Mary covers the new October issue of Essence Magazine and talks about Diddy, the pressure from new artists and not being able to perform with former womanizer K-Ci.

ESSENCE: I always wondered why, and I’m not hating on Faith Evans (I love her too), but were you to be the First Lady of Bad Boy?

MARY J. BLIGE: If I wasn’t signed to MCA, it could have been me, which I believe Puff would have wanted. But I understand Puff is a businessman, so he had to go get his First Lady, which I understand. It took me a couple of years to understand, but you know, after a while I was like, “Oh, okay. He had to do that,” because he didn’t have a female artist over there.

 

ESSENCE: Will you ever sing “I Don’t Want to Do Anything Else” [her duet with Jodeci's K-Ci] live again?

MARY J. BLIGE: No. I mean, if I sing it with someone else, yes.

ESSENCE: Do you feel any pressure to keep pumping out hits because of the younger artists?

MARY J. BLIGE: I feel no pressure. I pump out hits for my fans. They just want to hear from me. I don’t compete with the young generation, I learn from them. I listen to what they’re saying, so I can get a little bit of that, so we can cross, so we can have an understanding and hear each other.
