After winning rave reviews for her portrayal of civil rights activist Betty Shabazz on Lifetime’s recent ‘Betty & Coretta’ (Angela Bassett), Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige found herself in Los Angeles this weekend being honored at the VIBE Impact Awards.
Joined by celebrities like Ciara, Future, Diddy, and more, the magazine toasted their own success of 20 years in print as well as to Mary’s two decade long career as well.
The ultimate honor comes in the form of the singer’s latest cover of the hip hop publication for February/March 2013. Many may not know, but Mary has covered Vibe magazine more than any other artist since its debut. As ever keep it locked to That Grape Juice for more from this spread as it becomes available.
