“Fame can kill you… The industry got the best of Whitney,” Brandy reveals. “Fame got the best of her and I won’t let it get the best of me.”
While Beyonce owned Saturday night with her ‘Lemonade‘ premiere on HBO Brandy cried, laughed, and shared her career journey on Centric’s ‘BEING‘ series.
“I just got off track on how to win like the moment I started looking at Beyonce, Beyonce in particular. My daughter loves Beyonce, I love Beyonce. But, you can’t look at Beyonce…and I’m not even that sexy. So, don’t do it. It’s not me. I had to learn to not try to conform and how to fit in there. That’s not how I won before.
Okay, the game’s changed but the way dreams come true hasn’t changed. and the way dreams come true is you believe in ’em and you be yourself. That’s it. No matter what game you’re in.”
Brandy relives dumping her mom as her manager (like Beyonce dropped her father), the fatal 2006 car accident, re-branding afterwards, and shares a peek of what’s to come. Press play below and watch the full episode.
