Angie Martinez gifts this today, reminds at the start that Mary is a queen, has given much of her life to the public. And indeed this is leaking, tortured Mary. A complex terror in company, there are reminders from all three regal divas featured here that no one can fuck with you, you should fuck the world, resist buckling when pushed, feel yourself and pay no regard to whether or not you're being felt back. At the same time, you and your capacity for self-love are not just sane or crazy but dynamic; Wayne says there are times when you look at yourself in the mirror and are a challenge to your self as much as any other that drives you. Even Sean Combs talking about the pain one must move through to get to dancing, the crisis of being blended, mixed with violence, peace, shame in defeat. We assume some of these issues will come up in the Nina Simone biopic Mary is working on, also guessing that work moved her into the raw 'nom nom nom' noises she's hurling out on the chorus.
