The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J Blige graces the cover of the October issue of Ebony magazine and reflects on her past drug use. The singer told the mag what happened to Amy Winehouse could have easily happened to her.

“When I got the text about Amy, I was lying down on the bed. I got up and read the message about her death and just lay back down again. I kept getting up and laying back down for some reason. I’d always wanted to work with Amy, so I just couldn’t believe it really. And then it hit me—that could have been me. That really could have been me!”

Mary looks amazing, this is probably one of her best covers ever!

The issue is on stands now.
