Los Angeles Confidential‘s latest feature on Mary J. Blige entitled “Regal And Real” couldn’t be more fitting. The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, who is preparing for role in Lifetime Network’s Betty and Coretta, had no reservations while opening up about her past drug abuse, the molestation as a child and her refusal to enter rehab during her toughest times.
Throughout it all, the 41-year-old industry vet says she put her trust in God and never looked back.
