AS: You know what, I wonâ€™t say my age. But the one way that I stay relevant is I donâ€™t let nothing buckle under my feet. Iâ€™m always into the next thing. Before you know, when you pop your eyes up, Angie stone is directing a TV show, Angie Stone is doing something. I just did two [TV] theme songs for Terri J. Vaughn. I have my own script and show thatâ€™s being developed right now. I donâ€™t look at this as a defining moment for me. Iâ€™m going on to the next. Iâ€™m really excited about writing a book. Iâ€™m very excited about being behind-the-scenes on a movie. My main thing is about being all I can be, not just being in front of the camera. I think a lot of people get consumed with just one aspect of [their career]. Iâ€™ve done three or four television theme songs. Iâ€™m looking for the next song that has people saying you made a hit, like with “Girlfriends.” You know what I mean? You didnâ€™t know that? (Laughs)
U: Yeah I didnâ€™t know you wrote the “Girlfriends” theme song! (Laughs)
AS: But I did. That was my first television theme song. Now Iâ€™m going to do three more. I just finished Rickey Smileyâ€™s television show and you know I work in avenues that give me life after life. Itâ€™s been sweet being in the game long enough and a lot of my friends you know, BeyoncÃ©, and all of the people that come to me just for advice, and we cool beans. They look at that and I look at them as, you know, we feed off each other. So itâ€™s just survival of the fittest.
