Mariah CareySinger-actress Mariah Carey has said she will quit showbiz some day to lead a simple life.

The pop icon revealed that she once met a famous singer who warned her not to grow too accustomed to the easy life courtesy stardom. She insists one day she'll heed the advice by retiring and taking care of herself, reports fashion.ie.

"A very famous diva once told me, 'Mariah, one day you're not going to want to have all these people around you.' She was taking her own bags off the airport carousel and I really noticed that she was in control of her own life and doing things you don't need to have all these people around you (to do), and it's true," she said.

Carey has refused to name the woman who passed on the advice but she insists she has taken her words to heart: "Who is she? I don't want to say her name because maybe she wouldn't be happy, but she's someone I've admired my whole life."
