SINGERSROOM ROUNDS: Naturi Naughton Goes Highland, Angie Stone’s Arrest Mix Up, Omarion Talks Jodeci Backlash

Naturi Naughton continues to shine in Hollywood since leaving the now defunct platinum-selling group 3LW. After tackling films like Notorious, Fame and Lottery Ticket, the R&B songstress is now gearing up for her new film “Highland Park.” Starring alongside Parker Posey, Danny Glover, Billy Burke, Kimberly Elise, and Rockmond Dunbar, the movie is about a group of high school faculty members in Detroit striving to improve the condition of their once beautiful neighborhood. “Highland Park” focuses especially on the depiction on America’s realities, from budget cuts to other issues in a comedic fashion.

After getting busted for speeding and driving with a suspended license on Sunday (Mar. 27), Angie Stone has come forward via her publicist to call the arrest a mix up. As previously reported, Stone was booked on two counts of speeding and driving on a suspended license in Georgia, but her rep tells TMZ that Stone never received official notification of the penalty for a previous traffic incident, so the ticket went unpaid – prompting authorities to issue the warrant and suspending her license. Stone paid the outstanding fine.

Omarion has come to the defense of his sexually-explicit remake of Jodeci’s classic hit “Come & Talk To Me.” The R&B crooner has been catching a lot of flack, especially after he released the music video which features video vixen Rosa Acosta. “I’ve been getting mixed reviews. A lot of people from the old school, that grew up listening to Jodeci, and I’m not meaning in my age bracket, I mean part of Jodeci’s time, they don’t really like it,” Omarion tells Vibe. “But a lot of the young people appreciate it. But I say hey, I was a big fan of Jodeci and I thought it was really interesting as an entertainer that no one has touched any of their records and/or their legacy.”
