Mary J. Blige Covers Billboard Magazine
Here is portion of Mary's interview with Billboard:
Blige has spent most of her adult life struggling with alcohol and cocaine. Right now, by relying on her faith (she has never wanted to go to rehab), she has strung together two solid sober years since last drinking. But she knows herself well enough not to rest easy. "I've done those things for so long," she says. "I would stop drinking and then I'd start again. This is the second time that I've stopped drinking. It's peaks and valleys, peaks and valleys."
Her low point came at what should have been a joyous time: working on the songs for her second album, 1994's Sean Combs-produced My Life, which went on to be one of the year's biggest records, selling nearly 3 million copies. She was just 23 and wracked with self-loathing and doubt about her talent, her appearance, her worth as a human being -- all of which she connects to an incident of sexual abuse by a family friend when she was 5. "I was ready to just check out," she says now. "It was a moment -- I can't get into it -- but I saw my life going and I was grabbing for it. I was like, 'No, no, no, no, no.' That's when I realized that I don't want to die. And I switched, and I started praying and crying, and my life shifted right there."

Janice tells Bill you will not call her a liar.
TMZ reports, These are pictures of Bill Cosby taken by Janice Dickinson, just before he allegedly date raped her.
Dickinson says she went to Lake Tahoe in 1982 to see Cosby perform. She says the comedian told her to come to the hotel and he'd help her with her career.
Dickinson told ET during dinner he gave her a pill and some wine, and the last thing she remembered was Cosby "in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me." She says the next morning she was naked with semen between her legs.
Dickinson tells TMZ ... she took these Polaroids of Cosby in the hotel room after she took the pill but before she blacked out. You see Cosby lounging in the colorful patchwork robe, with a 40 of malt liquor by his side.
