Mary J. Blige has revealed she wanted to become the Queen of Pop and marry Michael Jackson.
She admitted: “As a kid, I was in love with Michael Jackson, and I just knew I was going to marry him someday.”
Mary nearly didn’t become a singer as she was so good at doing people’s hair and thought she would end up doing that full time.
She told Emag: “Growing up, I was the preferred hairstylist for all of my friends.”
The star also talked about her backstage rituals and how she always has a soothing drink to help loosen and warm up her vocal cords before giving a concert.
She said: “I still get nervous about singing. I drink tea with honey and lemon before every concert. And I need to have scented candles in all of my hotel rooms.”
