Fantasia Dishes On Going Back To Broadway

Fantasia Dishes On Going Back To Broadway

After five long years of making her first appearance in the hit stage Broadway play “The Color Purple,” Fantasia headed back for the play “After Midnight.”

During a recent interview with Playbill, she dished on what it’s like being back on Broadway.

It’s totally different from The Color Purple — musically — and my role [in After Midnight] is not as grueling as playing Celie. I always said I didn’t think I would ever do Broadway again. They would ask me, and I would say, “I don’t think so.” About a week before [producer] Scott Sanders called me, I was listening to nothing but jazz, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway. I said, “I’m fasting from the radio. I don’t want to hear no new school. I just want to go back and hear classic, old-school jazz music.” My manger called and said, “Scott Sanders called. They said they have another play, and they want you to listen to what they’re saying and see if you want to do it.” So I came to New York and [we] went out to eat, and I said, “Tell me more, Scott.” And, he said, “We’re tapping into the 40s, 50s, 60s, Billie Holiday…” I said, “Stop right there!” He said, “What?” I said, “That’s strange because that’s all that I’ve been listening to.” For me, it’s like I [didn't] have to pray about it or think about it… It’s like I was preparing myself before he asked me… To be a part of something so great.

Iggy Azalea Talks Going From Cleaning Toilets To Being A Boss Chick

Everyone has a story about where they’ve come from and what they’ve been through, but it takes a true Boss Chick to get through it all and turn the negative into a positive.

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea says that at only 23 she’s had a hard knock life. She’s gone from cleaning toilets with her mom to now being a well known female rapper. Leaving home at the tender age of 16, she was on a mission to make her dreams come true after being inspired to be a rapper at age 11 by legendary rapper Tupac.

In an interview back in August with Fuse TV, Iggy talked about her hardworking past, and why she has no regrets.

SPOILER ALERT: Which Olympic Gymnasts Are Going Home With Women’s All-Around Medals….

SPOILER ALERT:  The much anticipated Women’s Gymnastics All-Around Finals took place today. And there’s news out of London about who is taking home medals.  Find out inside…

 

Since NBC didn’t make the good decision of airing Women’s Gymnastics live on tv, folks who caught the live online feed know the results already. 

Gabby wins the GOLD! 

The amazingly talented (and quite adorable) US gymnast Gabby Douglas earned a place in the history books today as she walked away with the gold medal for the women’s individual all-around competition at the 2012 Olympics in London.  

Gabby, aka The Flying Squirrel, took the lead after the very first event (the vault)…and NEVER let it go. She finished with a score of 62.232, about three-tenths ahead of Viktoria Komova of Russia. Aliya Mustafina from Russia won the bronze.  Aly Raisman, also TEAM USA, finished in fourth place. 

Gabby is now the first African-American woman to win gold in the women’s all-around!  And she’s only 16.  This is also her second Gold Medal as TEAM USA won first place in the Team Finals earlier this week.  NBC will air the competition on tv at 8p ET tonight.

Congrats!
