Exclusive: Christina Milian’s Post-DWTS Plans

Published

It’s only been a few days since Christina Milian was shockingly eliminated from Dancing With The Stars, but the pint-sized beauty is already on to the next.

Now that she has a little more time on her hands, Milian is switching back to her first love…music! The YMCMB singer is hard at work on her upcoming album and told HipHollywood, “It has a great combination of pop and R&B, but I have live instruments. I definitely settled more on the edgy R&B side so far.”

Christina also talked about working with YMCMB head honcho, Lil Wayne. “He’s such an innovator and he really does care about his artist…he has really great things to say and really great critiques.” The “Dip It Low” singer also says she’s hoping to get the full Young Money roster, including Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga, to feature on her album.

Check out our full interview with Ms. Milian below.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
