Mary J. Blige, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul covers the October issue of Ebony magazine. Mary looks stunning in a leopard print halter dress – minus the unnecessary photo shopping on the face. In the issue, Mary who’s also open about her previous struggles with addiction and depression, shared he reaction when she heard of the tragic passing of Amy Winehouse.
“When I got the text about Amy, I was lying down on the bed, I got up and read the message about her death and just lay back down again. I kept getting up and laying back down for some reason. I’d always wanted to work with Amy, so I just couldn’t believe it really. And then it hit me–that
could have been me. That really could have been me!”
It’s not surprising that Mary was heavily impacted by the death of Amy – the wonderful things is Blige has found peace and helps other young women “to reach their individual potential”.
The issue is on stands now!
