Carmen Electra tried a singing career back in 1992, and it never really took off (wonder why). Seems like the celeb wants to try again!
Carmen Electra knows she has one man to thank for her new dance single, “I Like It Loud.”
“Working with Prince many, many, many years ago, I got a little taste of what it was like to be on stage and in front of an audience and feel that energy,” the 40-year-old pin-up queen told Celebuzz during an interview at a behind-the-scenes rehearsal.
“Obviously my career has taken off in different directions — which I am very grateful for, I love acting — but deep down inside this is what I have wanted to do for so long.
“I have got to the point in my life where I have felt like I have to go for it. Now is the time.”
The dance-electronic track, which hit online stores Nov. 13, is the first song the 40-year-old former Baywatch babe has released since 1992 when her mentor, Prince, produced her self-titled album, “Carmen Electra.”
Twenty years later, Electra revealed all her success on other mediums has never been quite enough.
“In my heart and soul I wanted to get back to music… I feel emotional because it’s [been] my dream for so long,” she added.
The former Playboy Playmate shot to stardom when she replaced Jenny McCarthy as the co-host on the MTV dating series Singled Out in 1997, which parlayed into a movie career in such flicks as Scary Movie, Date Movie and Disaster Movie.
Call me crazy, but I do not remember her singing back in ’92. I had to look her up, and I’m not sure if I’m a better person for doing so. Check her music video for ‘Go Go Dancer’ below.
Now THAT made my day.
