I was almost too young to listen to all of Xscape‘s music as and when they were really hot, but as I got older and heard more, I could definitely relate to some of their lyrics.
LaTocha shared how she dealt with the breakup of Xscape:
Thank God, I have a great support system – my family. My son kept me busy with basketball and sports. I started writing about my life and that’s how my memoir came about. I just wanted to share my story with other women so that they could become inspired, especially with me being in the group and having the title of the “big girl.” I really wanted people to know who LaTocha was. That transition was a hard one, but I was able to throw myself back into work still.
What readers can expect and what she plans to reveal in upcoming memoir:
To be inspired and what it was like to be in a girl group in the 90s. It was a very hard thing coming up and it was a male-dominated industry. It was very difficult for us to break in, and even when we did, we had internal issues.
LaTocha also discussed her new non-profit organization, Golden Gyrl, which helps young women develop self-esteem:
With my foundation and mentorship, I’m able to talk to them and say what they’re dealing with. Loving yourself and believing in yourself is key because there is no way that you can love anyone else if you don’t love yourself. I really preach that and I tell them about my 5 golden rules: never doubt yourself, never procrastinate, never stop believing, never deny yourself, and never let anyone else’s negative opinion become your reality. Those are the things that I stand by.
