Mary J. Blige’s tour kicks off today! The R&B diva will stop at 16 towns across America, starting tonight in Virginia Beach—and she’s bringing R&B opening acts Melanie Fiona and D’Angelo with her. And Fiona is thrilled to join the roster: “Mary J. is the sweetest,” the 29-year-old Toronto native told at Russell Simmons’s Art for Life Gala earlier this summer. “Sometimes people think the industry comes with severe attitude and diva tactics, but Mary J. is so sweet and so real and so down to earth. It’s amazing.” And if you go, take a close look at Fiona’s outfits—she designs and styles all of them herself. “I try to be really innovative when it comes to fashion because I know what I like,” she said. “My personal style and my performances are very big parts of who I am, and I should be having fun all the time. I don’t get too caught up in what other people think.” That means you'll see on a lot of variety on this tour. “I’m going to have three wardrobe changes,” she said. “And I think that everybody is going to get a little taste of all of my personalities, from the dramatic performance side to the very feminine side to my tomboy side.” Intriguing!
