The R&B diva, who first charted in 1988 with the ballad Thanks for My Child, and more recently has scored feature roles in Tyler Perry’s stage plays,chats about her feeble attempts to glam out. “I’ve always been the hightop, Chuck Taylor kind of girl.  For a very long time, and even for my current album, Let Me Be Me, people would see me in New York and in jeans and sneakers and some kind of funky top,” Cheryl Pepsii Riley tells Conversations with Music host Cyrus Webb. “But when I’m doing my show, especially if it’s on TV, I start out in a glitzty dress and heels—I feel like my mamma’s gonna cuss at me if I don’t—but at some point in the performance, those heels usually come off. Because I got to be flat-footed when I sing. And I don’t want to think about wardrobe malfunctions.”
