NEW YORK, NEW YORK - DECEMBER 07: Mary J Blige attends as Mary J Blige and Simone I Smith launch their Sister Love Jewelry Holiday Pop Up Shop In Long Island City, NY at Aloft Long Island City on December 07, 2019 in New York City.

Mary J. Blige doesn’t want to be called “auntie.” The singer and actress recently did an interview promoting her new STARZ  TV show Power Book II, a spin-off the television network’s hit show Power, and she was asked, “How do you feel about your fans calling you ‘Auntie Mary’?”

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul would much rather be called someone’s “sister.” “How about this. It’s like you pulled that right out of my head. I was literally thinking why can’t I just be your sister. There are women that are way older than me calling me auntie, and I’m just like, ‘Come on B,'” Blige explained.

“Come on. Can I just be your sister? Your friend in your head?” “The auntie is like, ‘Come on.’ And not a good 10 years older than me. Please, don’t call me auntie,” she concluded.
