She wants to do a duet with Lady Gaga! She thinks Justin Bieber is awesome! These are just a few of the items she spilled during an exclusive fragrance luncheon today!

This week, I was lucky enough to have a very intimate fragrance luncheon with R&B singing sensation Mary J. Blige . The topic at hand was her amazing perfume that’s sold record numbers on HSN (and she’s back again TONIGHT) but you can’t keep girls from dishing about boys, skincare, music and perfume. Here are some cool items she spilled during our conversation:

It took her two years to develop the fragrance – The singer took her time developing her signature scent, named My Life after her iconic song.  “I didn’t want to put anything out there that I wouldn’t want my name behind,” she said. “My fans would tell me the truth if they didn’t like it.”

She wasn’t really a fragrance person growing up – She was turned off as a child by the overly floral fragrances her teachers would wear as a child, so it took her a while to wear them at all.  Later, as an adult, she started playing with the mixture of different scents, which is how the idea for her fragrance was born.

Even Taylor Swift likes her perfume - While the two were chatting backstage at the Today show this Wednesday, they were trading notes (as Taylor is developing her own fragrance.) She said that Mary’s fragrance was “yummy” and that she loved it!

She would love to do a duet with Lady Gaga and adores Justin Bieber - “She can really sing! It’s definitely on my list of things I really want to do!” she said.  She also loves The Biebz, but thought she might be a little “senior” to sign on for a duet with the talented teen. (As a fan, I disagree. I think they would rock out!)

She has some big projects lined up – She’s heading to Europe for a while for a long tour after her HSN, she’s reading the script to film the movie version of the hit Broadway play, Rock of Ages. She’s in the studio recording an album that will release around February 2011 AND she might just be launching ANOTHER fragrance. This is one busy lady!

Her favorite beauty product (other than her fragrance is…) Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel! The star loves to slather the all-purpose moisturizer on right after the shower and either dab dry or wrap up in a robe and let her skin absorb the moisture. This is also one of my favorite beauty tips, BFFs!

If you’re as big of a fan of the singer (and her yummy signature fragrance) as I am, DO NOT MISS her return to HSN TONIGHT at 12am, then tomorrow at 1am, 8am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm, 9pm, 10pm ET. She promises big surprises (Oprah Winfrey called in last time).

Tune in so you can check out the new gift set, which includes her sexy, earthy fragrance as well as a scented body wash and amazing body cream!
