Mary J. Blige: Trying to Reconcile Bling with God

Hip-hop music artist Mary J. Blige was asked the following question in an interview: "Mary, you're a devout Christian; how do you reconcile bling with God?"

She responded: "My God is a God who wants me to have things. He wants me to bling! He wants me to be the hottest thing on the block. I don't know what kind of God the rest of y'all are serving, but the God I serve says, 'Mary, you need to be the hottest thing this year, and I'm gonna make sure you're doing that.' My God's the bomb!"
