"Shes back with her new album 'Stronger With Each Tear', which is released on March 22nd. Ive been a massive fan of Marys voice since the late 90s and with tunes like 'No More Drama', 'Just Fine' and the tracks featured in the movie Precious, its no wonder shes still a massive superstar. Mary was looking amazing, considering she was up at 6am for a TV appearance and unlike some American artists that visit us Capital, she didnt demand anything crazy -just ginger tea!

So heres what Mary had to say to me about her new album, working with will.i.am and what she really thinks about Lady Ga Ga and Simon Cowell!"
