Macy Gray won't be taking her mum's career advice again after she urged her to appear on U.S. TV show "Dancing with the Stars" - even though the "I Try" singer was a terrible dancer. Gray was humiliated and devastated when she became the first female celebrity to be kicked off the 2009 season of the hit TV contest, and she insists she warned everyone she had no rhythm.
She tells Grazia magazine, "My mother talked me into going on 'Dancing with Stars'. It was awful. She said, 'You should try new things.' She gave the whole speech and I fell for it. And the money's nice. So I thought f**k it. I'm gonna do it."
"I told everybody I'm a terrible dancer but nobody believed me. Until I was kicked out first! Oh God, I proved it."
