Thanks for the great article on homegirl Mya (“Mature Themes,” 8/28). She’s a star that is on the rise, and, unlike other kiddie artists like Brandy, Monica, and Destiny’s Child, she’s not afraid to let her sexier side show in the case of her hit videos for “Ghetto Supastar” and “All About Me” and the girl can sing, too! She has paid her dues. Hard to believe that a year ago she was in high school. Now she’s singing and hanging out with the likes of Dru Hill, Slikk the Shocker, and even Ol’ Dirty Bastard and being with actors like Halle Berry and Warren Beatty, too. Mya, you go, girl. D.C. is proud of you!
