I know who I am. I am not perfect. I’m not the most beautiful woman in the world. But I’m one of them. Mary J. Blige
that’s it in a nutshell. she is just something else. i have not been a fan forever, but i have been a fan for some time now. she is real. she is down to earth. she is easily relate-able. i don’t have to guess who she is. it’s pretty clear. what is surprising though are a couple of things. the first is how she remains relevant. after the success, the ups and the downs, she continues to be a testament to telling the truth. if there was ever a symbol of healthy growing up, mary j is “it”.
shine on mary. shine on.
“Whole Damn Year”
Tryna find a way to explain this Why you can’t touch me tonight? I can feel you’re getting impatient But I really can’t let you inside Bad, how deep the pain is Or you just couldn’t believe And yes I’m good on the surface But I’m a mess, I’m a mess underneath See winter took most of my heart And Spring punched right in the stomach Summer came looking for blood And by autumn, I was left with nothing
It took a whole damn year to repair my body It took a whole damn year It took a whole damn year to repair my body It’s been about five years Gon’ take a long long year for me to trust somebody Gon’ take long long year Gon’ take a long long year for me to touch somebody It’s been a bad five years
i purchased her new collection titled london sesssions and really glad i did. here are some of the highlights for me.
