OMG Girlz are a teenage group consisting of Star, Baby Doll and Beauty. They’re recently opened up on the Scream Tour and are working on their debut album, slated for release this fall. The girls visited The Breakfast Club to discusse their recent success, past members, dating, taking classes online, and they even play a game of “Keep It Short”.
Baby Doll is from Mobile, Alabama and was discovered on YouTube. She talks about getting the call saying, “That was crazy because I wasn’t expecting it. I was just sitting in the room with my mama so when I got the call from Aunty Tiny, I was like feeling so happy and blessed and when I went up there and did stuff for them, I was kinda nervous, but once I met everyone, they just treated me like family so it was a lot of fun.”
Star is the daughter of Tiny and has been featured on T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle. She talks about dealing with fame saying, “Our friends, they still treat us the same because we kinda grew up with them so they’re supportive of everything we do. We don’t really call ourselves being famous. Like when we go in the malls, we’ll walk anywhere and we’ll just think we can do those things but we can’t.”
Beauty is the self-admitted Diva of the group. Charlamagne noted that it seemed like the group blew up out of nowhere. “It took us about 4 years. We been in this group just doing this. Like for 4 years we was just rehearsing and practicing, We’re like if in 2012 if we’re still saying it’s going to be OMG or we quitting the OMG Girlz.”
The group was a quartette with Lil Wayne’s 10 year old daughter Reginae Carter. “She was in the group but her parents actually pulled her out. It was a big age difference. She was younger. Like our songs, we couldn’t talk about certain things like boys, it was different feelings.”
Beauty adds, “Right now she’s working on her own project I believe, but we’re all still really, really cool. She loves [Baby Doll] and we’re all really, really good friends and supportive of what each other is doing so there’s no animosity or anything like that.”
They talk about being the first female group on the Scream Tour. “Going into it, we were nervous like nobodies going to want to see us, everybody came to see boys. So that made us feel like, ‘We have to perform harder every night, we had to work harder than anybody else, we had to go harder.’ But it ended up being good, we found out we had fans in places we didn’t even know.”
