Interview with Mary J. Blige, 2012
Angie Martinez: "Me and Mary have had many moments like that, she’s my friend so maybe that’s a little different. It’s a little different because a lot of the things that people want to know about her or want to know about that situation, I already know. Me and her have had dinners and talked about it multiple times so when she comes in to the station, I’m more helping her tell everyone. I’m more leading her to give everybody the information they want to hear.
This girl put her heart on the line for people for so many years. She made a mistake and she did something that didn’t turn out like she thought it was going to.
"It’s a different type of conversation, that’s the only difference because I kind of already know the answers to it but I still try to approach it from not really knowing because I don’t want to leave anything out for anybody. She was really crushed, rightfully so. This girl put her heart on the line for people for so many years. She made a mistake and she did something that didn’t turn out like she thought it was going to and then for people just to be treating her like that so harshly, she didn’t hurt anybody. She didn’t hurt anybody, it was hurtful, she’s a human being who’s all heart so it hurts more."
