HipHollywood caught up with Mary J. Blige on the red carpet of Vibe's first annual Impact Awards, where she was a recipient of an award, and asked her about the recent stories in the press about her financial woes.
"There's really nothing you can say about the negative things that are in the media about you," Mary said. "All you can do is keep pushing, keep your head up and just let people be people. [Let] haters hate and just do what you do. Use all of that to fuel you to do something better."
