*EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW & PICS* Letoya Luckett Talks Slim Thug, New Album, & Becoming The New Face Of Luster's

 

Letoya Luckett is the new face of Luster’s Pink Brand Smooth Touch.  And Luster's and VIBE magazine hosted a launch party last night for the event.

 

We've got pics plus an exclusive interview with the groupmate turned fab solo artist when you read on....

 

The event was held at the Helen Mills Theatre in New York, NY and YBF correspondents Sharde and Angela. NYC folks were in attendance, and YBF Chick Letoya was revealed as the new face of with Luster’s. Luster’s ended the evening with giveaways of black hair care products, and had tons of swag bags for everyone.

Letoya chatted it up with YBF about her new album, reuniting with Destiny's Child, her ex Slim Thug's recent controversial comments, and her new job as the face of Luster's.

 

On how she feels being the new face of Luster's Luster’s Pink Brand Smooth Touch...

"I’m so excited! Its funny because I don’t have a professional background in hair but my grandfather was the first person to ever put a relaxer in my hair and he still to this day has his own shop in Houston Texas! And then of course with Destinys child, Tina would do our hair or we had to do each other’s hair and put perm and relaxers in each others hair, so of course this made sense, it jus made sense! Luster came to me and approached me about being a partner in the company and to join forces so I was like absolutely! And they are like a family in itself so its just great! Its crazy because I used to use PINK hair lotion when I was younger! So all of this just made sense!"

 

On how she got into acting and her dream role...

"I’ve had the acting bug for a while, acting has always been an interest of mine but of course my singing career came first so when I moved to LA and got an agent and I was sent on my first audition and landed my first gig then I thought “ya know? maybe Im supposed to do this?!” So I kept going to auditions and I landed the role in killers as the character Amanda. I would love to play Lena Horne! If they ever did a story on her I would love to play that role! Because I am a big fan of hers, so that would be great! "

 

On the new projects she's working on...

"I’m currently working on my new album and I’m taking a new direction with my music (as she looks down at her rings on her hands) so there are a lot of new things are coming up for LeToya so be on the look out!!"

 

On a possible Destiny's Child reunion...

"That’s been a rumor that’s been going around for a while. It’s funny how when you see two of us in the same place everybody goes “Reunion, reunion, reunion!” – But you know, we haven’t talked about it amongst ourselves. If there were to be one I would absolutely love to be apart of it.

Destiny Child’s was a big part of my life and I was thankful to have that experience. And if that ever happened then I would love to be apart of it. It sometimes bugs me because I was reading on something recently -- A friend of mine said something like, “Why people hate on the fact that y’all back friends?” I’m like, “People love drama, people love drama”, and they don’t understand how God works when he wants a relationship healed, when he wants people back together then let that be so. You know, nothing should get in the way of that.

The girls and I are good friends now, we hang out, hit the pool and anybody that got something bad to say about that, I’ma pray for you. When you have any situation where there’s heartbreak and love lost--- On my end there was never any love lost. But when things get kind of get crazy and conflicted or whatever and things come back together, that’s beautiful. People should applaud that and not be like 'I still want them to still be mad.' Like, why you mad son, what’s going on (laughs)?"

 

On her former boo Slim Thug's comments about black women...

"Black is beautiful baby. It is what it is. I’m so proud to be a black woman; I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I mean nothing. I’m blessed to be black. I’m thankful that l I have an amazing family, black women that raised me. Wonderful friends, I’m like an international girl all day long. But I love the black women in my life. My grandmother, my mom… Even on Slim like he has a great mother, he has a great grandmother...women that raised him. His sister... who if it wasn’t for her you wouldn’t even know who Slim Thug was.  Because of how they took care of him... I mean you know, whatever was said, was said. But on my end, Black is Beautiful! "

 

Here's some pics from the event:

 

 

YBF chick Keshia Knight Pulliam showed up.

 

Letoya looked FAB in a Nicole Miller dress paired with Louboutin heels.

What are you doing Keshia???

 

We wonder who's putting that smile on Keshia's face..

I don't get why people are

I don't get why people are getting mad because Letoya (and Beyonce) got/have a hair endorsement because they wear weaves. Talking about "Keisha should get it because she ha natural long hair etc" What does the length have to do with healthy hair anyway? And LeToya, as well as the rest of the original, DC members ALL had natural long hair and just like Keisha she's wearing extentions in her hair. But I've been noticing that people only quetion this type of stuff when it's a black person. Like do you really believe all them white girls in them Revlon, Loreal, and etc are wearing their real hair? Lmao! For one Eva Longoria also wears weave and she does Loreal and the you can tell in the begining of the Loreal commercial with Solo and Bey that the really blond girl with bone straight hair had a weave, but no compalints because she's white. Smh..

