Omarion Explains Why it's Not The Time For A B2K Biopic

If you were looking forward to a B2K biopic, you might be in a for a long wait.

 

After sitting down with The Breakfast Club, former boy-band member Omarion said he has more to show of himself in his career before he embarks on telling his life story.

 

The R&B singer started off in boyband B2K in his early teens alongside Raz-B, J Boog and Lil Fizz (also known as Dreux from 'Love And Hip Hop'). Scoring a number of chart-topping singles, killer performances and a dance movie ('You Got Served'), B2K are still considered to be the last successful boy band, with the foursome breaking up in 2004. 

 

 

Whilst praising the BET New Edition Biopic on The Breakfast Club, the 32-year-old singer said that a biopic of himself and the group would indicate that he has nothing left to offer, saying: “I think it’s a time for that,” he said. “For me, when people you know, discuss that part of my history, I’m like, ‘You’re not even allowing me to fully transform. I’m not even…and you want to do a bio.’ When movies like that are done, that means it’s over.”

 

Describing New Edition as in the 'God-Levels', Omarion said that making a biopic would be 'the last step'. “Why do y’all wanna do a bio? I’m cool. I just feel like there’s a lot more layers and levels. I want to produce. I haven’t even started acting again. There’s just too much for me to do.”
