Barbra Streisand is so intent on getting away from her professional life when she's at home, she refuses to sing or play music in her house.

The veteran singer admits that music rarely ever gets played in her home - and she refuses to provide any of it live.

She says, "I don't listen to music - not if I can help it.

"I would never even dream of (singing in the shower). I don't even think of that. How silly, standing there singing the shower! Why would I do that? I'm washing up, I'm washing my hair."
