Mary J. Blige was crowned the queen of hip-hop soul almost immediately after emerging in the music industry. Fans everywhere related to the pain and sorrow in the “Be Happy” singer’s voice. Blige has opened up about how she felt after being raped at just five years old by a friend of the family and how it affected her well into adulthood. “I remember feeling, literally right before it happened, I just could not believe that this person was going to do this to me,” Blige said. “That thing followed me all my life. The shame of thinking my molestation was my fault – it led me to believe I wasn’t worth anything.”
