Meagan Good — Why Is She Not On The Jay Leno Show?
Tuesday May 13, 2008 — By Wow Jones
In an interview by Jamie Foster Brown in her Sister 2 Sister Magazine (June 2008 issue), Actress Meagan Good briefly chats about the difficulty navigating through the Hollywood Hype Machine. In the excerpt included below,
Actress Meagan Good and Sister 2 Sister Founder/Publisher/Interviewer Jamie Foster Brown briefly allude to: who gets attention and promotion versus who doesn’t get attention and promotion in mainstream media. They also briefly discussed Meagan Good’s brush with the paparazzi earlier recently (where the flash from a photographer’s camera revealed her ripe breasts in a see-through sweater). It’s funny, when I read that portion of the story, all I could do was chuckle. Meagan Good tries to be coy and innocent, but I still believe she knew EXACTLY what she was doing leaving her home without a bra and wearing a see-thru sweater. They bring up an interesting question, though.
Jamie Foster Brown — It’s interesting, because you don’t see Black artists in those publications as much. You may see one or two in OK or US, but it’s interesting that they’re interested in taking pictures of you. Probably because of your inner beauty as well as your outer beauty.
Meagan Good — Thank you.
Jamie Foster Brown — Do you all ever wonder why you are not on Jay Leno’s Show? Does that bother you all?
Meagan Good — I’ve done “Conan O’ Brien” I’ve done “Jimmy Kimmel”, I’ve done a couple of those. I do believe I will do “Jay Leno,” but yeah, it does bother me that we’re not high in the rankings to be picked to do on those shows. Sometimes you see people on the show and you’re like who? What was it that they did? And you really just don’t know who it is. And they’ll put someone like them on the show before they put on Sanaa Lathan or Joy Bryant. It doesn’t baffle me, although it should, but the way the industry is, it doesn’t baffle me at all.
The interview also had Meagan Good mention that she’s been in the business for a loooooooooooong time. 22 years by her estimate. For those who don’t remember or know, she cameoed in the cult-classic comedy FRIDAY in 1995. The movie starred ICE CUBE and CHRIS TUCKER. Below are a few photos where you can find Meagan Good. She’s telling Chris Tucker “Smokey” to hurry up when skips to the front of the ice cream truck line of kids to talk to neighborhood degenerate BIG WORM.
