Below: Mary J. Blige has been slapped with another lawsuit — this one alleging she defaulted on a $500,000 loan to Bank of America. This comes just months after the singer was sued for defaulting on a $2.2 million loan! So when HipHollywood asked the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul how she handles the negative reports in the press she told us that, “negativity will always be there…you just have to let the haters hate”.

We caught up with MJB at Vibe Media’s 20th anniversary celebration where the singer was honored with the first ever Impact Award. Check out the video below to see how Mary felt about the honor! – Hip Hollywood
