For me, Mary J. Blige is a lot like Jell-O: there’s always room for more. So, I’m PSYCHED to hear that she’ll be joining the cast of Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself, alongside Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson and Perry. Now, I know that Perry’s films can be a bit polarizing but, personally, I’m a fan. And I think Blige is a perfect choice for one of Perry’s projects. Much like the female protagonists in many of Perry’s stories, Blige has gone through struggles and emerged victorious. She’ll get a chance to show off some acting chops, much like Janet Jackson in Perry’s 2007 flick Why Did I Get Married?, and we’ll probably get some new Blige tunes via the film’s soundtrack! It’s a win-win. What do you think of Blige’s casting, Music Mix-ers?
