“Queer Eye” star Karamo Brown pays sweet tribute to Mary Wilson: “She epitomized style, taste and class”


In the new issue of People Magazine, Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown pays tribute to Mary Wilson, one of the founding members of The Supremes and only singer to be part of the trio from beginning to end – 18 years in all:

“I first heard of Mary Wilson at the age of five. I was in my living room with my mother who was a big Supremes fan. Mary was an icon in my house because she epitomized style, taste and class. I met her in person in 2019 and that was a very scary moment. They always say never meet the people you look up to, but I can tell you she lived up to the hype. I was at GMA, and she came up to me and said, ‘You are a beautiful young man. You have a light, you have a shine. You need to work hard, stay focused and always be nice.’ What she was doing was giving back to someone who was younger, whom she believed in. That’s what an icon is — someone who understands that you give back, that you make sure the next people coming up know what it takes, and who has your back. I don’t think she got her flowers while she was here. I’m glad she’s getting them now.”
