Mary J Blige is about to step into her first lead role in the new Nina Simone biopic. In preparation for the role, Blige says “I’ve taken acting lessons, piano lessons, dialect coaching, learning how to speak French. This is a big job and I’m going to say it: I’m nervous!”

Do you think Mary can pull it off?
