“I used to hate everything about me” How Mary J. Blige Had To Love Herself

Written by on March 11, 2024

Mary J. Blige said “I used to hate everything about me. The sound of my voice, the sound of my speaking voice. And I used to just be afraid to hear any music back,” On an episode of TODAY With Hoda and Jenna from Wednesdsay (March 8), the R&B/Soul icon revealed some surprising thoughts about her own music. Though Blige struggled to get over this self-loathing, she revealed that these bad feelings eventually went away. Blige said: “We grow up thinking we couldn’t boast or brag or love on ourselves, and now I’m doing all that…I have so much fun with myself. I’m like, ‘Girl, you look so good. I’m so proud of you. Oh, that looks nice on you.’ And I’m by myself a lot, so I’m always like, ‘Oh Mary, I love that! Let’s wear this tonight. That’s gonna be hot!’”

Check out the clip below, which begins at about the seven minute mark.
