R&B star MARY J. BLIGE isn't ready to pen her autobiography as she celebrates 20 years in the music business - insisting she's too young to tell her life story.
The Real Love hitmaker, 38, overcame a tough childhood to enjoy a highly-successful career and has earned 10 Grammys during her time in the spotlight.
Her rumoured romances with rappers Ghostface Killah and Nas and failed relationship with Jodeci frontman Cedric 'K-Ci' Hailey played out in the media until she married record executive Kendu Isaacs in 2003 - whom she credits with helping overcome her addictions to drugs and alcohol.
But despite living an eventful life, the soulful singer is convinced it will be years before she'll put her life in print.
She tells the New York Daily News, "I'm still not ready. The older I get the more I have to talk about. It's gonna be a great book. They should wait until I'm really ready."
