MADONNA dreamed of working in a candy store.

The Celebration singer, who now follows a strict diet and exercise regime, was so "obsessed" with sweet treats as a teenager she wanted to get a job selling them.

Madonna, 51, revealed: "My dream was always to work in a candy store. It was because of my obsession with candy. I'm not obsessed anymore, now that my teeth are all rotten!

"I did go to a university for a year and there was a candy shop that I used to go to all the time, an old-fashioned one where all the candy was in these big glass jars."

However, Madonna's ambitions changed when she moved to New York in the 1970s and decided she wanted to be a pop star, no matter what it took.

She said: "When I moved to the Big Apple, that was when I knew that that's what I was going to do - be a singer and a songwriter and an entertainer.

"I didn't care if I had to starve and live in a room with five guys, and wash in a sink; that's what I was going to do. And I lived a pretty dismal life but I didn't care." - Bang
