Thursday, January 11, 2018 was a big day for Mary J. Blige. The singer/actress not only celebrated her birthday and a trip to the Critics’ Choice Awards but she also got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Notable names in her career including Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Dee Rees, the director of the movie Mudbound attended the event. She was also supported by her family.
The “Fine” songstress says the movie Mudbound “opened doors and gave me strength I didn’t know I had”. Blige credits Rees with calling her for a role in the movie when she was at a low point.
During the speech she says she’s not letting what’s going on in her life “get the best” of her. She also says she’s glad the star came at this time in her life even though she’s already earned it “3 times” over.
