While most of the people in the world would associate Mary J Blige with music, being one of the biggest best and most successful female artists in the music industry today, she does actually have many more strings to her bow, showing just what a talented star she truly is. Mary has tried her hand at a number of different things over the years, but there is one thing that really caught our attention, and the attention of people around the world.
For those of you who did not know, Mary J Blige took on the task of interviewing Hillary Clinton last year, while she was in the process of her presidential campaign, and the music star has now opened up about the experience. Mary says that she was so nervous about interviewing Hillary and was so worried about her lack of interviewing experience, that she decided that singing to Clinton would be a good way to start things.
Blige said, "'[I was] petrified to do the interview because I'm not a journalist. But I became one. I'm an actress so I turned that thing on and made it happen. That was a nice conversation. That was going to be my first female president, so I'm going hard for people to hear her voice and see her other than a politician."
She added, "They took one piece of the song and played it everywhere. And then they felt stupid afterwards [because] the interview was great. That's the problem - people take a piece of something that they don't understand and pick at it and tease it. It was a moment for me where I was like, 'I'm actually interviewing Hillary Clinton.' That was close to graduating from high school. My people didn't accept it. So I was like, 'Here's another hit.'"
Unfortunately for Mary J Blige and millions of other Hillary Clinton fans all over the world, it was billionaire Donald Trump who won the election and is now the President of America.
