Macy Gray to Launch Plus-Size Clothing Range

R&B Singer Macy Gray is launching her own plus-size fashion line. Her range, entitled Humps, will launch in stores in the U.S. early in 2008. Gray, 39, came up with the idea after growing tired of fashion designed for skinny women. She says, “It’s actually for voluptuous, curvaceous girls, girls with thighs and hips.” Gray began 2007 badly after being kicked offstage at a concert in Barbados for profanity (which was part of the show), but she wasn’t aware that it was against the law in that country. She gave a public apology that night to avoid arrest. Gray released her fourth studio album in March 2007, entitled ‘Big.’ Two singles, “Finally Made Me Happy” and “Shoo Be Doo”, have been released from the album. “What I Gotta Do”, another track from the album, is featured on the third Shrek soundtrack. It is largely considered as Gray’s comeback album, after a four-year hiatus since her last studio album. The album has been critically acclaimed and seen as her best work yet. It features collaborations with Natalie Cole, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, and will.i.am, who co-executive produced the album with Gray.
