Mary J Blige honoured on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Mary J Blige thanked Mudbound director Dee Rees for rescuing her from a dark period as the hip hop icon was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Blige said on Thursday that her life was “at a standstill” and her career was “stagnant” when Rees asked her to join the acclaimed film, for which the singer went on to receive a Golden Globe nomination. “So Dee I want to thank you for calling me. I don’t think you understand what you did. You really, really helped save my life. Mudbound opened up doors and gave me strength I didn’t even know I had.”
