Mary J homeless last year? Yesterday she received her star and it was a heart felt ceremony. She was able to celebrate her 47th birthday and receive her well earned star on the Hollywood walk of fame. P Diddy and Andre Harrell were there to show their support. Mary J is a strong example of just because your relationship is not good, doesn’t mean you can’t grow in other area’s in your life. She says she was homeless last year, and she had tears in her eyes as she shared what happened during the ceremony.
