Dirty 30 and Flirty: 11 Head-Turning Naturi Naughton Moments

July 9, 2014  |  

Thirty is that age. Especially for women (not all but some) , it’s just that age where everything is a full circle moment and your womanhood is solidified. There’s a brand new air of liberation and contentment. This brings us to Naturi Naughton who recently turned 30. We know the singer/actress from her early days with girl group 3lw. After she broke ties with the group, many thought Naughton’s career was toast. But that was a lie, Naughton continues to reemerge stronger and more resilient. She talked about the transition from 3lw to acting:

I was working for about three years on the show Hairspray on Broadway, which helped me transition into acting because it’s musical theater, where I’m singing and dancing and acting and learning how to think on my feet. When I booked Hairspray I really didn’t have a support system other than my family and friends. So after 3LW, doing Hairspray really launched me into a position in New York where I was getting recognized and then got an agent. And then I booked Notorious as well, while I was doing the show.

I just feel really blessed because it’s not easy to do what I’ve done. There’s a lot of people who would love to be able to have a balance of both. But it wasn’t easy. For my first role, I had to audition five times. I’ve gotten a lot of no’s and rejections. But I just had to keep working hard. I took classes, I worked on my craft and continued to work with an acting coach and just didn’t give up on myself.
