Successful and talented Hollywood actress Meagan Good is covering the “Valentine’s” issue of Vibe Vixen and the 30-year-old Los Angeles native opens up about love, her career, being a spiritual person, secret to her maintaining a younger look. Good also talked about her female band H.E.L.L.O Girls and playing Whitney Houston’s in a biopic about her life. Below are some excerpts:
Now, last year word was buzzing about the girl group H.E.L.L.O Girls. Fast forward and tell me how the music coming along now.
I always said that I didn’t want to sing because I wanted to be considered a very serious actress, not an entertainer, but singing is a passion of mine, rapping is a passion of mine, and in the way that we decided to do it, it’s very fun. We’re not taking ourselves too seriously, and our vibe is kind of like Beastie Boys mixed with Gwen Stefani. We kind of just do what we want to do; that’s what I love about it. The music is fun, and I think that the audience that we’re trying to reach will definitely be receptive to it. It’s not negative; it’s not saying ‘Boy, you want me’ and all this other crazy stuff. It’s about girls having fun and respecting themselves and being fly, doing their thing.
Your character on Showtime’s Californication is a singer as well. Did you identify with this role more because of that?
Well, she’s a very different girl in a different place than I am at. This young woman, Kali, she basically wants to pursue her dreams and her goals, but she’s had a rough time and now she’s determined to make it. I didn’t focus so much on the singing as much as I focused on trying to bring the truth of who this character is and not trying to judge her.
How was it starring in eight episodes alongside David Duchovny?
Awesome. Our birthdays are actually two days apart, and we get along famously. I mean, just good chemistry. He’s a really good guy, really funny and quirky. He just made it very easy and made me very comfortable.
Jumping into a bit of Oscar talk, what role would you want to play in the future to gain Oscar-worthy attention?
I want to do Whitney Houston’s life story. I think that would be an incredible story to do. I talked to Whitney a little bit about it, and she’s open to it, so I want to see what happens with that. Hopefully, in the very, very near future. She has Sparkle coming out, and I’ve heard good things about it already. I heard she looks beautiful, she sounds beautiful, she looks healthy and she’s the Whitney that we know and love. And so I think that would be a great place for her story to end and really just be beginning, if they were to do her life story right now.
