The Best Advice from Chaka Khan
Mary J. Blige shares the most powerful pieces of advice she has received over the years from her most admired mentors.
- Chaka Khan gave me some of the best advice that I've probably gotten in my life. To get it from her, someone I absolutely love, it just meant absolutely meant and means so much to me. And it was to get out of my own way. It's still very powerful right now because when I'm in the way, everything goes wrong. I'm constantly forgiving myself. Not only for the younger years but just for the mistakes I make now. I'm forgiving myself really quick because when you don't that's when you end up down. But when I move and let God do what he does or the best in me do what I do, everything is amazing.
