The Artist Formerly Known as Amanda Diva Preps One-woman Show & needs your help!
Towards the end of last year, the tv personality/hip hop artist gave up the name “Diva” and is currently going by Amanda Seales. With change in name, comes change in focus in projects. Known as a talking head on some of your favorite VH1 specials, and infamously for taking over the Floetry tour after Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart went their separate ways mid-tour. She is also a talented painter. You can check out her work here
Next up on the renaissance woman’s agenda is a one-woman show.
In her words:
I got tired of watching women fighting on tv, skilled actresses overlooked for fame whores, and young girls looking up to talentless celebs so I wrote a one-woman show, “Death of the Diva“. My challenge of pop culture’s portrayal of women, I use humor and music, composed by Ray Angry (The Roots, D’angelo, Joss Stone) to speak through a multiple of different characters.
