Saweetie is set to make her acting debut on ABC’s Grown-ish on January 21. The rapper will be making a cameo in the role of a ‘demanding’ rapper named Indigo.
Saweetie said of her character in the episode, “I think Indigo is just a little bit of a b**h. She means well, but just sometimes she says the wrong things.” She continued, “I wanted to make sure I delivered. I feel like with roles, whether if it’s an episode or in a music video, you always have to commit to the emotion of what you’re trying to portray. I thought it was cool, a little cheating but that’s okay: I played an artist and I’m an artist myself. But the girl’s attitude and personality is completely night and day with mine so I did have to learn about her. She’s a diva, she’s bossy.”
Saweetie is expected to make multiple appearances in Grown-ish. The 26-year-old is also set to release her Warner Bros. debut album Pretty B*tch Music this year.
