Power Book II: Ghost, which is the sequel to the original series, was ‘written exclusively’ for Mary J. Blige according to Method Man. Recently, Mary discussed her love of acting. She said, “You get to give all of this energy to something on a piece of paper, and what makes it real is what you really feel. So I get to give anger or I get to give sadness or strength or whatever I’m feeling or wherever I can grab it from — my past, from something bad that happened, from something good that happened- give it to this character and let them live. And that’s therapeutic for me because it gets it out of me- the things that I can’t deal with or do anymore, or won’t do, I have to give it to the character.” Method Man said, “Mary brought a big audience with her. They knew what they was doing.” He continued, “Plus, Mary was a fan of this show and I think this show was written exclusively for her, especially with the Monet character which I think she is brilliant at. I love seeing Mary outside of her comfort zone as far as being on stage and singing and all that. She’s been getting her feet wet in this acting game and there’s only room for improvement and she has all my support.”
