It was a double dose of celebrations yesterday for Mary J Blige as she turned 47 as she finally also got her Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

In her speech, the singer said "Am so grateful for this star right now because I've earned it probably three times, and I say that with confidence and not arrogance".

The singer's longtime pal Sean "Diddy" Combs led fans in a chorus of Happy Birthday as he saluted the Family Affair star on Hollywood Boulevard. "I remember the expression on Mary's face when I would say to her 'Your voice is going to sing with rock legends". Blige has saved a lot of lives. "Mary receiving a star on the Walk of Fame, is like black women and little girls from around the world with a dream also receiving one".

Diddy, music executive and producer Jimmy Iovine and a coterie of luminaries from the entertainment industry attended the unveiling. "Blige has saved a lot of broken hearts". During her emotion speech, the Grammy Award-winning artist broke down, revealing that she was without a home past year and ended up taking shelter at Jimmy Iovine's house in Malibu.

Blige continued a special California weekend after being nominated at the 2018 Golden Globes for best performance by an actress in a supporting role for her contributions starring as Florence Jackson in Dee Rees' Mudbound. You really, really helped save my life. "'Mudbound'" opened up doors and gave me strength I didn't even know I had".
