Mary J. Blige Owns That She's A 'Queen' In Everything She Does

Mary J. Blige made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday evening (November 13) and dished all about earning her title as Queen of Hip-Hop and Soul.

“When I first heard that term I didn’t understand that I was a Queen, I didn’t know what to do with it,” the 46-year-old entertainer told Jimmy. “I didn’t understand that I was Queen until later in my career when I heard my song ‘Family Affair’ on the Country stations. It just didn’t register to me that I was a Queen of anything, I just didn’t take it like that.”

“Now, it’s like yeah I am Queen,” Mary added. “I am Queen of everything that I do and I’m not cocky about it. I feel like I had to earn it, I didn’t understand in the beginning. I can own it now.”

Mary also talked about her role in her latest film Mudbound, which is already gaining much praise – Watch her full interview below!

Mary J. Blige Is Anointed the Queen for 'W' Magazine's Art Issue

Mary J. Blige gets a crown placed on her head for the cover of W Magazine‘s new Art issue.

Here is what she had to share with the mag:

On getting into character for Mudbound: “I didn’t realize how vain I was until I started working on Mudbound. Once I saw how my character, Florence, lived [in a shack on a farm in Mississippi], I thought, Wow, I’m really a vain person. When I went to the movie set to do the first day of fittings, I was Mary J. Blige: I had just done a tour and a show, so I was all, you know, I had wigs and weaves and all sorts of things going on, and Dee Rees was like, ‘No! We want to see you. You can’t have a perm, you’re going to have minimal, minimal makeup.’ And I was like, ‘What about lashes?’ And she said no, and I was like, ‘Really? Florence doesn’t have lashes?’ That part was a lot!”

On where she sees her career going: “I want, at some point, to not have to work so hard. I want peace of mind and acceptance of self, totally. I know that’s an ongoing process, so every single day I’m working on that, and it’s been hard ever since this challenge I’m having with this divorce. It was such a terrible thing. It made me see myself as ‘I have to be better than this’: I was never good enough; I was never pretty enough, smart enough. And there was someone chosen over me. It was like, I can’t stay, but it really let me see, Mary, you are better than that. You have to continue to grow.”
