Beth Ditto is making back-up plans for when her music career flounders - she is plotting to land a place at beauty school.
The Gossip singer was thrust into the limelight when the band released their album Standing in the Way of Control in 2006.
But she is adamant her star will fade eventually - and is making contingency plans in case her showbusiness work ever dries up.
She says, "This craziness, this attention, is not normal, and I never expected it to last. You just gotta know that if it doesn't last, it's not going to kill you. It changes your life but it doesn't change who you are.
"Like, I always know at the back of my mind I need to save money in case anything happens. Because in the future I'm going to have to go to beauty school one day. I'm going to have to go back home and live normal."
