Mary J. Blige on the December 2017 Cover of W Magazine


Mary J. Blige was anointed the on the December 2017 cover of W magazine. However she has always been the 'Queen of HipHop Soul' to many since her music debut. On the cover which was shot by Carrie Mae Weems, MJB is rocking a Vintage crown from EARLY HALLOWEEN, a ALBERTA FERRRETTI FALL 2017 robe, a JOSEPH coat and DJULA earrings. The singer turned actress teamed up with Weems to talk her Oscar buzzing role in Mudbound and to create pictures which paid homage to reign of Queen of HipHop Soul.

Pologeorgis coat; Gucci jacket; Fred Leighton tiara and necklace; stylist’s own earrings.

Weems:
You have this film, this history in music. Where do you see yourself going, and what do you want now?

Blige: 
I want, at some point, to not have to work so hard. I want peace of mind and acceptance of self, totally. I know that’s an ongoing process, so every single day I’m working on that, and it’s been hard ever since this challenge I’m having with this divorce. It was such a terrible thing. It made me see myself as “I have to be better than this”: I was never good enough; I was never pretty enough, smart enough. And there was someone chosen over me. It was like, I can’t stay, but it really let me see, Mary, you are better than that. You have to continue to grow.
