Mary J. Blige Fabulous For Shape Magazine

Mary J. Blige is looking extremely fit and fabulous on the December 2013 issue of Shape Magazine. In her cover photo, the 42-year-old Hip Hop Soul diva dons a bikini bottom and sports bra top, showing off her sexier and toned body.

The treadmill is fine but running outdoors gives me the best results. I try to log 6 to 8 miles a week. I could be in the worst mood, but when I do my cardio I feel much, much better […] At first it was very hard [to swim], but once I got in the water and figured out how to breathe, it was so liberating.

Others may be able to drink and have a great time, but it doesn’t work for me at this point. I haven’t had a drink in a year and three months. I had quit for a long time but started again about five years ago. I’m off it completely once more, and now I feel stronger than ever.

As they say, "black don't crack," and Mary is making this sentiment a fact.
