Mary J. Blige explains why she was born to born to play Nina Simone

May 19, 2010



Mary J. Blige is currently working hard before shooting on the Nina Simone biopic, Nina, begins in the fall: "I'm in acting classes, French classes. I'm in posture classes," the singer told us last night at the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Spring Ball at New York's Pierre Hotel — but her well-documented history of personal drama may turn out to be her best preparation. Simone, who suffered from bipolar disorder, "comes from a very dark place that she could never escape," Blige explained. "By the grace of God I've escaped mine somewhat ... but still, a lot of days I have heavy days, so it's easy to channel those for the part. I feel numb from the waist down.

I CAN'T WAIT! ALOT OF THE OLDER SOULS DISAGREE W/MARY PLAYING THIS ROLL, BECAUSE SHE'S NOT AN ACTRESS BY DEFAULT, BUT THE BEST OF THE BEST FROM HALLE, WILL SMITH, TO WHOPPI HAVE TAKEN ACTING CLASSES. I SEE NO HARM IN HER ATTEMPT TO PERFECT THIS ROLL.

GOOD LUCK MARY!

Trained Actress or Not. Once The Nina Biopics Finished & Released all those Doubters will see exactly why Mary was the only Woman that could ever take this Role on & Deliver.
