Mary J Blige by Missy Elliot for V Magazine

Mary J Blige for V Magazine V#73 Fall 2011, Mary is wearing a jacket by Adrienne Landau .

“Blige says it wasn’t until fairly recently that she finally accepted her success. “I began to believe in 2005 [the year of her album The Breakthrough],” she recalls, “but 2011 was the year that I said I believe completely.” Then again, Blige has never been one to come up short on faith. “When I look back, I remember seeing pieces of what this woman right here was going to be,” she says. “And now she owns herself and she believes. When things get really hard and I have those moments of, ‘Okay, I’m not feeling too good,’ I have to remember, I believe. I believe.” read full interview here
