Letoya Luckett’s wicked turn as Felicia Price on Single Ladies is a win with fans. Known mostly for her tenure with Destiny’s Child, the Texas native has successfully avoided a career flop with her own music and flourishing acting career.
“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,” says Letoya of her signature look. “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.”
As for whether her lighter tresses are helping in the love department, the singer/actress says it’s been “way too long” since she’s had sex, partially because she isn’t a fan of dating.
“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.”
Although she wasn’t present for old friend Beyonce’s wedding, Luckett is hopeful about Kelly Rowland’s upcoming nuptials. Watch the entire interview above.
