Mary J is sooo gifted, talented and blessed! She embodies the true Strength of a Woman! She is what a real man needs! Humble, intelligent, wise, courageous, powerful and beautiful inside and out! She made her way through the storms and fought her way through the drama! Clothed, voiced, powered, unafraid, unashamed, respected, proud and Mary! Being herself she has reached The unattainable heights of a woman who is not only a Queen or an Empress but a Goddess! The Goddess of 💕Love💕 and Life! A force of Nature that wields the power of God! A power only he can give! Mahalia, Aretha, Mary, and Fantasia are the Four Goddesses of Reign!

Mary's words always resonates with me. She was the soundtrack to my 'coming of age' and my sometimes turbulent 'adulthood'. Her albums, especially 'My Life' solidified, to me, her legacy. Mary, you deserve the award, because you, as a Black woman, ROCK!

Firstly I'd like to say that... Black girls rock has nothing to do with flamboyance. It is disgusting, detesting and sickening to see iconic figures take stage to promote wealth that doesn't exist. From my black mouth to God's ear.... How did this go this far? I feel dishonored and unappreciated. This should never have happened. Such a degrading moment! And so for this reason, I stand alone with all that I do. It shall never be in the name of a people but for my own personal goals. I speak for myself and my fellows. !!!!So Rock On Peoples!!!!

Yeeeess, Mary! I will never forget when Real Love came out... i was so young but I was losing my mind because that song was just gettin' it and it was just so, so good! From then on i look forward to every single you put out and *never* did you disappoint! So keep Rockin RnB Empress-- you carry a mighty mighty torch for the modern woman of color and you are so worthy and carry it well! Hope we meet again and this time, on an even greater stage 💌💓💗💞❣

She's speaking the truth. I remember her very first interviews. And how different they were years later. We all evolve over time but I'm not sure I've witnessed someone change as a human being that much. I've always looked up to her for that fact and am so happy she's being recognized.

liveyourlife1777  OH OK thanks for sharing this.. .. Now if those millions upon millions of dollars and mansions aren't making Mary J Happy.. she should donate it all away........... She Has the best of money to afford the best therapists .... yet in 3rd world countries where people go through harsh realities while never seeing a therapist in sight..........

LongHairDontCareAlwaysSlayedRingnBaed .Most capricorns have serious looks cause they tend to be serious people. People tell me to smile when I don't even realize I be frowning lol. And money don't make you happy.

Mary is every woman. She has represented women of every race , culture,age and those who gone through it and will go through it. But still dug themselves out that black hole . You dont have to have the top vocal range to be considered a legend she doesn't but she can still take you there. Love u MJB
