Uh-Oh! Mya Gets Dirty
Like many pop starlets, Mya — best known for "My Love Is Like... Wo" — wants to be a movie star. She sang "Lady Marmalade" in the musical spectacle Moulin Rouge! and had a brief cameo as a merry murderess in Chicago. Currently, the sultry singer croons in Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, in which she appears as a nightclub performer.
"This is actually the first time I'm appearing in the movie and on the soundtrack," Mya tells TV Guide Online. "[My song] is a significant moment in the movie."
Despite her brief — blink and you missed it! — screen appearance, she was still thrilled to do it. No doubt part of her joy was shooting in Havana's lush location. "I got to go to Puerto Rico and have fun," the 24-year-old says. "It was a little bit of work and vacation."
