“Power” had a successful first season and has managed to develop a loyal following despite STARZ being its cable network home, but with the massive success of “Empire” and its first season, plenty of folks have been drawing comparisons.

Actress Naturi Naughton thinks the comparisons don’t make sense, and she wants it to stop.

Naturi tells Cocoa Fab:

“I don’t understand the comparisons. We’re in two different worlds. I don’t even want to put us in the same box. I don’t see how it’s the same. We’re on a cable network and we can do so much more. We’re bilingual, we can be a lot more gritty and we shoot in New York City.”

    I don’t understand why people compare them either. They are very different. And I enjoy both.

    No one with sense compares them though. They are way too different.

    Didn’t her boss 50 start the comparisons though? Yeah she should check him first.

    Power has a better storyline because it’s more gritty but Empire is fun to watch.

    She needs to talk to double quarters. He’s the one that started all that talk…with his jealous behind.
