Mary J Blige Hosting The View, Assures Panel ‘I’ve Never Done Crack’

Whoopi Goldberg is out of town, and so the unfortunate soul selected to sit in “The Whoopi Cushion” for today’s show was R&B star Mary J. Blige. The panel asked her about her recent experience attending Whitney Houston’s memorial service, which she went to despite her normal policy of never going to funerals. She became visibly emotional describing her feelings about Whitney’s death, saying “she was everything to women like us,” and noting how disappointing it was for her to die just when she seemed like she was getting her life together.
The conversation then turned to Mary J. Blige’s own struggles with addition to cocaine, which she has been open about in the past. She talked about the importance of one’s environment and how changing the people she surrounded herself with and turning to religion enabled her to give up drugs and alcohol. Also, somewhat bizarrely, she was compelled to assure the panel “I’ve never done crack, just so we’re clear.” But…no one said you did! It was an odd comment in an otherwise honest discussion about the perils of fame. You can see their full conversation in the clip below via ABC:
