‘Power’ Star Naturi Naughton Wants Show to Stop Being Compared to ‘Empire’
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
“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.”
