Mary Talks Love & Marriage

As you may have heard by now, singer Mary J. Blige is once again covering Essence Magazine. The 41-year old undisputed ‘Queen of Hip-Hop Soul’ acts as guest editor for the June edition, which finds the singer talking openly about her marriage and the sacrifices it takes to stay married.

Excerpts below…

Mary on the status of her marriage to longtime manager Kendu Isaacs: ”My marriage is not on the rocks. But I would be a liar and my fans would hate me if I said to them, oh we’re perfect and everything is great. We have situations just like everyone else; it’s real. But we love each other, that’s it.”

Mary on accepting the face and body that God gave her: ”I was never really able to look at myself in the mirror until I began to hear God telling me I was beautiful. Suddenly, other people started telling me I was beautiful too…”

Mary on her favorite designers: “When Gucci is on, they are on! And what I love about Michael Kors is that he makes clothes for women with curves and for women who can’t hide everything in a slinky dress but want to look great on the red carpet.”

Mary on rumors of her starting her own fashion line: “I love fashion and would love to have a collection shown in Paris. I have been offered a lot of opportunities and I’m just trying to figure out what is right for me.”


  1. She has BRIA, but every article with her is the same now. Nothing ever changes. Mary is quickly becoming boring. A career killing state to be in.

    Its also time for Essence to start giving other sistas a chance at a cover. Meagan Good is doing well and just landed her own primetime show and is engaged.

    Mary gets a cover a year. It’s time to give some other sistas a shot.

  2. Mary covers Essence…AGAIN!!! *shocker* LOL. Nevertheless, she’s pretty. (minus the tats) Okay cover.
