Mary J. Blige was a guest on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’ today.  The hip hop legend sat down with Drew for a candid chat to discuss her new BET series, ‘The Wine Down With Mary J. Blige,’ the new season of ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ on Starz, her new children’s book,’“Mary Can!’ and her complicated divorce from her former manager Kendu Isaacs.  “While I was in the marriage, and for years I’d been insecure, didn’t like the sound of my voice, didn’t like what I looked like, didn’t like anything about myself and then when I got married the person really just watered that seed of my own self-doubt and my own insecurity and made it worse,” Blige said.  “What you say about yourself and how you think about yourself is way more important and effective than what anybody else can say or think about you. So if you speak positivity over yourself, and that’s what I started doing,” she added. “You have to believe that about yourself.”
