    The silver screen version of Tyler Perry's popular stage play, I Can Do Bad All By Myself, has nabbed Mary J. Blige as one of its stars. Set for a September 11 release, the film will also feature Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson.

    As for what the movie is about, it revolves around Blige's Tanya character, a nightclub manager, and her close friend April (Henson). Perry's alter ego, Madea, also shows up at some point.

    In other Blige news, the R&B icon plans on releasing a new record later this year, as well as appearing in an as-yet-unnamed primetime TV show.
