In the current issue of Ebony Magazine, the queen of hip-hop soul, Mary J. Blige, who’s been candid about her perils with alchohol abuse shares what went through her mind the moment she heard about Amy Winehouse’s death.

“When I got the text about Amy, I was lying down on the bed. I got up and read the message about her death and just lay back down again. I kept getting up and laying back down for some reason. I’d always wanted to work with Amy, so I just couldn’t believe it really.  And then it hit me—that could have been me. That really could have been me!”

Powerful.
