Despite hanging against the Hollywood ropes for a round (or three) while pregnant, L-Boogie maintained consistent work, managing to appear in quite a few silver screen features (I Love You, Beth Cooper, Next Day Air, Good Hair) and TV slots (90210, Entourage). Still, her off-screen journey is where most media attention locks in, splashing headlines of false romantic match-ups and speculations about her relationship with Weezy across the ‘net. “I’m still a human and things do hurt, but you can’t let people’s opinions define you because we’re all battling something,” she says of brushing up rumors, adding, “Me? Yeah, I’m definitely a fighter.”

While appealing to both African American-specific and mainstream audiences like a Top 40 pop record, Lauren’s personal life–the intimate details, at least–remains off-limits. Behind the curtain? A semi-vet who is admittedly in the business but not of it. “My life, my son’s life, my soul and who I am as a person means much more to me than the limelight,” she explains. “[Acting] is what I chose to do, not who I am.” No matter how much blogs try to peel back specifics, Lauren remains tight-lipped. “If they want to see more of me, go rent your movies or watch the show.”
Now, officially taking lead role reigns in BET’s fan-favorite sitcom The Game as flirty former child star Keira Whitaker, the Rachel Zoe-loving prima donna’s back on Hollywood geo-maps and rubbing elbows with Tinseltown’s brown-faced elite (see: Gabrielle Union, Loretta Devine, Regina King, Mekhi Phifer). Edit in: London’s forthcoming character as Paula Patton’s little sis and bride-to-be in David E. Talbert’s Baggage Claim, due later this year. “I’m engaged to Terrence J, which is awesome because he’s really like my brother in real life, so I love him.”
Any chance LL’s walking down the aisle anytime soon? “I’m not dating at all. I don’t know if I’ll have the time. But I’m very fiery and sassy, so I need someone to keep up with that.”
But there’s more to Lauren’s bark and bite. And apparently, we don’t know the half. — Niki McGloster

VIBE Vixen: Tell me about your beauty regimen? What are some of your must-haves?
Lauren London: I have to have MAC spiked [eyebrow pencil] and bronzer.

I know you’re hiding some beauty secrets, too.
[Laughs] As long as your eyebrows are clean and you have a clean face, you’re good to go.

Any style trends you’re anxious about or that you want to die this summer?
I’m really over everyone wearing Jordan’s, even though I wear Jordans [Laughs]. But I’ve been wearing Jordans since ’92. I really want everyone to put it away.

You don’t believe the girls rocking J’s are real Jordan heads?
No. I just feel like there are certain girls that never have worn them before.

Now, the photo shoot was very 70s inspired. How does that style era influence you today?
It influences everything. I love anything inspired by the 70s, from the music to the clothes. Capricorn has this joke that I dress like Stevie Nicks.

What celebrity or influences out there are killing the style trends across the board?
I love anything Cameron Diaz. Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham. I like Halle’s style. Charlize, she’s effortless. But I dress more like Drew Barrymore. I want Rachel Zoe’s closet

Who doesn’t? Who are your top 3 favorite designers?
Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and McCartney.
