Meagan Good Says Church Folk Expect Her To Walk Around In Turtlenecks Because She’s A Minister’s Wife
32-year-old actress Meagan Good’s clothing selections has been a hot topic of conversation ever since she showed up to this year’s BET Awards show rocking a rather revealing gown with a navel-plunging neckline. While the alluring ensemble probably wouldn’t have been such a big deal if it were worn by another celebrity, the newly married Think Like A Man actress caught a lot of heat from the Christian community. During a recent interview with VLAD TV, Meagan expressed that she believes people have unrealistic expectations about the kind of clothing she should wear as a minister’s wife.
“Some people feel like I should wear a turtleneck or something but that’s not who I am. If that’s not what God tells me to do then I’m not going to do that to make other people comfortable.”
She went on to say that she is the voice of young women who are often “misjudged” because of their attire.
“I’m comfortable with me, I love me. And I feel like I speak to girls and women that are like me…That are often misjudged and often looked down or talked about because people don’t get their heart or their spirit based off something as small as what they might choose to wear that day.”
“…I try to be love and light to them, I try to do what I can to build God’s kingdom and reach people that I immediately connect with because we are similar,” she continued.
Meagan also revealed that she was shocked by people’s reactions to her 2013 BET Awards dress and that they compared it to the infamous Versace dress worn by J.Lo to the Grammys in 2000.
“I was shocked that people cared so much. I guess it’s because I’m married to a minister.”
“I see it. I get it. I definitely didn’t think that when I got it because hers was super plunging like right down to the… Ummm, I thought she looked beautiful. I get the comparison, I just don’t think it was quite as extreme.”
