Gladys Knight Talks New Lifetime Christmas Movie, Idea for ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Gladys Knight has just wrapped filming a brand-new Christmas movie for Lifetime titled “Seasons of Love.”

Even though acting is nothing new for the 70-year old legend, she told Billboard she found the love scenes a bit challenging.

“It was a stretch for me because of the onscreen kiss,” she told Billboard. “I felt like I was cheating on my real husband.”

In the film, Knight co-stars with actress Taraji P. Henson, who plays her sister.

“It’s about young people figuring out how to get the special kind of love that my character and her husband have,” she says.

Knight is having a terrific month music-wise as well.

Her new gospel album, “Where My Heart Belongs,” debuted at No. 20 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart.

Gospel isn’t new for Knight, who said she often included an inspirational song when recording with The Pips.

“We (Gladys Knight & the Pips) always had that [gospel] element in our lives, part of the village that raises you,” she said.

Meanwhile, the singer, who competed on the 14th season of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars,” said she has one wish for the ABC show.

“I’d like to see dancers like myself given our own category and give the younger ones their category,” she said. “Then we’re competing with people equal in the category and not (becoming) the joke of the show.”
