R&B singer Naturi Naughton recently opened up about her role in the forthcoming NBC show, "The Playboy Club," and how likely it is to see her in a future Playboy magazine spread.
Although there are no immediate considerations, Naughton said she has not ruled out a possible Playboy feature.
"A lot of people ask me that. You know, I'm an actress. I'm not a Playboy model. I'm not a Playmate. I'm not any of those things, which is nothing wrong with that but I'm just an actress playing a Playboy Bunny," Naugton explained in an interview. "Don't get it twisted. Not to say that I would never consider doing the magazine, but if I did pose it would definitely have to be classy and something respectable and something that I feel comfortable with. So who knows! I would never say never." (Loop 21)
In July, rapper Foxy Brown said she was debating a $2 million Playboy magazine offer.
"I live a different life," she says. "I'm not at every party; I'm not seen everywhere. That's why people still care about my brand. I've never whored myself out." She says she's still debating whether to accept Hugh Hefner's $2 million offer to pose on the cover of Playboy. (New York Post)
Earlier this year, R&B singer Toni Braxton opened up about getting an offer to appear in Playboy.
"They asked me and I was really flattered, they've asked me a few times in the past but one of the reasons I was more excited was because after I was sick and I didn't feel sexy and I thought I had lost my mojo," Braxton told television host Wendy Williams. "And when they asked me, I'm like, 'Do they still think I'm sexy? My boobies hang down to here a little bit.' So I was really flattered...I haven't decided. I have until June. One of the reasons I'm hesitant is because of my boys. I don't want their friends to come up to them at school and say, 'I saw your mommy's boobies.' You know? It wouldn't be a full spread."

The "Playboy Club" television series takes place in the 1960's.

Set in the 1960's, this series centers on the transformation of American culture and the social challenges that arise for men and women alike. (Sonoma State Star)
