Mary J. Blige stepped into DJ Whoo Kid‘s weekend BBQ at Sirius/XM to speak on everything from why she loves Drake so much to what fans can expect from the new album she’s working on. She also brought along her new artist LaNeah!
Who does Mary have beef with? Will she ever do Dancing with the Stars? Is there another secret Madison Square Garden show coming with Jay-Z? What was her experience like on Broadway? Which rappers really move her now?
Mary also gives her “grades” on Keri Hilson, Cassie and Beyonce, shares her thoughts on White Castle, and explains why she feels she wasn’t featured in the Notorious movie.
On Drake: “I think he is amazing! Like, I’m listening to him spit, and everything just makes sense… That song “You The Best,” there hasn’t been a song like that to come out for women in Hip Hop in forever. That song is crazy! I don’t sign my name on anything I don’t believe in.”
On Chris Brown and Rihanna‘s domestic abuse situation: “I just know that they’re both young, and it’s hard when you’re young and you’re artists. It’s two sides to every story, and people need to listen to both sides before they start killing the next person. I love them both.”
