Looks like Mary J will be honored once again.
It has been a tumultuous year for the Queen of Hip Hop and R&B, but she’s remain steadfast through it all. With a messy divorce playing out in the media, a new album, and a few nominations along the way; Mary J Blige has proven she will always come out on top.
Releasing her Strength of a Woman album last year, Mary is reclaiming her time and her title, giving us the Mary we fell in love with over twenty years ago. After recently being nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in Mudbound, she’s now receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Walk of Fame Producer, Ana Martinez stated, “Mary J. Blige is one of the most popular singers of our generation. Fans will be thrilled to see her star on the Boulevard as her career milestones are celebrated on this very famous sidewalk.”
Earlier this week, Mary J announced she was joining the Golden Globes Black Dress anti-harassment protest. The recent collaboration comes in support of a new initiative that is focused on supporting women who speak up regarding sexual harassment and assault. Due to her own encounters with sexual assault, the singer stated she supports the cause because it is close to her heart.
The Bronx native will be featured in the recording category with Diddy taking part in the official unveiling of her star. Mary will be receiving her star on January 11th.
