The February/March 2013 STYLE issue of VIBE magazine tapped Mary J. Blige as its cover subject.  And she's also helping the brand ring in its 20th anniversary.

 

Her cover and inside pics, plus how Queen Mary describes the current state of R&B....

Looking fab with her signature look of blonde swoops and chic clothing with a bit of realness added in, MJB is all over the pages of the new VIBE magazine.  And it's her 10th cover.  Yeah...10th.

She revealed to the mag how she is taking stock of things: from love and happiness, her remarkable career evolution, acting and what young artists she listens to.

 

On the subject of her style being softer: “I’ve evolved, I’m a woman now, and I’ve softened. I’ve been a tomboy my whole life. But then you get older, you get married, you soften up."

 

When asked about current R&B she says: “I am so proud of what Rihanna is doing.  She is speaking to her generation, and she’s living her life in front of them. I don’t even think she is purposely doing it. She’s such a beautiful girl, and I don’t think she knows she’s that beautiful. She’s just living her life, and leading her generation, and she has great, great songs.”

She also lists Adele, Amy Winehouse, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars as some of her other favorites.

 

Check out more pics from the issue below:

I love Mary's music, but this actin thing is NOT for her! And last I checked R&B stood for RHYTHM & BLUES which is NOT the type of music RHITARD makes!

Mary you are the original

Mary you are the original concrete rose and I have nothing but love for you. You have shared your hurts, your pain and your realness. My only wish for you is that I feel you should've had a kid or two. You would have been a great biological mother. But it's your life. Thank you for being a strong and proud survivor and an example that when God is for you who can be against you!!!!!!

First unless Amy Winehouse

First unless Amy Winehouse recorded some new msuic before her death we will not hear anything new, I guess Mary meant her old stuff, which I agree Amy was good also, I like Adele a good vocalist, Bruno Mars music is okay, as for the others Mary mentioned No thanks!!!

Thank you Mary! People

Thank you Mary! People criticize Rihanna because she's REAL and is living her life, letting you see the good and the bad...Unlike Beyonce who is so calculated and tries to act like her life is always only good and perfect...which is impossible..we all make missteps and its' okay. I have mad respect for Rihanna, Pink and Miley Cyrus...Just living their life.

She's actually really close to Beyonce. Beyonce hasn't dropped an album recently though, and to be honest hardly any of the people she mentioned are r&b.

Rihanna? Really Mary? Out of

Rihanna? Really Mary? Out of all of the talented female vocalists she said that Rihanna is her favorite. That settles it. As suspected, Mary is a HATER who won't help or give any young or up and coming R&B female singers any credit. Ugh!
