Singer turned actress Letoya Luckett is in full promo mode, promoting her new role on Single Ladies. The former Destiny’s Child singer is slowly but surely building her Hollywood resume with gigs like ‘Preacher’s Kid‘ and HBO’s ‘Treme‘, while giving her singing career a semi-second seat (she plans to release her new album, Until Then this year). This week, the 33-year-old Texas beauty chatted with Wendy Williams about playing Felicia Price, what’s stopping her from having a man (she admits that her sex life is non existent these days) and more. Peep a few excerpts below.
You know what, my team had an intervention with me. Because I was so comfortable in my swoop bang. They called me ‘Swoop Bang Gang’…for the ladies out there. I’ve been wearing this since I was a kid. I knew it was time, I just didn’t know which direction to go in. I didn’t know if I wanted to cut it, I didn’t know if I wanted to color it a different color. I didn’t know they were going to go for both so…yea.
You what’s crazy, they didn’t see it until I had to start doing promo for the show. Because I didn’t have it during the show, so then they were looking and were like hmmm…for next season, we like. So I don’t know, I don’t know about the color, it’s not for sure.
Ok, here’s the deal Wendy. You know what, I’m going to let you guys in on something. I don’t really like to date. I’m very to myself. I can be very picky but at the same time I can be very patient with waiting on God and who ever he has for me. I will wait on that. I stay doing things in my career and try to grow in my career. I think a lot of times as women we feel pressure from our parents, our friends, we see our friends get married. I’m in my 30s.
Well, that was personal. It’s been a while…way too long.
I would love to. But you know that’s the thing. I see these relationships and you see relationships falling apart. I’m not scared (to fall in love)….I like tall but, I just want a good man. That’s respects me, appreciates me, God fearing, understands what I do. Handsome. He can be tall. You don’t have to have m’s, m’s, m’s in the bank, but at the same time…
I was not at her wedding.
You know what, I don’t know. I called her and congratulated her, and I’m so happy for her.
It’s called “Until Then” and it will be released sometime this year.
