When Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pippa” Denton were given the job of executive executive Salt-n-cask The biopic, which premiered Lifetime on January 23, apparently had Pippa: Denton’s own daughter, the best actress in mind to play the role of Egyptian Crisis. Given, which probably guarantees its role in practice. But the interesting thing is that the casting directors of Lifetime did not think that Egypt was right for this part. If anything, Pepa’s well-meaning maternity advice actually ruined the chances of a crisis.
“She was like, I’ll play you, I’ll play you.” “So, I’m giving him all these inner points, one by one: ‘I talk like this. When I first heard my song, I did it like this.’ So I’m teaching him this, and then She auditioned. She had to audition like everyone else. She wasn’t taking him to the door yet, saying, “She’ll be one.” And the funny thing was that when she went there to audition, they said to her, ‘No, it’s not like that. You did everything wrong.’ And so was I. ‘How You are going to tell Me Not the same I What? ‘So, that was ridiculous. She came back, and she was like, ‘Mom, I didn’t get it. You told me everything was wrong. ‘ I am , ‘How? He was Me! ”
Leila O’Deam ended up on the Pipa section (and she played GT Townson with Salt and Monk Paul as DJ Spenderla), but both James and Denton’s daughters were given smaller roles – ironically, Salt. N. Pipa as imitation. “There was a moment in our past where salt-and-pepper were imitations,” he said. We went to a place to do a show and the bouncer told us, ‘Salt-N-Pippa is already here.’ There is a whole moment in the movie where you see our manager walking on stage and trying to stop him. Our daughters play fake Salt-N-Pippa, so they get a little bit of cameo in the Lifetime movie, ”Salt revealed.

Pippa – it’s also about friendship. We were friends before we became a group. So, it’s a man and a woman in music, in ups and downs, up and down. , Not just gender, but World, And how we got into it and how we survived, and we didn’t become a tragic story. “We are still here.

Were “When only one part of us was overpowered, as you will see in the movie, of course, it was just the beginning. At that time we had our producers, who brought us all together, at that time the salt boyfriend, Herbie , Which had a vision of bringing salt-n-papa, “says Pipa. “I remember he was making a special costume with us, because he loved the whole prince and the idea of Wendy and Lisa.”

He thought he was a prince And Michael Jackson! “But we had to figure it out,” says the salt of the group’s style evolution, when he, Pippa, and Spenderla abandoned the image of revolution to start their fashion revolution – with the signature disproportionate chapter. There were haircuts, door-knitting earrings, and those colored leather jackets (on which the barrel’s jokes are more famous than the salty-barrel itself). “There was really a lot going on in the streets at the time, personally what we were feeling at the time. Hairstyles and make-up, we were just physically doing things as we walked. Then they became famous moments, “says Salt.
The aforementioned iconic “push it” jackets – with “S” on one sleeve and “P” on the other, as seen in this progress single MTV hit video – conceived by another James and Denton expert. What was – Sear’s co-workers, Christopher Martin, aka ‘Kid’ from Play. “She designed the jacket, and [Harlem-based outfitter] Dipper Dan, who is currently contracting with Gucci, actually made the jacket, put it together, “Salt explains.” It was like the Louis and Gucci stuff we wore in the 80’s. ۔ So, it all came together to make this Salt-N-Pippa jacket famous. “
