Mary J. Blige graces the latest edition of Vibe magazine. In the latest issue of Vibe magazine, Mary J. Blige honored Rihanna for her hard work.

Vibe asked MJB about her feelings towards R&B right now, and she gave props to Rihanna.“Maybe in 2012, in the middle, I was like, ‘What is going on? What is this? Things got worse before they got better. I think things are going in the right direction,” she said. “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’s purposely doing it. She’s such a beautiful girl, and I don’t think she knows she’s that beautiful.

“They give her a hard time because she’s living her life. As long as she’s having fun and isn’t three minutes away from wanting to shoot herself, good! I want her to be happy.”
