She told Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "I can go incognito [in Chicago].

"I'm a thinker and sometimes in this business celebrities tend to lose it. A lot of that is down to putting all your eggs in one basket.

"So, if you live in LA, your whole life is there - your personal life and your work. Where is your breathing room? I like to separate the two.

Back on @nbcwillandgrace This time I brought Harlee!! #shadesofblue," she captioned the selfie, which also featured Megan, as well as show stars Debra Messing and Sean Hayes.

"Going home to Chicago keeps me grounded, sane and balanced. LA is a bubble. There is another world outside that, so it's intentional."

The 36-year-old singer has a strong work ethic and thinks it's just as important to understand the business side of her profession as it is to perform.

She said: "All I do is my job. I am a businesswoman.

"In this industry you need to have just as much business sense as talent to be able to exist. Not everyone gets that.

"Fortunately I do. I'm so grateful for that, along with having the talent to be able to do it...

"I don't care if I sing for the pope or the local church, everything is just as precious.

"When I'm having my hair and make-up done for a job, people joke, 'She'as really studying her stuff - who does that?'

"But it's the nature of this business. Your work speaks for you and your next thing comes from your last thing."

And having found success as both a singer and an actress, the 'Dreamgirls' star doesn't take anything for granted.

She said: "It's rare to be able to have a music or acting career, never mind both.

"So, I don't take them lightly.

"Music is involved in everything I do.

"Even if I'm playing a character who has nothing to do with music, all of a sudden the character sings."
