Mary J. Blige Maintains Her Sobriety This Holiday

81st Annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

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.”
