Do Fries Go With That Shake, Vanessa Williams?

My interview with Vanessa Williams is up now over on the site GayWired.

Here's an excerpt:
"Well, the first time I heard myself on the radio I was driving north on La Brea in L.A. I had sung on a George Clinton record—one song was called 'Hey Good Lookin'' and one song was called 'Do Fries Go With That Shake?' I had just done an off-Broadway show in New York and the musical director, Deborah Barsha, and I both moved out to L.A. at the same time. She was a musician and a background singer, and she said, 'I got this call from this guy named George Clinton. I'm singing background. Do you wanna come in and sing with me?' I'm like, 'Do you know who George Clinton is?' and I had to school her briefly."

    How funny -- I vividly remember the "Fries Go With that Shake" video! She's awesome.

    Her new CD "The Real Thing" is just the right thing to play when you want to chill out. Its smooth & Jazzie.
    So multi-talented between her music career & playing the hilarious role of Vixen & Diva on "Ugly Betty"
