Mary J Blige says she would have become a hairdresser had she not found fame as a singer.

Mary J Blige would have been a hairdresser if she wasn't famous.

The 42-year-old singer admits she would have pursued a career in a hair salon if she hadn't become successful within the music field because she was good at styling hair when she was a youngster.

She said, "If this hadn't happened to me, I liked doing hair a lot when I was young. I was the hairstylist for my friends and my neighbours and I was good at it."

The No More Drama hitmaker is adamant money wasn't her motivation for fame, but she admits a steady flow of cash is vital while living in today’s society.

She explained to The Times newspaper, "Money is important while we're here on Earth, but really my motivation is the fans. When they come up and say, 'You helped me get out of a bad relationship,' or 'You saved my life,' those are the reasons I keep going."

Despite her star status, however, Mary insists she doesn't want her fans to see her as an A-list star.

She said, "I don't want people to look up to me. I want people to relate to me."
