OnlyOnAOL: This was a 'fantasy come true' for Christina Milian
By: Donna Freydkin
She's one of the characters who belts out "The Time Warp" in the 1975 "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and its reimagining, airing on Fox on Thursday.
Yes, we're talking about freaky maid Magenta, played in this case by Christina Milian. For her, "it was a fantasy come true," says Milian. "I never imagined having the opportunity to do so. It became this perfect fantasy."
Why, you might ask? "I never thought anyone would think of me to play that role," she says.
The remake again centers around two innocents, Brad and Janet (Victoria Justice and Ryan McCartan) who enter the surreal lair of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Laverne Cox). Magenta has some of the most notable musical moments in the entire show. Plus, her clothes.
"Putting it on a cool maid's outfit -- it was fantastic. It was like Halloween every day. Hour and a half makeup and hair. She's got a sexiness about her," says Milian.
Her daughter Violet was totally into it as well. "She loved it. She came to set and memorized full scenes," says Milian. "It was pretty cool for her to see."
So we have to know, of the entire cast, who can throw down the hardest? "Hmmmmmm, me. And the second one was Ryan McCartan. He was my turn-up partner," says Milian.
And yes, they're all close. So much so that they plan to hang out in New York.
"We should try and get together to watch it," Milian says to Justice.
