Mary J. Blige

Blige is loved by all, but she has no hesitation in shouting out her LGBT fans. In 2007 she told The Advocate on growing up, "A lot of people that I knew were gay, but they were great people. They were good people. It’s not like they were alien. They were just people. That [acceptance] was just something that was always in me. I’ve never been a judgmental person because I have been through so much hell myself."
