And Drew Barrymore is a self-proclaimed cat lady now.

Can't keep up with what's been going on in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what stars, artists and brands have been up to this week on social media.

Mary J. Blige Receives Walk of Fame Star

After nine Grammys, 13 studio records and 23 film and television roles, Mary J. Blige received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her contribution to the music industry. The singer, 47, also celebrated her birthday on Thursday. Diddy was on hand to show his support for his longtime friend and collaborator.

Blige was filled with emotion sharing her story to a supportive crowd. "There's been times in my career that I didn't even want to step out of my house, because I was hurt so bad," she said. The singer also talked about filing for divorce in 2016, revealing she was homeless at the time. She thanked music producer Jimmy Iovine for taking her into his Malibu home. 

Blige ended the night at the Critics' Choice Awards in a gold Vivienne Westwood gown, styled by famed stylist Law Roach. 

Listen to Mary J. Blige's "Awards Chatter" podcast, where the singer reveals that she "could've 'easily' died like Whitney Houston," here.

Victoria Beckham's Posh Bathroom

No stranger to all things posh, Victoria Beckham showed off her personalized bathroom door while filming a project with her team. She revealed to Into the Gloss what products she keeps behind that door, and it reads like a seasoned beautyphile's go-to stash.

What we learned: From Bioderma's makeup wipes ($10) to Sarah Chapman's Skinesis Stem Cell Collagen Activator ($265), Beckham uses a wide spectrum of facial products. She usually has a hairstylist do her hair, but Oribe is her go-to line in a pinch. Her makeup mostly comes from her sold-out eponymous line with Estee Lauder, and she switches between Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation ($55) and La Mer Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation ($110). A fascinating water closet indeed.

Drew Barrymore, Cat Lady?

Over the holidays Drew Barrymore was busy building her #GirlGang. The actress visited an animal shelter with her two daughters, with the intention of adopting one kitten. The family of three returned home with three kittens, which made the actress question: Is she a #CrazyCatLady or is this a classic #ChristmasMiracle? Meet Lucky, Peach and Fern.
