Spotted: Mary J. Blige Says ‘Good Morning’ In Central Park

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

It’s a lovely Friday morning at MTV News headquarters here in New York City. The humidity has finally broken and the mornings are breezy and fair. It was even lovelier in Central Park earlier on Friday (July 2), when Mary J. Blige took the stage at Rumsey Playfield and woke up the neighborhood (and the nationwide viewing audience) with a performance on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Before performing a string of hits, the hosts wanted to see if she could help out at all in getting LeBron James to sign with the New York Knicks. “I love LeBron,” she said. “He’s a great, great person. I think he’s here. New York, do you think we can get LeBron here?”

Blige wasn’t the only star taking the air, as Maroon 5 took the stage on NBC’s “Today” in New York and Vince Neil bounced back from his recent arrest to rock a killer show in his adopted hometown of Las Vegas. Click here for these photos as well as the entire “Spotted” archive, which features over 400 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Katy Perry, the Jonas Brothers, Lady Gaga, Jessica Simpson, Rihanna, Mariah Carey Madonna, 50 Cent and Diddy!
