List of Mary J. Blige quotes.

I blame my mother for nothing, but forgive her for everything.


My God is a God who wants me to have things. He wants me to bling. He wants me to be the hottest thing on the block. I don't know what kind of God the rest of y'all are serving, but the God I serve says, 'Mary, you need to be the hottest thing this year, and I'm gonna make sure you're doing that.


"I don't know. Only God know's where the story ends for me, but I know where the story begins. It's up to us to choose, whether we win or lose and I choose to win."
