Speaking to ET about the documentary, Mary opened up about why it was important to reflect on the dark parts of her upbringing.

“To go back and actually show them [fans] where the pain came from, it was heavy, but it was nothing because those are my fans. In order to do a My Life documentary, you have to go back and show people what happened, you know? Why it happened and where did all this pain come from,” she shared.

Mary added, “Just speaking about all of that and how my mother was single and she was trying to raise us and she was being hurt. And she was in pain. And we all was in pain, but we were trying to survive without everyone knowing we were in pain.”

FYI: Mary wore an Alexandre Vauthier Couture look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
