I asked her out on a date and she looked dead me in the eye and she said this: 'Look here, son, I respect your flirt game but my man situation is handled.' OUCH!!

2. Mary J Blige Opens Up About Molestation, Drug Abuse & Gay Marriage
Mary J Blige graces the cover of the newest issue of Los Angeles Confidential. Inside the mag, the singer opens up more about her addiction, her past demons of being molested and tells why she's for same-sex marriage. MJB tells the mag: KS: Do you consider yourself a born-again Christian? MJB: Yes. KS: And yet you’ve come out in favor of same-sex marriage. A lot of people would say that is not compatible with your born-again Christianity. MJB: I would say this to those people: I’m not God. God said not to judge anyone lest you be judged. That’s it. Who am I to point my finger? You’ve got to walk in love. To say you do not want people to be happy is so mean, so not me. KS: And yet people do have some good reasons, as you have had, for not being happy. Poverty. Molestation. How old were you when you were molested? MJB: I was 5. Mmmm … yes. I was 5. I don’t want to go into the details. It’s something that hurt me really bad. I’m still the same way. When I open up to trust you, I trust you wholeheartedly. And then when you betray that trust, it closes me up. KS: You become that 5-year-old again. MJB: Yes. KS: What you carry around with you the rest of you life—I can only speak for myself here—is the complicity in your own molestation, how you are a participant in it. It goes way past guilt. MJB: Right. You’re so right. And the quiet. The quiet. I always think about how quiet it all was. It was abnormally quiet. It was just quiet. And there are certain smells that… mmmm… well… someone was using this lotion on their hands an hour or so ago. I smelled this lotion and I had such a flashback about it all. It’s weird that we’d be talking about all this right now after me just having that flashback. Spotted at necolebitchie.com
