Maia Campbell Readies COMEBACK & Discusses "Make Em Say" Single + Brandy HONORS Whitney Houston With Album Title

Maia Campbell seems to be doing very well these days and even has a few new projects coming up. Watch the former actress, who has battled drug addiction and bipolar disease, talk about her "Make Em Say" single and other projects inside.  And find out how Brandy's new album title will honor Whitney Houston....

Maia Campbell is back! She recently shot an interview with Get Noticed Media where she dished on her upcoming projects like her "Make Em Say" single (available on iTunes).

She also added that she wants to write a book about her life called ‘Sagittarius’ and work with Tyler Perry on a film based on her mother Bebe Moore Campbell’s book ’72 Hour Hold.’

She added,

‘I know the last time everyone saw me, I was way out there on the other stretch of the road. I got myself together, I’ve been sober for two years and I’ve been stable and very [aware] of how this industry works. I’ve been in this industry since I was a little girl so I’m a professional. I am very able to jump back into these waters and swim deep and get it in. So let’s get it poppin.’

Watch the interview here:

 

Also in music....

Brandy has announced the title of her sixth studio album, Two Eleven, (due in June). And Two Eleven represents not only Brandy's birthday, but the day her idol Whitney Houston died.  

Although Brandy may honor Whitney with her album title, she's still not ready to sing any Whitney songs.

She told the L.A. audience during a performance this weekend at The Factory:

"I heard there was a rumor that I was doing a Whitney Houston tribute tonight -- unfortunately that's not true, because I would be an emotional wreck right now.  I'm just not ready to sing any of her songs. You guys know what that's like."

About the album's sound, she told Rolling Stone Magazine:

"I haven't done R&B in a very long time. This album is rooted in R&B. The sound is different, it's about love. It's mature, it's gritty, it's edgy."

Fab!  Will you be buying it?

Someone held the auto tune

Someone held the auto tune button while she talked.....lmfao. It's too early to do something like this b/c the feedback might send her into relapse. No points for that. HOPE you stick to writing books ;-/

ok 4 things! NUMBER ONE who

ok 4 things! NUMBER ONE who knew MAIA was such a hood ass bitch!!!!??? this is really throwing me for a loop lmao NUMBER TWO my gurl maia really needs to work on her interviewing skills cuz this ghetto persona she throwing out there doesnt go with her look when i was growing up and watchin her she always played the boogie girl and i always used to say she is soooo pretty she was up there with all the other talented chocolate girls on tv sitcoms at that time TATYANA ALI, KEYSHIA KNIGHT P., SHAR JACKSON, BRANDY and REAGAN GOMEZ. NUMBER THREE i really hope and pray she stays on this path to righteousness becasue i know alot of drug addicts that get sober for years and then relapse but nonetheless SHE looks great and beautiful and healthy and hope she continues on this positive path i miss her in this business she was a amazing actress :))) god bless :))

Girl please, all them people

Girl please, all them people you named is ghetto. Just about all them Celebs do drugs, I've seen it with my own eyes, i live in Studio City CA. Maia, is just the only one who's dirt was uncovered because she was hanging with the hood n**gaz that don't care while the others are hanging around the hood n**gaz that pretend to be CEO's so they can sell to the A list celebs. That stupid judgmental comment you just made about someone struggling with the passing of her Mother is so stupid, you obviously are very miserable. For the simple fact that Maia is so naturally beautiful, she will be on top in no time. All she gotta do is drop about 15 pounds and Hollywood gone be right back on her. All the hating is super wack, especially on a person that's doing her best to stay positive.

Im so happy to see this video

Im so happy to see this video of Maia Campbell. Ive always thought she was a very beautiful and talented actress. And I also loved and followed her mother works she was a very talented author. Her struggle and the book 72 hour hold hit close to home for myself as bipolar is in my family. I have stayed praying for Maia. God is good. I wish Maia all the best and I will support all her upcoming projects.

Congratulations Maia!!! I'm so happy to see and hear that she's well. I loved her mother's books and I can only imagine the pain her mother went through with her daughter being ill and the pain Maia's gone through over the years. Keep up the good work Sistah!

Maia looks great!! Brandy titled the album for her birthday which also happens to be the day that Whitney Houston who is her idol, died. I think that was perfect choice because she said Whitney gave her a dream. I have all the Brandy albums and I will be buying this one.
