It turned out to be an extra special day for Grammy-winning singer Mary J. Blige. Not only is it her 47th birthday, but she was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“I loved to sing. It set me free from all of the negativity and all of the confusion happening outside of our home. God gave me the strength to keep steppin’ and keep my head up regardless of what anybody thought about me, regardless of what anybody said about me. I see myself clear and it’s not all pretty, but I accept the beautiful mess that I am because it’s an imperfect me, still learning, still growing, still Mary though.” – Mary J. Blige

Sean “P. Diddy” Combs joined the unveiling, stating:

“This is about our sister getting her star, her true recognition. But this thing is also about family. We’ve been through a whole lot. We started from nothing. I used to pick Mary up from the projects. I had me a Volkswagen Rabbit. I had two rims on it because I couldn’t afford four … we would just drive down the highway in New York, and we would just dream. We would say, ‘We wanna be somebody. We wanna be big, we wanna be something for our people. And we wanna come and shake up the world.’ And we did that.”

A star so well-deserved! Congrats Mary!
