In the ‘Style’ themed issue, Mary J. Blige sits down for her 10th cover story interview with VIBE and reveals how she is taking stock of things: from love and happiness, her career evolution, acting and what artists she currently listens to.
“I am so proud of what Rihanna is doing.” And adds, “She is speaking to her generation, and she’s living her life in front of them. I don’t even think she is purposely doing it. She’s such a beautiful girl, and I don’t think she knows she’s that beautiful. She’s just living her life, and leading her generation, and she has great, great songs.”
ON HER STYLE:
“I’ve evolved, I’m a woman now, and I’ve softened. I’ve been a tomboy my whole life. But then you get older, you get married, you soften up,” says Blige.
Mary also goes on to mention Adele, Amy Winehouse, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars as some of her other musical favorites. Look out for the issue when it hits stands next week.
