Mary J. Blige Earns Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Meanwhile, Combs paid homage to Blige's mother, Cora, who was present. "But this thing is also about family". Then he talked about those early years when he and Mary J imagined their lives as stars.

Blige won her first Grammy in 1996 for best rap performance by a duo or group for "I'll Be There For You/You're All I Need To Get By", a collaboration with Method Man. "I used to pick Mary up in the projects and drive on the highways of NY and just dream".

Blige gushed about Combs, saying he helped keep her going in the hard times. "I'm so grateful for this star right now, because I've earned it probably three times". "Mary J. Blige has saved a lot of lives". "I say that not because of arrogance", she said, but because of all that she has endured to achieve this feat including her current nasty divorce with her former husband. "Ladies, let me tell you something", she sings. "God gave me the strength to keep steppin" and keep my head up regardless of what anybody thought about me, regardless of what anybody said about me", she continued.

"What makes Mary special, she moves people with not just with her voice but with who she is".
