Pink Reveals Mary J. Blige Turned Down the Idea of Working Together!

Don’t expect to hear a duet between Pink and Mary J. Blige!

The 38-year-old Beautiful Trauma singer revealed on SiriusXM’s Morning Mashup that she once tried to ask Mary to do a collaboration many years ago, but it didn’t quite go as planned.

“I went in her trailer a long time ago, I think it was when I hosted the Lady of Soul Train or Soul Train Awards and I walked into her trailer and I was like, ‘Hi! Would you ever work with me?’ She just took one look at me and she goes, ‘No.’ I go, ‘Okay! I love you, Mary! I’ll see you again!’”

But don’t worry – Pink loved it!

“That’s what I love about her, I respect it, because so many people will be like ‘Yeah, call me!’” she explained.

Then again, that awards show happened way back in 2000 – perhaps Mary‘s answer would be different today!

Mary J. Blige Opens Up About Finding Confidence While Filming 'Mudbound'

Mary J. Blige is on the cover of Essence‘s November issue, out on newsstands Friday (October 20).

Here’s what the 46-year-old singer and actress had to say:

On gaining confidence in her role as Florence Jackson in Netflix’s Mudbound: “Shedding Mary J. Blige for Florence gave Mary J. Blige some confidence… like a lot of it. [On set] I could hear people whispering, ‘She’s so beautiful.’ And I was like, ‘Who the hell are they talking about?’”

On getting into character for the role: “I had just come back from performing on the Bad Boy Family Reunion tour with all the nails and the wigs, and I wasn’t trying to depart from that. So when it came time to get into character, I was like, ‘Can I wear a lace-front wig? Can I get some lashes?’”

On letting her guard down: “If I didn’t let go and give into the character, the movie probably wouldn’t be what it is right now. It was the one thing that needed to be done, and I couldn’t let Dee [Rees] down.”
