R&B singer Mary J. Blige, who plays a strip club owner in the new 1980s-themed film "Rock of Ages," has MTV, pop star George Michael and rocker Pat Benatar to thank for helping her discover rock n' roll.

Blige and Michael had actually teamed up 13 years ago to release the duet "As," a Stevie Wonder cover that became one of the biggest hits in Europe in 1999 but did not enjoy the same level of success in the United States. Turns out she was a big fan of him when he was most famous - when he was part of the pop duo Wham!, known for the campy "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go."
