Her gorgeous outfit, perfect for a royal, was a golden low-cut dress that featured a belt and showcased her lovely figure. She completed the look with a golden crown on her head, one she truly deserves.
For accessories, she wore unique golden bangles on both wrists and long earrings. In an Instagram post, Blige thanked everyone that made the photoshoot a success, writing:
"Thank you @cultured_mag !! Thank you to everyone who worked with me on this as well!!"
The singer shared more pictures from her photoshoot including one that showed her in a green outfit. Another photo showed the "queen" in a black dress that featured a cape.
The stunning dress also revealed Blige's stomach. The last picture of the set showed her in an orange dress. She also rocked a different hairdo for the snap, choosing to go with golden braids.
Blige responded to a question about being real and said she does not worry herself about acting to be authentic.
For 28 years, Blige has reigned and remained relevant in the ever-changing world of entertainment. It is a testament to the way she has reinvented herself in all those years. The singer's road to success has not been without its challenges.
From a traumatic childhood, a broken home, to issues with drug abuse and troublesome relationships, she found a way to rise stronger each time. Speaking to Cultured Magazine, she spoke of her persistent presence in entertainment, saying:
"I am still healthy, I'm still strong, I'm still Mary, I'm still fly, I can still dance my [expletive] off, I can still sing my [expletive] off, in front of my people—that was God."
In a 2014 chat with NPR Music's Jason King, Blige responded to a question about being real and said she does not worry herself about acting to be authentic. She added that she always remained herself and did not know how to do anything else.
Blige's life, career, and inspiring story is one that should be told to the coming generations. She has plans to set that in motion as she produced a documentary about her life in production by Amazon Studios.
The documentary follows the 49-year-old's preparation for her "My Life" album tour. It will also discuss and seek solutions to issues like abuse, addiction, heartbreak, and poverty.
At 49, Blige remains an ageless beauty and revealed how she maintained a healthy lifestyle. She said getting older is inevitable, but that aging is optional.
Blige stressed that the way people take care of themselves is reflective of how they would look, adding that a person's mindset also affects their appearance.
