Magazine Covers: Mary J. Finger Lickin’ Chicken Blige Covers ESSENCE Magazine And Gets Guest Editor Honors

- By Bossip Staff Categories: ChitChatter, Congratulations, Magazine Covers

Mary J. Blige is the June cover girl for ESSENCE magazine.

Inside the magazine Blige discusses how she finally gained confidence:

“I was never really able to look at myself in the mirror until I began to hear God telling me I was beautiful. Suddenly, other people started telling me I was beautiful, too, because I had started believing it…”—Mary J. Blige, ESSENCE

From the first time she came on the scene with What’s the 411?, Mary J. Blige’s journey has been our journey. She’s been a lover and a fighter. A mogul and an artist. She aspires and inspires. And when the “Queen of Hip Hop” visited ESSENCE’s offices as guest editor (of her twelfth ESSENCE cover!)—she blew the team away once again. Rolling up her designer sleeves, Mary got to work and left her imprint on everything from stories on fashion, relationships, money management and more. Plus, in the introspective piece, Take Me As I Am, Miss Mary reminds readers that the woman who’s most irresistible to a man is the one who loves herself.

Also in the same issue are stories about Trayvon Martin, Ledisi and Solange’s natural hair journey.
