Naturi Naughton is constantly proving the importance of being a part of the conversation, both on-screen and off.
Starring in ABC’s newest series Queens, Naughton began her career as a member of the R&B pop group 3LW when she was fifteen years old. Now starring as Jill in Queens, she represents a strong woman who is in a constant struggle with the representation of her sexuality within the community. The show follows Brianna, Jill, Valeria, and Naomi, who once appeared as the “Nasty B*tches” in the 1990s. Together, the four of them not only turned the world of hip-hop upside down but also achieved legendary status through their music.
The four women are now in their forties, unworldly and largely estranged. By reuniting the four, there is now a chance to return to old fame and vigor. But will the former megastars, also known as Professor Sex, Butter Pecan, Da Thrill, and Xplicit Lyrics, manage to achieve this ambitious goal? We find out in the action-packed, exciting representation of pop culture and modern times. Naturi provides a beautiful and authentic performance that will have all audiences on the edge of their seats. We had the chance to sit down with her to talk all about the show and her character!
