Family Affair singer Mary J. Blige has admitted that she wanted to marry Michael Jackson when she was younger.

The 42-year-old star revealed that she was a huge fan of the late singer and had a huge crush on him when she was growing up.

Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, Blige said: ''As a kid, I was in love with Michael Jackson, and I just knew I was going to marry him someday.''

Mary explained that she almost didn't become a musician as she thought she would become a hairdresser, adding: "Growing up, I was the preferred hairstylist for all of my friends."

Blige further explained that she still gets nervous before she goes on stage, saying: ''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.''
