The singer celebrated the major milestone last month, admitting she was incredibly emotional after realizing that she “made it”.
When she appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, she said, “Oh man, I feel great. When it was 12 noon that night, I just cried like a baby because I made it.
“I’ve been through hell in my life and to make it to 50 it was just beautiful. Family and friends were there, it was just wonderful. “
Mary partied with friends and family in Turks and Caicos Islands and loved her bikini body.
When Ellen showed a photo and the audience applauded, the star added, “I’ve never looked like this in my life, let alone when I was 50.”
In the meantime, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Blige has been given the opportunity to hear her old music for the first time.
She explained, “I really didn’t like hearing my speaking voice, let alone listening to Mary J. Blige, but I’ve grown so confident that while quarantine I don’t know what was just said” Listen to yourself Mary J. Blige. ” ”
She felt like an “outside person” hearing the melodies, but was amazed that “so much of the lyrics now helped”.
Last month attended a virtual birthday party with Mary Missy Elliott, Gabrielle Union, Angela Bassett, Common and gospel legend Karen Clark Sheard.
The latter began the celebrations by singing ‘Happy Birthday’, and the star’s family and friends left messages for their big day.
Angela said, “Happy birthday, dearest darling Mary. I am so happy that I can live in a time and space where you exist …
“I am overjoyed that I had moments to share the soft side of you and the exuberant side of you.”
Meanwhile, Common hailed Mary as “inspiration” and even remembered the crush he had on her when he was younger.
He added, “You look more beautiful, more alive, and bigger. You are an inspiration
“You have always been one of my favorite artists and people I have been able to connect with in this whole business.
“And I always had a crush on you when I was younger, when we were younger … you’re the queen.”
