Tatyana Ali Hits The Breakfast Club, Talks Drake Rumors And Posing For King
We watched Tatyana Ali grow up gracefully before our eyes as Ashley Banks on “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.” After the show ended in 1996, she became a singer and had us lip-syncing to her hit song “Day-Dreaming” with our friends, and as she continued to explore other industries the child star became a producer, Harvard graduate, and campaigned for President Obama’s candidacy. Yesterday, Miss Ali hung out with Power 105’s Breakfast Club and spoke about her new movie November Rule, which stars Lala Anthony, Jay Ellis and Mo McCray, posing for King Magazine and if she got a little nookie from Drake. Here are the highlights from the interview.
Her New Movie, November Rule
“November Rule is about Mo McCray’s character. His character has a rule, by November he always breaks up with whoever he’s with. November is when Thanksgiving starts, then it’s Christmas, the other holidays. So If you break it off before then, it will never get too serious. You never have to introduce people to your family. When I first read the script, I thought “this is such a cool idea, no one ever does this.” Then on the set, I realized everyone is doing this. This is something guys do.”
Posing For King Magazine
“I’ve posed for King Magazine twice. I never put it out there. The first time I did King, it was a different type of magazine. The flavor of it was a bit different than it is now. The pictures were different. You could cover up more. When I posed for them, I was in my twenties and when I’m a grandma I can look back on those pictures. I thought I looked cute and I wanted to celebrate it. The second time I did it, the theme was Hollywood Era. I didn’t even show my stomach.”
I had a panic attack after that [Wendy Williams] interview. When I’m nervous, I laugh. If you look at the interview I am laughing the entire time. I thought she would ask (because of what was happening with the blogs), so I prepared for the question: “Are you dating?” But instead she asked if I smashed him and I never experienced that from Wendy before. [Drake’s] flattering (refereeing to him dropping her name in his song,”Tuscan Leather.”) I thought it was really nice of him.