Why cant she use it? she doesnt have a bad grade of hair and probably doesnt have to leave it on long enough to do damage. Gosh if she wasnt doing her own thing you guys would call her a "gold digger" just be happy for once.

This young woman is pure

This young woman is pure class, beauty, and positivity. Entirely too good for Slim Thug and too talented for Matthew Knowles to keep down.
Sherm's picture

Too talented huh? well I have

Too talented huh? well I have not heard any of her tracks being smash hits. There is too much competition out there among the ladies. She is an average singer at best just like Rihanna, Keri, Ciiara and a host of other marginally talented.

Sit down! Why people always

Sit down! Why people always bring the most random people into a post? Now slim I understand, he was mentioned, but Mathew? Come on how many years ago was that? People just like being negative...

I wasn't being negative. I was telling the truth. I'm praising her for rising above. Sorry you didn't see that. Oh well, your bad.

I never liked the way that

I never liked the way that Luster's Pink lotion smelled; but in fairness that was many years ago. Maybe the smell has improved since then.

I agree with everyone who

I agree with everyone who said that she doesn't have to say that she doesn't actually use the product that she's endorsing. Good grief. Isn't that common sense? Who is her publicist? Obviously this is her FIRST endorsement.

Ok, why is it a problem with her but nobody said anything when Beyonce was endorsing Hilfiger and Armani perfumes after she clearly stated on Tyra that she doesn't wear perfume, only baby oil? Just asking.

You def came out your ass

You def came out your ass with that once because that girl aint never said that. There was a rumor that she was allergic to perfume and she said she wasn't.
Anonymous's picture

I didn't come out of nowhere

I didn't come out of nowhere with nothing. I didn't say anything about her being allergic. I said that she stated she didn't wear it. Point blank. That came out of her own mouth on Tyra, so take it up with her.

I will never put tht cheap perm in my hair! I used it once in my life and it broke my hair out so bad! I used the pink lotion as well as a child & I luved it! But my hair is trained now so I have to have quality products in my hair. I will stick to my Affirm, Kera Care or silk elements products.

congrats to letoya! but i

congrats to letoya! but i couldn't help but think that keisha should be the one repping a hair care product since her hair is naturally long and healthy. she has managed to keep her hair healthy after years in the business.
Anonymous's picture

LeToya has "naturally long

LeToya has "naturally long and healthy" hair too and they BOTH wear extentions (if that's what you were geting at), so it realy doesn't make a difference. It's just that at this moment Letoya is doing bigger things than Keisha, so there for she's the one with the endorsement.

I hate when we Black women

I hate when we Black women overdue it with "I m a prouuuud black woman" or " I am blessed to be black" Okay.... are others not blessed because they arent Black?lol...---you are who you are and if you are comfortable with it it will show in what you do and how you carry yourself. Statements like that make it seem like you are trying toooo hard to cover up some insecurities- just be you, dont be a Black woman, be a woman who happens to be Black..... bring on the hate!! j/k :-)

I am a proud black woman boo

I am a proud black woman boo & I will say it loud & proud! Get over it! Aint nuthin insecure about her statement! Stop tryin to make it an issue! I can't stand blk folks who do tht! I am blessed to be black bcuz I got tht slavery blood running thru my veins everyday! & thts what white folks envy the most the strength the slaves had to keep it moving & we still have tht, now they r trying to push tht IR dating bullsh** to water down our race & to make us feel inferior to other races...

Oh Please, I dont know about

Oh Please, I dont know about you, but ive never been beat, forced to work, or raped by someone who owned me..slave blood through your veins...come on now- i definitely know what it feels like to be descrimintaed againt, but i wont take away what my ancestors went through by claiming to know what that feels like....gimme a break...
C-Rocka's picture

Ok, let me just state for the

Ok, let me just state for the record. THIS IS FAR FROM HATE! Now, why shouldn't she be proud of the fact that she's a BLACK WOMAN? If a white, asian, hispanic, korean, jamaican, european or haitian says that they are proud to be WHO THEY ARE. What's the problem with that? We already know that she's a woman that "happens to be black", but she's happy to be apart of ALL that being a BLACK WOMAN entails. Just like any other woman of any other race would be happy to be apart of their race for. Also, I don't know what you mean about her "trying too hard to cover up insecurities", but being BLACK/AFRICAN AMERICAN doesn't equal insecurities. From the looks of it, she has NOTHING to be insecure about and that's a BONUS to her BEING BLACK/AFRICAN AMERICAN. Again, this comment is NOT HATE, but YOUR COMMENT IS...
