Mary J. Blige receives star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

"Ladies, let me tell you something / We come too far to lose / We'll win this battle / We suffer hard for love", she sings, adding, "Look what we're made of, attractive scars on us / This life is what we make it / Won't change a thing / Ain't worry about it, no".

"My skin is tough", she added. "But when we stepped outside that door it was hell". "We learned how to survive". My mom is a survivor. She had three jobs and she never stopped. And I want to thank God for this moment because it didn't have to be like this. I didn't know if I wanted to die, I didn't know what, I just knew I was ready to check out. "My skin is tough".

Featured guests Thursday included rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, who worked with Blige on her album My Life, record producer Andre Harrell and Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O'Farrell.

Blige was born on January 11, 1971, in the Bronx, a borough of New York City, and was raised in Richmond Hill, Georgia, and Yonkers, New York.

Born in the Bronx, Blige signed with Uptown Records in 1989 and became the label's youngest and first female artist at the age of 18. She also received a Golden Globe nomination for best original song for "Mighty River". The singer and actress were supported by her longtime friend, Diddy and record producer, Andre Harrel who both gave attractive speeches about her. "Dee Rees helped save my life and gave me the strength I did not know I had". I say that with confidence and not arrogance. "My career was stagnant", Blige said.
