Mary J. Blige Speaks On Strength Of A Woman Album
Mary J. Blige is known for being brutally honest in her music and she recently let some brutal honesty rip in a tell-all new interview. As previously reported there’s lots more drama brewing between MJB and Kendu Isaacs amid reports that he took over $400K of her money to spend on a mistress (allegedly Mary’s protege Starshell), and wants $110,000 in monthly spousal support.
Now she’s speaking out and finally confirming that cheating indeed DID play a part in her divorce.
Mary recently stopped by The Ryan Cameron Morning Show With Wanda Smith and dished on her new “Strength Of A Woman” album that hits stores today as well as her love life.
According to her, the album title is just a coincidence….
“Unfortunately, the album wasn’t titled because of the situation, it was titled about a year ago. […] I guess it was destined to be this.”
and she was “humiliated” in her marriage but suffered through it.
“I remember when I thought I found the love of my life and I told everybody on “Be Without You.” This is really messed up, I didn’t wanna be here, I thought I was gonna be in that situation for the rest of my life. That’s why I suffered through it, that’s why I was humiliated through the whole thing because I really wanted it to work and it just didn’t.”</blockquot
She also spoke candidly on coping with her “dark days”…
“Sometimes I have dark days, sometimes I have light days. I’m having dark moments, I’m just going through it right now but there’s light at the end of the tunnel. That’s what the album represents.[…] I’m indestructible, I’m not going to let this destroy me. I’m going to keep people around me that make me smile.”
and finally admitted that there was creeping in her marriage because someone wanted a harem.
“You don’t know why a person wants so much later but this is not the deal we made, we didn’t make this deal for you to have a harem. We made this deal for it to be me and you.”
Poor, poor Mary, she didn’t deserve that.

On compromising her morals for Kendu:
“When you’re in something for so long, you feel like you’re in it and you’re dead. You suffering, you going through all the motions for this person. You are losing your morals, you are losing your soul just to keep this man. Just to keep this thing going, to protect him cause this is what you think you’re supposed to be doing in your marriage. Until all hell is exposed and then when it’s exposed then you gotta go. Not that you didn’t have a feeling already.”
On Kendu being jealous of her success:
“Of course [he was jealous]. That’s a no-brainer. You dumb yourself all the way down and you pull yourself all the way back and you say ‘take everything’ but take care of me though. And then they don’t and then you end up here”
MJB fans are currently going IN on Kendu after listening to “Strength Of A Woman.”
