Why Did I Take Steroids?
Maybe this should be the new film title for super black cinema producer Tyler Perry, whom soared to stardom with his best-selling Madea plays. The actor and director along with an A-list of celebrities including Mary J. Blige, Wyclef Jean, Timbaland and 50 Cent were named in connection with an Albany, NY-based steroid investigation that alleges the celebs took performance-enhancing drugs.
None of the celebrities was accused of violating the law. Instead, the investigation has focused on stopping the flow of the drugs by cracking down on doctors who illegally prescribe them without seeing patients, and on the so-called anti-aging clinics, pharmacies and other distributors that supply the drugs.
While Mary J. Blige's reps commented on the report and claims she has never taken any illegal steroids, reps from the other stars' cabinets have not yet commented.
Let's just hope Madea ain't taking these drugs to enhance that supersized chest of hers anymore.
