R&B artist Mary J. Blige can look forward to a number of congratulations on her 50th birthday. The stars congratulate the "Queen".

R&B artist Mary J. Blige ("Be Without You") celebrated her 50th birthday on January 11th. Friends and colleagues congratulated the nine-time Grammy winner on Instagram. For example, actor Jamie Foxx (53) published several photos of the singer and called her a true "queen". Model Naomi Campbell (50) agreed and wished her "sister" that God would continue to guide her and give her his blessings. Queen Latifah (50) also mingled with the well-wishers. "You inspire me every year," she complimented the 50-year-old.

Virtual surprise party

Mary J. Blige also enjoyed the virtual surprise birthday party that, according to "Page Six", friends and family had organized for her. Stars like Missy Elliott (49, "Work It"), actresses Gabrielle Union (48) and Angela Bassett (62), gospel singer Karen Clark Sheard (60) and rapper Common (48) took part.

The latter is said to have raved: "You were always one of my favorite artists and people with whom I feel connected in this business. And I always had a crush on you when I was younger – when we were younger. You are the queen." Meanwhile, Basset is happy "that I am allowed to live in a time and space in which you exist".
