Actress Meagan Good has revealed the backstory behind the controversial blue gown she wore to the BET Awards over three years ago that upset many people in the Black church community and continues to be a topic that she's asked to address.
During an interview on "The Wendy Williams Show" on Jan 18, Good said she wouldn't have worn such a revealing dress had she known that she would be presenting a gospel music award, which was a last-minute decision made by the organizers of the annual awards show.
Good set the record straight. "Let me clarify," she said, addressing the criticisms she's faced since the 2013 BET Awards. "I didn't even know I was presenting a church award. It was done last minute. They just changed it. I didn't feel that I was inappropriate, but obviously I learned really quick that people had a problem with that." If Good had it to do over again, she said that she would still have chosen something risque. "I would've worn a different dress, but it still would've been sexy."
The plunging neckline of her royal blue Michael Costello gown extended from neck to navel, exposing what many described as too much cleavage and inappropriate attire for presenting a Christian gospel music award.
Although the gown was considered by many to be over-the-top, Good said that she has been acclimated to such attire by her Hollywood roots. "People are like, 'Well, you need to dress appropriately.' I'm like, 'Well, I grew up in the business doing shows off Broadway with drag queens. This is appropriate to me, and DeVon likes it.'"
