Mary J. Blige covers The Edit…
Inside the publication the star of the upcoming Netflix movie Mudbound opens up about the heartbreak following her divorce and insecurities.
From The Edit:
“A lot of the things we do in a relationship are in the name of love,” says Blige. “You want to save it, so you do stupid stuff and give him what he wants, knowing you shouldn’t. You create a monster.
“People are mean,” she goes on. “The game plan is to prey on your insecurities and get you to feel so bad about yourself that you believe everything they’re saying about you. So now they have power. It’s all a game.”
“Because accomplished people are people too. We’re all just trying to be loved and accepted, maybe have a family one day. So, when we get tricked, you don’t even realize until you’re in the middle of it. There are a lot of manipulators out here.”
“Even in the midst of it ALL, I didn’t give up on myself. So when it blew up, I had STRENGTHto KEEP going”
