In the latest issue of Hip-Hop Weekly
, Lil' Kim
blasts the Notorious
film and everyone involved with the project. She rants on Faith Evans
, "I'm really disappointed in Faith." On Ms. Viola Wallace
, Biggie's mother, "It's time for Ms. Wallace to be exposed." She claims she was disrespected in the script, "They were disrespecting me terrible in that script but the one that sticks out to me was in a scene allegedly when Ms. Wallace came to see one of Biggie's shows for the first time and I was supposed to be so mad at him about something that I pulled my panties off on stage and mooned the crowd with my p----. What the f---?! Come on, don't you think that would've been in the history archives? They're using Lil Kim to sensationalize their bulls--- lying'-a-- story. That was the last version of the script I saw, which somebody had snuck to me, 'cause people didn't want me to see it."
The most interesting gripe was about Naturi Naughton
, the former member of 3LW
playing Lil' Kim in the movie: "Naturi was the worst out of all of them. Regardless of the fact she looked nothing like me, when I saw the audition tapes, she was the worst and I had no idea why they picked her. It seemed she was the total opposite of what I am. In my opinion a really seasoned actress would have contacted the original person they are portraying to deliver their best performance ever. The only two people who know me are God and myself so the audience is getting jiped in this movie."
I am a big Kim fan, but I couldn't help but laugh when reading that Naturi, "looked nothing like me." Kimberly - you look nothing like you! Who would Kim want to play her -- Lucy Liu
Well, there are bound to be some hurt feelings with this film. Biggie's death is still fresh and all of the people who were close to him and famous are still alive.
Check out an interview with Anthony Mackie, who plays 2Pac in the film
is in theaters Friday, January 16th.
