Ahh, her beauty is timeless!
As the gloriously glamourous Mary J. Blige graces the cover of VIBE for an ah-mazing 10th time, we find ourselves shocked by how much soul music evolved since the 42-year-old first bust out on the scene.
Mary J., for her part, is thrilled with the new landscape — her heart SWELLS with pride as she claims Rihanna is the new face of music!
“I am so proud of what Rihanna is doing. She is speaking to her generation, and she’s living her life in front of them. I don’t even think she is purposely doing it. She’s such a beautiful girl, and I don’t think she knows she’s that beautiful. She’s just living her life, and leading her generation, and she has great, great songs.”
Aww! What wonderfully accurate compliments!!
Does Ri overlook her own beauty? Do insecurities her insecurities keep her tied to a man who once viciously beat her and has, since, shown only a minimum amount of remorse??
Regardless of how her relationship with Chris Brown plays out, Rihanna must know she is cherished by friends, family, and millions upon millions of fans.
You're the best, Ri! Don't EVER let anyone tell you otherwise!
Ch-ch-check out more glorious pics of Mary J. from this month's issue of VIBE (below)!
