Mary J. Blige's shoe fetish
This article is from 2008.
Mary J. Blige owns over 1,000 pairs of shoes.
The 'Just Fine' singer is so obsessed with designer footwear that she has a whole closet devoted to storing her purchases.
She said: "My biggest fashion weakness is definitely shoes. My favourites are some Chloe wedges. I have around 1,000 pairs."
Mary is planning to channel her love of fashion into her own clothing range, that will focus on demin.
She added to Britain's Elle magazine: "I'd really love to do that. I want to start with a great pair of jeans that fit nicely and are made from a good-quality material. I'm also working on a perfume. I'm always checking out new scents for ideas."
However, the 37-year-old singer has no intention of trying to compete in the fashion stakes with her younger pop rivals.
She said: "I'm learning about fashion, but a lot of people do like my style. I don't have to compete though - I don't even want to compete. I'm not trying to outdo Rihanna or Beyonce."
