Mary Love

Blige and Mary loves the gays, the diva reveals in the upcoming issue of The Advocate. “I?ve never been a judgmental person because I have been through so much hell myself,” says the no-more-drama queen. However, she reserves no judgment for her hip-hop peers who don’t share her tolerant point of view. On homophobia in hip-hop, Mary says:

I?ve heard a couple of guys say foul things, and those guys are not around me anymore because when they say things like that, I?m looking at them like, What makes you so scared? You don?t know who you are? I guess it all boils down to them not being sure about themselves and what they wanna do, whoever that is. I won?t say any names. And I don?t dislike them or anything?it just makes me wonder about them period. ?Cause if you?re not sure about that, then you ain?t sure about a lotta things!

Watch out, homophobes: hell has no wrath like Mary scorned. She may act demure now, but you can tell by listening to her old music that she is not afraid to get ugly on you. [The Advocate via Towleroad / Image: Getty]
