As we ready for BET’s 7th Season of “The Game” to return we sat down with one of its most interesting and sometimes irritating characters, Katylnn Simone who plays Brit-Brat. As a polar opposite to her character Katlynn is poise, confident, well spoken and so sweet. Check it out!

EV: I was first introduced to you as a singer with your song “Beautiful Lie”, which premiered during an episode of The Game. Tell me about your career and the process of getting out there with your singing talent, recording, and pushing into music.

Because music tends to be like the universal language in how we express ourselves.  

Katlynn: It was mainly friends, you know, just hearing stories, and even, you know, myself. Every girl has kind of gone through that kind of moment. We’ve all had our little crushes, and they’ve all broken our hearts at least once so, (laughs) um, I guess that.

I was very lucky for that to be my first writing job because it was so easy to write because it just came naturally, you know?

What can we expect from the “Beautiful Lie” Music Videokatlynn-simone-smith-brit-brat-bet-the-game-be-gravity_Erica_Vain

Katlynn: One thing that I’m really excited about is that I got to work with one of my really good friends, Khylin Rambo. He’s in the movie Ender’s Game that came out November 1st, and we’ve been good friends for a while since I moved to LA, and he was so nice enough to come out and do this music video with me. So you’re going to see pretty good acting from him. But other than that, it’s really a definition of the whole story of the song. There’s going to be that beautiful lie kind of fairy tale vibe to it, but at the same time it’s kind of a sad video at the same time. It’s not one of those happy endings that everyone kind of expects.

 You just finished shooting season 7 of “The Game” can we look to see more music from you soon?

Katlynn: Yeah, I am in the studio constantly right now. I just got through with three more songs and I plan on doing three more before, hopefully, January comes. I’m really excited about it. I’ve been working with a producer named First Born and we really click, so there’s going to be a different kind of vibe with it. We’re trying to bring kind of that old school feel to it, at the same time with this new school that’s going on, so that the younger crowd can you know get into it as well. But I’m very excited, y’all will be getting more music and hopefully we’ll put it on that BET market and we’ll just see what happens. But I think y’all are definitely going to like it.

Tell us about your character on The Game. You play Brittany Pitts. How do you get into the mode of portraying her because you seem like a completely different person than the person that you portray on screen.

Katlynn:  I hope so. I’m pretty sure I would have a pretty hard time in life in general if I acted like Brittany, but (laughing) um, I don’t. I really try to hone on the different issues that Brittany has to deal with, because a lot of people just come into it and think, “oh, she’s a spoiled brat”, and she is spoiled, but she is spoiled – like, I’m not going to lie and say she’s not, she is spoiled, but at the same time, she has a lot going on. She has so much, and you’re going to see that this season. You’re going to see that side where you can kind of sit back and be like, “oh, I kind of feel bad for Brittany now”, you know? So, right, I just say give her a break (laughing) and it’s easy, it’s easy for me to kind of get into that mode whenever you think about her backstory and everything she’s had to go through. But of course, it’s acting at the same time, so I guess that’s just how I do it.  I don’t know (laughing).

    Just to let you know, this content seems a little bit strange from my android phone. Who knows perhaps it really is just my mobile phone. Great post by the way.
