I see myself clear and it’s not all pretty, but I accept the beautiful mess that I am because it’s an imperfect me, still learning, still growing, still Mary though” she said.

Sean Combs whom is also known as Diddy and Blige’s longtime friend joined the unveiling. He said;

“this is about our sister getting her star, her true recognition. But this thing is also about family. We’ve been through a whole lot. We started from nothing.

I used to pick Mary up from the projects. I had me a Volkswagen Rabbit. I had two rims on it because I couldn’t afford four we would just drive down the highway in New York, and we would just dream. We would say, ‘We wanna be somebody. We wanna be big, we wanna be something for our people. And we wanna come and shake up the world.’ And we did that.”
