Photo & Video: Mary J. Blige "Music Saved My Life" World Tour, Malaysia Press Conference

Don't need no hateration, holleration. In this dancery. Let loose and set your body free. Let's get crunk 'cause Mary's HERE!

Heheh! Hail Queen of Hip Hop Soul - Mary J Blige!

She is in town for her Music Saved My Life World Tour! The media conference was held at official hotel, Mandarin Oriental on 7 Feb 2011. Mary J Blige (MJB) arrived at KLIA the night before.

MJB with the organiser, PR Worldwide Sdn Bhd and sponsors of the concert in Malaysia. Thank you - Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Prestige Limo,, ntv7 and Diva Universal!

MJB and the lucky contest winner. She won some lucky tics and get to chill with MJB! (Insert green-eyed monster here! LOL!)

I have always been a fan of MJB since her "What's the 411?" days. I have her CDs to prove it. LOL! Back in those days, people still go out and buy those silver shiny discs.

I used to collect her CD singles especially during her "No More Drama" days where she collaboated with kick-ass remixer Thunderpuss...who transformed her from an R&B Queen to anthemic dancefloor club goddess! I remember the days when I traveled all the way to Singapore just to raid Tower Records and HMV for CD singles. CD Singles were never released in Malaysia due to low demand. But now, physical CD singles are already extinct, just like Tower Records.

This is the woman who can voices what we can only feel. MJB lifts spirit, touch lives and evokes emotions with her soulful voice. And yes, her music can be a life saver too!

In the press conference, she confirmed that she would be playing jazz legend, Nina Simone in a movie. However, the movie is still pending due to funding issues.

"The Music Saved My Life Tour" is the ninth concert tour by MJB, covering North America, Europe, Asia and Australasia to support her ninth studio album, Stronger with Each Tear. The tour's title comes from her personal viewpoint of music after her battles with drug and alcohol abuse.

Check out some snippets during the Q&A session with the media where Mary J talks about how music saved her life, new upcoming album and last but not least saying "I LOVE YOU MALAYSIA" in Malay Language.
