During her interview, Charlamagne asked Lala if she gets upset when people say she can’t act.

She responded:

Not really. You know…you gotta be worried when people aren’t not talking. 



I’m doing it. So, if I couldn’t do it, then why am I doing it? 

If you can do it better, then why you not getting the jobs I’m getting?

That’s how I look at it. And my thing is…I do it. I put my all into it. I didn’t start that way, so it’s been a different journey for me and that doesn’t mean I can’t do it. 

I think people naturally wanna hate because you started differently.



‘You’re not a real actor. You started on radio. You’re this…you’re that.’

Alright, maybe I didn’t come into it like you, but I put the work in and I continue to put the work in.

So, that doesn’t bother me.

Lala Anthony sounds very bothered, but I totally get it.

People give her such a hard time and she’s just trying to live out her acting dreams.

Let Lala live, y’all.
