Hip-Hop Minnelli

Veteran singer LIZA MINNELLI is poised to make another comeback with the help of hip-hop pal MARY J BLIGE - as a rapper.

The CABARET star has been lying low since the collapse of her short-lived marriage to DAVID GEST earlier this year (03), but Blige insists her friend still has a lot to offer the music world.

The DANCE FOR ME singer, who describes Minnelli's version of her hit FAMILY AFFAIR as "great" adds, "She can perform any music style. She can even rap.

"We're very good friends. I invited her to my home for Thanksgiving last year. People are always surprised when I tell them that we're friends. 'Aha, do you have white friends?' they ask, like I only hang around with rappers because I'm black."
