mary j blige think she was ugly with bad boyfriend

Pop artist singer, Mary J. Blige used to think that she was....ugly. In a new interview with an Australian newspaper, she admitted that she was insecure about the way she looked. Before, that is.

I used to think I was ugly,” she said.
I thought I looked like a camel. A person who doesn’t love themselves, they will see anything that pops up on their face. I’ve seen squirrels, I’ve seen a bird, I’ve seen all kinds of animals on my face. But that is the result of self-hate. I’ve learned to say: ‘You know what? I am a beautiful black woman’.

It took me several seconds to understand the part where she said she'd seen squirrels, bird, etc. It was her own reflection in the mirror that she was talking about.

She Turned to Alcohol for Comfort
I beat alcohol dependence and drug addiction. A lot happened to me during my childhood. As I got older, these things resurfaced. In order to deal with it and in order to cope without it hurting so bad, I drowned it in alcohol and drugs. It lessened the pain for that moment. I started at 16 years old. By the time I got into the music business, it was bigger than me.

Things like this one happens, all the time. That's why we, the community, the public, needs to get together and be aware of these things. Report anything bad that's happening and police, well. Do your job right. Don't take bribes.

She Made It. Alive.

I overcame an abusive relationship by learning to love myself.

When you realize people are going to treat you the way you treat yourself, you begin to treat yourself better.

Mary J. Blige Comments on Rihanna and Chris Brown's Case

I understood what Rihanna went through with Chris Brown. I don’t want to comment on it. But I know exactly what they were both going through.”

I think Rihanna wasn't to blame, nor Chris. Reading what Mary has to say here, I think Chris's actions were from his childhood, as he stated earlier.

Hope people will learn about this story of Mary's and take it as a lesson to be learnt from.







Shine on,
Del
