Check out excerpts from Mary J. Blige’s interview with L.A. Confidential:
On same-sex marriage: I’m not God. God said not to judge anyone lest you be judged. You’ve got to walk in love. To say you do not want people to be happy is so mean, so not me.
On not going to Rehab: I don’t know why. But I didn’t want to go to rehab. I believe that anything man himself can do for me, God can do for me in a greater way. I decided to pray and to seek God on my own. I just stayed in The Word. And it worked.
On working with Angela Bassett in her upcoming film Betty and Coretta [she is also an executive producer on the film]: You have to move forward. If Betty had not moved forward, Malcolm X would have died and that would have been it. I didn’t even realize that she and Coretta had been friends. Women never get a chance to have their stories told when there are important men involved. That’s what drew me to the part.
