"ATL" actress Lauren London is being featured in the latest issue of Complex Magazine. The actress, who can presently be seen on the new version of Beverly Hills 90210, is doing a bit of promotion for her latest film "Next Day Air". Sitting down for a quick one-on-one, the actress spoke about the usual: internet rumors, her taste in men, and what plans she has for the future.
We hear your idol is Barbra Streisand. Can't say we saw that coming.
Lauren London: You think because I'm some little black girl, I can't love Barbra? [Laughs.] I'm the little half-black, half-Jewish girl who was odd and awkward. I try to be myself. Barbra didn't look like Vivian Leigh or Lucille Ball: She was Barbra Streisand. She made her own mark.
But you're probably the only Streisand fan to appear on a Clipse mixtape.
Lauren London: I've been knowing Pharrell and them since I was really, really young. They're like family to me. Pusha is definitely my brother.
It seems you've been connected to a number of people in the rap world.
Lauren London: Most of those are rumors! I don't have a lot of friends; most of the friends I have, I've had since high school.
Lauren London: [Laughs.] So…what were you going to say?
I was just going to ask about the kind of guys you're attracted to. Are you attracted to rappers? [Laughs.]
Lauren London: [Laughs.] No.
OK, then how do you like your man to dress?
Lauren London: For some odd reason, I like a man in sweatsuits. Obviously, you want your man to look good in a suit, but I like when men look comfortable and the swagger just stands out of that.
And what should this man know before approaching you?
Lauren London: Don't be thirsty. Be comfortable in your own skin. Don't mention anything about Hollywood and you'll be OK. I don't want to hear about your jet or your car. Be emotionally stable. I'm interested in a guy who's a lover of God, a lover of music, a lover of poetry, a lover of women-
