Mary J. Blige Maintains Her Sobriety This Holiday

Mary J. Blige says Christmas is one of her favorite holidays, but instead of celebrating with a glass of wine, she focuses her energy on family and friends.

During a recent interview, the 42-year-old songstress said she’s kept her over sobriety for over a year by skipping out on the urge to have a drink during the festive season.

”I stopped drinking about a year and four months ago and I’ve been to parties… it’s just a decision and something I’m not doing right now,’ she said. “I’m not saying I would never do it again but I am right now.”

She went on to say that her Christmas doesnt unloved mush cooking, either.

”It’s not a ginormous Christmas,” she explained. “It’s mostly family and a few friends if they want to stop by. I have a chef and my mom helps. Everyone does the cooking. I’m up being a host and chatting with the family.”

”I like Christmas presents,” she added. “I spend a lot on them. Or I just give people money to get their own stuff.”
