They took Swizz’ two older boys Prince Nasir and Kaseem Jr. to see the movie Spiderman: Turn off the Dark on Broadway. I’m glad to see that everything is working out for the family. I like Alicia and Swizz as a couple.

New Interview: Meagan Good Talks Keyshia Cole, Wearing The Same Clothes Twice, Desire To Play Whitney Houston & More

While at the Playboy Superbowl in Dallas this past weekend, Actress/Singer Meagan Good sat down with Vibe magazine. During her interview, Good talked about her new group, helping Keyshia Cole get her start in this business, wearing the same clothes  more than once, playing Whitney Houston and much more. Read the interview below.

A lot of people were surprised to hear that you’re in a girl group now. I know your sister’s in it as well. How did that come about?

When me and my sisters were kids, I was about 14 or 16, we had been in a singing group together for a long time and I went away to do Eve’s Bayou and she decided to pursue the music route. So my acting career did what it did and then she joined the group Isyss and she did what she did. And then once the group fell apart, she went to another group for a while. I went into a group with the two twins that were in ATL, we were signed with Lil’ Kim’s label.

Oh damn, so this girl group game is far from new to you. What was the name of that last group?

So embarrassing. I was 19. It was 10 years ago. It was called Phyne. It was back in the day when it was kind of okay to have names like that. Our producer was Damon Elliott who did “Love” on Keyshia Cole’s first album. That’s kind of a crazy story because I met Keyshia when she first came from Oakland and was just trying to figure out how to get started with her singing career and I was doing Biker Boyz at the time and I had just dropped out of the group and Damon was very upset with me and I had met Keyshia and I said, “Look this girl’s amazing, you need to work with her, see if you can help her out.” And they got together and did “Love” and five other songs on her first [album]. That’s actually how Keyshia Cole started doing her thing.

Ah, so you had a hand in Keyshia’s beginning?

[Yeah] that’s my girl; I love her to death. So besides that, I still had the music bug, but I wanted to be a very serious actor. I still do. I want the Oscar. But the music thing just kept coming up and then by best friend Amy and her girlfriend Sterling started a kind of punk band and I kept coming to their performances and my sister was doing her solo thing and one day [Sterling] and Amy came to me and said what do you think if we do a band? I thought it was a good idea but was like, “What kind of music will we do?” So we sat down and were like, “Alright our favorite type of music is rock n roll, kind of punkish.” And so we decided to do the band and met up with producer Rob Bolt, who’s done a lot with Fergie, Radiohead, Puddle of Mudd –a lot of great rock bands. He helped us develop a sound.
