R+B queen MARY J. BLIGE has compared recording the perfect album to cooking a good meal. The I'm Goin' Down hitmaker is baffled by singers who put out albums every year, insisting a good LP takes a lot of time and energy to make. She says, "It's like the difference between a rotisserie meal and a microwave dinner. It takes hours to get right, but it is going to be really good and you won't forgot it. I'm like a nice rotisserie - caramel-coloured and well-seasoned."
