The Stars of “Star!” Kontrol TV Gets The Deets on Fox’s New Series w/ Lee Daniels & Queen Latifah!

The anticipation for Fox’s newest series Star has reached a fever pitch!

Tonight the series makes a special debut right after Empire’s Winter Finale. We know for a fact The Lyons and their infighting is going to be spectacular, but we are even more amazed as we get to meet a series of new characters all centered around three beautiful young women as they try to break into the music industry.

The cast of this series is truly star studded with major players like Benjamin Bratt, Queen Latifah, Naomi Campbell, and Lenny Kravitz. Thankfully Kontrol TV was able to get the details on the new series when Kontrol Magazine’s very own editor-in-chief, Julian Lark, sat down with Lee Daniels and Queen Latifah for some amazing interviews. Check them out below!

“Music is the core…” We definitely agree with Lee’s statement. The music he has on both of his series is nothing short of amazing. We have seen what he can do with the artists on Empire, but there is something about female vocals that remains classic and timeless. That’s what we are looking forward to with the music from Star.

We are definitely hoping Queen Latifah will get to perform with the Star girls. As Julian mentioned, her Dana Owens album was phenomenal and the Queen herself is hip-hop royalty. As Carlotta, it seems like we can expect her to be a mother bear for the girls–and you know how dangerous and protective they can be!

Lee Daniels is really making magic with his work and this new series is yet another event in what will be a legacy of greatness. You all just be sure to catch Star tonight at 9:00 PM EST, right at Empire’s Winter Finale. You can also catch episode recaps here at Kontrolmag.com! Happy viewing!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
