Blige, Clin­ton in­ter­view clips face ridicule on­line

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

A pair of clips teas­ing Mary J. Blige’s in­ter­view with Hil­lary Clin­ton on her up­com­ing Ap­ple Mu­sic show “The 411” isn’t win­ning over so­cial me­dia users.

The teaser fea­tur­ing the R&B singer croon­ing Bruce Spring­steen’s “Amer­i­can Skin (41 Shots)” be­fore clasp­ing hands with Clin­ton was mocked on­line af­ter it was re­leased Tues­day by Ap­ple.

Inae Oh of Mother Jones wrote in in a story ti­tled “Some­one Please Ex­plain What the Hell Is Go­ing on With This Mary J. Blige, Hil­lary Clin­ton In­ter­view” that the clips “cre­ated far more con­fu­sion than the ex­cite­ment Ap­ple likely in­tended.”

Spring­steen wrote “Amer­i­can Skin (41 Shots)” about the 1999 po­lice shoot­ing death of Guinean im­mi­grant Amadou Diallo.

“The 411 with Mary J. Blige” is set to de­but Sept. 30.
