Mary J. Blige could be headed to your local bookstore in the next few years. Speaking with BV Buzz recently, Blige says it might just be the right time for her first book — a memoir ! “I think its time. I am absolutely living my dream! My dream all my life has been to help women because I’m a woman and I’m helping myself and thousands and millions of women with my story,” says Blige. While a deal has not been announced with a specific publisher, Blige believes a memoir detailing her struggles and just how she overcame them would be helpful to not just fans, but young singers looking to break into the music industry. “It’s imperative for me to help all of the younger singers who come up behind me because I don’t want anyone to suffer through what I suffered through,” she explained. “I almost ended up with nothing; meaning dead, broke and whatever you want to call it. I was given this position not just for myself but to be an example to them because they are me!” Are you ready for a memoir or even advice tome’ from Mary J Blige ?
