Ebony Queen

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige, is covering the October edition of Ebony Magazine.

The 40-year old R & B icon, who will be releasing her ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues’ album on October 4th, spoke with writer Allison Samuels just days after she got news of Amy Winehouse’s death and among other things, spoke of how it affected her.

“When I got the text about Amy, I was lying down on the bed,’’ says Blige. “I got up and read the message about her death and just lay back down again. I kept getting up and laying back down for some reason. I’d always wanted to work with Amy, so I just couldn’t believe it really. And then it hit me- that could have been me. That really could have been me!”

Past dramas aside, you will also be able to catch Mary in the upcoming Fall edition of V Magazine. The article is written by producer Missy Elliott and features a killer photo shoot. Check out one of the images to your right.
