    Panel interview: SEA entertainment leaders who are changing the industry

    Women are indeed, moving the needle in the entertainment industry. Today, we’ve seen more women raising the bar when it comes to acting (Awkwafina’s breakthrough role in The Farewell) and even directing (Anna Boden for Captain Marvel). So when Netflix presented me with an opportunity to interview three female heavyweights in the entertainment industry, at the same time, I couldn’t say no.

    Mary J. Blige, Singer, Songwriter, Actress & Philanthropist

    Iconic Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and philanthropist, Mary J. Blige is a figure of inspiration, transformation and empowerment, making her one of the defining voices of the contemporary music era. With a track record of eight multi-platinum albums, nine Grammy Awards (plus a staggering 32 nominations), a 2012 Golden Globe nomination, and five American Music Awards, Blige is a global superstar. And in the ensuing years, the singer-songwriter has attracted an intensely loyal fan base responsible for propelling worldwide sales of more than 50 million albums. Born in the Bronx, New York, Blige began moving people with her soulful voice at 18 when she signed with Andre Harrell’s Uptown Records in 1989. At the time, Blige was the MCA-distributed label’s youngest and first female artist. Influenced at an early age by the music of Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and Gladys Knight, Blige brought her own gritty, urban-rooted style. She fused hip-hop, soul and honest, frank lyrics on her 1992 debut album What’s the 411? The multi-platinum set, executive produced by Sean “Diddy” Combs, quickly spun off several hits, including two No. R&B No. 1s: “You Remind Me” and “Real Love.” Blige helped redefine R&B and began forging a unique niche for herself on her more personal second album My Life released in 1994. Blige is an artist that uses her gift of song to lift spirits and touch lives while bringing her heart, soul and truth to those who are willing to listen. She is loved for her passionate, chart-topping hits like “Be Without You,” “No More Drama” and “Family Affair,” all of which have made her a force in music. And thus began the Blige movement: connecting legions of fans that identify with and have accompanied her throughout her personal travails and growth—all fearlessly related through her music. Each subsequent album reads like a chapter from an autobiography: Share My World (1997), Mary (1999), No More Drama (2001), Love & Life (2003), the multiple Grammy-winning and hit-spewing The Breakthrough (2005), Growing Pains (2007) and Stronger with Each Tear (2009). Along the way, she’s lined up a string of hit singles, including “Not Gon’ Cry,” “Love Is All We Need,” “Seven Days,” “All That I Can Say,” “Family Affair” and “Just Fine.” In October 2013, Blige released her first-ever holiday album titled, A Mary Christmas in collaboration with legendary producer, David Foster for Matriarch Records/Verve Records/Interscope Records. Blige's holiday album features her soulful interpretation of classic holiday tunes including “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “The Christmas Song.” Blige, who co-penned “I Can See in Color” for the 2009 film Precious soundtrack has branched out into acting. She appeared in Tyler Perry’s dramatic comedy, I Can Do Bad All By Myself in 2009 and starred in Rock of Ages in 2012. Taking on a more dramatic role, in 2013, she starred as Betty Shabazz in the TV movie Betty & Coretta, a biographical story about the widows of Malcom X and Martin Luther King Jr. Then in November 2013, Mary J. Blige starred as the mysterious guardian angel “Platinum Fro,” in the holiday musical film drama Black Nativity. Ramping up her acting career, Blige has guest-starred on the ABC comedy, Black-ish and the FOX musical drama Empire. In 2014, Blige released her 13th studio album, The London Sessions, which reached the No.1 position on the Top R&B Albums chart and included a behind-the-scene documentary of her recording sessions that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival 2015. Blige recently completed The King and Queen of Hearts World Tour with Maxwell and is finalizing her 14th album titled Strength of a Woman. Blige guest starred on ABC’s, How to Get Away with Murder and starred in MUDBOUND opposite Carey Mulligan and Garrett Hedlund. The film premiered to rave reviews in 2017 at Sundance and earned Blige a Golden Globe nomination.

    Sara Blakely, Founder, Spanx

    “My life was laying the groundwork for Spanx,” Sara Blakely says. After attending Florida State University, she planned on becoming an attorney. But she failed the LSAT—twice. So, she worked briefly at Disney World, then sold fax machines door-to-door. While at the office supply company, Blakely came up with the genius idea to invent a footless pantyhose that would smooth her figure and pair seamlessly under white pants. And the rest is history. Blakely spent the next two years developing the invention, writing her own patent and cold-calling hosiery manufacturers. Finally, she got a call from a manufacturer whose daughters liked the idea. She named the product Spanx. When she showed it to a representative of Neiman Marcus—by trying on and demonstrating the power of Spanx in the bathroom—the representative agreed to stock Spanx in seven stores. In November 2000, Oprah Winfrey named Spanx one of her favorite things causing sales of her Spanx to surge. In 2006, she launched The Sara Blakely Foundation to help women through education and entrepreneurial training. In 2012, Blakely was named the youngest self-made female billionaire and ranked the 93rd most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.
