Speaking of icons, you were always one of our biggest inspirations growing up, Mary J.

It takes a lot of time, hard work, and a lot of surviving, trial and error, to achieve greatness.

What an icon means to me is overcoming obstacles to accomplish the unthinkable and be wildly admired for having influence over a multitude of people, and that is what I've always represented.

The message of my music has always been that we are not alone in our struggles, and I'm not alone now.

For so long I was searching for a real love, but I finally found my real love, and that real love is me.
