Mary J. Blige Gets Star on Hollywood Walk Of Fame!



Mary J. Blige is off to a great start in 2018!

The music sensation who turned 47 on Thursday, received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the recording category, joining the likes of Angela Basset, Viola Davis, Taraji .P. Henson and Jennifer Hudson on the coveted Hollywood walkway.

In her speech to the crowd, the singer cum actress who was nominated in the 2018 Golden Globes in the Best Original Song (Mighty River in Mudbound) and Best Supporting Actress (Mudbound) categories, said:

I am so grateful for this star right now because I’ve earned it probably three times, and I say that with confidence and not arrogance. I know my work and I understand what this means. Dee Rees called me and gave me a job and put my life back in motion with ‘Mudbound’. Dee, I want to thank you for calling me. I don’t think you understand what you did… You really really helped save my life. ‘Mudbound’ opened up doors and gave me strength that I didn’t even know I had.

    Congratulations Mary. But your hair stylist failed you on this occasion.

      At this point in her life, I’m pretty sure that The Mary The J The Blige knows very well how she wants to be styled.
      Don’t take attention away from this Black Woman’s achievement all because of a freaking hairstyle.
