5 Famous Musicians Who Now Have Normal Day Jobs

Published

on

While we all have that one musician or band we absolutely adore, it can be hard to relate to their real-life personas. However, not everyone behind the stage lights forgets what it’s like to lead a normal life. These five musicians surprisingly went back to everyday pursuits after leaving their musical careers. Here’s why.

Vanilla Ice Turns Royalties into Real Estate

It’s rare for a music career to rise and fall as fast as 90’s rapper Vanilla Ice’s did. His hit “Ice Ice Baby” topped the charts for four months when it was released; subsequent albums tanked in comparison, however, prompting him to change careers. He invested his earnings into real estate and flipping houses. He eventually starred in his own house renovation show on the DIY Network, unlike this next star who left the limelight completely.

Tragedy Turned Al Green’s Eyes to a Greater Power Than Fame

Al Green was one of the most well-known soul singers of the 70s, with hits like “Let’s Stay Together.” However, fame caused his home life to suffer, and on one fateful afternoon, everything changed. His girlfriend at the time burned him severely before committing suicide in their home. This prompted Green to turn to the church, where he became a minister and opened his own church, the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Memphis. Faith saved this troubled star, much like another on our list.

MC Hammer, was partly responsible for hip-hop’s rise to fame in the 90s with the hit “U Can’t Touch This.” However, similar to his predecessor Al Green, Burrell’s rise to fame caused mayhem in his personal life. After battling bankruptcy, several lawsuits, and run-ins with the law, Burrell decided to change his life for the better. He became an ordained minister and dedicated his later life to the church
