EXCLUSIVE: Adrienne Bailon Talks 'I'm in Love with a Church Girl'

I'm in Love with a Church Girl is a lot about the importance of having faith. Would you say that’s the most vital message you want viewers to get out of it?

I want them to get the message that anything is possible; that if you want to change your life tomorrow, it absolutely can happen. You can become anything you want to become. If you decide you want to change your life around, it doesn’t matter where you came from, what you did, if you were incarcerated or you are from the projects, if you are an uppity kid who came from a really wealthy family and all of them do drugs and are into that life -- it doesn’t matter, come as you are and God does his work. I hope they get the message of faith in the sense that believing in something greater than yourself really helps you get through life so much easier. So for me it’s really not about religion, but a relationship with God is the message we want to get across.

For you, what was the best part about doing a movie like this one?

I think it sounds weird, but I’ve always played younger than my age, so I think finally being able to play a role that is realistic for my age (I’ll be 30 this year). For me being able to play a grown woman was a lot fun! I got to do all these things I really, really look forward to in the future.

Speaking of the future, what's up next for you?

The Real comes back in 2014, so I'm excited about that. I'm also going back to the studio pretty soon. We're getting my nail polish line [Fingertip Fetish] into stores now, which is exciting! I want to get back into doing my clothing line, so fingers crossed, maybe it’s something I’ll be doing. Timing is everything.
