Mary J. Blige has always been an outspoken member of the hip hop community, and now she has officially spoken out about her support for gay marriage.
The ‘Be Without You’ singer recently attended the Democratic National Convention, where she was asked about her feelings on same sex marriage while backstage.
She told radio host Yetta Kurland in a video:
"I think it’s wonderful. I think people that support love, it’s amazing. It’s love."
In an interview with The Advocate back in 2007, Mary noted that most of her fan base consists of the lesbian/gay community and that she supports them since they support her.
We’re glad to see Mary speaking out on her support for gay marriage. We hope this encourages other celebrities to do the same!
