfriend and a nice house. I love her. She will never be over 40 or 50 her age will magically disappear.

Mary is very beautiful to me but not sexy. She also never tried to showcase sex appeal either. She gave you very rough girl from the hood. Over the course of her career she got more into showcasing skin.

She gives auntie vibes.


She’s more woman “sexy”, not man “sexy”.

She also doesn’t have a very sexual image, which is good tbh. Never posed for playboy, doesn’t seem all tooprovocative like lil Kim or Meg the Horse.
Not Meg the horse omgggg. I can’t. anyway I agree.
