Question: “What do you think the motive of Mary J. Blige is in being an ‘executive producer’ when I hear that she likes you?”
HMLF: I cannot answer for Mary J. Blige except to say that when a person is famous or well-known, sometimes they will give such person “executive producer status” to add to the strength of the film. Mary J. Blige is my friend! And nothing that’s in this movie has diminished my love and respect for her.
