Naturi Naughton Went to College For Political Science Before Dropping Out Junior Year, Says She Should Have Represented Herself As Tasha


Naturi Naughton was the latest guest on The Crew Has It with Michael Rainey Jr. and Gianni Paolo. During the episode Naughton was asked when she started acting etc.

 I started singing music first, always like a musician, singer, or artist, when I was five. I started singing in my church. Everybody was like, you know, you should definitely do music, but I was obsessed with Whitney Houston,” said Naturi Naughton.

“So I was like I want to be a singer, actress like bodyguard inspired me so much for me. I was always looking at my career like I could do it all. I never want to be one-dimensional; I want to be a triple threat.

So, Thank God I am, and I guess around five, and then I started doing, you know, talent shows. I start singing the national anthem at the New Jersey Nets game. Somebody heard me, and then they asked me to try out for a girl group called, and the girl group was at the time called Little Women, and then I got a record deal for 3LW with Sony Epic.”

At the age of 2022, Naturi landed a musical called Hairspray for three years, which was a gateway for her to pursue acting.

“That’s where I segued into acting because I always tell people that theater is the best place to learn how to do it all when you do theater, and there’s a live audience, and they’re not going to lie to you. If this s*** is not funny, it isn’t funny,” said Naughton.

“If it’s not good, you don’t get the reaction. If it’s good, you get to a live audience; it is a good telling you how to know if your art is good, and hairspray was my first big gig. I left college. I’m a college dropout.

I left school not to drop out; I went like a junior. I was like a straight student top of my class. I was going to be a lawyer. I went to school for political science. Maybe I should have represented myself as Tasha because Davis MacLean is so shady.”

She added, “That maybe I would have been okay if you know if I had myself. Anyway, I thought about being a lawyer in real life.”
