Five Things You Need to Know About My Crazy Girlfriend Before our Summer Kickoff
My Crazy Girlfriend is set to rock the Red River District stage on Tuesday, May 20. Let’s get to know them a bit more before then.
They Were All Roommates
My Crazy Girlfriend is made up of four roommates and best friends; Myah Marie, Bennett Armstrong, Justyn Armstrong, and Cosmo. The four moved in together in a Hollywood apartment. They were all trying to launch music careers separately, but would help each other out on their music. After not finding success and being evicted, the four decided to combine their musical powers into one phenomenal group.
Bennett and Justyn are Twins
The two Armstrong boys are fraternal twins. Their father is a Viennese pianist who sang back up for The Platters. They were discovered by Tricky Stewart at the age of 11, forming the duo 2XL. In 2007 the Armstrongs released an LP called Neighborhood Rapstar.
The Armstrongs Have an Impressive Resume
In their musical career prior to MCG, Bennett and Justyn collaborated with artists such as Bruno Mars, Kesha, Kara Dioguardi and The Writing Camp. They also worked on musical scores for television shows and movies like; "CSI: Miami", Four Brothers, Barbershop 2, and Bring It On 2.
Myah Worked with Britney Spears
Before MCG, Myah sang back up for Britney Spears on songs like "Circus", "Inside Out", and "Work." Many say her voice is eerily similar to Britney's. Myah is also a talented writer. She penned the song "Body Ache" for Brit-Brit, and wrote songs for the Armstrongs' duo 2XL.
Cosmo Comes from Rap Roots
Cosmo's father was a writer and rapper in Seattle so she spent much of her childhood in the studio. She distinctly remembers when her father was recording with Sir Mix-A-Lot. Once she was 18, she took off for Hollywood to work on dance music.
