T-Boz Dishes On Beyonce & Other Ish+"The Game" Set To Become A Drama?
Apr 06 | by Natasha
T-Boz did an interview over at Blackvoices recently. And she has some things to say about Beyonce and why girl groups don't last, Brian McKnight's b*tchassness, and a possible TLC movie:
When you hear stories about what's going on with Destiny's Child and Kelly Rowland having to fire Matthew Knowles to finally get attention, what are your thoughts? They get mad when I say this, but I don't give a damn. It was all about Beyonce anyway. She was my favorite, too, but come on. Her parents are over everything. Who do you think they were going for? It's always Beyonce. It was supposed to be exactly the way it is now, Bey is on top. I love Beyonce, and I am a fan of hers. She was my favorite in the group even before they were Destiny's Child and they were the Baby Dolls. She was so cute and pretty. I like all of them, and I wish Kelly the best. When you're in a girl group, you have differences, and you have to learn how to respectfully agree to disagree. There are a lot of things that happen behind the scenes that people don't know about. Some girl groups have girls trying to steal other girls' boyfriends and that's the ultimate no-no. You have situations like the Kelly thing and Beyonce's parents. You can say that I'm out for everybody, but if Lisa was to bring somebody in that's her boyfriend, then I'm gonna feel like you got Lisa's back more than mine, and that's gonna be a no-no. I just think that brings a conflict of interest in the beginning. That would have been a hard group for me to be in, because I would have been like your mommy and daddy are running things and they're gonna have you at heart the most. That's just how I feel. What was your interaction with Brian McKnight like? Brian is a spoiled little brat for real. I like him though, but he's an a--hole. He has so much talent and he was very nice to me, but he was really trippin'. I asked him if he was gonna talk, and he said that he would talk a little bit. But when we're off set and in the hallway, it's okay to say hi. What actress would you like to play you in the [possible TLC] film? It would have to be a girl who has a lot of cool personality like a prissy tomboy. She has to look good with blond hair, because she must swag out the blond. I love Kyla Pratt. She has a lot of personality and a lot of spunk. I think Meagan Good can do it, too. I like both of them. In 'ATL,' Lauren London played me and she did a great job. 'ATL' was about Dallas Austin and my experience growing up in the skating rink. The only difference was that we [were not in a relationship]. That was part of the movie. I executive produced it, and it was a part of my life. That was really my story.Um, what? Am i the only one who didn't know ATL was based on T-Boz's life and New New was supposed to be her?
And word has it "The Game" is turning into an hour long dramedy on CW. The YBF was the first to break the news that "The Game" was set to be canceled asap, and now its creator Mara Brock Akil is trying to keep it alive with a change-up:
With the CW expected to complete its exit from the half-hour comedy genre at the end of this season, the creator/executive producer of one of the network's two remaining comedies, "The Game," is mulling turning it into an hourlong series. Mara Brock Akil is expected to pitch the idea to the CW brass this week.Will this work? *fingers crossed*
