Speaking about her turbulent few months, she added: 'I chose life. At anytime we all go through dark times.
'You might lose something when you make a positive choice and lose something when you make a negative choice, so for me it's best to just lose whatever you’re going to lose to get your life back.
'My fans have saved me too. It's only when you hear people's testimonies that "you saved my life" or "helped me get out of an abusive relationship" that you realise going through these hard times makes you stronger.'

Mary has turned to fitness alongside prayer as a mechanism to keep her strong in mind, as well as body.
She explained: 'I chose to love Mary from the inside out. I'm not letting my hairstyle carry me or my jacket or boots.
'I can look at the mirror now when all this stuff is peeled back and say "I like you". Finally. My secret is positivity, water, prayer.'

'I run too, but the most I can do is three miles because I don't really like running. But I get it done.
'I have a nutritionist and I found out eggs and dairy we're causing swelling and inflammation.
'I was working out really hard and losing weight, but around my middle I couldn't work out what was going on. So I stopped eating dairy for a week and immediately I saw it was the problem.
'So when I'm home I try to keep it gluten free, keep breakfast kind of lean.'

Although she is keeping a positive attitude for her fans, her divorce battle still rumbles on.
Isaacs believes the R&B songstress should help him pay for his personal training sessions, private chef and a $1,000 allowance for new clothes.
Mary also fired her husband as her personal manager throughout their marriage and left him with 'no source of income', Isaacs argued in papers filed to the Los Angeles Superior Court last month.
But for now Mary is focusing on the US elections - after having interviewed Hillary Clinton for her The 411 series with Apple music.
She said: 'It was one of the highlights of my career!'
