UNCENSORED: Naturi Naughton
Born and raised in East Orange, New Jersey, Naturi Naughton grew up with her older brother, mother and father in a loving, happy household with strong family values. Naturi’s talent was recognized when she was 13-years old and asked to try out for the girl group 3LW. As the group shot to stardom, label and management fought to decide on the group’s identity – something they thought Naturi’s voice and image didn’t fit as to what should be the lead. From her controversial portrayal of Lil Kim in Notorious to her current role on Power, Naturi has proven to be a triple threat entertainer – all the while remaining as grounded, family oriented and as true to herself as the girl from East Orange, New Jersey.
